And for those of you whose eyes are not as practiced with this sort of thing, if you look closely, you can see the outline of the lapel facings for the vests, and the pinch representing the pleat that will go into each bottom pocket.
And no: no loud linings for me. If I want something like that, I'll go see Paul Winston for something truly Waspy.
Does this mean the lapels on the waistcoat will be sewn on, rather than rolled? Any reason? I like rolled with flannels, otherwise I leave it as tailor's choice. Since he is doing sewn, how will they be laid out - matching the plaid, or to look as if they were folded over?
Nice touch on the jacket pocket pleats. I hadn't noted that first time. I had a sportcoat like that with pleats in all three pockets. It was silk and wore out. I was saving it to have it copied, but my wife disappeared it.
Will there be a band (like a wide besom) at the top of the pockets? That is what mine had on all three (I urge pleats for the breast pocket as well).
I went a different route on my recent sportcoat order - bellows hip patch pockets with button closures. Yours are more suave. I wanted more rustic (and really wanted the bellows).
