    Everything I can think of is either underwhelming or impossible.

    You should know better than most how much effort it takes to underwhelm. It is not a simple thing at all.

    Changeable buttons? Then it must use cotter pins.

    However it ends up "unfolding," I like the double breasted vest and the hidden hole to hang the chain. I have only ever put a chain through a button hole.

    I hope we will soon see a good picture of the vest on and a chain and maybe a good fob in place.

    I have never seen a DB vest with a seam down the center front.

    I was speaking in jest. I'm actually quite curious. I just can't fathom, that's all.

    Does the vest fold under to become SB, no lapels?

    ^ I noted that too, but I haven't seen enough vests to really know what I'm looking at. I wonder if it has any bearing on the "secret." Though I doubt it.

    If there is anyone who knows about double breasted vests it certainly is Manton.

    Now you have.

    Do you have to rewrite your book now?

    No, but Sator may have to rewrite his. Mine is not about cutting.

    Can you ask Edwin what is the point? I can't think of one that touches on fit or shape or style.

    I wasn't sure about the concept until I saw your offering...looks like you pulled it off. Well done Billy Bob.

    I don't know...but I just looked, and that seam is on both left and right. You'll see that the chain hole is on seam on the left...

    A hidden, center fastening point is on seam on the right, at the center under the cross.

    I have the hidden fastening buttons too, but no seams. Odd. My pattern books never show a seam either.
