    I think that both jackets are little short,they also appear very boxy with very little shape.

    I agree that the waist could be nipped a little on both, but I kind of like them...they seem comfortable.

    I might be seeing Edwin early next year, your jacket convinced me to try him out. Are you planning to get anything else made by him?

    Definitely at some point. Just need to figure out what and when.

    Bon Voyage! Off to Hong Kong for this lovely London Lounge fabric and buttons and Ermazine lining.

    Look forward to seeing it again soon!

    Hm. Definitely not short; not sure how you'd be able to tell since my legs aren't in the shot.

    And Frank suggested taking both in at the waist (which would be in line w/ my suits), but I told him not to. Might take the blue in a bit...we'll see.

    He just got my length of fabric for my next jacket. He's as excited as I am to get it made up.

    The green stuff; about 14oz or so and tons of color. Hopefully it will be ready by the time the cold and wet SF winter kicks in. Going to get fitted when I'm back in Brooklyn over Thanksgiving weekend, and plan to take delivery in December.

    Still thinking about lining color and whether I want 2 or 3 patch.

    You don't muck around with your London Lounge cloths. Looking forward to seeing it finished. I have the same cloth and the Corn Shetland both have to wait since we are going into Summer here. Btw the Steed jacket came out great!

    I'm going to see Frank Sr. for a fitting Saturday after Thanksgiving. If you're in the hood, let's grab a bite or beer.

    If anyone is interested in a trade, I have a Lesser Golden Bale Navy Flannel with a burgundy overcheck, little more than 4 yards...

    I'm looking for:
    heavy, windowpane SC Fabric (2.25 yrds)
    medium weight, camel colored fabric for SC (2 yrds)

    but would be open to offers if something strikes me.

    I'll have to take pics later, but the piece is beautiful, so looking for equal quality in return.

    NYR: I'm interested in the Lesser - pls send pics when you have them.

    Scruff: The coats look nice, but I would also urge you to have the waist tapered a bit more.

    Got a couple of pms on the Lesser, but would really rather do a swap than sell outright...here are some pics:

    Last one shows the color pretty well...I'm really picky about what I'm looking for which is why I just don't want to sell outright.

    I also have some LP 90% 10% Cashmere dark brown herringbone I bought off of Ed this summer that I'm looking to move, real nice fall/winter fabric, but I had another jacket done in similar so I'm selling at what I paid Ed, $185 for a little more than 2 yards...I'll post pics and would also consider a trade for this as well...but this I'm more inclined to sell if there's interest.
