Sometimes yes, sometimes no. You will get some creasing if you leave it on so I am more inclined to take it off. Summer more likely yes, winter more likely no. I think most well made MTM can deliver a well fitted higher arm hole which is preferable and increases arm mobility.Question: do you take your suit jacket off while driving?
That is certainly one option, but my problem is do I really have to go bespoke to get a armhole high enough that won't give me any constraint while I'm driving? I don't think there are that many RTW brands that cut a higher armhole than my Canali slim suit.Perhaps just take the jacket off while driving? Free solution?
Probably. But try an off-the-rack Southwick jacket first. I have pretty good arm mobility when wearing my RTW Southwick sport coats.[D]o I really have to go bespoke to get a armhole high enough that won't give me any constraint while I'm driving?
That’s why Attolini and similiarly priced brands (among them, Brioni, Kiton and Oxxford) are a colossal waste of money. Outside of quantity of hand stitching in many cases, bespoke is far better in every way for so much less.Cesare Attolini MTM should fill the bill at about 150% the cost of bespoke.
I just find it ridiculous to not be able to drive comfortably with the suit jacket on.Who are you trying to impress with your James Bond impersonation while driving? Movie directors often make choices that don't square with reality just because they think it will film better.
