    bi-swing back/ action back
    curved-style breast pocket

    A slightly odd looking garment but one you will doubtless cherish.

    Nice sport coat with action back....I am in the process of commissioning a military style coat with action back too. Which tailor are you using for this project?

    Odd? The action-back is a classic design.
