Rees Mogg looks like one of those clever types who wax lyrical about buying second hand ‘bespoke’.

“Yes it is Henry Poole, look at the label! Wonderful stitching and it is very heavy cloth from the era when there was no heating. Hangs so much better. The chap who it was made for was a lot heavier than me, but I got an alterations tailor to take up the sleeves and trousers and you would hardly notice. Savile Row quality always shines through!”
I get you guys don't think it looks "cool". Perhaps the style is not for you. But the claims that this is a suit for a much taller and fatter man are laughable at best, and at worst shows a profound lack of understanding of a how a suit should fit. This really comes as no surprise. A quick viewing of the what you are wearing now thread shows a preference for S&M rtw and disGustin massdrops, along with sloppy ill fitting and styled second hand clothes found in garbage bins down under. I know you guys like to shit on Pitti fits and SF losers, and I'm with you. But JRM is as far from that look as one can imagine. It seems the GQ and "cool guys" have taken over this forum. Quite sad. I would love to see pictures of what you believe are a proper fitting suit, in a traditional British style. I have attached another photo of the same suit and see no issues with the fit.

Sounds very much like a spin on what I call ‘The Crompton Defence”.

When somebody questions the great man about divots on his £5000 jacket, or various other imperfections, his response is that good tailoring is simply impossible to photograph.

So, Kingstonian old chum, what do you think of Crompers' latest £5000 jacket from Ciardi? And don't you love it how how he always uses Christian names for the great and good? Enzo did this. Davide did that. Such good service from Agyesh.

It’s lovely, of course, and at only £2600 it is something of a bargain. I also love the vintage heavy weight tweed that nobody else can get hold of. Goes well with a denim cowboy shirt and rock and roll badge.

I note another line that could be useful. ‘Clean lines are often at the expense of comfort’.

quite the contrary. i beleive good tailoring is able to be photographed, I even posted more pictures of it. no one was nit picking or saying nothing can be understood from a photo. the gist of the criticism was the guy lost 150 pounds and the suit was too big and for a much much taller man. My point was that i think you guys just don't like the style and there is nothing at all wrong with the tailoring. but if you see a problem with the tailoring of JRM's please enlighten us. I'd actually agree with you if his arms had divots, or the collar or shoulders were off. But they are not. It looks like a comfortable well fitted suit.

Comfortable ? Yes. Well fitted? Not so much.

It looks as if the tailor could stand behind him as he gazes into the mirror and grab a handful of excess cloth to improve the look.

Mogg is a tall, thin chap but even so he should not be completely swamped by a suit - double breasted or single.

Jordan Peterson is certainly dressing better these days. Looks like he is in bespoke and is now hiring a stylist.


compared to before:
wood forest bank hours of operation

and the extract video which explains why he looks better. How much do you earn?....he comes straight out with it.
I've noticed the improvement in his sartorial presentation over the last several months and with that kind of money coming in, I can see why. He's gone from maybe top but minor academic circa 80-100K English pound equivalent, or maybe less than that, to big time surgeon or rock star money. Well played that man.

It is an English look and whilst constructed for the English cool of ultimate comfort, the silhouette is old fashioned. Personally, I prefer a slightly more tailored look with a whiff of English eccentricity in the shirt cloth. I would like to see JRM channel a bit more of the rakishness of Alan Clark, but unlikely to do his long term political career any good.

He certainly has kept his youthful metabolism.
