I'd go with something that didn't look like the standard dark brown horn buttons on a suit to avoid the orphaned suit coat look.

Right now I have metal buttons. I wanted something a bit more versatile though. I can't find a darker MOP anywhere though.

Why do Italians WRITE E-MAILS IN ALL CAPS?

Just got a new d/b Tagliatore overcoat from Yoox. 54R. Fits great at shoulders and good sleeve length. It's a little snug across the chest, even though it buttons. There is darting on the front and the back. I've seen plenty about having a coat taken in, but a skilled tailor should be able to let it out to give me some room across the chest, no? I'm also pleading estoppel on all comments about me losing weight. Of course I'm going to work on that.

It's to compensate for the fact that you can't see their hand gestures.

It can be done if there's enough allowance on the seams. You'll generally have to get underneath the lining of the coat to see how much allowance is available.

So I went to Macy's and Sak's today to try and find a suit and both said they didn't have anything off the rack that would fit, even with tailoring and recommended MTM. I have a 43 in chest and 33 in waist. They said most suit makers don't account for 10 in drops OTR. Is this true? If so, where is a good place to get one MTM for a decent price?

sorry for using this personal image of another member but can anyone tell me the purpose of the flap on the upper right chest? is it a storm flap or something? i know most raincoats i see with this are merely for aesthetic purposes but can anyone tell me the original intention? i have a similar coat except the flap is buttoned down and it really has no use.
