    Slewfoot, that looks fantastic.

    Yes, looks really good. Get us better pics, though.

    So, again, could someone repeat the secret to getting such good results from Chan?

    very nice - looks like Chan is definitely a master of his art/trade.

    thanks for sharing.

    remember this from the summer ... digging the shorter length ... very hip.

    Not sure about a secret except that I think it's very important to do the fittings in HK. It seems to me that you would be getting more attention that way. I did measurements and fabric selection in NY and then fittings in HK. I think I did 3 fittings in HK as I was pretty specific on details. A few things I neglected to mention (in hindsight I would have made the breast pocket a half inch higher), but they pretty much did everything I asked.

    "Front seldom tell truth. To know occupants of house, always look in backyard."

    That's a direct quotation from Chan.

    i think PG has indicated that was the main reason for his success with Chan too - multiple fittings and being very specific on what he wanted.

    Here is a veritable smorgasbord of photos containing DB coats that I have found attractive/interesting/inspirational... or hot tranny messes. Either way, I have learned something from each and every photo, and hope that this collection may help revive this thread. Enjoy, SF.

    A 'Maxwell' I gather, based on the filename. He is probably wearing Tom Ford, FWIW (5 cuff buttons, massive ticket pocket).

    Very good looking Graham Browne DB.
    I might be biased because I'm also one of their clients.
    Never ordered DB from them though.
    In fact never worn any DB in my life.
    Tempting though.
