Seems like spammers found them attractive too. On this page alone and so far, eleven spam posts have been deleted.

Strangely, they were all for a Chicago tailor.

Well at least the spam is appropriately tailored to the audience.

If I ever run into Paul Chang, Montopoli, or The Golden Needle, I'll pass it on that they are spamming and you are deleting them. Happy to help you out.

^There's more than one active tailor in Chicago? The end is not as nigh as I might have imagined.

Here's a longish video showing Tom Mahon drafting a pattern by rock of eye. I'm not sure why the breast pocket is on a right forepart, but perhaps it's just to demonstrate how that's drafted. I also thought the comment about how he angles the gorge to get a more relaxed chest was interesting, because I've found that other makers tend to make coats that feel like they're falling backwards, relative to my Mahon pieces.

Thank you.

Cross-post from the cloth thread, but figured this belongs here as well. London Lounge Shetland made by Edwin and Matthew DeBoise of Steed. This was my first commission by them and I think they nailed it especially by having a one-piece-back and no front darts. The slight buckling below the blades is just about invisible when the coat is being worn and in motion. Look forward to wearing it in earnest this Fall!

Very very nice. You've had a series of really successful commissions recently; I'm envious! biggrin.gif Although it seems that the predominant SF groupthink is towards open fronts/"quarters", I think your coat is a good example of how more closed fronts/"quarters" can still look very elegant.

Beautiful choice of cloth as well. I like that!

Very nice indeed.

RSS, I thought you are plaid-mad, and not favoring the subdued plaids, but the other type.
