for my money, dear colleague,
you´ re contradicting yourself :Party:
these very appealing (not appaling :acute:)
outfits unify within themselves a classic conservativeness
AND a acmecool neo-style.
i love it !!
respectfully,
ACE-CAPS

I've already received many inquiries about this sort of thing, from modern cuts with Edwardian styling to Updated Edwardian cuts. And this is from actual propective clients that have nothing to do with the nosferatu. Is it a fad, perhaps, but for me this is prime realestate to make my transition to modern bespoke. I love it.

I like them. I dont know how anyone can criticise the construction from those pictures. If it keeps tailoring alive, bring it on!
In todays world of fashion, who would notice any of them on the street, except with envy.

i like them too, and think they're smoking hot, but there are some serious quality control issues. for the runway, it's a little surprising they passed. but the style is great so it isn't a deal-breaker. HOWEVER, let's not forget this is a forum for cutters and tailors, not just fashion aficionados, so we're going to have something to say about runway construction errors! :D

Has anyone noticed the odd flap on picture four, Is that ment to be there?

If picture two was to walk past me in the street, I would think he was just going to collect the rent!

I see it now, the same on picture two! I have not seen the flap so close to the front edge before, is this a new thing?

nope, problem is this designer did not scale the the pockets to these skinny wankers so you have regular sized pockets on blokes with a 30" chest, thus throwing the visual appeal off

nope it's crooked, looks like the canvas is breaking on the shoulder causing the fullness of the chest to form in front of the scye. So yes and no?

I love them all. To have this "trend" catch on in a big way? Our trade should be so lucky! May it spread like wild fire deep over a whole new generation...


...in an artisan-inspired-neo-classic-edwardian-2011ish-&beyond kind of way, of course!

You know, I might just keep my current system and keep it since it seems to be a hit here. I'll straighten the NP a little make a couple of changes (that make sense in modern draughts) and do a sample or two old school and see how it goes (along side modern samples as well, don't want to get pigeon holed).

This is the result of good idea,s mixed with bad execution - a train wreck. The same design,s with a bit of thought in the cutting and make up process and they would be great.
It sticks out a mile which designers have learnt the trade properly and which ones draw pretty pictures.
