    the pro ones are crazy money; the ones that actually curve the canvas around a shape as it stitches the canvas in.

    trousers have vintage French waistband tape, and 'Paris' cinch buckle.
    if you look closely you'll see that the trousers have a lapped (raised) outer seam, a la Conrad Veidt's suit.
    bottoms are 8.5 inch. to be worn with some sock showing, early 20s style.

    the buttons and sleeve lining are vintage.
    the black twill lining is modern.

    p.s. i decided against buttoning jacket flaps in the end. will definitely do it on another jacket though.

    I really like the 'inverted' back pleats on the jacket.
    And it looks like the welted hip pockets turned out pretty good. Chapeau!

    Pretend that you owe me nothing and all the world is green.

    thanks Mario. those pocket flaps aren't welted. they're basically sewn onto the outside (the easy way)... no cuts into the front on this one.

    I see (but I really had to zoom in a lot to make that out in the photos - and of course I completely missed that other close-up photo... ).

    How long have you been working on that suit?

    Not really that long. I think I'd probably need three and and a half years and would still be left with something that resembles a tattered Mongolian family tent (vintage style).

    HBK Very cool. I am really impressed. Of course I am in love with the jackets with all the details. The back with the pleats and belt is really amazing. The fabric is beautiful too.
    For my personal taste the pants look unsual, but of course that is because the 10s/20s look very different to the 30s/40s. I like the beltloops and the cinchback

    Quirrel: I really like the idea of a summer blazer. Quite dandy. Do you plan to wear it with white or cream pants? 4 buttons would really look edwardian. Not sure about that. 3 rather high buttons would make a 20s look? (the bottom button at the height of the pocket opening?)

    FFF,
    when you've worn wide legged 30s-40s trousers for ten years a change of trouser width is like a new lease of life.
    we men have so few options to begin with.
