    Huh? I'm sorry, am I missing something here?

    Just saw this. No fight la, mine's done by machine. JTok's is so much better!

    I have a cat at home. Unfortunately, she's not the friendliest around!

    Did the body canvas come supplied as black or do you dye it with Dylon? It came as black. I usually reserve these for the more porous dark coloured fabrics like fresco, but I've run out of my regular one as of late and haven't had the chance to replenish. Until then, I'll just use these. I've worked with horsehair for the chest and it wasn't the best experience.

    I do a kind of forward fitting, but generally not as advanced as yours. Chest canvas laid, but lapels unpadded.

    Since you've quoted the man, then in LKY's own words, please allow me to "bring the House back to earth". I've seen keepers on side adjusters at other Singapore tailors way before. The same applies to the use of selvedge along the inner jacket pocket.

    A rekindled love of canvas bags

    Omg stalker! It's coming along nicely. Shoulder drop issues. Hope that gets fixed when I receive the jacket in January. The canvas tote is amazing.

    I just bought a Ichizawa Shinzaburo Hanpu tote. I like totes. They're easy. I'm lazy.

    J, I can't get it at GBP 50/m with shipping either. As you probably know, there's a stock-keeping distro here --but it's also a rice wholesaler.

    Eh? One can get H Lesser in Singapore without being a tailor and without shipping it in? Very attractive since you get to avoid shipping fees and GST! Also, replied your PM but no response.

    I'm not an expert, but it looks like horn.

    For a while I thought you were JTok. Probably due to the style of writing. Nice button.

    Perhaps I can't decipher the handwriting the pics posted in the link, but I really don't see any 90% cashmere
