The balance of that jacket is stunning, button point is spot on, skirt balances the shoulders beautifully, the lapels are just right, same as the quarters. The look of the jacket is dynamic, if you know what I mean. Looking forward to the completed jacket.

'made in scotland for drapers'
and if there was moar fabric

Is there such of a thing as a "neapolitan" overcoat. With all lapped seams and spalla shoulders and such? If so does the front darts still drop to the hem? It seems that with their climate they would have more of a shorter driving coat, or just tweed SC.
