    Please advise me what differences exists between non-wool sportjackets made by Hardy Amies and those by Chester Barrie?

    Are both Amies and Barrie cut so that the jacket length covers the whole trouser seat, or is the cut shorter?

    Thanks very much.

    I'm not sure what difference the non-wool bit makes, but my wool Chester Barrie covers my seat. I am 6'3" and wear a 46L.

    Thanks very much, powerkicker! My attempt to formulate more precisely failed. I just wanted to specify which jacket cloth I had in mind (because I'm interested in washing it). You are probably right the cloth doesn't influence the cut. I'm glad to hear the cut covers your seat. I'll keep that in mind if I order from Chester Barrie.
