Thanks Naka. It`s an old vintage cloth without a brand name. I have a feeling by the width of the cloth that it could have been a ladies cloth, but makes a fine jacket. There was a comment in a previous post I had the picture up that for such a soft cloth a 3B patch pocket would have bee great too - a fair comment, as the patch pockets would have fitted a more casual style. A difficult and rare cloth to style, but I think Suzuki-san did a great job.
Regarding the styling, there are many around here that have a disdain for single-buttoned odd jackets, but I quite like them, especially with hacking pockets. The only thing I would change on that particular jacket would be to angle the breast pocket a little more to balance the angle of the hacking pockets.
What are the quarters of the jacket like? I would love to see a picture of it being worn.
The buttoning point is too high IMO. This serves to emphasize rather than flatter the shape of the abdomen. And DG seems to have a slightly dropped right shoulder, which hasn't been accounted for in the making leading to an impression of asymmetry.
I think, DG, you should post this in the Tailor thread and get A Tailor and Despos's views on this because they will have a better idea of what to do.
