    Cool logo. Gives some visual interest.

    I'm interested in the shoulders on this jacket - there's a line of stitching on the shoulder, which I thought was the necessary and sufficient condition for a spalla camicia, but then it doesn't really look like a spalla camicia...is that just the angle/pose in the photo?

    Color-wise, this looks good, but the lapels look too wide to me.

    According to Patrick (Johnson), this is just a top-stitch done by hand; the suit does not have spalla camicia shoulders but a plain, natural shoulder with minimal padding.

    That pocket square looks familiar, ColdEyedPugilist. Drake's tiger?

    Interesting...so the seam allowance on the sleevehead is not pressed to the shoulder and stitched by that topstitch? it's just decorative?

    Not sure, actually, Pat's website mentions the AMF top-stitch. Not clear if it's merely decorative ot functional.
