Thanks VR. They are patch pockets but unlike any I've seen before. I'll do my best to post larger and more detailed shots that really show the enormous amount of handwork.

So which shoes were the first to be paired with the suit?
I'm thinking either suede Malverns or Chapel in suede.

Loved Frank's work that I had seen for others and he's young and will be doing this for a while!
I also like Frank's bent for those things vintage, it really delivers unique goods. Also, the man makes an incredible shoulder, virtually zero padding.

So are you all bespoke now? Dangerous...Manton may regret steering you to Shattuck when you keep him too busy.
I'm afraid so. I already picked another cloth, Lesser navy flannel chalk stripe..
