I prefer double vent and wider lapel, but I fear although Oliver Brown costs more that the quality is less than Cordings?
I wonder if moleskin is more beautiful than needlecord in a jacket?
Perhaps his head was photoshopped?
The jacket length looks acceptable to me.
I too have been a long-term fan of Cordings - very long-term in fact. However, I feel they may have been going downhill in recent years. Their suits are nothing special now.
They are good quality, but as you say, very full cut. The bodies are very long, the collars are large, but the sleeves are rather short - not quite in normal body proportion.
