Thought I would cross-post these in-the-wild pics of the Coccinella suit I had made in Osaka earlier this year.
Fabric is Draper 2421, 7 1/2oz wool/silk/linen, very light and summery. I had the jacket buggy-lined and the pants were left unlined for Sydney summers.
I'm very happy with the result. In fact I have another commission on the way - a two-piece winter suit in the fabled Minnis 0656 houndstooth flannel.
The new suit will have a slightly longer jacket with slightly lower buttoning point; slightly wider shoulders and slightly fuller chest to minimise lapel bowing; slightly more full-cut trousers. It will be fully lined and feature a high waist with fishtail back, buttons for braces, no belt loops.
I'm trusting that the Coccinella guys (Chujo and son) can nail this one down on the basis of measurements already taken. A bit of a risk given no opportunity for fittings. We'll see how it turns out.
