The author actually seems to know a bit so I'd almost be inclined to take him at his word. If that's true, it's pretty impressive. Totally unnecessary but impressive.WSJ said:Noriyuki Higashi, a 34-year-old who makes suits in Osaka under the Sarto Domenica brand, is so fascinated by Neapolitan suit-making that after returning home from a stint in Naples and taking a day job, he spends nights and weekends making jackets. Unlike every other Neapolitan-style tailor I know of in Japan or Italy, Higashi also does everything by hand and nothing with a sewing machine.
Although the coat looks technically good there's something amiss. It doesn't flatter him like it should.
+1. It doesn't help that the mannequin behind him fills out the coat properly. The waist and chest of this jacket make it look like he just lost a lot of weight or is borrowing his dad's jacket. Plus, given his shoulder slope, I think something with a bit more structure would do him good. The color palette is also terrible (far too saturated beige in the jacket, shirt and tie). However, that's a bit more subjective.

I think he could benefit from a fuller chest. Dude's obviously rail thin so a little drape would do him good.
I might agree with you on the waist but I'd want to see it with a not-uber-low button stance before saying he needs the waist taken in.
I'm cool with unpadded shoulders even if they're sloping. I don't think anyone has ever mistaken him for a linebacker and I'm willing to bet that isn't what he's aiming for.
Also, why is he showing like OVER AN INCH of cuff?
