It'll be my pleasure. I'll see if I can round up some others as well.
I've had a light jacket and a heavy winter coat made, and in both cases I specified the actual measurements of the garment. My process has been to take an existing coat that fits me well and make any desired adjustments to that. In the case of the lightweight one I went ahead and pinned up the reference garment and tried it on to make sure the changes I requested were going to work.The consensus around here seems to be that for all kinds of garments you're best off...
Welted pockets have been around for a long time. They're offered as an option by lots of makers these days. There are other, much more important indicators of how dated a suit's style is (fit, lapels, padding, pleats...)

My face when receiving not one but two shipping confirmation emails this morning:
TL;DR: "I hate this guy. Please tell me more about him."
I for one think it's beautiful and I could see contexts in which it would work.As far as I'm concerned if you're after "burst out laughing", you want giant high-waisted pleated pants worn with suspenders and monkstraps. To each his own.
