    Here are some pics of a new bespoke coat I had made up. Pay no mind to sleevelength, they are correct, but look off in the picture.

    Rubinacci works its magic once again. Nice job, Matt!

    Nice - I also want to bring notice to what appears to be Bertoia chairs and a Saarinen table in the photos.

    Nice color. Looks great.

    I noticed those, too. Is that a Gursky on the wall behind you?

    That is a great looking jacket. Who is the tailor? Really gorgeous!

    Fantastic coat. I love the overall silhouette. Very distinctive in an understated way.

    Wow, that is a lovely jacket. The natural shoulder combined with the suppressed waist create a very elegant look. If it is a Rubinacci, I'm a bit surprised it doesn't show a bit more drape in the chest -- it looks quite clean through that area.

    I also think the pitch of the pockets' top is interesting, and clearly the mark of a bespoke garment.

    Also interesting is how the seam runs all the way through the pockets to the bottom of the jacket, which makes it impossible to line up the fabric on the pockets with fabric on both sides of the seam below the pocket -- notice how the stripe on the inside part of the pocket doesn't line up with a stripe below.

    Wear it in good health.

    Love the waist suppression, and how the shoulders have presence without going over the top. Very nice.

    Soft, but structured. Flawlessly cut. Well done Matt![​IMG]

    Tsk, tsk. There is no structure there. Philistine.

    Even better, the appearance of structure where none exists.

    I agree, it is lovely. Drape at its best.

    Stunning jacket. The patch pockets complement the casual quality of the cloth you've chosen; I may need to rethink the whole idea of patch pockets. You've adroitly avoided the cliches of hacking and ticket pockets. Thank you for taking the time to post the pictures.
