    No, not yet or at least I didn't pick it up so far (but I will in 2 weeks). I'll post pictures then, but yes, it's a double breasted shawl collar overcoat.

    Your new stuff looks great, especially the back on your NSM jacket. That's amazing for the first fitting of the first jacket on a difficult body as yours.

    Thanks, yeah I agree. It's my 5th or 6th jacket with them but it's still very good for a first fitting.

    @Braddock that cloth is awesome. I wish I had more use of really heavy stuff but for some reason I seem to be in cable knit sweaters all through winter. Is that jacket shorter than you usually wear? Or is it just the angle?

    The fitter has made your back crotch higher. I suggest you to try sitting down during forward fitting ..... Plus, I see the back is too long, you may also pay attention to this.

    Uhm yeah, but usually I don't wear unlined tweed jackets on bare skin, so that shouldn't be a problem.

    Hippie! Yes, the jacket was shorter / too short on the first fitting (don't know why), but Kotaro will make it 1.5cm longer like my usual length.
