I saw the W Bill donegal fabrics on Facebook (of all places ) recently and was considering a jacket. Now that I see this I will set up an appt with them in SF next month.

search "W Bill" on FB and it will come up as a community. They have 12 pics of W Bill tweeds and then other books including linens. Actually it is a nice and easy way to get a few ideas before an appointment.

Thanks PSG.

Some stuff recently arrived from Chan. Robopose for maximum crique. I took pics from all angles, since I'll probably post these and others in the upcoming thread by Despos and a tailor:

Buttoned above and unbuttoned below:

W. Bill donegal herringbone for the coat. HS Crispaire for the pants.
Tie by Panta, shirt by Danny's of HK, boots are Alfred Sargent Millers

Nice at first glance. Congratulation!

The fit looks very good. Are the shoulders slightly roped? Can you give us close up of the shoulders? Thanks

Looks great - now try swapping out the tie for a dark olive green knit! biggrin.gif

emptym,

Thanks for sharing these pics, especially since you shot everything from multiple angles. Good pictures of bespoke commissions interest me more than anything else on the forum.

Coat looks very nice in front and back pics. In the side pics it looks like front balance may be a bit short. Nice fabric and overall look on the coat. The pants look like they fit really well, though I think I might prefer a hair more tapering, but that's a stylistic choice rather than an observation about fit.

Also, I like the tie, but would probably pick something different with this outfit. Certainly not bad, but i think you could do better (I read in WAYWN that the combo was more happenstance than choice anyways, so not sure why I'm even saying this).

EDIT: I think I'd also prefer to see some daylight between the sides and the sleeves (i.e., a bit more shaping--though not tightness--in transition from chest to waist would give the coat better lines. Your physique should easily accommodate that.) It also may have to do with the way you've positioned your arms in the robopose, or with the fullness of the sleeves (something I generally like).

Could we get a close up of the donegal?

Emptym: That jacket looks excellent. Do want.

Nice jacket, emptym. I would personally ask Chan to make the shoulders a bit extended. When the jacket is buttoned, vents don't fall straight so I assume that is a balance issue (maybe other issue) as someone mentioned above.

Your collar button has a thread that needs trimming off foo.gif

Seriously, though, I love this fabric and think this is a perfect late-July jacket for San Francisco.
