Does Sir Michael's PS fold have a name? You don't see it often...

The Mont Blanc.

Thanks!
Any reason you suppose why that fold seems uncommon (at least from my limited experience)?

I was just kidding! Jokingly referred it to as such because it looked like a mountain peak.

 

It doesn't appear to be anything fancy - just a square folded to a peak. I imagine its not than common because: a) plain white linen is typically folded square, and b) silk squares are 'poofed' rather than folded to a peak.

I've been thinking about getting my first DB suit. I was going to be very conservative: navy or charcoal, solid, etc. In reading about them on SF it seems like navy is more associated with the DB style than charcoal. Is that because of the military origins/influences of the DB coat? Or am I imagining things (again)?

This monstrous Tiger of Sweden jacket deserves inclusion in this thread, if only to illustrate what often becomes of DB jackets when clueless designers start fiddling with their proportions. To add insult to injury, the jacket is about 350 EUR, despite the cloth being some shitty wool/poly blend. laugh.gif

Seems a little long. I like my fashion-forward monstrosities to just touch my belt line. Why or why do they do this?

Looks nice. I would suggest you have your tailor raise the buttoning point a little, and tighten the wrap on the next coat.

Thanks. However, that was RTW that I didn't actually wear, but sold it.
