    Thanks Naka. It`s an old vintage cloth without a brand name. I have a feeling by the width of the cloth that it could have been a ladies cloth, but makes a fine jacket. There was a comment in a previous post I had the picture up that for such a soft cloth a 3B patch pocket would have bee great too - a fair comment, as the patch pockets would have fitted a more casual style. A difficult and rare cloth to style, but I think Suzuki-san did a great job.

    What's the weight like? Vintage/no name fabrics excite my inner hipster, especially knowing if you have probably the only bolt left.

    Regarding the styling, there are many around here that have a disdain for single-buttoned odd jackets, but I quite like them, especially with hacking pockets. The only thing I would change on that particular jacket would be to angle the breast pocket a little more to balance the angle of the hacking pockets.

    What are the quarters of the jacket like? I would love to see a picture of it being worn.

    I`d say its a 12oz or so. It was from the final bolt! I`ll post pics soon, still early autumn here, but will try and shoot something this weekend.

    Look OK, be good to see them being worn to see whether the man can fit his client.

    Only one back pocket without a button on the trousers looks unfinished.

    Looks weird. Jacket basically looks like it's way too big. Jacket is too long, so are the sleeves. Don't know what's up with the huge skirt flaring - might just be your belly.

    The buttoning point is too high IMO. This serves to emphasize rather than flatter the shape of the abdomen. And DG seems to have a slightly dropped right shoulder, which hasn't been accounted for in the making leading to an impression of asymmetry.

    I think, DG, you should post this in the Tailor thread and get A Tailor and Despos's views on this because they will have a better idea of what to do.
