Those are some huge patch pockets in that last suit, but damn, that’s nice otherwise!
Do you have any upcoming DB commissions with Steed? Would like to do a 4x1 summer jacket in a few years with them.

Personally I dislike a high buttoning point if you are going to go for a 4x1/2x1. Just feels like you're missing the bottom layer of buttons of a 6x2. Me rike long lapel swoop of low buttoning point!
It looks fine.

Cloth and configuration details please? Is this a new venture, what made you choose Chan?
It's just a navy hopsack DB. I haven't decided on configuration...meeting for basted fitting next week.

I've used Chan a lot in the past, but nothing since before Covid. I have never had them make me a DB before, though, and since I'm wearing DBs more, I thought I get their take (I've always liked their DB cut...).
