    They are "OTR-plus": a Dutch MTM-store has them made under their label. You pick a size and colour, and tell them what you want to have changed (length, width of the legs); they're then send to a tailor. The alterations are included in the price.

    are they still available?

    Short cotton jacket

    Is the coat part of a Caruso MTM suit? If so, did you specify the lenght or is this just how they made it?

    (I'm still trying to find out if my local Caruso MTM pusher can arrange for me to use my own suiting, like I believe you did with your (Fox?) flannel suit.)

    you guessed it! took advantage of one of the really great deals currently avail at the greenbrier. What a place....absolutely stunning from arrival to departure, and the "sartorial flavor" of the place is wonderful/ service perfection/ enforced dresss codes made for a superb experience. Amazing, how they keep everything so polished and perfect so it doesn't look old. never seen so much polished marble in my life.
    Foxx it's great to see pics of the Greenbrier, it's one of my favorite places to relax, dine, and have a bit of fun. The last time I was there we stumbled upon a bear while on a hike. [​IMG] It was a horrifying moment, especially since I had my 20# dog with me. It ended hiking for me, but gave me a good excuse to relax and eat the rest of the time I was there. [​IMG] Although I'm more like 7-8 hours drive away, I tend to make an annual visit to either the Greenbrier or Homestead, both are stunning. This year it'll be the Homestead.

    No, it's one of my early MTM jackets (no Caruso).

    (I'm still trying to find out if my local Caruso MTM pusher can arrange for me to use my own suiting, like I believe you did with your (Fox?) flannel suit.)

    Actually, my MTM supplier ordered the fabric at Fox and had it send to Caruso.

    Don't tell me you didn't wear a bow tie.

    I see, thank you. I'm waiting for an answer on whether they'll allow me to order my own suiting and have it shipped to Caruso.

    C, is this from one of your previous MTM orders or is this new?

    Either way, I need some unboxing shots!!!!
