What a great fit.  The subtle curve for the waist suppression is excellent.  Perfect fabric too -- perhaps a charcoal flannel?  Did you work with a particular cutter at A&S?

Steed fitting in NYC yesterday in LL Brown Houndstooth.

The inspiration for this coat was this from the Duke of Windsor's closet. The pockets will be a bit more tame and there will be a belt in the back. Mine will also be a two button front with the buttons just above and below where the middle button would normally be. I have enough "standard" sportcoats that I thought why not do something a bit different. Look forward to seeing the finished product this September.

Oh that see your houndstooth! I had a fitting for a 3 piece in the RAF Agnelli flannel and a set of tails. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Nice and glad they're working out for you!

Thanks, CrimsonSox. The fabric is a 15oz. AF Blue flannel from Minnis, and I work with John Hitchcock. I have been very happy with all my stuff from Andersons.

Slewfoot: That looks very nice and I think the half belt is a good idea. I'm starting to mix it up myself, and recently ordered a tweed coat with an action back. Do you like your waist to be that pinched on a tweed coat? Looks good, but I think it could be let out a touch more.

Tails?!?! Sounds great, but where do you intend to wear them?

Thanks and the waist was originally a touch wider, but I asked for more nipping and afterwards we all agreed that looked better. 90% of the time I wear my coats unbuttoned so if it's not nipped a decent amount I think it starts to look bulkier than I'd like.

I was hoping to be cast in Downton Abbey. peepwall[1].gif

Failing that, there are some NYC balls in the winter. Even at the fitting I could tell the tails are the most flattering clothes a man can wear. It is a shame that the manner of dress is disappearing

It would be really nice if we could see it, done or not, poorsod!

Are you having crescent pockets on that coat? Would be interested to see how it comes out, I have a few fabrics I would like to get crescent pockets but I haven't seen anything from Steed with crescent pockets. The coat looks great by the way, that is going to be one warm coat.

No crescent pockets. That was a little much for me! Might do them someday on something else...I'm getting it half lined to try and negate the heat...it's also a one piece back. Yay!

^^You know half line is not going to help!! It is still going to be very warm.

Well, it is a Shetland. It's supposed to be warm. :^)

I do find having things half lined does help a bit. Anything to add a touch more air circulation is good in my book!
