It's my jacketing. Probably one of the last lengths, and they come by while everyone is away.

I can oblige after work today.

The Ballantyne was a Malford of London purchase and here are two images from his original listing.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 90
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 90

The SC was a purchase made from a local tailor who does MTM and bespoke work but also sells some pretty nice OTR SC's. I'll make sure to snap a couple images tonight and upload them. My crappy iPhone camera won't do it justice, but I'll try my best.

The Lodger's and G&G's are Spoo listings from his LuxeSwap thread so those can be seen there. I got the tobacco colored Lodger's and am really enjoying them already. They're darker in real life than in his image but that's not a bad thing to me at all. I already had more of a true beige desert boot.

Do you mind sharing the tailor with me?  I am always looking for good options in the Boston area.  PM me if you prefer.  Thanks

Oh I don't mind listing him here: Raymond Personal Tailor on Federal Street. He's right near the big Bank of America when you get out at South Station.

Traditional English house style and I believe he was trained on Saville Row. He's shown me several pieces he's done including an overcoat he made himself - it was so absurdly nice.

I go to Raymond and Drinkwater's in Porter Square for all my stuff currently. I also want to visit Rizzo's shop in Harvard Square at some point.

It's so nice. I think it came to like $650 on Malford's site when he sold them - well worth it. The drape is great and it feels very soft.

I had seen a few posts from people talking about who makes these coats for Ballantyne and most seemed to think it's Caruso.

Much appreciated.  I have walked by Raymonds many times, but never bothered to go inside.  Something about the place always turned me off or gave me an unfavorable impression.  I'll have to give him a try sometime.  

 

FYI...I see you are 40R.  I just picked up a nice Belvest suit at Louis for 75% off.  There were a couple other suits and sport coats in 40/50 at 75% off you may want to check out.

Nice! And not nice for my wallet, ha. But that's an amazing deal. Thanks very much for sharing. Definitely going to check that out.

Also, as an FYI Raymond has tons of fabric books to browse through for shirting and I think the MTM shirts begin around $150 and obviously go a lot higher. He also does MTM pants but it's a steep price tag - like $350 entry level or something.

Caruso makes a lot of their stuff, so I'd be willing to bet it's the same story with overcoats. That thing is great, love the color. Is it wool or wool/cashmere?
