    I think the shawl lapel DB is really cool and haven't seen too many examples. Personally, I'd skip the belt, though, since I thought the point of a wrap-around overcoat w/belt was to forgo the buttons.

    The DB shawl lapel was a terrific idea and it looks great

    So much win in this tread. I had a great time reading the last 43 pages...

    The green jacket and grey flannel trousers are finished, as is my brown casentino coat (but it was too hot for that, don't worry, you'll get soon sick of seeing it, I love it so much):

    The second fitting for the navy flannel was really good as well, will be finished now. Really looking forward to it, simple navy flannel is one of my absolute favorites.

    You can say that! It already looks brilliant on that tiny pic.

    The instagram pics are stunning. How many green jackets can a man justify? Surely it must be double-digits, right?

    I wish it was a tad bit longer but it fits well. Try a wider lapel and 3 r 2.5 button stance next time.

    Jacket looks way too short, IMO. Also looks a bit tight, but oddly extended along the shoulder line.

    +2 on length and tightness. Also, he accommodated your dropped right shoulder well on the jacket; but I am afraid less so on the overcoat.

    The problem with the shoulder line is - my odd shoulders :) See this jacket below - where the shoulder line isn't extended ! But maybe you mean something else ? And the jacket does almost cover my butt - maybe 1-2 cm above it.
