    Not enough pockets to my mind.

    I have two ticket pockets - and on both sides. None carries a large weight or bulk but it means everything is in its place. This coat seems to lack a pen pocket.

    Jfk368 loves to see the cloth and David Reeves labels in the inside of his suits!

    ....never mind all that handwork! ;)

    JFK is a client and I coined that phrase, I actually don't like to see cloth labels in my suits as a rule.

    Have you ever thought of doubling up on the Reeves' labels? Left side, right side, that sort of thing. Also, maybe put one under the jacket collar, that way it is visible when your clients (inevitably) pop their collars whilst carousing at a neighborhood hip hop discotheque.

    (also, why don't you like the fabric labels? I've always liked having the labels of the tailor and the fabric for whatever reason. I guess it makes me feel like the jacket is a part of a longer process)

    I sort of think a high end bespoke suit should just have the maker and client name on the inside breast breast pocket, its an old fashioned idea and something just a bit ingrained in me.

    Nah, I think demographic is more electro pop.

    Why should you advertise for the mill? What's in it for you? Amirtie?

    David, I finally got a chance to wear your suit. It was a HIT!!

    It need some work on the shoulders, something we didn't notice before. When I hit the lottery, I will be back.

    I wouldn't say I feel like that but where do you stop? Why not put an end credits of everyone involved in the suit? Hah now that would be interesting to do!

    I think it's something RTW implements better as a way of showing the customer why something is a certain price, or for the purposes of educating a customer on the type of cloth they are actually buying. The latter is what I'm interested in knowing about, when buying RTW.

    In bespoke, it makes less sense, as the customer should be well aware of what cloth they picked ahead of time...

    Yes, it took me awhile, to say the least.

    It will become my favorite suit.
