Ernest looks smashing. I personally saw that jacket while in Paris and saw that it was "the real thing" (a Chester Barrie from Gieves & Hawkes). In fact, the lesser Chester Barrie buttons had been replaced with those of the recently departed Sulka. Where could he get a regimental stripe in Paris with the stripes going the British way? I understand that Lewin sells such stripes to foreigners, even if they did not serve in the regiment. I always thought a cut-away collar was too formal for a blazer. Also, if one must wear a French cuffed shirt (buttons are prefered), then the links must be silk knots or very tiny so as not to "fight" with the blazer buttons. By the way, Ernest, are those pajamas by Derek Rose on the bed behind you?
The jacket is great. We see that it comes from a good tailor. I took a tie just to see how it is. I did think about the stripes. Thanks for the jacket Jerry. My mother like it very much, she proposed me to go to job interview with it. She forgot I was not a pilot. P.S. This jacket is a nice gift from Jerry
