another variation with the new Luxire jacket    
except these are from Portugal, right? Call it the Evora.
 I did not send them a jacket. As I said above, I had a hard time finding anything close to the shape/fit that I wanted OTR. So this jacket represents an amalgamation of several different jackets from which I took measurements, which included a lot of careful cross-checking to make sure everything jived and didn't present conflict. I mostly took measurements from one of my Southwick suit jackets, but used shoulder measurements from a jacket with unconstructed shoulders in...
 Thanks! Yeah, they nailed the measurements. I was ready for this to be an experiment and possibly-wearable, but I was really pleasantly surprised by how great it turned out both in terms of fit and in terms of having all the features/measurements I asked for.

 I can wholeheartedly recommend that austerity brogue but will warn that the Simpsom last is narrow. I normally wear a 7UK in Carmina shoes but my simpsom-last austerity brogues are a 7.5UK. Carmina themselves recommend people go a half size up on that last.
