    Interesting, the front dart is not yet finished. I just sew this kind of basting fitting in Korea before. Where does this tailor come from ?

    Fair enough but I do recall reading that the two button look [​IMG]
    was very ivy/brooks brothers.

    I do think a little spacing is preferable. Moreso the third jacket on right, not the leftmost. As with all buttons on jackets, the spacing that looks best is a case by case basis of the particular jacket features, the fabric, the type of buttons, your mood, how much coffee you had, etc.

    B&tailor is based in South Korea but they cooperate with a Swedish tailor called Robin Pettersson Tailor that is the one who has taken my measurements and does all the fittings.

    I've created an instagram - https://instagram.com/artisanagora/ - where I hope to build up a really big library of everything thing bespoke. So if, next time you upload a picture - I would like the opportunity to also post it on instagram.

    Someone who is an advocate of the ivy/trad/brooks brothers look. I'll get my one button on the next sport coat.
