Your work?
All the purple hate puzzles me. The swatch has reds and blues. It is vivid and charming. No, you won't 'blend in,' but nowadays no one with well-made, well-fitted clothing really does. I enjoy rich colors and have found that if I take pleasure in them, others do too. I have a pink shetland tweed coat (RTW, amazingly, USA made from the 80s) and a peacoat style Casentino cloth coat in that roadwork-ready shade of orange. In purple, I just had a suit made up in a Zegna...

What's wrong with linings? If our insides matched our outsides, the world would be a much less comfortable place. I have one vintage bespoke New York-tailored wool robe. It is lined. One fabulous silk robe made for the Alan Flusser Custom Shop I sold last year had a lining and an interlining. The only issue with a quilted lining could be a slight stiffness throughout the body and sleeves of the garment.

No, but French RTW certainly had one, from the late 60s through the end of the 70s with Pierre Cardin, Pierre Balmain, YSL, Dior, Givenchy, etc. If you look at this Barneys shirt ad from the mid 70s, about a quarter of the names on the labels are French. Most French designers diffusing their names had no background in custom tailoring, but at least one did: Gilbert Feruch. Cardin defined the silhouette of the 70s, which was, yes, precisely fitted and so part of the same...

The Duke of Windsor had his coats made in London and his trousers in New York. The reason may have been the London tailors' reluctance to use zippers. Here is one of his transatlantic suits. But yes, if there is any patterned cloth, make sure every piece is facing in the same direction.
