With long limbs and a narrow torso Max explained that Off-the-Peg rarely works for him. But when people think of tailoring they often think it's just suits - not Max's style, so he'd never had anything made for him before.
It was great fun to work on something a little unusual and to show how traditional tailoring techniques can complement any personal style.
The high stand and fall collar is far more flattering to a slighter frame than lapels and the self-covered buttons keep it from looking too militarian.
