Great to see it's being put to good use! Enjoy!
This is definitely under consideration - I have a jacket currently in production from that book. I like the feel of it a lot. Have you found that it keeps its shape pretty well?
I have the same one and it definitely keeps it shape nicely. I don't wear it too often (too many sportcoats!), but always enjoy it when I do.
yywwyy: Looks good. Next time, I'd lower the breast pocket 1" and shrink the lower patch ones a bit.
I am over cashmere and have now become a huge fan of escorial. I can get you a length but check with whoever your tailor is. When I get home I'll post pics from the book, there are a few herringbones.
yywwyy, those patch pockets are way too big, should not be above the bottom button. Also, lower the gorge and breast pocket next time.
Agreed that patch pockets are huge. It's all exacerbated by the angle of the photo- doesn't look so off in person.
I have a coat with the lighter than navy herringbone Moonbeam. I like the look and feel of the cloth, and it holds its shape fine. However, the cloth just feels very delicate. I haven't had the coat long enough to comment on its durability, but it just feels like it will wear through easily. It also gets a little fuzzy, like the way a sweater piles, and it attracts hairs like a magnet.
The apparent placement of the gorge and breast pocket are almost certainly the result of taking the picture from a low angle.
don't ever contradict me on the internet
Oh, noes! I haz angried the Morel!
Quick! Run and hide behind that half manequin!
David, can you please stop including the Vass boots in your signature unless you are able to cut them down a size so I can purchase them? Thank you.
Apparently today is the day my humor falls flat.
If it might please the Morel, I will note that I am wearing one of his creations today.
