These might singlehandedly be the tiniest little lapels I've ever seen on a band collar double racer jacket. Thanks Yahoo Japan Auctions for turning me onto a whole new world of cuts I didn't even know existed.

I'd prefer it if the left lapel was 0.125'' wider.

exposed tennis ball under lapel for best fit?

^ Well, I mean, it has two little baby snap lapels, is made in lambskin (Cafecto is only steerhide), a different band collar style with no snap closures, a double hemmed waist, no shoulder epaulets, no coin pocket, the lapels are cut away from the band collar and a random snap down near where the front zipper begins.

Other that that, yeah I guess you could say it's a variation...
