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

    my monitor must be really crappy, I don't see any of that, particularly since the collar is not even done.

    Trini, you may want to consider a shirt collar that is a bit lower in height, a bit more spread and 1/2 or so longer points.


    What do you guys think of the shade of blue. It's for pants, I thought it was a great shade for the spring/summer for brown linen jackets, grey jackets and the brighter spring stuff. It's got a luscious hand.

    I wouldn't wear it to the office. Seems more of a "weekend" fabric.

    Trini,are you going 3 patch on all of your sport jackets? Something funny going on with lapels,little gaping there but can't quite figure what it is. It is looking very good though.

    Mae sure that left sleeve gets the attention it needs.

    Looks pretty good, a bit bright perhaps but would work just fine would that jacket.

    OK, here's something that might interest you guys. Frank had mentioned that a customer brought him some cloth that was (Major Fabric Producer's Brand Here) Gabardine Super something. He said he wasn't totally sold on it, even though the selvedge was clearly (Major Fabric Producer's Brand Here). Lo and behold, he was dead on. When the (Major Fabric Producer's Brand Here) sales rep was at the shop, he showed him the fabric. The rep felt it and knew right away something was off, and said that its not one of theirs. Upon further inspection, "Gaberdine" was misspelled on the selvedge. Turns out that there are many counterfeit cloths that are Made in (guess where...) China, and thrown onto the market for purchase. I thought the fake D&B bags on Canal St were the extent of the counterfeit operations coming out of China. This blew my mind. Moral, just make sure you examine fabric you buy closely, especially if you get it at closeout prices or discount fabric stores. You really need to know your shit to avoid getting scammed.
