I found that not even the Savile Row tailors understand the pics they see nowadays. It's better to take an actual vintage suit.

Joe's done much better than anyone i have gone to in the past when it comes to first trys at making difficult designs.

I can pull out a number of nonfunctional examples of action backs that you can find on the racks right now.

When Joe gets it right I'll post those pics too.

It depends who you see, this firm would have little difficulty making any type of action back you desired.

I've never used them. Have you? I just thought that sinse D&S have been cutting action back jackets since the Civil War that they might have a handle on it. [huh]

I have a good friend who uses them and likes their action back cut. I don't like the look in general, so I would never think to ask my tailor.

Sack fit

Your beginning to open my eyes to todays sack fitting jackets, smile.
The more I see these designs the less I see in todays suits.
