Oh, very nice!
Position of the pockets a little different as well.

I really like this Vivienne Westwood suit.
The way the button fastening slopes shouldn't work but somehow does!

I like it. Double breasted cut with single breasted fastening. Not seen that done before.

This cracker from SmedleyxUmbro. Imagine the collar will divide people though.

Very nice, I like the black one a bit more.

Haha!...and the pocket square.
The jacket? Not sure about it, a quirky design detail added for the sake of it?
Or a clever detail that sets it apart from a lot of other jackets out there??
Not sure.

Fair point. But I think it stays on the right side of acceptable. If it was some "S" curve or "zig-zag" or something, then maybe it would stray into the "quirky" territory. As it is, it could almost go unnoticed.

As for the shirt, tie and pocket square combo, I've been blocking all that out with my two thumbs!

Hahaha! Didn't think of that Ken, I should've tried it.
As for zig-zag button closures? You may be on to something there...

Love the way this fastens, sure i've seen it done somewhere else though.  Fastens a bit too high for me, being a 44 chest i'd look ridiculous in it.  Would work great with a lower fastening, and bottom button undone, or maybe the bottom button omitted altogether.  Zigzag style was done in the 80s i'm pretty sure (not on the Mod scene i hasten to add, just part of the general nightmare that passed for fashion in those days).

the shoulders are a bit harsh on it though - a bit 'Dallas/Dynasty'

Like it.

would do it a little different, like another fabric, but I'm digging it.
