For me, the drape cut is more about the look. I do find my drape cut coats to be more comfortable. But aside from movement, I like how the excess cloth and bit of swelling at the chest give the coat a certain silhouette. Kind of moob-y, but maybe also athletic. Something very romantic about it. At least for me, as I love those old photos of A&S suits.

I'm a little dense. So would you be so kind as to let me know what "moob-y" means? I've not heard the word before. Thanks!

I have also ordered from Steed via Zoom after it became apparent that they would not be making a fall trip and was happy with the fit. I was quite happy with the fit of the last jacket which was tweaked after their February visit. I have full confidence that if something was off with the fit they would adjust it. They had to recut my first commissions from them from 3 years ago after I dropped 3 inches in chest and 4 in the waist without charge.

Ideally I would wait until they return to US but don’t see that happening in the near future. I will be ordering again via Zoom after the holidays.

I've really enjoyed these videos the past couple of weeks, I think it walks a great line between being technical but also not loosing laymen in the process

Also, it seems like they have a hybrid MTM-bespoke option (MTM with 1 fitting and hand finished) which is seems much more inline with my budget than full bespoke

Has anyone on the thread commissioned anything from Redmayne before?

Dropping all of those inches isn't very Texas of you Dan! Good job!

Paging @Roy Al to the courtesy desk.

I believe he has.
