BTW did you have Edwin dial down the drape? My RAF Agnelli coat has full on drape which I am not used to. I think I'll have live with it for a while before I can judge for sure.

My garments have different levels of drape. I tend to let the fabric and "feel" of each coat dictate the amount while discussing with Edwin and Matthew.

Gentlemen,

your thoughts and advice please.

I'm about to commission a navy flannel single-breasted, two button blazer from Edwin.

Patch pockets at the hip but I'm torn as to the breast pocket - welt or patch?

Is this purely a matter of personal taste/choice or is there some other consideration I should have in mind?

Obliged in advance etc.

The ever elusive original London Lounge Alden Gun Club. Persistence pays off with finally tracking down a jacket length. Old school, beefy stuff at around 21oz. With this and a sweater on together I don't think I'll need an overcoat this Winter!

Not sure what's going on with the rippling buttoning point as that's not really noticeable in real life although might partly be due to the recent overseas shipment. The coat is not tight by any means.

Thanks guys!

Awesome, I am sure the buttoning area will loosen slightly with wear. No need to touch it.

21ounce cloth is difficult to work with. Have written this before, elsewhere. The cloth loses suppleness and this has to be adjusted for to compensate.

If Slew would submit another picture with the jacket unbuttoned you would see what the issue is.

Hard to assess from this one picture because I'm not sure Slew is in a natural relaxed posture here.
