Nice, though the overall look and proportions would benefit more with a more wider lapels, imo.

I'll make you one with wider lapels if you like.

I like very much your cut,David.


I' sure that you could make a wonderful version in Edward VIII-Scholte style (with a bit of roll on lapels too).

Thank you, here is the coat with the top button unbuttoned.

Perfect!

Compare to a Duke of Windsor's coat (of early 60s from a Scholte's cutter).

The roll is the same.

And with the top button unbuttoned the  wide of lapels seems better.

I wonder if you can actually sit down in that jacket without unbuttoning the bottom.

How so?

It's probably a combination of the angle of the picture and his pose, which makes the waist area of the suit looks too large, which in turn is emphasized even more by the slim pants.

For me, it's the top buttons that are a little too close to each other. Of course, fixing that might lead to other problems, and it has some very lovely features otherwise.
