You can bent it backward and button it so it is hidden away. At least that what mine has for last year version. The 2019 flap was a separated piece I believe
That's right.

And you can button it back, indeed. When you do so with the woollen versions of the coat, because the cloth itself tends to be quite busy and camouflages details (for better or worse) the fold (of the tab going back on itself) is barely visible.

Yes, I saw the corresponding picture on your site: https://www.sehkelly.com/images/shop/[email protected]

At least in the picture it seems visible but it might be different in real life. But of course, this is a "design element" of the coat and I'll just have to evaluate how much I like it. It's rather a minor thing, though.
I don't notice it one bit when the flap is pulled back. All the texture distracts the viewers and at a few feets away, 3-5 mm extra thickness doesn't make much difference imo. But definitely think about it, I like the extra feature and asymmetrical when the latch is out, that just me :D.

Agreed, I have last year’s version and the tab is not noticeable when buttoned back in person.

I think the dark green will be fairly conservative, as it is very dark, being mixed with the black. That said, there are some colourful flecks in there, such as purple and red. But overall, it'll be a dark green tweed, and with the herringbone pattern quite muted unless inspected close up.
Any chance to see the cloth zoomed out / at a normal distance? Just want a sense of how it will look IRL not looking at a close up swatch

There's a photo along those lines below the close-up photo of the swatch at http://sehkel.ly/bal -- though admittedly it is of the same swatch.

I was just surprised when you said the dark green herringbone would be quite muted, as from the swatch the pattern seems quite prominent…

Guess it’s too much to ask for your model to stand outside for a medium-long shot holding a yard of fabric?

He doesnt have the fabric, only the sample swatch afaik. The fabrics are on the way.

I photoshopped the chosen two over half of the completed coat. Tried to make the color overlayed the whole coat but ps was glitching out and it looked odd, so i settle with “painted” half. The image is approximately, somewhat

It's all subjective!

I think the dark green would sit alongside the two balmacaans we made last year, in navy-grey and brown, and so that's my frame for comparison. And also in the same frame is the mid-grey one, which is certainly more striking, at least in terms of the prominence of the pattern.

We don't have a yard of fabric, alas — the cloth is being woven to order.

Anyone have fit pics of the current model? I'm 5'9" 160lbs and wear a sz 42 jacket, looking for a roomier fit so it's hard for me to tell from the pictures on the item page how a size L would look on me; a size S on someone 6'1" 38 chest seems like a decidedly different fit.

While your at it taking photos of the Balmacaan, would there, perhaps, also be possible to throw in some pictures of the DB-set in cedar?

I’ve been holding off on them, since I can’t get a clear reading on how they would look worn together.

I'll make a note!

I don't have any to hand besides those "as worn" on our website, but perhaps someone else who has purchased one in previous years will pipe up.
