wasn't this jacket part of an English shooting outfit? I wonder if the button placement is for a functional purpose like shouldering a shotgun...I think he notes in his breakdown it is 18.5" from his 'neck point' which is the same measurement indicated on his Rubinacci tweed and Solito summer jacket

definitely agree on the fabric choice and the pattern matching on the sleeves though, can't imagine dropping $8K and then being disappointed and never using it...or even spending that amount at all on something that would be so niche like an English shooting outfit. Makes me wonder what sorta disposable income he has or if he's some sort of distant British aristocrat

Based on those fitting pictures you're right, that is a shooting rig. It explains the pocket choice on the jacket, to hold cartridges, and the breeks.

Might be better to try Hunstman RTW. Was made by D'Avenza previously, correct?

The first fitting of my first ever bespoke suit. Harrison’s Cru Classe 12oz I think. Obviously a bit tight across the back there. Is there anything to look out for at this stage or does it seem okay?

Totally forgot to post pics but I tried on the first fitting of a three piece in the navy Drapers Ascot 4-ply. That stuff drapes so well despite being just 12oz. Going to bring in the lapels .5cm and drop the lapel 1cm for a bit better balance. For some reason the lapels looked gargantuan compared to the two tweeds from winter despite them measuring the same.

And for summer:

Suits in each...? I love the green/brown but think it would be a bit much as a suit. The petrol linen solaro will be a suit for sure. Thoughts?

I see just a sport coat with the 25020.

Peter showed me that petrol Solaro in person and I thought it looked really nice. Hard to capture the fabric accurately in photos, I imagine.

Agree that wool-linen would be better as a sport coat.

Agreed! That jacket came out great. All of my stuff needs more work, which is fine, since it's for spring-summer anyway. Fun to hang out with Peter and sacafotos, regardless!

General question(s) for the group - What percentage of your sport coats and suits do you get partially lined (either half or quarter lined)? What sort of criteria do you use in making the decision to go partially lined (is it for specific weaves/cloth weights, or based on intended season of wear)?
