Nothing custom, since I don't have his exact measurements and want it in time for Christmas.
Basically thinking something from one of the affiliates must be better made and better quality than a Burberry London piece.
To hell with what others think. Your liking it is the most important thing.

I have one that is in pretty tough shape, with a couple of thread pulls and some serious wrinkles that I found in a jacket pocket which was probably forgotten there after a night of drinking.
I am on the fence about sending it out as it is not particularly good (Jhane Barnes) but I like the color and texture.
Thinking about trying to save it myself, and if it doesn't come out ok, just manning up and pitching it.
