Every now and again ... one needs a subtle windowpane. Besides, I can't take Huntsman house checks to A&S.

Thanks guys! I dig mostly subtle tweeds. My clients/friends work in pretty conservative environments so if I have something too loud it just stands out and even makes me feel awkward. One has to be comfortable in all aspects of their clothing to wear it well.

I'm also fine with quarters like this for this piece. Nice to have some differences outside of what I already own and wear.

I haven't paid much attention to this thread. One thing to note is that the picking on my A&S isn't all that visible. I take it that's not necessarily so with some of the expats.

Very nice Slewfoot! I especially love the chest drape and how much personality is in the jacket.

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!

Lovely colour and great cut.

Thanks guys! Regarding the pick stitching, the last photo makes it appear much more prominent than it normally is in real life. It's there, but subtle. Just the way I like it.

I'd wear that coat with pride. Yes, I know it's a 'sin' ... but how could I help but love it.

I have used a surveyor by that name. Not quite as bad as my middle school coach, Don Duck.
