    I really really like that, GMMcl.....you too, Cleav. All these white shirts better be entered in the FC.

    Just collected this tweed jacket from Cad & the Dandy - fabric is from the Holland & Sherry Peacock bunch...

    I hope you get the general idea, despite the bad picture exacerbated by the grey weather here today...

    RTC, I suspect you are going by the knuckle 'rule' - which is, as we all should know, not an accurate guide. I have slightly longer arms (and legs) in relation to my relatively short torso. This jacket covers my backside and the vertical balance (i.e. where the jacket ends in relation to my whole body) is perfect - you won't be able to see this from the photo however.

    That's a cool looking fabric you got there. Why no patch pockets though? I've tried wearing a striped shirt with a gun check as well, but a solid shirt works a little better.

    Sleeves as well, those are easily fixed. Fair enough.

    Still, your sleeves are too short.... [​IMG]
    Not a gunclub man myself, but this cloth looks really nice.

    And the jacket sleeves are fine too, it's the shirt sleeves that are 1/2" too long. Commercial shirts tend to come in 32" at the shortest. I take 31.5". I just can't be bothered to have any remaining shirts that I bought very cheap OTR altered. Sometimes I wear sleeve garters but not today.
    Yeah, I agree. I just slipped on the jacket over what I was wearing to take a quick picture. I was actually wearing a blue blazer with the striped shirt. As for the pockets, I just wanted them like this - I don't think it's all that unusual.

    Of course, JC. Anytime.
