Doubt it, probably cant see it as it is not buttoned. Most people dont button the lower button of the 6 x 2 DB

Thanks Andre, great photos. The DB pockets appear to be lined up while the SB seems to have the ticket pocket placed a bit forward. Overall, great choices in styling and cloth. And I definitely have a thing for these english double edge buttons.

Thanks SG. I would guess (I haven't asked) that the relative placement of the pockets has to do more with whether they're hacking (slanted) or straight.

Some slightly spastic walking away and towards the camera shots. Obviously, I have a hard time walking in a straight line. I included the back shot because it shows how much drape is in the jacket, and how much shape there is. In both pictures, I'm in motion. --Andre

As a result, suits I should have had ready for the Summer may not arrive in the fall, and they will not see payment until several months after they had expected it. What would be a one-month delay with a local tailor turns into a four month+ delay with a traveling tailor.

Do you have pictures now?

Haha, not really --- you are seeing the magic of drape. 6', 197 lbs.

I like it a lot from the front but from the back, it looks like you have ILS.

Yeah, it's really great.

There were more adjustments that we agreed on than usual...this is the first number done entirely by the new tailor.

There is a blue version which is really just as good, though I love the brown a smidge more.
