    Also, it appears that Victor's has no darts, unlike the Burberry. Although it looks to be the same fabric.

    They are similar, but I'm different.
    They are common - only fabric.
    My jacket - it is a local bespoke (I have all the jackets - just bespoke, because I have a very difficult figure for clothes).

    The form of my breast pocket of his jacket sewed a little curved (bachatta) rather than direct as in your example.
    And the lining of my jacket is not so. My jacket lining of a dark brown natural silk.

    Another of the differences - form lapels, and how they come into contact with the collar.

    And the rest - funny, they're very similar! It is amazing and funny!

    Cool, thanks Vic. You are right both jackets are amazing, is there a name for the fabric that would be more descriptive than just Donegal* - seriously thinking about getting something like that for myself, and if I can't find it OTR then I guess bespoke *I just heard my wallet cringe*, is the sure-fire way to go

    Donegal is exactly what it is. Nothing could be more descriptive unless you put the name of a color before it.

    Wary Wednesday: Back from the Caribbean, and meetings with two current clients and another prospective client with quite a grim case. Boring fit for the occasion.

    Instagram pics of today's ensemble (my fiancée's iPhone camera). Pant's are awfully office "wrinkled".

    Sounds good, I'll save the pics and see what I can muster up. Haven't really dwelled in bespoke mainly because of other responsibilities. Then again, maybe I can cool it with the RL stuff and get something nicer.

    Great outfit, head is going wild about top button being fastened...

    Instagram really ruins pics, is there a way to turn off those effects?

    @stitches, yeah, it's time to let that jacket go. It doesn't flatter your physique.

    Why is the concept of a 'hard three' button suitold jacket so difficult for so many SF members to digest?
    I see this complaint so often on here and it puzzles the crap out of me. Jacket looks fine Eric. Say it with me one mo' time SF:

    Sometimes
    Always
    Never
