Please go back and read through this thread and read what I have actually said about this coat and about A&S. I first mentioned the problem with the fronts before I even posted the coat. Then I posted the coat knowing full well that h8ers like you would have a field day with it. To the extent that I have defended it, I have done so against bogus and unfair criticism.
I don't know what it is about this topic that turns so many people into dishonest dicks, but the level of projection is breathtaking. You are so invested in hating A&S that that you constantly accuse me of blind partisanship for them when in everything I have written I have been extremely honest about my experience with them and what I see as wrong with this coat. I really don't care if you can see some technical flaw that I can't. The coat is on the neck, perfectly. The shoulders fit, perfectly. The sleeves follow my arms, pefectly in front but imperfectly in back. You either like the waist or you don't. The front balance is dropped--true. The back is perfect.
Sorry, but I can can't stand the squared-off boxy shit that you and your buddies drool over. If those are "correct" I'll take my incorrect coat any day. BTW, the drape is highlighted below. It's easier to see IRL, but not absent in the photo:
This other pic shows it a bit more clearly:
I await the Rube Goldberg explanation of why that also is not drape, or not drape done "correctly."
It is mind boggling to be arguing with a drape h8er about the supposed lack of drape in a coat. Shouldn't that be a feature for you, not a bug? Ditto the pinched waist? Sator was always going on about how drape = "too big" whereas true tailors make body-hugging coats. But somehow this one is all wrong because it's too fitted?
