There is a thread on AAAC that shows Prince Charles in what may be a DB tweed odd jacket. Any thoughts on whether it is or not...
I am considering having a double breasted tweed odd jacket made. Do any fellow members have any experience with them? If so, any suggestions regarding weight, cloth etc. would be appreciated.
What is the difference between a dinner jacket and a tuxedo? Is a dinner jacket just the jacket from a tuxedo? Also, what kind of trousers can be worn with a dinner jacket? Thanks.
Thanks for the responses.
Does anyone know of any establishments that sell by mail order shoe polish from La Cordonnerie? Cheers.
