    I never mentioned I wanted 3 roll 2, I asked him for a 3 button coat. I just never button the top button, at the end, I asked him to roll the lapel just under the third button. It is more 3 roll 2.5, I don't know why people get 3 roll 2 and don't like it.
    You are probably better off to go with a regular shoulder Frank makes if you have sloped shoulders, his neopolitan jacket accentuates sloped shoulders, I actually regret I asked for it. If you have very squared shoulders, you may give it a try.
    If you have any questions, feel free to pm.

    Yeah, the coat looks really good. The coat will be perfect for NYR's walks to work this winter.

    Thinking about starting with Ercole's to be my CMT tailor to supplement Chan. Can he do more english/structured styles or is it very italian (I would imagine most of you guys are requesting minimal padding etc)? I have spoken to them on the phone but personal experience would be better evidence.

    Thanks!

    I've seen a lot of English styled stuff...so yes, more than capable.

    The default style of Ercole, the father, is a structured shoulder. Frank is more accomodating to requests for a softer look.

    That's very true. Ercole prefers coats of armor with roped shoulder.

    Robs coat looks even sicker in person, even when random strands of thread attach themselves to it. I was pretty envious seeing it up close.

    I find I get the best results when both Ercole and Frank are involved in my projects.
