- Reaction score
My dinner jacket that I've had since college finally gave up the ghost (the satin silk lapels were treated pretty rough back in the day and are showing too much wear), but it hardly justifies the cost of refacing the lapels. Since I wasn't inclined to buy MTM or bespoke given the limited use and RTW cannot fit me, I looked on and off for a lightly worn vintage bespoke model that was very close to my measurements. What I found and bought was made just off the row probably fifty years ago by "Edward Angel LTD" of 118 Shaftesbury Avenue. Anybody have any knowledge of them? It's well made and a bit in the drape idiom. Could it perhaps be related to Angels the theater costumer?
