    I've been going to doctors all my life and they never mentioned this horrible deformity. I was even tested for scoliosis every year of grade school and came back fine. It took posting a jacket on Style Forum to find out how deformed I really am.

    Am I seeing this correctly? It seems as if Steeds work shown on Vox has a lower gorge than traditional A&S, no?

    I don't think A&S traditionally has a high gorge. I asked for a high gorge, though Mr. H. said that he was going to give me one anyway.

    I think part of the confusion about A&S is that despite their house style, they really do make an effort to cut for everyone differently. For instance, I know a regular client for whom they cut a very long coat--past his thumbs. It looks right on him. It would look like a frock coat on me. I didn't say a word about length. It was their decision to cut me a short coat, they said it suited me better.

    Without seeing the head, it's tough to judge posture. I wouldn't draw a conclusion from just seeing a portion of the body.

    Foo does vein analysis with just dicktures.
    Would his analysis benefit from full body and face pictures?

    I also like him when he's semi-drunk and not posting. But my confusion is not about Bill, it's about this suit. I don't want to derail the thread but I don't get it. I hope I just didn't trigger the wrath to the foo by mentioning it.

    It's a shetland tweed sportcoat in moss green paired with light gray flannel trousers.

    It looks like a polo sportcoat from the kids department [​IMG]

    Just kidding.

    Apart from the little x pull at the button I see no obvious problems with this fit.
