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!

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

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!
