Without going too far off-topic, let me correct this correction.The last good Huntsman RTW was sometimes made for them in England by the old Chester Barrie, and sometimes made for them in Italy by someone else.Current Chester Barrie, as RJMan notes, has little in common with the old except some intellectual property.Some of the old Chester Barrie staff & skill survives under the deliberately CB-sounding name of Cheshire Bespoke, still made in Crewe, England.Back on topic:...
The DB jacket detail shots include a client label with his name on it, so it's bespoke. Suspect it's the same DB coat, it' s just hard to see the herringbone at that resolution.
Domenico Vacca, RLPL velvet, NWT Oxxford, Alan Flusser Custon on ebay (300 items!) Dear Folks: This week, a giant selection of items from the Alan Flusser Custom shop, with more to come. Listed now: about two dozen dress shirts in superlatively silky smooth broadcloths and rich twills. These shirts retailed for $450 and up. My prices start at $35.

A well tailored coat can improve on nature; well-cut pant can...
The coat colors appear to be blue, gray, black and brown. White shirt and gray trousers always works, as suggested above. But the shirt could also be in a pastel like pink or peach.
Suit coat sizes correspond to the chest size of the wearer, not the measured size of the coat itself. So if you have a 38" chest, a size 38 suit coat should fit you. The chest of the coat will measure 40-42 inches, usually. Outerwear such as a trench coat, even when it is sized like suits (38, 40, 42, etc) is sized to fit over the suit coat that is over your chest. It could measure 44-46 inches.
