Wow, these button holes look very nice indeed.
Those canton work tailor will never have something legit as these.
The self-claimed shanghai tailor....something close but not as nice.
Really? I've seen some really nice buttonholes come out of HK.
The boutonniere has always been a problem. We've been making gradual progress on it, going from a faux boutonniere which is traditional in this country to working ones (but not that good), to recently pretty good working ones and now we've added a braided loop on the underside.
Here's how to press the pocket flap without leaving an imprint on the bottom.
I think I've just invented something quite new. I was sitting here at my desk, thinking of how to make the jacket truer to its function as a piece of personal luggage. I thought of a customer of mine who has an intense need for pockets, and how I can fashion a jacket to be more accommodating to his pocket needs.
Then, an idea came to me. I've never seen this in any jacket before. It is very executable and I think people who use their jacket pockets heavily will love it to death. I didn't think it would be this easy to innovate in this area.
I'll see if I can incorporate this in the next jacket we make and take pictures.
have you seen ted baker's rumple resistant suits? they have crazy amounts of pockets.
No, I haven't seen the Ted Bakers. I would not want a person to look at my jackets and say they have crazy amounts of pockets. Implementation must always be elegant.
I'm tempted to give my invention a German name, like VW's Doppelschaltgetriebe, or A. Lange & Soehne's Doppelfederhaus. I want to call mine Doppelfachtasche.
Ancient trouser pattern being used again. I hope they fit.

I'm supposed to make somebody a greatcoat. Here is Sator wearing his:
I see also I scared. Can't believe I committed to such a project.
Here's the C&T thread on the greatcoat.
What is the choice of fabric? I would love to have a greatcoat made up.
He provided me with what appears to be a black carpet.
A coat at mid-calf length looks rather heavy and prevents one from reaching underneath the coat so I prefer (aesthetically) a mid-thigh length.
What do you want to reach underneath the coat for? everyone will say your coat is too/fashionably short. You might not recover from the humiliation.
Oh you make overcoats as well? Brilliant.
reaching under the coat? sounds terribly perverted.
Nice! I am very keen to see the end product. I assume overcoats also come with different padding options like in suit/sport coats?
Step 1: unbutton coat
Step 2: reach where you want.
Quite fine by now. In another 100 jackets, maybe we will reach Brioni levels.
