    My first bespoke suit comes from William Field of Field English Custom Tailors in Georgetown. It's a French navy blue with sky blue chalk stripe in 11 oz. Anglia cloth. The suit is a good representation of Will's house style - very akin to Henry Poole's where his father learned the trade.

    Looks nice!

    Interesting juxtaposition of background objects. An Ayn Rand poster and a library of climate change policy books?

    Thank you for posting these. Great to see something from one of SF's most mentioned but little seen tailors.

    How do you feel this compares to your RTW? Will you commission more?

    J. Cogburn, looks like a superb understated suit cut in English tradition.

    Congratulations!

    The shoulders might be a little too wide (to my eyes)... though it's difficult to say based on photos alone.

    I've never warmed up to DB and but that fit is quite good. If I could get a DB to fit like that, I might be willing to wear them.

    I see a little excess fabric on the upper back and and the lower rear sleeve head but I wonder, is that the suit or is it you?
    Are you standing more erect posing for the photograph then you were during the fitting?

    I like your choice of blue on blue stripes -- more subtle then white on blue. But, I'm pretty conservative.

    I wish you had added a pocket square, that would've enhanced the look and broken up the monotony of that great swath of blue fabric across you torso. I've always thought that DB need!!!!! a pocket square.

    Not fond of the tie. It doesn't seem on par with the quality of the suit. I hate that pattern -- don't care for bow ties either.

    I'd like to see the fit in the context of a full length shot. I suspect the true quality of the fit is not well captured by these photographs

    Next time you wear it, try a straight tie, pocket square and get a full length shot with shoes -- Post that picture.

    I like the suit. However, those shoulder divots would drive me nuts on a bespoke piece.

    Just saw this after your WAYWRN post. Thanks for sharing & posting. Bumping Doc's question re: fit between this and your RTW.
