    Doc: why haven't you ordered from Bernard Weatherill yet? They'll be in NY next month, and visit 5x / year.

    Mariano almost vomited when I asked about one, so sadly no.

    Does a pleated back count?

    I assume you mean a box pleat? Possibly, depending on the size.

    Thank you.


    Have you used them? The current incarnation strikes me as a distant relation of the original.

    Sounds like a sartorial equivalent of "double or nothing."

    Does Luca no longer come to New York or did you have to have the fittings with Mariano?

    A close friend uses Kilgour* and I have seen several of his suits. A somewhat standard military cut, but with softer shoulders than people like Dege, M&M, Welsh etc. Its quite a good look. I don't see why they couldn't make a solid effort at recreating the original for a customer - they seemed very eager to please without the prescriptiveness of A&S and Hunstman. And, as I mentioned, they visit NY 5x a year now, a frequency unheard of amongst SR firms.

    * Same firm: Kilgour = Weatherill. They'll make clothes under either label.

    Foo: In all seriousness, some pics would be appreciated. I'm on the lookout for a new overcoat design, and a look at yours would be helpful.

    I also have a bespoke greatcoat from Rubinacci, but she has leukemia right now and I can't show her to you.

    I hope it is stain resistant for when all your adoring fans on Styleforum get a glimpse of it.

    "Thirties War Footage"? The Spanish Civil War?, The Italian Invasion of Ethoipia?, The Sino-Japanese War?,
    The Winter War?, The Chaco War?

    Which conflict do you imagine yourself in?
