    -I'm thinking of doing the topmost button at neck, and the cuff buttons in a smoky grey MoP while the rest of the buttons down the front placket would be clear MoP, just for a slight visual interest

    yea? nay?


    i think all smoky grey MoP buttons on a white shirt would look awesome IMO...

    Yes it's going to be made, I just need to figure out what type of white fabric, and get my first samples to see what needs to be tweaked.

    Here's a vote for pinpoint. Or something like oxford cloth/twill, but I don't think you mentioned those as options

    I like the idea but I don't think I would actually wear it. I'm an all or nothing kind of guy. so....nay.

    all clear, or all smoky gray would both be cool though. btw, I think the shirts are a great idea.

    The shirts arent going to be oxfords since the overall style isnt suited for it. I'm probably going to go with the pinpoint, since that kind of fabric is dressier than oxford but not as polished as poplin. Shirt wont be buttondowns, not these at least. They will be small collar'd (regular spread) simple minimalist white dress shirt, something that will fit appropriately with most of my suits.

    I have a white dress shirt with grey MoP for all the buttons, it's cool for sure. I will probably end up going with all buttons the same, the more I think of it. Tho my samples will have the off color buttons I mentioned.

    Woo, small collars are exactly what I want. I think grey buttons on the cuffs and top button could be a great subtle addition... can't wait to see it.

    Finally got around to taking some pics of my suit...it's a charcoal flannel 2B, peak lapel house cut, with jacket lengthened by 1" from house cut. I'm pretty satisfied with the fit, but am definitely interested to hear feedback from Jason and others. My main beef is that the pants seem too snug in the thigh and butt (as you can see in the pics without the jacket on), which seems to be causing the rear part of the pant opening to move backward. The hems look almost "flared" in the "profile" pics as a result...there's definitely something funky going on. Any suggestions on how to fix this would be much appreciated. (Or any other suggestions for alterations/how to improve the fit). Thanks!

    Korce, the seat can be let out a bit, about 3/8-5" on each side of the seam should be just right for you (same for thigh if you need it). hard to tell since it's dark pic, but the trouser look like another 1" lower on the hem might give you the just right "no break" point, right now it looks a smidgen short

    Would appreciate any critiques of mine as well. 2-button conservative cut, charcoal pinstripe. Intended to have 1" break (probably did too much -- my fault, not Jason!). I have a 10" drop so that explains the extreme taper. Wearing with AE Drydens and a bespoke shirt from Ernesto's in Philadelphia. Ok I can't figure out how to upload the pics like korce did ... I hate clogging up threads with huge pics. Front and rear [​IMG] [​IMG] Left and right [​IMG] [​IMG] Remainder of pics, including some w/o jacket so slacks are more visible, are here in this Photobucket album. Any help/comments are greatly appreciated! Overall I'm very happy with the purchase and once I get the overall design tweaked, I'm gonna order more ... got a wedding to attend in Tokyo in a few months and the TaT suits would be perfect for that.

    Ace, I think you need to get the suit pressed first. But from the pictures it looks like the sleeves could be shortened. You also need a slimmer tie to match the lapels.

    ...wore my (2nd TaT, medium grey) suit this past weekend, and it was enough to convince that a third is in order.

    I almost want to be a full time academic solely so I can suit it up for work everyday.

    I'm pretty sure I'm going tweed this time. Jason, expect an email soon, I only need to adjust one measurement this time around.

    I suspect some of the issues people have with the pants is due to the very low rear rise. Typical modern low (not extreme) pants have something like 10" front and 14.5-15" back rise.

    My first pair came with about 10" front and 13.5" back, worn at what I think is the right height the rear seam pulls in (unsightly) and the back drape is thrown off. My second pair I went to about 15" back rise and these problems disappeared.

    Here are pictures of 2 pants from tobi, the low rise ones are 13.5" back the others a still low 14.5", front rise is the same.

    Ouch ... the suit actually had come back from the dry cleaner's for cleaning and pressing. [​IMG]

    I agree that the sleeves could use shortening to show a bit more shirt (and also on the tie comment).

    Jason, I noticed on the site that the 'standard wool' does not appear to be available in navy. Are there plans to add any standard navy colors?

    The only non-flannel navy wool seems to be the 'dark navy' upgraded wool, but this looks to be a bit lighter than what I think of as a typical navy (could be my monitor). Do you have any pictures of this fabric in the flesh?

    no there arent any good 'standard' navy fabrics that I like

    the upgraded navy i have is quite dark, it's similar to midnite blue, maybe not that dark, but it's definitely not light at all (in color)
