    the dogtooth fabric is magnificent and I like the thought of a notch lapel vest with that, even though I would not wear one. I would think you can bypass an overcoat when you wear the 3 piece.

    [​IMG] [click pic for supersize if you wish...might take a few minutes for images to show through] Both are Steed (Edwin DeBoise) bespoke numbers in Minnis flannels. The dogtooth is an SB three piece: jacket is 3 roll 2.5 with front cuts and flap out pockets, including ticket; vest is SB with notch lapel; trousers are single pleat with English back. The chalk is an DB two piece: jacket is 6x2 with front cuts and flap out pockets, no ticket; trousers are flat front with straight back and side adjusters. - B

    Richard Anderson is the most famous, with a shop in SR and a recent riot of a book.

    Mathew Farnsworth is a more recent departee...he's posted here in between hiding Her Majesty's dimensions from their rightful owner.

    I can't remember if Joshua Byrne had an H connection.

    Thanks...overcoat need not apply when winter is but nigh.

    I'm also going to Poo it up and wear the dogtooth as an odd jacket when the mood strikes...brown horn buttons on it.

    nice looking flannels there vox.

    Thanks, Big J.

    By "rotunda," are you using a Tory term for what we call a WAYWRN Toilet, or are you referring to the stone structure in which we stored gunpowder to shoot Hessian asses?

    Great suits. Those are among my favorite cloths in that bunch.

    As to the posts about skipping fittings - never do it. Even if your pattern is supposedly down pat, there is always something that can - and will - go wrong if you have your clothes straight finished. A forward is essential in my experience.

    RSS is the most active former Huntsman/current Richard Anderson customer who posts here. PM him if you dare attempt puncturing his terrible ennui.

    RSS is also an A&S customer.

    By the way, Vox, did you request that the collar and lapels be in two pieces on the vest? My understanding is that the A&S way is to cut a notch in a single piece of cloth used for the lapels on a vest.

    The ways of the waistcoat number beyond the grains of sand in a salad from a Las Vegas casino restaurant.

    I think he was at Pooles before striking out on his own.

    Joshua Byrne was at Henry Poole. I believe he left a few years ago when Arthur Catchpole retired. If Byrne was ever at Huntsman he could not have been there long, and was never a cutter there so far as I know.
