Haha, I actually tried googling Thurston Howell too to get example pics, but I couldn't find any, and just assumed that nobody would notice.

Maybe I'll give it a shot. I'm a slim guy, too, so a DB would be flattering.

Is NSM making it for you? If so, the barchetta ain't bad.

Everyone should have a RLBL leather blazer

If that were to be made in alligator or crocodile leather with peak lapels, then hell yeah.

I've seen snap on buttons but I'm talking about a large face button with a smaller button behind it by 1/4" or so. both sides of the jacket would have button holes, but the side to be concealed would have the smaller button holes.

Double Breasted Blue Blazer

I guess I could have really confused you and posted DBBBBB. Which, of course, is a Double Breasted Blue Blazer from Brooks Brothers

Lovely, although the stitching on the chest pocket seems a little excessive.

Pardon my ig; do they baste the pockets shut? godof, having seen it both ways now, I think I would prefer a welted chest pocket. Is that the term? Lovely blue color, if the image is ~true. P

If it's heavy weight, I kinda like those patch pockets with the pleat through the center.
