    It might help if you told us how wide it is. Looks fine in the photo.

    Those look cool. I was in APC to try and get a new pair of New Standards...my pair of 30s are beat up something good, so i wanted a fresh pair. Couldn't even button the new 30's, and the 31s were already too big, so with a stretch...

    I was bitterly disappointed.

    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?

    My Porter orders arrived over the last few days, managed to grab a fair few items and all fit well, which makes a change for me.

    Acne camo jacket (love it)
    LVC 501s
    Smedley sweater
    R&B cardigan
    Couple of PS shirts (floral / pink chambrey)
    Burberry slim blue chinos
    Gitman white ocbd

    Will try to get some photos up over the next few days - pretty busy packing up for a trip atm.

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