Haha, do not tempt me, man! No more jackets for me, save for that very elusive Dr. Watson jacket from the Sherlock pilot.

I do indeed. This was actually my first post on Style Forum teacha.gif

The coat only appeared in the pilot. Afterwards, they had to change costume designers; Martin Freeman now wears a Haversack shooting-style jacket in every episode (and sometimes, a waxed Barbour, as well).

Side note: the costume designers on that show do such an amazing job of using wardrobe to accentuate the characters.

Exceedingly cool.  Any other sponsor patches?  Oil/ Gas related?  Probably get decent $ on ebay!  I've seen vintage VW jackets in that style go for good $.

That is pretty cool. I haven't seen the show at all....not even an ad for it. Didn't actually know it existed.

On PBS Masterpiece in the US.  Series 2 of Sherlock airs stateside in May, I believe.  I've already seen it.  Thanks interwebs!  http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/mystery/index.html

Can do when I get home, but the jacket is definitely older than the car.

It even matches. Electron blue, baby! Definitely the fastest color...

I found this in December at a thrift chucked in with the cheap suits. Richard Anderson Savile Row bespoke jacket. I couldn't find much about it on line. Of course it doesn't fit either of the guys so I put it on ebay. I think it lasted 2 days before someone bought it. I took a ton of images of all the handwork. It was a really nice jacket. Since I sew being able to check all the details up close in your hands rather than a picture on the internet was a great opportunity. I hated to see it go but at least it has a good home now.

Can someone explain the purpose/functionality of that flap above the left lapel?

Also, found shoes yesterday that are too small even for Brianpore (!!).  Imperial longwings with v-cleat in 6.5D. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)




LOL I left those behind figuring they were useless in that size!
