Great copper color, much more mellow than the regular rose with a long finish. Better when it warms up and looses its effervescence.
No fittings are quite suboptimal. I've tried it with Chan and went back to doing fittings. Different cloths perform differently, some may stretch more and others may shrink more. For example, some tailors like to add extra length for linen trousers to compensate for the shortening secondary to the wrinkles. To do that sight unseen is kinda tricky.
He's printed pictures of my friends but I've never made it. Closest I came was when I was escorting a friend down the stairs. Her picture was printed but I was cropped out (only my elbow was included).

I believe marcoalondra is calling into question the stated rules (eg by Sator) as "universally acknowledged truth" whereas in fact there is much regional variation.
I believe what you are demonstrating is the regional bias between the English and other Europeans. The English, and perhaps their prior colonies, prefer the morning coat for day weddings. I hear day coats in the UK are still quite common.
You guys should read the whole thread for old SF glory. The best comments include Despos' technical analysis of the A&S coat.
