Haha!

Thank GD for parents to support my habits!

Frank is truly a pleasure to deal with and no doubt in my little sartorial brain that he is the best value in the suiting world.

Yes. I think one of my first days on SF. Thank GD. My only issue to date is that whenever I need a suit I have to fly in for the day:-)

I like this outfit a lot. Would like to see an ascot here for that Templeton Peck look.

Frank had some pretty bad burns from an accident a few weeks ago. He's ok, and even was able to finish a suit for me...glad he's doing better...here are some new shots of the linen coat:



and the arm:


Frank scolded me for posting pics that weren't up to his standards...lol

Agree, this is an unpadded shoulder done well.

How do you know that it is unpadded?

I think that patch pockets are too highly placed from the hem and look awkward. It may be better either to shorten a coat or to move (recut?) new pockets.

I agree but I think they are too small not so much placed too high.

If it is small, then just a little bit. I would also like them being a bit differently shaped - smaller at the top and looking more like 'U'.
For me the placing kills it more than size and shape.
