I happen to have pics of the front and back because my dad really likes the design and wants a near copy made of it. Except he wants it done as a 2 piece suit in millionaire cashmere jacketing. As an aside, for those with experience with non-suiting cashmere for trousers, how bad an idea is this? I've explained about the baggy knees and that they'll hardly survive a couple years' wear, but I couldn't get through. The fragility is obvious. More important to him I think is: will this look bad? It's a greenish herringbone with light blue windowpane. Will cashmere jacketing drape poorly? I'd appreciate any advice, as I obviously don't want him throwing money at something which will look awful. Anyway, here are the pics. It's really comfortable because the cloth is so soft and the coat is cut so close but has that centre pleat and drape in the back to allow for superbly free movement. In response to thinman and chorse, this faux-donegal feels like a sweater and tailors wonderfully; however, it is not durable. Many have complimented me on the cloth and design of the coat, but I can't take all the credit for the latter. A Christopher Bailey/Burberry coat inspired me, though I like to think I improved on it.
The following is a three piece suit I received recently. I'm really pleased with it even though I've yet to break it in.
The camera clicked when I was preparing a pose to show the armholes; this turned out better than the staged shot.
Here with the vest. I think I'm going to wear this when I meet Tony Gaziano this Friday in NYC, so if any of you happen to spot a flannel B&W glen check, 1 button peak lapel being worn around the Waldorf (or really all of NYC), take a risk and say hi. He probably will be me. Edit: Thanks everyone for your kind words. iammatt, I think you have excellent taste, from clothing to wine to art, so your praise means a lot. Thanks again.
