    I'm actually confused by those pants. No side or back pockets and no zipper/button fly. So you have to entirely take off your pants to use the restroom, and your pants can't hold your wallet/keys/anything.

    I'm still trying to figure out how he even gets them on. Well at least he doesn't have male camel toe showing. I guess that is a sign of good tailoring.

    Thanks! It's a 500g heavy tweed from Holland & Sherry from the Harris Tweed bunch.

    Thanks; I'm afraid I can't help you, though, it was from a bolt and I think there wasn't much left.

    Finally a good picture of the finished Casentino polo coat:

    Very, very happy with it. I was a little afraid I wouldn't like the orange lining, but I love it (and it's the traditional choice), was also afraid it would be too heavy, but it just feels like a warm, cozy blanket if you put it on. Also, the fabric dresses up and down fantastically, a plain worsted suit looks as good with it as a chunky sweater and denim. :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:

    Next BnT fitting. Only thing I would like is a slightly wider leg opening on the suit pants. The angle of the photo makes the torso to leg proportions look a little weird, in reality the pants draped beautifully. The pose and thin 9oz clothing the suit make it look quite 'unsettled', in reality it sat very well
