    slightly big in the shoulders, but looks great on him overall. i'd have knotted the tie differently, but still, i'd give him a 9.5 outta 10.

    I see he went for the Tom Ford TM shoulder.

    I like it, but I think the button placement is just strange. Maybe it's the width of each breast.

    Gotta love the dimplets. They bring the sexy. By the way, what happened to your experiment with Manton over the weekend?

    I think the sleeves are too tight and I hate the pocket square.

    The button spacing looks very wide, especially on the top two.

    well, with the arm the way it is, it is tough to gauge as that position pulls at the shoulder/chest etc (it's probably a bit tight as he like his stuff way tight) Plus, I am very biased as, while Mory seems like a nice guy, everyone else at Pisano are tools and I refuse to throw any compliments in that direction.

    I'd agree that the button stance isn't doing him any favors.

    I think we are looking to do it at the end of this week, or next weekend. I think it is hysterical that people think the shoulder is too big. It is as though if the shoulder were even shorter, they think that his shoulder muscle would stop popping out. Makes a lot of sense [​IMG].

    This is an Eredi Pisano suit? Makes sense. There's something very obnoxious about it.

    What are dimplets, baby dumplings?

    Bad picture to assess fit but I think the jacket is cut too straight, or is it too crooked. I'm not sure what that means but it sounds right.

    I think the misconception is that if the shoulder ended sooner, it wouldn't cave into the empty space above the deltoid. But what's funny is the way a misconception from AB's many threads is now infecting unrelated threads, and unnknowledge (groupthink) is being spread.

    The suit's fit is fantastic and I love the fabric. The peak lapels are little exaggerated for my taste, and I would have preferred a darker tie and better knot. The buttons also look a little weird. I absolutely LOVE the pocket square and the fold. Most importantly the look "fits" him. Overall a solid nine out of ten. [​IMG]
