I don't like the fabric. Is it a brown/tan double stripe?

Leaving the house:


Early evening. Not sure what is causing the wierd buckling in the right shoulder:





Here it is without:



Note that it looks significantly different in every pic. Every pic shows some "flaw" or other, yet I can say that having worn it now many times, and taken it on a long trip, the fit and balance are spot on (with the exception of the sleeve length).

A cautionary tale about trying to glean too many conclusions from Internet pics.

Whoa!! I know you are a tall guy, but I just noticed how big those patch pockets pockets are. Them's crazy. Same with the breast pocket and collar points, though the breast pocket doesn't look quite so stretched and the collar points manage to look long and in proportion at the same time. But those hip pockets - wow.

It's a light blue linen, with a five-bar multi-stripe: cream, brown, and dark blue. Very nice.

It sounds better than it looks in the pictures - the colors are all washed out in the photos. A pity, but if you can't wear it on the internet, you might still get some use out of it in the real world.

Yachtie loves it, too. And it does feel like cashmere...do you two think it wears better?

I has a very attractive, contemporary finish. I have been contemplating a jacket like this but i dont need a lot more odd jackets (Though I probably dont need to get any tailored items at all). Do you use a lot of Harrisons cloths?

Yes, they have a very extensive range.

Lear, Browne & Dunsford are the main company and incorporate, Harrisons, Porter & Harding and Pedersen & Becker.

I believe he posed for the fittings personally.

This is one of two basic SB silhouettes that reflects seven years of working with Edwin. So, you might say that I had a lot of input. The jacket has both a front and underarm dart, but no sidebodies (so, still well within the general A&S-style cut), the other has only the underarm dart. There will be examples of both in stuff I have in the works, which I will post when they arrive.

I have a SB nailhead that I should photograph and post here as well...it shows the most current iteration of the more closely fitted of the two silhouettes that he and I are using for me.
