I wouldn't go that far. I think Butler himself has had fits that have beaten this one. 

 

I mean it's fantastic, a 95/100 but I'm not a monotone fan. Butler has had a few 100/100's before.

 

There was a hilarious discussion somewhere else about hacking ticket pockets and trying to find the reason behind it. Hacking is for horse-riding. "Maybe you were on a horse, riding along side a train, trying to get in." "But then you probably wouldn't have a ticket if you were going to hop the train."

I think hacking ticket pockets are more style over function.  I'd say that goes for standard ticket pockets as well.  They look good even if they aren't used.

Thanks. Incredibly reliable once problem with rust is under control. Car will be 33 yo this year. W123 can do 1000000 km if one look after his car.

I think the only things that could have made this better (or rather, how I would wear it) was with 2" cuffs and a black grenadine/knit. But that's personal preference.

 

Great fit. Well done!

+1! Black grenadine or knit would have been awesome. Cuffs are pure personal preference although I also would have liked to see them. Either way, very nice fit.

Concurred. Along with totally nailing your intention of keeping it simple', I've said it before and will repeat how for a big fella you have once again hit the sweet spot of wearing nicely fitted clothes without wearing a worsted wetsuit!
