    How long will the 38L be? Bottom of collar or total length?

    To be honest, the one thing I'm not a huge fan of is that underlining of the lapel sticking out on the edges of the lapel... but that's just me.

    I am a big fan of the peak lapel, roped shoulder with patch pockets. I'm currently having a fun summer sport coat made with wide peak lapels, patch pockets, etc.

    Good for you, W.O.E. - really cheering you on. I too and starting my own business- scary, daunting, exciting, fun.

    Go for it!

    I can not see myself wearing those jacket but the squares are proper porn. I will get at least two or three of them.

    The L's will be about 1.5" longer than their regular counterparts, so total length of the 38L (from bottom of the collar) will be approx. 31.5".

    Regarding the lining peeking out, we could easily use less of an underlining for anyone who wanted to temper the look a bit. In general, the underlining will not be visible unless the collars are upturned.

    From the guy who does the dirty work:

    "The measurements are purely garment measurements. Pit to pit is a body measurement.
    However, on the garment, "chest to break" measures the distance from lapel fold to lapel fold.
    If you look at a photo of a jacket, there is a gap (empty space) in the middle/front of the chest that isn't covered by the jacket's fabric. This space is not counted in the chest to break measurement.

    Whereas "chest to the lapel edge" includes the unfolded lapels' width. With the lapels unfolded they overlap so this width is larger than the pit to pit.

    So essentially pit to pit is in between these two other measurements but is not a fixed point on the garment since it takes into account either the gap or overlap both of which fluctuate slightly depending on the wearer.

    Note: The Back length measurement is from the bottom of the collar seam to the bottom end of the jacket"

    Good to hear on both regards; might put in an order sometime. How long do you plan to run each look/jacket? Until the fabric runs out?

    Yup. I plan on keeping the jackets around until the fabric is used up, then re-assessing based on demand.

    Great-looking stuff, w.o.e.

    Beautifully designed squares, and the jackets are reminiscent of electric-era Miles Davis in the best of ways.
