Yup. I wonder how the Benjamin Bixby line is doing(?) I've seen the stuff on Gilt for cheap (very cheap), which I can't think is a good sign...

How do you know that the jacket has only 4 buttons. From this pic, it looks like 6 x 3 to me

I suppose I could be wrong, but from what I remember of that episode it was 4 buttons.

I tend to like DB's buttoned at the bottom row, i think the longer lapel elongates the body a bit more. Is there a reason why these aren't more prevalent? custom maybe, or something about buttoning on the second row im not picking up? pics of examples i like from WAYWRN that may provide an easy comparison

Buttoning just on the bottom row was all the sprezz rage 80 years ago when the Duke of Kent first popularized the look. The prevailing sentiment against 6x1 DBs today is mainly 80s/90s hangover. I would definitely recommend staying away from dated low-slung DBs with "keystone" buttoning that ONLY button 6x1, but as a styling choice with a conventional 6x2, it's an ok look if you want to add some height.

What fabric is Adre's white DB? It lacks the characteristics of linen.

Really? If so, AF is taller, thinner and more bilaterally symmetrical than what the posts in the CE subforvm would indicate.
