    That's a great price. Definitely let us know how they turn out. I wouldn't mind something like that for the cooler months.

      I'd be lying if I said this was my first suit with him. The quality and fit are excellent, as well as the detailing thats offered.

      EDIT: In the past I went with a much slimmer fit and a more trendy look, but for this one I opted for a fuller cut, so we'll see how that one turns out. fingers crossed.

      Here's a pic of my first suit (wedding suit) for reference -

        Did you make any changes to the shoulder this time around? From the side Idk how much I like the expression vs something a bit less soft. Overall very nice though. Amazing price too. Wish we had someone like him in Houston. Closest thing is Sid Mashburn.

          Hey LR - I did make some changes, most notably opening up the armhole and putting a little more padding in there. I originally went with the soft shoulder because of my really broad shoulders, and TBH, it's not the best picture. Yeah it's really a great value. I'm positive he makes trips to the west coast LA area often - I know that doesn't really help you much, but LA is definitely closer to you then NY.

          EDIT: Better Angle. Don't mind the wrinkling, I was moving around a lot at this point.

                    My Wolverine 1000 Mile Addison boots in tan.

                    I treated them with Obenauf's Heavy Duty LP a couple of weeks ago and wore them several time since.

                    P.S. The background is two yards of white felt I bought from Jo-Ann fabric. Cheap, not very reflective, and doesn't have a repeating pattern.

                          I do see rolls so it is quite possible that it is cordovan. But at the lowest point of the rolls, I see creases that look like ones that come from calfskin. Can you zoom into the rolls/creases?
