My suit jackets and sport jackets are cut the same length.
I use 2m for a jacket and 3m for a suit. Hope that helps.
Blazers are usually made from worsted serge, worsted hopsack or flannel. Some suggest that a serge weave is the most traditional cloth choice of the three mentioned. There is another Fox serge around 17oz with a very prominent twill that Gennaro Paone made up for me as a db blazer. It's an awesome cloth that comprises of worsted and woollen yarns. Have a look at it.
I've worked with Gennaro on commissions of my own and seen him work with others. The shoulder width on my jackets are extended, chest is draped and there is no shoulder padding. The chest drape may not be apparent on the first couple of outings, but it's there. I've asked for these features along with jacket length, lapel width at the get-go as I thought it's better to have more allowance to dial down as necessary. On the other hand, I've seen clients ask for little to no...
I don't know as I have not had any made from the latest bunch.
It's still available except it's now made in South America, not England.
Bump! Counting down.....
Not a HK tailor, but a visiting one...... Gennaro Paone will be back in Hong Kong for a trunk show from February 5-7, 2015. For more information, please feel free to contact me.

Another endorsement for Steadfast. Harrisons said they won't replenish Steadfast when stock run out. Pity.BTW I still have a jacket's length of Steadfast navy hopsack. Please PM if interested.
