Excellent. You can even see the pick stitching. Thanks, Andrew. This is exactly the type of thing I wish we had more of on the forum.

Much easier to see the rakish angles on the patch pockets. Very unusual.

Frank copied those off a Neapolitan odd jacket of mine.

Yeah, I love that breast pocket! And those are some honkin' cuffs on those trousers.

It looks like the edges are pickstitched all the way around. is that true?

Also didn't see the rounded lapels (not my favorite, but great for this suit), the extremely long vents, and how nice those slim trousers are. Excellent. Also how the vest pockets pick up the swoop shape of the jacket pockets. Really great detail.

Thanks guys. Yup, the edges are pick stitched all the way around. I'll try to post some close ups of the work, it's incredible, especially the collar.

You mean the bottom edges? Yes. Frank's coats "cup" or curve in at the bottom rather than flare out. He says the only way to do that is draw the coat in with a hand stitch that runs all the way around. That stitch is actually inside the coat, but he finishes it with a hand pick to maintain the crispness of the edge.
