    In my experience, this is an area for which nearly all my coats has required a bit of extra attention.

    Great looking overcoat MT. Is that herringbone blend from the LP book?

    I don't think it looks loose, but I think it's on the lower side.

    Eddie - lookin' great!

    I believe it is, although Mina will remember for sure as it inexplicably took me a few months to finalize the fabric for this first overcoat commission. :embar:

    That looks really great, Eddie. I'm looking forward to seeing your coat as well. When's the next fitting?

    Coat looks great but I'm not sure I dig what's going on at the bottom / hem there. Is that NSM's typical aversion for lining? The folded part and sewing is unusually visible for an overcoat. Is the fabric on the lighter side for coating ?

    Could be from pressing. Some *gasp* steam might make it less visable.

    Wait, you smell that?
    Great overcoat MT. Aren't the sleeves a bit short though? I would think they be long enough to cover your jacket and shirt sleeves rather than showing cuff...

    Has anyone successfully made an appointment for the London trip? M & D are meant to be here in a couple weeks but I haven't gotten any response on email.
