    I think the patch tweed is from Huntsman and is made with swatches of their various house tweeds. If it isn't, then there is another one of those crazy section 100 sportcoats floating around.

    Actually, that sneaked in from the Andover Shop.

    Fantastastic as the clothes are on the mannnequins, these are real people, the tailors and cutters, in them.

    Who are they all? I can see
    Carl of A&S, Allen of Huntsman, Grant of Norton, Sexton, Hitchcock of A&S...

    Aside from the Court Dress and the many white tie
    examples, the rest of the clothing seems very structured:
    Savile Row, as defined by Huntsman. Am I missing something?

    Sherwood seems like a nice chap whenever I've seen him around too.

    I've always thought that Royal Horse Artillery uniform was a thing of beauty.

    pics are terrific, thanks for posting, I realize I need to stop buying clothes for now and to hit the gym, those mannequins have great frame.

    I don't know what it is, but I want it. I wish it were 2B though (or 1B I suppose, being a Huntsman)

    I don't know where you live, but they take it with them on their U.S. trips. Make them an offer.

    It is a nice jacket. When the arms were cut, it would have been nicer if the pattern had been rotated out about an inch.

    I thought that I would say that before Despos felt he had to.

    I believe that's the "Astaire" model.

    It is indeed. I requested the same for my first jacket from them.

    What do you mean by that? You requested that cloth, or that the sportcoat has a particular cut or features that make it the "Astaire" model?

    The latter, cut has open quarters, slightly higher notch, nipped waist.
