Does anyone know of a bespoke tailor that has the capability to make a leather jacket that is lined completely in cashmere (so that it is reversible)? After seeing the Louis Vuitton Leather/cashmere jacket in esquire, I have known that a jacket of that sort is my dream jacket. However, I have read that the jacket has a $5,000 price tag and I have never seen it for sale anywhere. Thus I was wondering if there were bespoke tailors that work in leather and have that...
anyone? would they need to be made bespoke at this point?
I saw these alexander mcqueen boots and was wondering if anyone knew where to get a pair or a similar balmoral boot with that unique rear lace up detail. I just thought that it was a fairly unique cool addition to a balmoral boot. Thank you guys in advance, Ben

as an aside from my orginal question, can a bespoke tailor remake a suit from a pre-existing suit (as in a suit that I already own)? I am wondering because I have a suit that I love the fabric of, and it has sentimental value to me but the trouser waistband is going downhill, etc. Could a tailor at least put a new trouser waistband and pocketing in the pants, and new lining in the jacket?
