It's really interesting to read about your fitting alterations as I'm sure these are quite common ones - they're among mine, at any rate. Amazing result - in a style like this, fit is all, and you have nailed it. Well done!

This fits perfectly; very RTW. I really like leather binding on sleeve.

Looks like we had the same gaping back neck problem that no one else seemed bothered by. Congrats for figuring out how to properly fix it. I might like to see how you did it. Great color on you!
