For a moment, I thought it was just me. Fully agreed that they are quite prone to slippage in their delivery dates, though this might be down to me having very exacting timelines, or it might just be a mark of the trade.

Just completed my first fitting with Russell at Graham Browne last week.
The Moonbeam 36532 turned out great, and im quite happy with the choice of fabric.

Russell adjusted the chest a bit, raised the collar (since i wear quite high shirtcollars) and
took up the lenght an inch or so. Russell also noted that my right shoulder drops a bit.
This is my first basted fitting, and i was quite pleased.

Obv. one cant make out every last detail at this stage,
and the picture taken with my phonecamera could be better. But feel free to chime in with notes, questions or observations.

I look forward to seeing it when it's finished. We don't see a lot of Browne's work posted on the internet and it's always nice to see an off Row tailor's work. How do you find the cloth? I have the brown/black Twill and like it very much. Nice and soft.

Very soft indeed. Feels almost like cashmere. I was actually worried about it getting shiny at the elbows etc after a while, like cashmere tends to do, but was assured it should hold up almost like wool. Whats your take on this?
I love the Harrison Moonbeam. If this jacket turns out the way i hope it will, ill probably order another one or two from the moonbeam book right away.

good call on the higher collar. my stuff from GB has a lower collar than my Chan stuff, i think i'd prefer it higher.

and your shirt collar is pretty high

To early to say yet. I didn't get much wear out of it last year, but I don't get the impression that it is a 'delicate' cloth, like some have suggested. Soft, but not delicate. There are, as I recall a few different weaves in the book, yours looks like the barleycorn one.

Looks very nice even at this stage! Looking forward to seeing the final result.

Is it just me or could the pockets be just a little higher? Hard to make it out on this picture...

The picture is crappy for sure. I should have brought a camera.
The pockets arent actually attached yet (it will be a 3 patch). Im not sure what the horizontal lines on the hips indicate, maybe someone with more experience with Graham Browne or bespoke in general can explain.

Yep, I noticed the the overcheck later but was too lazy to edit my post. If you take a look at the Despos thread you'll see a DB made out of the blue Barleycorn.

I havent decided. Probably not, though. Im hoping i'll find the time to go pick it up, and choose a cloth for the next one. If im satisfied with the result on this one, that is.

Any suggestions clothwise? 10-13 oz prefferably. Plaid perhaps?

I've also been looking at another moonbeam. No. 36525:
