Looks like just a loop to hold the front closure. The other ones are side adjusters...
Thank God I was under the impression that there were loops. Listen- I have orazio Luciani trousers with loops they drive me bananas.

I usually have mine taken off...perhaps you could get your tailor to do that too? I only don't remove them if I plan to sell it later down the line.

Slightly generic - yes. Not as distinctly English as Poole, Huntsman or C&M, etc. I believe Sexton does a slightly less expensive MtM/Bespoke program where the garment is cut in London but made in Asia - I think.
I’ve had several pieces made at W&S. Do not discount them - Sian, the cutter there is fantastic and is brilliantly adept at understanding the style choices you might suggest outside of w&s’s house style (which is admittedly fairly conservative but then so is most of the row). If you want saville row but can’t stretch to Gieves or Sexton prices IMO, W&S is a great choice.

They can advertise the convenience features of this jacket: the only DB suit that lets you urinate without even unbuttoning the jacket!
Say what you want but Uncle Ralph is still making money that most businesses can only dream about selling these tyles of clothes.

Walmart sells a lot of clothes, too.

Financial Times piece on resurrecting Brooks Brothers, echoing much of the comment in this thread on the need to get smaller and more upmarket.

Brands rebuild themselves all the time. Apple is probably the best example I can think of. Left for dead by the 1990’s, it was able to turn around but it did so based on the vision of its founder.

Brooks will need a vision and someone focused on the brand. Hopefully, gone will be chopsticks and branded golf tees. Gone will be that nasty cologne and the other tchotchkies that littered those ridiculous display cases.

I wonder if anyone ever bought the Brooks Brothers chopsticks and rice bowl that was like $2000.
