It is called Prince of Wales or Glen Plaid. Not that it helps because this category is extremely broad:
Not a bad looking coat. I had no idea that proper cloth had outerwear. However, it doesn't look warm. If that is an issue, O'Connells has a wide selection of more trad but still informal...
Unless you have an opportunity to try on jackets you have a real challenge with your build. A rule of thumb is to go by the chest measurement of the garment. With a 44" actual chest, which I also have, you will need to get a 46 inch or more chest in a jacket. That would mean a 44 or 46 short for you. The shoulders should be 19" in or a bit more. Stay away from "slim fit" for obvious reasons. If you find a jacket that fits in chest and shoulders, you will have to deal with...
Try Sanders. I just received some extra wides which are very decent. You don't have that particular problem. Here's a model that might work: My one experience with them was a pleasure. Their customer service is excellent.
Bought two of their tattersall country shirts when I was in London in September.. Very decent quality for the price, though not in a class with H &K, or T &A...Duh! As for cut, they fit me fine.. a little full. I am very thickly built.. Twenty years and 10 lbs ago, I would have still needed a cut like this, but would have had the waist tapered.
I think I understand why. These gentlemen personify true gravitas. To mea dandy connotes a Fop. There is nothing foppish in their elegant choicesof attire.
The Shipton and Henage models referred to in my previous post in 4E are made by Sanders & Sanders. I just received a pair of 3 eyelet Derbies in 4E (H) directly from Sanders at an excellent price. They are very decent shoes. Not in the class of Ludwig and Reiter, which no longer offer the last that fits me, or C &J, which could never fit me, or other high end RTW which I would love to buy but ditto, not in my size. Sanders direct customer service is excellent and their...
What is amazing to me is the range of sizes offered by a mid-level to high-end manufacturer. As one who wears 3E (G) or 4E(H) widths, I can hardly remember when a retailer stocked or could order uncommon sizes in a wide variety of models.
It should be fine. However, IMHO, Suit Supply, by no means represent the pinnacle of quality. As for "drape", I never detected any at Suit supply.
Vass is a worthwhile reason to visit Budapest. Unfortunately, when I was there Vass was unable to fit me. I have very wide feet. For me a major reason to visit the city is a stay at the Gresham Palace Hotel. If you have any appreciation of Art Nouveau architecture and decor, luxury accommodations, and value exceptional service, I recommend that you stay there. You will not regret it.
