    Very nice David. I will say that the coat has fairly closed quarters - we have had many a debate on A&S quarters here.

    I think it might be a default for A&S and its expats, my coats from Steed have open quarters as I have specifically requested so.

    Thanks guys!

    Most all my coats have somewhat open quarters. This perhaps not quite as much, but more so than this photo indicates. I was standing at an angle slightly behind to help straighten out one of the pockets which had a weird crease in it from my closet. That would help close the quarters more unfortunately.

    As always, a photo only tells part of the story.

    Putting the "sport" back in sportcoat. LL Houndstooth in dark brown and medium brown. Lovely fabric that is so soft and stretchy and full of character. Awesome stuff. Made up Edwin and Matthew DeBoise of Steed.

    First in to tell you to unbutton the second button.

    It's meant to be like that. If you look closely, it is a two button coat and there is no button on the natural waist where one would normally go. I quite like it as something different. Good to shake things up every now and again.

    Very interesting. You have balls wearing something like that. Me and my ego would be scared to do that because everybody would think I didn't know how to button a jacket correctly. :embar:

    David - you go for the longer, trad length SC. Any reason why?

    Just the way Steed did it. Most all their coats are a tad longer than my HK stuff. Fine with me.


    Balls are good.

    Is there any particular color or type of suit that illustrates Steed's talents best?

    ^ Tough to say. I'd just look through the thread and see what grabs your attention. If you're looking for a suit I'd go double breasted. They truly feel one step away from pajamas.

    Nice looking coat, it might be just a picture but one of the lapels seems significantly wider than the other one?

    Received a new 2 button blazer last Friday in a gorgeous navy flannel (Hardy Minnis 0305). Fits beautifully, the cloth has that lovely deep, soft hand of really good quality flannel.

    Had its maiden outing today. Absolutely delighted.

    A couple of frescos for next summer should be in the works shortly.

    Thanks! After it came out of the box the rolls were a bit off in terms of where they fall. I imagine that's partly it, but correct that one does seem wider right now.

    As Slewfoot alluded to, this is a paddock jacket, so both buttons should be buttoned. What strikes me about it is how skillfully the tailor has made all the angled lines harmonize with one another. Very nice. I'm not equally enthusiastic about the profile view -- I would prefer a more sculpted chest and more waist suppression -- but maybe that's how these kinds of jackets are supposed to look.
