David, I'm imagining you reciting Alden's monologue - to bespeak or not to be, speak! - in that second photo.

Is it me or could you even add a row of buttons if you wanted to in the future?

Slewfoot, a superb suit.

While I also prefer the navy one, this is actually a choice among two good options.

Please look at adding some buttons. I like a four-button, but these look too low and huddled together. The buttoning reminds me of the (greatly inferior) Crompton suit Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It's not easy to tell, but I think the navy suit buttons a little above the waist, and the POW at the waist. I prefer a little above. Also, you don't want to show a bit more throat?

I can see why you're pleased smile.gif.

Whnay has more wallet ammunition perhaps?

 

 

After our April trip to San Francisco, we plan to return in October and then to make SF a permanent fixture on our itineraries at least twice a year, perhaps three times, dependant on demand.
 
Also to note that we will be offering both our bespoke and semi-bespoke (mtm) services.
 
Best wishes,

Thanks guys! Glad you like it. I agree that the balance is a touch better on the navy flannel DB in terms of the buttoning. The point with this POW Brisa was to get something a bit different and old school. I have a bunch of 6 x 2 DB's so not change things up a bit? Weather or not one is more correct is subjective, but I like having both. Always fun to have options!

Did you consider a patch breast pocket for the 4 x 2?

Nope. I kind of think a POW DB is busy enough.

The toe shape of the 238 is really great. But it looks like its a bit short. 

 

 

 

How is it compared to the Chiltern on the 224 last? Anyone have pictures of that boot?

Not really sure where to put this on here, but here's an old photo of my Grandparents on my father's side. Photo dates from the early 1940's and, as you can see, the drape cut runs in the family. Perhaps one reason why I gravitated towards Steed was instincts!

Wow! I hope my grandchildren will do the same. That a very nice outfit, good standard.

Where were your parents/grandparents from, Slew?

Thanks and the midwest, Michigan and Chicago.

It's pretty shocking when you think about it, that people were able to dress elegantly without Internet clothing forums.
