Nick, your workmanship on this jacket is overwhelmingly good. You have truly inspired me.

Gorgeous! I really like the skeleton lining and how your seam finish matches your lining.

Thank you, everyone! Julia C, I made the trousers and the bow tie.

Lovely sport coat!! I'm planning to make a sport coat for my fiance in the somewhat near future and recently purchased a similar fabric. I'll keep my eye out for this pattern - thank you for the note about the armholes. That's interesting to know.

I agree. Great jacket & very helpful review. Your entire outfit is very dapper. Did you make the pants too?

You continue to impress with the quality of your garments. I do menswear alt and I wouldn't dare touch your work! I agree about vintage patterns having a better armhole fit...I've been making a shirt from a 70s pattern that is much improved over modern patterns.

Beautiful job! I have made my young sons blazers, but have yet to tackle a men's version. I'm very impressed!
