I'm guessing this is the right place to go, because I'm looking to have made a very untrad, weekend/with jeans sportcoat. I have this coat from Shanghai Tang:
Attachment 14081

Attachment 14082

n tan and love it. The front placket can be folded backto make it look like a regular sportcoat lapel or it can be worn as is. It is unlined and pretty unique and I find myself reaching for it a lot. I'm thinking of having one made in a herringbone, but not sure if it would be possible to do an unlined herringbone?

Also, my big question is this, the one thing negative for me about the jacket is the size of the pockets, especially if I do a herringbone, I've thought about getting hacking pockets with a ticket pocket, though I keep debating with myself because I think that would ruin the "Asian" asthetic of the coat and the east meets west of the pockets and overall design would not work. Would appreciate any thoughts!
