This is the jacket. A bit sloppy, literally threw it on this morning to post.
This is a new tailor I have been working with. I am happy to announce names when I settle on this jacket and decide that it is worthy.
I have worn this jacket <5 times, so the interlining/canvas is a bit stiff. It causes the jacket to remain a bit boxy, which in my experience will soften up. The following things will be fixed after wearing it in a bit -
- The button stance: the button is sewn in slightly off w.r.t. the buttonhole. This causes horizontal imbalance. Secondly, the chest canvas is stiff and (I think) contributes to the button stance being a bit higher than its final state.
- I also instructed the next jacket to be of a lower button stance over all.
- The shoulders need cleaning up by reshaping the back of the armhole. You can see that there is a bit of divoting on my right shoulder.
