You may want to buy your tailor these pattern (only 1.50 Euro) http://www.arteinscena.it/dispense-di-cucito/consigli-per-la-realizzazione-di-una-giacca-a-falde Good details of the front 1 button.
And see this as further reference (although the front is either an old style-3 buttons and/or evening tailcoat or even Frock, they are all bodycoats and the back is built the same):
The back from the morning dress guide:
As requested - but do be sure to make sure your tailor has a morning coat pattern from the UK - or buy a vintage one from which he can make a pattern. The material can be worn out, as long as all the pieces are still in their original shapes. They can have holes, or be stained, or threadbare. For example, for under $100: http://www.savvyrow.co.uk/products/clearance-sale-1920s-1930s-vintage-black-doeskin-wool-morning-coat-38-39s
As for a proper pattern, rather then spending $100, I would buy your tailor the 1.50 euro paper pattern I posted a link of in my previous post (http://www.arteinscena.it/dispense-di-cucito/consigli-per-la-realizzazione-di-una-giacca-a-falde). The pictures on the same post were meant to highlight just the back panels construction, but those patterns do not have the key front dart (as in the first link/pattern for sale).

For my wedding I plan to wear a 3 piece black tuxedo with vest, winged black buttoned collared shirt and a self tied black bow tie. Similar to below
Now the groommen will be wearing 2 piece black notch lapel suit with white shirt and self tied black bow tie. I've been advised against this as it'll be difficult to distinguish us apart - what are your thoughts? Can you guys suggest an alternative?
