    Would that suit be considered to have drape at the chest?

    Mine? Very slightly. The canvass is a bit tough.

    I disagree. I have a Fresco blue blazer by WW Chan that is veeerrryyy unstructured and looks great and is super comfortable. One of the jackets that gets the most wear from my closet.

    I recieved a bunch of cloth swatches today, some Frisco ones included and I was really suprised how open the weave is and how significant the see through effect is. I'v read read about it's attributes on here quite alot, but still it suprised me.

    Yes, I recommend to be very careful with linings and canvas colors for darker fresco.

    Looks very good from the front shots. Who is the tailor making the garments? What is the cloth on the sport coat?

    Am thinking of a windowpanes... a suit for next summer, and possibly a DB odd coat with the Alsport.
