    Ok thanks guys for your answers, I guess I will have to wait for his. Fingers crossed since Cavuto has gone back to Japan and I wanted a Japan/Florentine mix ;).

    Visited Steed this afternoon in San Francisco and had a fitting for this Henley-style blazer:

    It's made up from one of Fox Brothers vintage flannel bolts. It's a pretty lightweight flannel, now all gone. Steed is making it with a one-piece back, patch pockets, and a two-button close. Underneath the blazer is the shell of a vest being made up from No Man Walks Alone's custom run of Oatmeal Flannel, also from Fox.

    Your jacket looks too short...

    From what I recall - the jacket covers my butt. But we'll find out shortly :)

    Think it's the camera angle; looks fine from behind.

    Nothing unusual: single-breasted, two-button closure. Two patch pockets, welted breast pocket. Double vent. It will have a light canvas and a light lining, with a little bit of padding in the shoulder.

    @CharlieWhite

    I just got back from Florence and fittings with Corcos. He told me he will not be accepting any new customers for now, but as others said you should check with him directly. If that is the case though, you should blame @Leaves for occupying 80-90% of Kotaro's life right now :nodding:

    I see. I contacted him and we agreed on a day to meet (so in my mind it's also agreed to launch a suit at least) so I might be lucky and be one of the last of this round, then there will be no need to blame anyone for his insatiable appetite for Corcos' suits ;).

    What can I say, love his work. :) But I do it mostly to delay Shorts-Boy Braddock's and Der Sander's stuff to be honest. Ha!
