    Looks great! Have you ever asked Edwin to hold back on swelling the chest? This suit looks a tad leaner than some of his other work.

    Tell me a bit more about this.

    Nothing unusual. Fabric is 11oz Lumb's Golden Bale worsted flannel from Lesser.

    In terms of cut, it's slightly short than my last DB. All my DBs have had a front cut/dart as well as the usual A&S underarm dart instead of a sidebody, so no change there.

    Thanks a lot...I've been avoiding carbs for about two weeks, and now you have me famished.

    Thank you. We never discussed the chest...so, it would just be what we usually do.

    That cloth's very nice. I like a little more shape in the waist personally, but it's a nice coat. All that remains now is for you to 'beat' the newness out of it.

    When do you pick up the Minnis Brown chalkstripe? I'm looking forward to that.

    I think it will be late summer...several things have been delayed because of Ron Hardy's ill health and passing, and also a couple fabrics have been out of stock. I have a fitting on a DB Minnis spot effect brown flannel in a couple of weeks...I might post pics of that.

    I will withhold comments until I see the Foofed version.

    You're not going to make me send it to Jeffery, are you?

    You need to be in a pose worthy of the silhouette.

    I like it a lot, Bill. I bet you could go slightly shorter if you wanted, but it looks fantastic as is.

    This is Huntsmanesque.
