I have something similar, also in a double breasted. My version is from the Holland and Sherry Moresque (?) book which is much softer and modern but it is the same salt and pepper diagonal stripe idea. Quite smart

Or simply too much time in the past trying to decide what makes a tailor a "Savile Row" tailor?

I assume, however, that the seeds of this were sown during Thomas' time at Anderson & Sheppard.

Of course, your answer was undoubtedly more helpful.

Llama? Jinx.

Let's be sure that if we do wear it, we consult in advance in case we are in the same city at the same time, and a sudden wind doesn't cause us to collide and stick together like velcro.

That's precisely what makes my answer inferior in the context of this thread.

Oh come on, we can do better!

Let's see...

Cloth: probably English, but of course the wool came from Australian sheep.
Buttons: Horn; I have no idea. Do these come from buffalo, ram?
Thread: Cotton? (Egypt) Silk? Who produces silk, China?
Canvas: Horsehair?...you get the picture

(It's like that classic Milton Friedman bit with the pencil)

It's only the flash of the camera that brings this cuff out. If he had aligned the buttons and stripes perfectly, you wouldnt see the cuff at all. He wanted the cuff to be slightly noticeable.

I assume you mean the clothes? He makes expensive clothes and he makes mostly for very serious understated people. Frankly his suits are a very modified updated Brooks Brothers sack suits which seem to equate somewhat with Rome's Caraceni style. I dont know that they look old man, they look excellent and several of his customers are rather surprising celebrities who wouldnt wear something...dowdy?

Your instincts serve you well because if this version has any tradition, it is to appeal to those with ready to wear reflexes.

If so, I cannot see you wearing that bearcat for me than four minutes even fully nude underneath.

I saw an RLPL ad recently for a black DB shawl 4x1 jacket with (traditional) turnback cuffs and silk facings. It was cut pretty short, too.
