    Pic is worse than usual. Arguably useless. Sorry, camera not cooperating today.

    That's really cool. Love the DB.

    Like Lincoln too.

    Who made it?

    yep, nice one, have been waiting for this one to hit SF [​IMG] Like the style very much. If I were to commission a bespoke overcoat, I suspect it would look very close.

    I'm sure you guys are basing your compliments on his great taste, but I can't see a damn thing in the pic. What I do see is a very tall, very lean man, with a slight silhouette.

    As for the appearance of the cut, maybe its a taste thing, but I think a shorter coat may flatter you more since you are so tall. Does it make sense to want something to make you seem shorter? Maybe I'm wrong on that one, but for me a bespoke garment's first reaction shouldn't be "Holy shit you're tall/short/fat/skinny"...in fact, it probably should be the opposite.

    I would like to see better pictures though.

    It actually has a pretty decent waist.

    I hate, hate, hate short coats. Must go past the knee for me.

    Is your mirror the kind that sits on the ground and leans against the wall?

    If so I think it is the cause of the extra lankyness.

    You should hire Vox's crew to take some decent pictures.
    As he is incognito these days, he won't need them for a little while anyway

    Thats awesome. I'm sure at 5'9.5" I'm as exactly as tall as someone famous in American History, but you are the envy of all American History teachers with your stature!

    I was surprised it had so much waist, to tell you the truth. That's why I like it.

    I can see the coat pretty clearly, or at least its outline.
