No, it's messed up. I should give it to someone else to fix but I haven't gotten around to it. I went back to Steed for "English" stuff and they do a fine job. Way better than A&S, at least for me.

Out of curiosity, how much do you still use Steed? Seems like most of the things you've had made up recently have been from Italian tailors.

Could also just be selective memory on my part.

Well, my last stuff from Solito arrived in 2010-2011. I have not seen him since. He was supposed to be here this month but now says next month.

I really have not gotten much in the last two years. One overcoat, one suit jacket, and one suit. Latter two were Steed.

If I ever see Solito again, I will get more. There are some things I would like from Steed but nothing urgent, I am reasonably well covered with what I have.

So basically selective memory on my part, figures.

Suit jacket--replacing something that had issues? Updates to the BlazerSuit?

It was a orgnially a 3 piece DB with brace trousers. Then I got belt trousers for it and more or less stopped wearing the vest and brace trousers. So, since the cloth run was the same and the match was still perfect, I got an SB coat to wear with the vest and brace trousers. So, two suits, or one 5 piece suit.

When it is cold out you should wear it all simultaneously.

Here is the flannel from a few posts back made up: minus the collar (having some back adjustments) , what do you guys think: 

 

 

Also have different cloth from same bunch, you think I should get same style as above? (2 patch pockets, 2 roll 3):

Real reason is just to change it up honestly, but if its "too much" of a look, then regular old trousers will do

I was always interested to ask for your take on Will's 'four items a year' replacement rate comment?  

 
Seemed on the high side to me (even discounting for the fact that I'm not in the office five days a week, and weekend wear involves tailored jackets some but not all of the time).

I guess a bemberg square could work in theory with the right pattern.

Is your lining white linen?

Not early enough buttons.

Or styling options. See if you can cram side adjusters in between some belt loops and then we're talking.

Srsly though, I'd never go frogmouth pockets w/ cuffs or with brace buttons. And probably not with flannel.

Apart from that, they're ideal...
