    I'm warming up to the lower roll. I've got two gray DBs, this is the super 110s from harrisons - also have a flannel from smiths.

    Nice suit even if double breasted are not my cup of tea.

    That is a very nice DB. Can you get fitted from beginning to end in New York for a suit?

    For years I felt that way about double breasted suits myself ... but I've changed my mind. That's not to suggest that you too will change yours one day ... but ...

    I like the suit. Keep posting!

    You can, yes. Though I would argue a trip to Naples should be in the cards - you'll want to deal directly with the folks making your clothes.

    I always enjoy both your clothes on their own and how you put together your outfits, whnay. You do yourself a disservice with the photography. I'd love to see some of your outfits with better pictures, so we can really appreciate everything.

    +1 ... Post more and better photos. If it's not too cold ... perhaps you could take a few outside ... in good lighting. Your part of Atlanta has such a truly beautiful out-of-doors!

    Bill, are the shoulders going to "drop" or are they staying that way (have a mental block about the name of the fabric rolled up a bit at the sleevehead). Also, is the pic angle making the peaks look higher than they really are?

    This picture was taken with my iphone just before I left for dinner with friends. I'm heading to London in a few weeks to pick up a large order from LH. I'll be sure to take good pictures.

    Peaks look a lot higher due to the angle. Not sure what your asking up front?

    Look wonderfully even with the no-so-good picture, take another one outdoor with a proper camera.

    the sleevehead, what's it called,the fabric roll?? jeez, can't believe I forgot. Just wondering if that will go away and the shoulders more natural. I guess what I am asking is are the shoulders spalla camicia or are they "regular"
