    I think that the jacket length is fine,it doesn't make you look short or anything. More importanly,how does it feel compared to your RTW stuff?

    It feels good. I can feel it hugging my neck especially.

    Also, one of the biggest pluses for me is the back balance. A lot of my RTW had back balance issues where the vents splay open. It'd drive me crazy and I'd spend $$$$ to have the jackets taken up at the neck to correct.

    I'd like to see a 3 to 2.5 with seksy roll,I think that would compliment those lapels. What are the prices like?

    +1 on the lapels. All your adjustments should make the suit stellar. What's the lead time?

    You know that if you take the shoulders in, you'll have to reign in that lapel width a little, right? Otherwise the lapels will cover 80% of your chest and will look out of proportion. They already look quite wide but will even moreso when shoulders are narrower.

    I like it Trini. Agree about toning it down a hair. Slightly less shoulder and spread the buttons out.

    I like lapels that cover 100% of the chest.

    ^[​IMG] Ed. I like it Trini. As everyone said, from your snapshot it looks a little wide on top especially with the narrow trou, but seems like a great start with the new tailor. I quite like the armscye shape and the bit of extension/droop. Boss combo with the tie and suede loafers, too.
