This is like...

On the first picture run your eye down on the vertical pattern of the plaid. The edges of the design are contrasted, dark on the viewer's right and cream on the viewer's left. The vertical line along the pocket welt is reversed, Dark,left. Cream, right. the second picture is not shot into a mirror so things change. Breast pocket on other side of picture From the second picture the horizontal line. If you follow the larger dark brown horizontal pattern, it appears to make...
