    Nailhead?

    Is nailhead different or another term for birdseye?

    ^ Looks great! The one slight nit I see is that the collar could be a little higher around the sides and back of your shirt collar assuming all your shirts are around that height. I'd also make sure the shoulders are as soft as possible. Have fun with it!

    TRINI, that's the best looking '70s couch I have ever seen.

    Trini,

    Looks good overall but the lapels are not sitting on your chest. Might be the chest is not wide enough.

    The right lapel is pulling off the chest and away from the collar.

    I really enjoyed the front design of your jacket and how well it fit on you

    Do you plan on adding any additional padding on the shoulders...given your sloped shoulders?

    I hope not. Why would he kill a nicely done natural shoulder slope with some padding?

    Thanks for all the comments, gents.

    The sleeves are still basted on right now so once complete, there shouldn't be any roping.
