John Lobb's discontinued models.
I am fudging a bit as I bought the Sutton a couple of years ago. My first full bore retail JL purchase. The Vale and the Foxton's have been discontinued and that made it easier to buy them this month.

There is an Ebay seller that tends to get Kiton in precisely my size and I won't buy from him because he (or his photog) always buttons the top button on a 3 roll to 2 Kiton coat.
I simply figure anyone...
using the img code from your photo site results in this:
Great garments. You simply need to form a relationship with a good tailor. Very few of us can find a perfect OTR fit. If the shoulders work and they appear to than the tailor can make them right.
I can't tell you what my commercial launderer uses in terms of water temp but one characteristic of all my My Tailor orders is that they seem huge when received but fit exactly as I want after 3 commercial washings and seem to hold that size for some time.
My only Bontoni's are sourced from Wilkes Bashford and they seemed to be sized in very typical US sizing. I am a US 9D and that is what was on the Bontoni box.
For reference I wear an 8.5 E UK size in C&J, EG and JL. I suppose I find them a bit on the generous size a la JL rather than the tighter fit of the 337 and 348 C&J.
I saw my first pair of RLPLs from Italy at RL store at the Palazzo in LV last week.
$1100 was the retail price. Seemed nice enough but won't turn my head from EG or JL.
Of course if Grapevinehill starts selling them for $179 I may try a pair.
