    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    the pinstripes should line up...the only reason they shouldnt is if they didnt have enough cloth...or they arent good tailors...

    A stripe doesn't have to match at the shoulder seam.

    Another question about the vest posted by @Fortunato :

    Why is the back of this vest made from the same fabric as the front? All of my vests have backs made from different (lighter weight solid color) fabric than the front.

    Why are you concerned about the stripes not lining up? No one (except you and your cleaners) will ever see that seam.

    hello, and many thanks for all your answers !

    1. this was a vest ( Pics ) made for my wife.
    2. Front and back, is the same cloth, always we do it like this. i find - it looks good, the backside thing is the material is solid, warmer and it does not wrinkle as the usual thin material! by sitting and driving car it looks without jacket from getting wrinkled! my father in law can even tailor this way. hope my english is understood.

    Molloys has a look that other tweeds like Magees seem to lack. Is it my imagination? Speaking as a person whose grandmother was a Molloy LOL!

    This tweed is not the same one actually, but I made it for a client and liked it so much I thought I'd get one.

    Yeah, theres just something very modern but also old fashioned about Molloy. I think its mainly the colors they use.
