1. Yes, there is drape in the chest.

2. No, this is not a Drape Cut.

The former refers to a stylistic aspect where there is more cloth of varying degrees at the armscye, chest and back. There are several current bespoke makers who do this. Examples include Anderson & Sheppard and Rubinacci. You are looking at a bespoke Rubinacci suit above.

The latter is a specific style of tailoring, encompassing the entire look of jacket and trousers, that makes use of item one but also has other important and distinctive features. Frederick Scholte is the person most closely associated in history with this style. While it is not produced by anyone today except as costume, it influences tailoring that both incorporates drape and also tailoring that does not.

How's that?

I only drink pre-ban absinthe. One time I was at a dinner with some people, you would immediately recognize them, and a fellow broke out a 1631 bottle of Clochard brand. It was fantastic, and I didn't even have to pay.

You don't like the French stuff? Belle Amie or La Coquette?

Lousy year. Clearly, you have no palate at all.

Yikes. The best one I have ever tried was from Lyon, Absinthe Suisse I think. Mid 1890s.
