Personally I think only a 4x1 or 4x2 configuration looks good with a patch pockets. Coincidentally I also think thisconfigurstion is the only one which looks reasonably good worn unbuttonedGoing to save this picture and wave in the face to anyone who says that patch pockets look bad on a double breasted jacket.
That's excellent! It looks very handsome and, especially with the welted pockets, has a very clean, distinguished silhouette. May the wedding be at least as successful as the tailoring.
I can't help with those questions, I'm afraid, but I wondered if you have some tailor recommendations in VN you could share? Also curious where you're sourcing your fabric from, and if you've been able to get it into VN without getting hit hard by duties. (I've paid 60% on shoes!)Hey guys, so I have consigned few pieces since the last I asked for your advise on my navy suit. Thing turned out well so far, except the quality of the fabric available here in VN is still sort of lacking (quality fabrics are much more expensive here due to import tax) so I have decided to order the fabric abroad myself to cut down on this cost.
My current project is a 6x2 (convertible to 6x1) double breasted jacket in navy Scabal fabric. With this jacket, I’d like to use brass buttons. Because the fabric has a little sheen on which I did not realize when ordering, my original plan to use matte beige horn buttons do not works. On the other hand, quality brass buttons not available here in VN so I will need to order them from abroad as well.
My question is, what size of brass buttons should I get for this jacket (both sleeve and front)? Is there any rule that I should follow on choosing buttons size? I have approx 44 inch chest and 19 inch shoulder across if body size matters. Also, beside brass, what other type of buttons would you recommend on this type of fabric?
Appreciate your kind advise.
Hi it has been Hanoi Peak Bespoke for me as well. Phuong - the owner is a very nice guy who is quite passionated in tailoring. I always stay there couple hours just to chat with him about construction or any interesting project he is working on. Actually all of my friends who was referred to Phuong have been coming back to him with new orders.I can't help with those questions, I'm afraid, but I wondered if you have some tailor recommendations in VN you could share?

Edit: Whoops, I know you've answered this before for me! Sorry for the repeat question. But if you've come across any updates in the past few months, I'd love to hear about it. I've had some nice success recently with Hanoi Peak Bespoke, and I've got another couple new ones to try soon...
