Hi all, I know it's late in the season, but I'm looking for an unlined or half-lined charcoal linen jacket, preferably with double vents and available in 39R or a slim 40, and under $500. I think having one made will push me over my budget, but I just can't seem to find what i'm looking for. Any sources and/or ideas? Thanks! David

Thanks for your help...
The Sales Associates are very good, so is the manager, but the tailors in the back are absolute hacks -- they almost ruined one of my Fitz suits and I had to take it to Do's to have the trousers re-cut. These are the type of "tailors" that claim that puckering can be steamed out.

In a 44L, get a BB Fitz if you want the same kind of look as TAT i.e. narrow lapels, high arm holes. If you want double vents and ticket pockets, go MTM, RLBL or Paul Smith DF
First things first: The things that cover your legs are not slacks, they are trousers. They are only called slacks if they are made by Haagar or out of polyester. That said, is there a Benetton or Sisley near you? Otherwise, try Bluefly or other online retailers. DF

Hacking pockets are for the country, and in particular, engaging in equestrian activities. Straight ticket pockets are well-suited for the city. After all it is...
My WP Huxleys just arrived. The tortoiseshell is darker than it appears on the website, but in a good way. They're a keeper -- Already got two compliments.
