Mike, for me it's just the laces and the leather patch that gives them the edge. Anyway they don't come cheap, I'll check them out in the sales or better try to find them in my holidays in the basque coast of France  8)

Anyone ever bought a suit from Adam Shener? What did you think? I've only ever bought his shirts  http://www.adamoflondon.com/aol_newshop/

I have a couple, (if I were in the neighborhood more, I'd have another  ;)) I like them, nice fit on me for OTP, they're nice quality...

Fair enough GS, but for me, I can just see my trousers constantly getting caught on them  :)

BTW, that does sound like a great holiday...

The quality is v similar to a JTG suit - I think they might even be made by the same company. Personally I prefer JTG's because of their "short" jacket fit. AoL's seem to fit more like a JTG "regular". It's not a preference in terms of quality, it's just about the fit.

I think many on here would agree they're both among the best OTP mod suits available.

Very good quality, trousers a little bit 'floaty' for my tastes but I got them taken in. Jacket waists are gorgeous, lovely and nipped in.

Agree with Steve, trousers a little wide in the bottom, but an overall great fit (for OTP, of course) and good quality.

BTW Steve, I saw the YMC deck shoes and I liked them very much; in fact, I'm tempted by a pair in dark green suede, but out of my budget at the moment  :(

I love the cut of the trousers personally. Nicely fitted through the hip and thigh with a slick kick flare at the bottom. I'm using them as a template for a couple of pairs of lightweight summer trousers I'm getting made tomorrow.

If you go on Yoox mate, they have a pair on there in blue I think down to 25/35 sort of price?
