We won't be hit by shoes and bamboo rods, later thrown into the pool, where our heads kept under water while they sing Silent Night?

Your comments sound like those of a freethinker or some other benighted soul who is incapable
of appreciating the sanctity of the season. In earlier times you would have been a candidate
for an auto da fe'. So be thankful for the Second Vatican Council that it is only bamboo rods
and mock drowning.

Dear St. Comrade,

I anticipated your infallible pretense and amended previous post to revoke persecution. Santa, your satorial soul were surely sharply clothed by study of Karlheinz Deschner's historical scholarship - he cuts the cloth to correct such a caricature of Christianity.

Please excuse me from your sanctimonious catechism and say hello to your comrades in Purgatory.

PS: I'm confident some A&S expats will post about clothes soon.

Has anyone asked Steed to make a quarter lined coat?
post #2329 of 2435
I have most of my coats half lined which I believe is essentially quarter lined to them. Heck, even I'm not totally sure of the difference!

Are any of yours summer weight?
post #2331 of 2435
Nope. All tweed and flannel. I hardly wear any jackets in the Summer!

By "English cut" I assume you don't mean Mahon. Where were you thinking of for that option?

One thing I'd worry about a little is the use of padding under the shoulder-- it can be a little much for bulky tweeds and flannels.

Correct, I'm thinking about using William Field from now on and plan to get his thoughts on the fabric. His shoulders are actually soft and he doesnt use that much padding it just happens to be a structured coat. Im still on the fence with Steed. Some of the stuff (ie Vox) I like while others I'm not impressed.

I thought vest were becoming popular again. At least I have been seeing them around.

Like the belt back, though a center vent might look better (looks like that part is one piece, which is another good way to do that.
Never like it when the front waist is higher than the back waist- at least that is what it appears to be when looking at the front button. Looking at a picture can be misleading. Read that 3 fifths of the belt is above the waist line leaving 2 fifths below for placement.

Thanks! If you look carefully though you will see that my natural waist is in between the two buttons. We went with a bit of a vintage feel here for this one. The belt is in between them, a touch towards the lower button, but that's fine with me as that appears to be where it should fall on my back as it starts to curve inward.
