Could someone propose a decent brand making a wool double breasted jackets in classic proportions? Without those crazy disproportionate lapels like Suitsupply or a razer thin on other hand ..

I am out of ideas where to look ..

Would wear it mainly casually, so flap pockets are really not what I am looking for .. 

Budget would be around $700

Thanksss

That's a nice one. But the listed measurements don't make any sense.

I guess that's the 'fashion' now. Like others, I prefer much wider lapels. I dislike narrow lapels, but as long as you like them, that's fine.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I am not a fond of a shiny metal buttons, also those flap pocket make the whole ''orphan from the suit'' jacket look, IMO..

More looking for this type of pockets and proportions.

All what? Casual pockets and a proportion similar to the one from the photo without the shiny buttons? There's a ebay these days for the good deals too. I was more asking for a suggestion on brands that may be producing such type of a jacket on the first place ..

Also, the jacket from the photo was on sale in London last year for a $650 though I found about it too late..

A set of horn buttons is also included:
"As we know some guys don't like the metal buttons, we add a set of decent dark horn buttons to every jacket"
and flap pockets are classic for this kind of blazer (you could always put the flap inside...)
I think that actually isn't easy to find better than this (RTW)...

(the Drake's one you posted above is Caruso too)

The market is FULL of DB with patch pockets, but almost all are awfully (super) short and most of the time with fancy fabrics
I think you already checked the usual Sartorio, Lardini, Tagliatore, etc.

You could also have a tailor convert the flap pocket to a besom pocket very easily.

There are a number of ways to make pockets. If the flap sticks out between two jets just push the flap inside. Other flap pockets may be a problem because of the way it is constructed.

Changing buttons is easy. Anybody can do it. Books, YouTube and even ask a tailor how to do it.

This one's cool, though lapels might be touch too wide.
