    Rather unusual is the white piping on the waistcoat of this sporty suit! This was normally done for elegant evening suits or formal morning wear.

    It's interesting to see the small, 5th pocket on the waistcoat (just above the right side pockets).

    i think it's been added later... doesn't look very well done.

    A faux slip on the waistcoat of a sport suit - looks like someone has taken HBK's quote about "dressing up" one's country wear a little too literally...

    Pen pocket, rare but I kind of like them. I put one on a Harris tweed waistcoat I made for a friend. The other originals I've seen also had a bit of a sag from pushing the pen clip down.
