    Looking good Retro Spectator. I managed to get a suit together once with some British Army Blue dress trousers (with the high waist and pleats) and a Burton's the Tailors jacket - the fabric is an eerily close match. It's never let me down yet, although I tend to wear other stuff more often now.
    If you're handy on the sewing machine, you could just tailor the waist on that jacket to give a bit more of a 1940's look.

    Will post more of the tweed soon enough. This one has a biswing back. My friend Erin took the shot at her annual Winter Formal.

    Plaid!

    Pretty much like the suit from ROPE without but the vest is at home.

    I think a two-button coat would suit you better.

    I think a month of jogging would suit me better.

    Swimming (as i do) is a better choice: at least no dowdy clothing is required!

    New member here. I've been into classical menswear for a couple years now. I hope to learn a lot from this community. Here are some of my bespoke suits.

    Absolutely lovely work! Welcome to the Lounge! Those are impeccably done, in fit and style. I particularly love the double breasted vest on that navy suit. While it is sometimes considered impertinent to ask, is your tailor Steed? I think I've seen that double-breasted suit in some of their materials.

    Thank you. Yes my tailor is Steed. Their house style yields a dramatic silhouette, especially when seen from eye level (these pics are taken from chest height). Extended shoulders, full sleeves, drape over the chest, and a pronounced pinch at the waist.

    Welcome to the Lounge, Bespokewrinles. I second Patrick, especially the blue suit. That double breasted vest looks spot on, something that one doesn't see often in modern suits, even bespoke.

    Beautiful suits, Bespokewrinkles. I'm glad to see the double breasted suit's lapels are spot on!

    Fantastic suits, Bespokewrinkles. I've been hankering after a DB waistcoat for a while now. Too bad I live in a sartorial desert. :(

    Thank goodness there is no accounting for taste. However, even the homeliest of orphans deserves a good home...

    Dentist's waiting room? Or perhaps the barber?
