    I can assure you that there is only 1ply of hand made wadding in those shoulders.

    The fabric is very heavy and thick, about 19/20oz and the client is quite square in his shoulders. All of which will give the impression of it being more structured in a 2D photo than it is in person.

    The jacket will wear in nicely over the Fall & Winter and soften off as normal. Especially at the top of the sleeve head.

    Here is a photo from the fitting. This was this Gents first commission from us after a single fitting so we’re pleased with the result and will check in with him in a couple months to see how it’s wearing.

    Cheers,
    Matthew Deboise

    I like what I see overall. It's as good as it gets for a first commission.

    Thank you for your prompt reply.
    As indicated in the post, my experience has been
    quite the opposite. I too have broad square
    shoulders and any padding seems to exaggerate
    this. But then, I am not your customer.

    Also recent Steed. This jacket is much improved after a few tweaks earlier this year. Now it's what I was hoping for, a versatile, lightweight, summer jacket. The cloth is @dieworkwear's navy houndstooth fresco from a couple years ago.

    It's a Fox Flannel that @Fishball designed to be similar to the "Agnelli tweed." I like it better than the blue windowpane on grey options that seem to be in most books because it also has a narrower white windowpane next to the blue.

    This is a better photo of the suit fabric.

    Very nice. That's now in the Fresco III book, no?

    Beautiful. I have some of the LL Agnelli Tweed in Mr Despos shop being made up right now. I can see the difference better in this pic.

    I don't know. The one I ran was under the Fresco II quality. Slightly different, but pretty similar.
