Fox Air Suit in indigo colour and Fox Basket weave jacket in indigo colour. I am sorry for the bad photos but I have just received the cloths from my tailor. Really happy with both fabrics.

I really like the suit. Only thing I would change is perhaps lower the gorge a smidge. Other than that, it looks great.
I understand what you are meaning. Although the gorge seems higher than it is due to the taking of the photo. Thanks.

The 15oz Fresco takes some getting used to. But the 9-10 when lined is a very different animal, as rustic as it can look relative to fine tropical worsteds
I ordered a 3 patched sport coat in the BlueFeel dark navy hopsack from Drago. It's crispy, dry, very airy, heavily textured and it has some technical values as being stain and liquid repellent.

Is there wool in that?

Have a Spring Ram on order. Jacket with unlined sleeves. Anyone can compare to other high twists?

Like the sporty big brother of Fresco 9/10oz. Makes up beautifully, deep colors, very hard finish. They're not kidding about the Cheviot content.

Looks like it came out really well and I love the fabric. I think the balance of this jacket is a nice improvement on your last commissions with the skirt proportion significantly tamed relative to the shoulder and chest width. It's interesting to see both darts extended all the way to the bottom of the jacket. Not sure I have ever seen that before. Does your tailor usually do that?

Yes I did. Think circa 280-300g.
Always happy to revisit this one! You did the necessary run of nailheads and POWs, plus a solid blue. Plainer dark navy or Oxford grey would be useful as well. (Just thinking forward to a summer 2023 wedding.)

Thanks! Re darts. They are extended darts. Quite common on neapolitan style jackets and you can see it on some of sean Conner's bond suits. He doesnt usually do that. I requested it. On my last few commissions I specificallt requested extended shoulders and a draped chest akin to the 80s armani and ralph lauren stuff and he concurred.
