    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    So having scored all that tweed I couldn't afford, I then parlayed that into a bespoke hacking jacket (the design I'd been obsessing over for about... six months?).

    It came out almost exactly right, the two things I want to alter will cost me less than 20 bucks at my regular tailor.

    First bespoke hacking jacket, first bespoke anything. Not to be the last, as he's now working on a pair of brown llama wool twill chinos for me, agreed to cut me a discount on the other three tweed coats I'm planning to have made, and my batshit tartan pants.

    Will be posting pics wearing it tomorrow, but I just got home and the lighting is shit.

    design looks cool, but really hard to see the shape with all the shadows.

    either way, congrats on your first bespoke!

    I would have liked them a bit narrower myself, but when explained the functional aspect he told me they had to be wider or they simply wouldn't meet... Or did you mean the notch?

    Is the tailor local? It definitely looks like a Liam piece, we're going to need pics with it on though!

    I think the width is OK, but the angle and the big low notch look very dated to me. In the context of this garment you can probably make it work, but since you mentioned you're going to have other pieces made I would absolutely want to address that next time. Ask for a small notch up at your collarbone.

    I'd misidentified it a few times before. This MAY be the same, but given the age of the bolt that I bought there's a good chance its no longer in production. this seems pretty similar though

    And you don't call?! Seriously though, nice belt. I love Sid's belts; fantastic construction and hides. They wear great too.
