    Also appealing is that they are cheap for CMT...


    Would you be willing to disclose just how inexpensive they are for CMT? Please. [​IMG]

    I think it was $650 ($50 of that was partial lining, another $50 working sleeve buttons).

    Great thanks. I remember reading before that their suits start at $800 in wool from no-name book and $650 for cotton. Since you brought your own fabric I thought the jacket alone would be $400 or so plus extras. I guess I was off a bit. I am surprised they charge extra for partial lining since one would assume full rayon lining is included and partial lining is less work.

    I should probably stop speculating and give them a call. [​IMG]

    Partial lining is more work. You have to finish all the interior seams rather than just covering them with the lining.

    My understanding is that partial lining generally costs more because it actually is more work -- they have to do a nicer job since the stiching will be visible, whereas if the jacket is fully lined no one will see what is behind the lining.

    Beaten to the punch -- and by a more complete answer.

    Thanks for fishing this thread out again. I too had been wondering how the jacket was faring??? Carl Goldberg at CEGO was pressing me to try Ned's.

    Still waiting on the cable from Sony. They said they shipped it two weeks ago but USPS has no record of receiving the package. They're sending out another. So I should be able to take pictures in a week or two.

    The jacket held up well during a warm weather vacation, when it was worn heavily. As of now, I think it was a decent purchase, primarily because it would have been hard to find elsewhere for the price.

    Here's a picture, taken on my Buenos Aires trip. Not the best at illustrating the jacket, but it will have to hold this place until I get the jacket out of storage.

    partial pic looks good. I can't tell from the photo but is the pocket square the same material as the shirt?
