I would ask Santa for one for Christmas, but I'm usually on the naughty list.

Maybe he'll bring you a very large lump of coal that you can position strategically.

Nice relaxed suit, Vox.

It's at least a tad short, maybe two tads.
Otherwise, great suit.

Did you decide on using NSM? She makes trips to SF, no?

You know, Clark, this isn't the best way to continue concealing your secret identity.

Perhaps on your next commission you could be the first to ask for the dart to not only run all the way down to the hem but that it extend all the way up to the shoulder. The full frontal dart. If it catches on here they may name it after someone you know. The Voxdartoria Model #1

You could also add a removable belt to the full-frontal dart to create a Norfolk jacket effect, which would be handy when in Norfolk. The people there look upon outsiders with suspicion, I hear.

Doc, you always can take things to the next level. You are a Steve Jobs kinda visionary. I respect that about you!

Thank you, but in this case I must admit my thinking was influenced by previous incidents in Shetland, Nantucket and, rather unexpectedly, a small Alabama town called Angora. They do not take kindly to outsiders, and they were not fooled by my Shaggy Dog.

This could be the next new thing to follow the blazer suit with swappable buttons. Full frontal dart by day for business and norfolk for weekends in the country, all in one jacket. Made with one trouser and one pair of plus 4's.

Perhaps the plus 4s can be plus 2s that transform into plus 4s and shorts as needed. The latter being for wear with one's pith helmet, of course.

But there's still untapped potential here. I'm thinking with a little ingenuity, some extra inlays and a few removable buttons to pin along the full-length dart, Vox could have the first SB that transforms into a DB. We'll call it the 2-roll-DB.

Front and back darts on trouser legs are so passe. All of mine have sidebody's, or "side-legs" if you will.

Fish-cut, I mean fishnet!

Instead of what the two of you suggest, I might explore explore putting in a long, waistband to 2" cuff dart on both the front and rear of each pant leg. Naturally, these will be lapped seams, topstitched impunutura with little nubs.
I asked NOBD to micro-photograph the nubs of the test run at high magnification (as only NOBD can). Each nub, at1000x, looks like this:

I know, so you don't even need to say it: the sheer artistry!
The long front and back trouser dart will make ordinary creases look rather pedestrian.
