    Brisa drapes nicely --- it is a pretty heavy weave (15 or 16 ounce IIRC), but doesn't wear heavy at all.

    Nice suit Montesquieu. It looks quintessentially A&S. FWIW, the width of the pants seem more in balance here than in Vox's still very nice GB suit, but it's probably a matter of lighting and perhaps individual fit.

    To me these Steeds have way more shape then any A&S i've ever seen. Which is a good thing.

    For some of us (outside of brakes and audio), the pledge is a way of life. [​IMG]

    Steed (Edwin DeBoise) DB suit in J & J Minnis 14/15oz "spot effect" flannel. For those of you who care, this is the model with the front cut.

    ^^ Lapels are too thin IMO. Rest everything is superb

    vox very nice suit. I like it. There is a time and place for everything and as such clean lines are important too.

    Please see your PM [​IMG]

    Vox - looks great! I like how the trousers are a touch longer than usual making them appear more comfortable.

    It could just be the angle of the photograph, but the right lapel looks noticeably wider than the left. Personally, I like the slightly thinner than normal lapel look on DB's which I what I did on my first one this Fall. Makes it seem more like a lean, mean fightin' machine!

    Bill, do your DBs button at the same level as your SBs?

    Thank you, tutee...will get back to you on your message.

    the black and white pics really let you appreciate the shape of suit. Very nice. But the shirt collar, vox, the shirt collar [​IMG]

    Damn Borrelli. Anway, I have high hopes for the next Whittaker collar.

    #1? Better client.

    It's not settled in yet...this is the first wearing, and this is a kind of burly flannel that still got to hang out a bit from it's confinement in the shipping box.

    Bill, do your DBs button at the same level as your SBs?

    I believe so, but I am not absolutely sure since I do not...micromanage... I'll double check when I have the chance.

    Nice suit Vox.

    The lapels look to be cut straighter than usual - certainly straighter than the bellied curve of A&S. Is this something you requested on this coat?
