Fwiw, I'm not a fan. My preference is for single pleat with the button tab extended to the pleat. Side adjusters,

You can get more info, even though some might be hearsay, at AskAndy's forum. I'm SOL on one jacket with no means of recovering any funds.

There have been a couple of short threads on the forums about this. Very sad. Looks like most people are out of luck for getting their money back, which makes sense in a bankruptcy. Apparently Bookster contracts out a lot of their work though--in one of the threads, folks were calling the contractor and getting the half-finished product back.

Sad all the way around, though.

It just is. Not faddish or anything else. It isn't a bad choice if there is no belt, as it is makes the closure look finished. But a shorter tab looks good, too.

Initially I thought this extended waistband looked odd. But now that I am rarely wearing the belt, I realize it would be nice to get the waistband button out of view.

I don't like the Ambrosi style - it's meant to resemble Gurkha trousers, and tends to look a little weird on dress trousers.

 

I think this is a better option:

Yup, it's mine. Very functional, and I have started to prefer it to side straps or Daks tops.

Been searching this thread for views on the above mentioned fabric - ie Minnis Fresco 0577, which is a mix with 30% mohair. Does anybody have any experience on whether this wears warmer or as cool compared to other fresco fabrics?
post #6990 of 11430
^ I would stick with the regular all wool fresco, the 8-9oz is the most comfortable in heat
