The trend now seems to be for overcoats to have a very slim close fit. Yet I've seen people like Cary Grant wearing them much looser and still looking good. Is there any reason a coat can't be slightly baggy? In these two pictures the coats are not tight yet I think they look better for it. Sting in a Crombie and Cary Grant too.
Has anyone tried the RTW suits from H&H? I want a general workwear suit so something reliable and not too fancy. What's the quality of their suits as I have bought other items from them and been impressed. I was told by H&H their suits are half canvassed.
I have seen a suit jacket which has arm joins that are raised and not sat flat at the shoulder part ? Is this some kind of new style or influenced by any particular past aspect?
Thanks for the reply, I see what you mean in that it bunches more on the knee, think I am more a tapered slim fit than a curved then!

It has a wonderful satin gold lining - a classic fawn fitted overcoat with a velvet collar, slanted pockets with an outer ticket pocket in pure new wool. Detailed stitching on the hem and cuffs, centre vent and inside pockets. Measurements Sleve length (measuring from top of...
Hi, what are peoples preferences regarding belts for summer trousers i.e. linen or chino trousers? I recently bought a canvas/leather mix belt and found the leather element too heavy and a bit too formal for casual wear, it also caught the heat. Anyone recommend just elastic style belts s a summer alternative?

I feel that narrow lapels and an overly skinny look would make it look like a cheap jacket made by a company trying to push the trendy boundaries of seersucker. My one question would be what trousers you'd consider wearing with this. While my initial inclination was cream or white...
