1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    No, I read it. It is just... so, sad. ;)

    I appreciate your empathy, sir. May this evening's commute be free of all of your subway nemeses.

    That pocket does look a bit strange in the picture -- very small and sort of oddly shaped... is it? or is it just the pic?

    aj's comment has merit and it's a funny thing because I had this conversation with one of my coatmakers last week about the position of the buttonhole to the top edge/gorge of the lapel. As a result I am moving it downward to be more functional. If you place something in the buttonhole of the lapel on this jacket, it would sit way too high, maybe above the lapel and be all wobbly

    What about with peak lapels, where the collar provides more support?

    Why do you say more support? I would think less. Would put a bit lower on a peak, just the same

    Could be the picture itself because the jacket is not worn but I have yet to see a patch pocket NSM makes that I like.
    Also agree that the lapel hole placement appears to be higher. I wonder if it was requested.

    I was just thinking rather than the notch space above the lapel you have the collar coming down to meet the top edge of the peak.

    Guys, this is not NSM's house patch pocket style. I imagine that vox asked for that square shape to replicate the vintage style of the jacket drawing he posted above.

    They touch/meet but don't support each other. Sometimes we put a single stitch to connect the collar and peak to keep the peak from flopping about but not always. I do a lot of peaks with a V opening between the peak and the collar edge.

    There was a series of William Powell movies on TCM last night. The movie I watched had so many stylish suits. Powell had a beautiful shawl jacket, very impressed with the shape. Lots of tweedy suits and jackets with really great peak lapels. Proportion and balance is everything. Nothing looked exaggerated or extreme, just great style.

    I like seeing variation. My patch has a teardrop shape but I would make the style of this jacket, no problem. When will we see the lower pockets?

    I see. I couldn't tell with the lapel edges, must be my crappy monitor. Thanks.

    The rare unbuttoned Parker shot, because it's Casual Friday*:

    [​IMG]

    Tie and square** by Rubinacci, pants by Ed (Morel, not DeBoise.)

    * Couldn't do tie-less like Greg.

    *And yes, I tamped that fwocking square back down later.

    Answering your question would require providing a long list.

    Is the unofficial gun club by Carlo Barbera (defunct) for H. Lesser & Sons (defunct)?
