The suiting thread

They are so incovenient to open! And even less convenient to button back. I just couldn't be bothered.
If one wants working cuffs that are actually convenient to use, this Japanese solution (on a magnificent jacket) is hard to beat:

It is fashion nowadays to wear trousers at the hips, like jeans. Cut them any higher and each and every customer will say you make an uncle cut. Traditionally, trousers sit just below the natural waist. Admittedly, this is a very dated look nowadays. The brown line is where I guess the natural waist to be.
I personally have trousers higher than yours but lower than natural waist.
Notice the "whisker" pulling on the front of trews near fly. This is a textbook sign that the trews are too tight.
The advantage to having high rise trews is that you don't look like your trews are about to expose your buttcrack, however attractive a sight that may be.
AL needs to take up the trousers at the back and let out the thighs to achieve a clean back of trews (like in my pic above).
Would the trews not look infinitely better if they had the silhouette I marked out in a navy line below?
However, there is very little acceptance for such drapey trews. Customers clutch the back of their thighs and ask the tailor WTF all that cloth is there for. They are there for the look, my dear, the look.

OR two, i must've put on some weight in between the time when i went for that last fitting with kotmj and when the suit was finalized. i suppose i had been working out quite a bit at the gym in that period.

The puckering due to short seams and the slightly incorrect curvature of sleeves are the only two problems with the coat. Everything else is pretty much OK. The spotlights accentuate the inevitable ripples in the very thin cloth. What is remarkable is that the shoulder has a very definite line despite being padded only with a single ply of polyester!
The trousers have the usual problems endemic of every tailor. Quite unavoidable with slim fits.
