Yes, just look at the pocket. The angle is reversed from a normal angle for the pocket. The froward angle of the pocket edge facing the lapel should be towards the sleeve and the angle of the seam where the pocket is sewn should be higher on the sleeve side and lower as it moves across the chest toward the lapel/front edge of the jacket. The original thread marks are  correct. The pocket is really weird, never seen this happen
since you asked it here I'll answer it here.  Cloth is cut in two layers, a top and bottom, right and left side. The chalk outline of the pattern is done on the top layer and markings for pocket placement are thread marked (that's what all those white threads are)  to transfer the chalk outline to the second underlying cloth.

They make and distribute their own cloth under the Drapers name made in the VBC mill.   When you see Vitale Barberis Canonico on the selvedge of Draper's cloth it is disclosing the mill name and not the VBC brand name.   VBC is the oldest mill in that area but also using the most updated weaving technology. Zegna and Loro Piana are...
I don't know.  Received the email this morning and posted the link since it was being discussed here.    Started buying beans from Populace from a reference you made AY. Think you had their products at a shop you went to.    Have never had cold brew, will try sometime   Just ordered beans from Highwire in Emmeryville CA. Heard good things about them

My experience is better steam with an HX than a prosumer/home DB.  Has to do with how power cycles between the two boilers on a DB
