    I am increasingly impressed by Chan's work.

    I can say the same about Lee Baron's work. Everything looks really good, though.

    The brown corduroy 3 piece came out nice...perhaps I'll get the courage soon to pull the trigger [​IMG] Is it fully lined or partially lined? The DB suits look great for your figure...especially in Flannel [​IMG] Have you gotten the slanted pocket and extra ticket pocket out of your system...or will you continue to this style???

    Thanks everyone! I'm very happy with everything.

    Michael - the corduroy jacket, as all items here, is fully lined. I'm sure I'll get something else in the future with a ticket pocket and slightly angled hacking pockets. It's definitely not my default, but when done right I enjoy it.

    pvpatty - look forward to seeing your Peter Lee results!

    They've all come out well and look fine on you.

    Why do the Peter coats have a different treatment of the linings/in-breast pockets? Whilst different tailors may have been involved it is somewhat unusual.

    The Harrisons corduroy and Minnis Flannel are great picks!

    Hi GBR - in terms of the linings, the Chan photos were taken beneath the pockets where the fabric swatch was located. Peter Lee's were taken at the pockets where his logo is inserted. There are some subtle differences between the two and their pockets, but not much.

    Thanks! Glad you approve. :^) And thanks again for your info on the Smiths. It feels almost weightless, but has great shape and looks fantastic. The perfect shade of medium gray and mottling in my opinion.

    ^ The gray flannel seems to be getting far and away the most love from the selections! Tough to choose a favorite for me. I need to wear them more. It's safe to say that the Breanish is the most fun. Not a fabric you see every day.
