I definitely prefer the soft tailored effect with minimal structure. I had a jacket made by NSM which I like very much in the Summer although I rarely wear jackets in hot weather anyway. I usually just stick with linen trousers and a seersucker or linen shirt.This recent barleycorn jacket is made with very minimal padding and a light canvas. Hardly anything there. Less so than even my Steeds. I would say Steed has a touch of structure, but just enough to make it drape...
Thanks! I do have a lot of tweed sportcoats as you've probably seen. I'm sure I could use some cashmere, hopsack etc. but these days that's just not what I'm into.

30 - 40 Summer season jackets??? And I thought I had a problem! :^)
Mystery Bespoke Tailor. I didn't make up the expression, but it seems to have become the norm.
Used him a handful of times throughout the past 4 years. Think this is the 5th item I've had made from him. All turned out nice enough if lacking the panache that Steed has in their garments.
Same goes for me for my first handful of commissions. I enjoyed them at the time, but gradually the styling began to feel too modern. I also prefer more comfort and drape these days while back then I just wanted a crisp and clean silhouette. Live and learn.
