    Is it comfortable? The pants look a bit long though.

    It's very comfy! Peter made sure of that. Fabric wise, it's light & I've asked for Bemberg lining to ensure that the jacket is breathable & durable...

    Hmm....I didn't remember seeing someone trying out a sportcoat. But then again, there were juz so many pple each time I went for fitting. I remember chatting with someone from Canada who commissioned a trenchcoat with Peter.

    So how did your sportcoat turn out GBear?

    I liked him. Only came for 2 fittings, the basted and the final. I don't think I really needed much more than that. Though next time, I think I want a little higher armholes.

    Final product, bad pictures.

    I chose the blue donegal they had. I thought it looked much better than the grey.

    Mine was only half canvas so it was 2,800HKD, IIRC.
