    From the title I thought you were suggesting adult diapers and TED stockings.

    Coincidentally, I am considering seeing RA the next time they are in town.

    Speaking of RA, any Timothy Everest clients out there?

    I have been very impressed with what I have seen around the web and in The Rake.

    I have to say this is a great idea for a thread.

    In my case, Muhammad might be coming to the mountain. I'm about to decide.

    ^ :lol:

    "If one cannot get one's own way, one must adjust to the inevitable. The founder of Islam was asked to give proofs of his teaching, he ordered Mount Safa to come to him. When the mountain did not comply, Mohammed raised his hands toward heaven and said, 'God is merciful. Had it obeyed my words, it would have fallen on us to our destruction. I will therefore go to the mountain and thank God that he has had mercy on a stiff-necked generation.'"

    Yup I've had a few things from them. Lapels tend to the skinny side and I have never been able to convince them to enlarge them by much - doesn't bother me hugely but runs contrary to the present trend here. One or two other niggles on occasion but nothing too bad. They are a nice bunch and pleasingly professional - stick to their promised timescales and communicate well (i have had emails replied to even on weekends and evenings, sent from their blackberries, which was inordinately pleasing after some of my experiences elsewhere...).

    I like the lovingly machine padded collar. :devil:

    I like the shape of that coat.

    Any particular reason, you had it button up so high - is it more of a functional or stylistic thing?

    Some tailors use machine collars for fittings only. I also have heard it claimed, from reliable sources, that a well made machine padded collar is as good as a hand padded one. Whether that is true or not is debatable for collars but certainly not true for lapels and chest pad.

    I have no idea which is better.

    I just know that hand padded looks better in photos on the internet and what's the point if not to look good on the internet?


    To not further derail this, I want to emphasize that I really like the shape of that coat.

    Anymore about the only thing I request is the lapel shape.

    This fitting was really a collaboration of the tailor and me - under the direction of my maker.

    My maker was there to, how shall I say, facilitate the desired outcome.

    The beauty of the piece is all from his eyes.




    Agree.

    Collar is where much of the jacket/coat hang from. It doesn't have a chance to "form" and show handiworks like lapels and chest.
