By the way, who was the shirt made by and at what price?
This jacket is not "shopworn", it is damaged. The photographs clearly attest to that. The presence of tags means nothing in light of the state of the collar. The only right thing to do is to give a full refund. That that course is is in question is unconscionable.
There are so many! Two that come to mind that are somewhat offbeat are the original Casino Royale for David Niven's Edwardian clothing and the comic gem A New Leaf. I highly recommend ANL to all who have not seen it. The character played by Walter Matthau wears superb bespoke clothing. The tailor is shown briefly in one scene and is credited at the end of the film. The tailor's name I have forgotten, but his name has been posted on this forum.
Are the solids one size or individually sized?
Well, I'm sorry that I can't give you any additional advice. I can tell you that my brother-in-law had a 24 in drop while playing college football in the sixties. Six foot three, 56 inch chest and a 32 inch waist.
Yes, I have worn a pocket square in the breast pocket of my chesterfield. Most often I tuck my hogskin gloves (a very pale yellow) in the pocket. I receive compliments from mostly older gentlemen of my acquintance who seem to appreciate such touches.
In my early twenties I had a navy blazer made with four deep internal pockets (I wanted one in each tail but my tailor refused). With the deployment of the two outer pockets I was able to order six beers at last call, along with two to three on the bar to shotgun. Postscript: I have been sober for over twenty five years.
Henry Stewart made all of "Bobby's" clothing for The Untouchables. De Niro was a client at the time. He told me that he made all of the clothing exactly as it would have been made in the thirties. He was rather contemptuous of Cosner wearing Armani.
Uh, a six foot tall transvestite?
From Amy Vanderbilt's Complete Book of Etiquette, 1954 edition: " Even for quite formal occasions the best-dressed men wear white soft front, pleated, or plain collar-attached (or separate starched collar) shirts and, in summer, even button-down collar shirts with bottoned wristbands." I am from Detroit, specifically Grosse Pointe Farms. I have seen the practice under discussion for years, though it has never been the choice of the majority. It seems to be something...
