    I saw Edwin and Mathew in Chicago but didn't order anything.

    It was great to see you Chris and Matthew and I very much appreciated the cakes and pastries you brought for us and if you had said, I'd always give you a trade discount. [​IMG]

    All of these guys are of a kind. Their basic cut is the A&S cut, the make is the make of A&S-trained tailors or the same outworkers. What differences you might see are probably due more to the differences among clients than among cutters. I believe that ability and quality vary among the A&S family and I cast my vote with my wallet as others do with their choices.

    I suppose my stuff tends toward the cleanest while still draped, and more waisted. But Edwin will happily make you something more sweater-y. I think all these guys can adapt to what you like...how successfully is perhaps another matter. Hitchcock Junior's stuff for Butler, for example, reflect Butler's taste and personality in ways that I hope we all expect as given in a bespoke garment.

    I agree! - as to "unique or tedious client requests" I have presented Steven with my full share, and he takes it in a stride, as a challenge and with a professional result.

    Steed (Edwin DeBoise) bespoke 3 roll 2 jacket in Scabal 12oz two-ply tweed, three patch (for those of you who care, this is a model with the front cut, swept-cut fronts, and vintage, curvy A&S patch shapes)

    I don't know. I've never asked for a specific width. I think they are about four inches.

    Yes, it does.

    Looks like a solid. What cloth is it?

    And would you wear it to a club with suspenders?

    For what it's worth and with all due respect for your and your tailor's expertise and efforts, I think they still look a bit boxy,
    especially the longish breast pocket. Perhaps that particular fabric even enhances that.

    Here's an example (the website was down, so I couldn't find one with a patch breast pocket) with a little more 'swing',
    which I like in patch pockets:

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I realize my comment is based only on a few pictures, but when you look at those, the difference seems quite big.
    I think it has to do with the size/proportion, the placement and the shape (especially the top line of the pocket,
    which seems to be entirely straight on yours, or do they go up a bit on the outsides?).

    What do you think?

    Hm... I saw this one after I posted my last comment. That looks a lot 'swingier' than on the other pictures...
