    Very smart and clean, guitarmasta12! Neaopolitan tailoring has ever been very interesting, and not very subjected to fashion. I think your suit it's more 50s/60s, judging from the cut of the lapels, the shoulders and the pants. Anyway, it's great and I'd bet it fits like a glove!

    Just an hint: neapolitan jackets nearly always have a soft lapel roll, and the coat is meant do be buttoned only at the middle button. Just check the cavas to be sure, you will look even better with a 3-to-2 roll! The lapel could also have been pressed to the top button by some lazy dry-cleaner.

    Really smart guitarmasta! The fedora goes well even if the tone looks a little different.

    I read that the original Mount Everest crew led by Tenzing, wore 3-piece woollen suits and the climbers buttoned up all of their buttons on their suits, unlike modern man who seems to leave the bottom button undone when standing upright.

    It looks like a smart enough suit to do either way. Great fit btw!

    Great suit, DM. Love such straight DBs, specially those lapels are stunning.

    Lovely.
    How'd you get that tailor-made for you decades before you were born?

    I am flabbergasted: What a great collection of well fitting suit, you showed us in the last weeks!
    I have to agree with HBK: Really dig that Krett & Sons, but the mid gray bespoke one is a beauty, too.

    I second the admiration of the Krett & Sons. Along with the mid-grey with windowpane. This is not a mere suit collection, it's more like a film studio's wardrobe department!

    Thank you. The Krett & Sons is a gem. Btw, no alterations were made to the torso, shoulders, neck or whatever. Just sleeve length. The only exception is the solid grey DB below which was taken in at the side seam by half an inch.
    Here are the final two suits and I think this concludes our little series of the past few weeks.

    1930s-40s (UK) DB unlabeled
    Wool flannel, grey chalkstripe
    30s cut leg, with 10.5" hem which you can't see very well with the breeze flapping the trousers.

    And not only is Rabbit an inspiration to all Loungers, he is also a one-man industry, keeping wardrobe makers and moth ball manufacturers in steady business! :D
