I am from the clean chest (no drape) school but to satisfy my curiosity as well as a challenge from Sator, I have drafted and am making myself a drape jacket. If you are so inclined you can read about it on my blog, though I will no doubt be posting results of my experiment here.
Your test coat is looking FANTASTIC. If you can get it to fit you like a bit closer to the way it fits the dummy, it is a remarkable first attempt.
Also, just a little possible fact correction in your blog: I don't think Scholte was ever at A&S, it is just that the founders were trained by him and were influenced by his theories.
