thanks everyone. kit - yes there are pockets in the bottom front at the seam. here is what the fabric and seams look like close up. there is a very subtle pattern in the fabric. nice pickup, looks great. what alterations are you making? shorten the arms a bit. also it has no buttons or buttonholes at the cuffs, so tailor must make buttonholes and sew buttons on. yoox final insult is that they forgot to include the horn buttons for the cuffs, so I must cop separately. lulz yoox. leather arrives on Wednesday . . .
