About going without your favourite jacket for 2 months while they make the new one - I think you can ask to have your original jacket returned while they make the new one. Might be out of your fave jacket a month or so I guess?
I own the fabric that you linked to, and I've washed it many times and it's perfectly fine. But are you sure the fabric you linked to is the same one as the one in your photo? It looks a little different from mine. They have so many fabrics called pale blue dress stripes.
You're recommending he change all the measurements of his entire pants to fit his jacket, on what is admittedly a too boxy jacket?I had some trouble figuring out if it's a sportcoat or an outerwear piece.And finally, you live in 161 square feet? Are you only renting a room somewhere? I can't imagine you are able to live in that.
Thanks for the replies. I saw it for 230 and an extra 50% off and was tempted. It really isn't anything special, and I wasn't looking for something like that as I already have that space in my wardrobe filled.
The assumption that it's a bit better quality because it's Wallace and Barnes sort of was influencing me, but I think I'll pass on it. I haven't purchased anything for the year, and this doesn't look like what should break that streak.
