    Spherochromatism is not just a river in Egypt.

    It's highly probable you may be the first!

    While we are on the subject, I'm curious of your opinion. Do you think the Doobie Brothers were , better, worse or about the same with Michael Mcdonald?

    Did you catch my phrasing, I learned this from opthamology school.

    I looked at my Solito pocket just now. The vertical sides are not quite parallel but the inward one is not canted all that much either. It's nicely curved otherwise and I have nothing else to say on this topic except that I like it.

    But then how else will people notice my commission? If my pick-stitching is understated & moderate, then dammit, the general populace will know that the angle of my barchetta was handmade by a blind master tailor against his better judgement.

    But the pocket is not made flat to the chest in real workrooms. The pocket is made on the curved edge of a half moon. That's the way we baste the pipes on the lower pockets too.

    If you hold up a front (the I way I prepare one) by the shoulder, the front will assume the natural curve of the body on it's own without any coaxing.
