I think I was channeling my inner pejsek today. A Kilgour, French & Stanbury DB jacket, 4/2. This is the bespoke stuff, not the US licensee. Swaggering lapels, as it's from 1976. Fits very well, even in the sleeves. There was also a strange Brioni coat from the 70s. Nice rust colored open weave wool plaid, but mega lapels, and besom pockets on each hip and on each breast. Plus moth holes; I left it.
Elsewhere, two Lesley & Roberts tweed overcoats. This is a firm now incorporated into Welsh & Jeffries. L&R was the maker of suits that Sebastian Flyte filched from his friends in Brideshead Revisited, and seems to have been one of the most famous London tailors in the interwar years. These coats were from the mid 70s, both in thornproof tweeds with colorful windowpane plaids. How nice to have an overcoat with a lapel loop for the stem of one's boutonniere. Pictures to come.
