I do have a fair amount of bespoke and still it happens. It's not a perfect world ... especially for those who aspire to achieve perfection.
That said, I met my father in Atlanta a few weeks back. The day of my departure we were both wearing very similar A&S coats. It was hot and neither of us had our coat on for a luncheon picnic friends had arranged. As I left for the airport I picked up what I thought was my coat. About half way to the airport I slipped into the coat and realized at once that I was showing way too much shirt sleeve ... the full double cuff look. I had only two coats with me for three weeks in Italy and France ... and ultimately I wore it several times (always with double cuffs). I showed a lot of cuff ... and the length was a bit short. After the second wearing, I stopped fretting about it.
Most people don't notice what others are wearing ... and even if they do, I'm still much better dressed than 99.9% of the rest.
