The great thing about getting your clothing made-to-measure is that you can get things that don’t otherwise exist.
Last week I visited Jay Walter, who heads up J. Press’ made-to-measure program, and he showed me a corduroy sportcoat he’d just finished for a client. The jacket was rendered in olive, that popular heyday hue, and showed a combination of Savile Row and Ivy League details. The jacket was an undarted three-button with hook vent, but featured hacking pockets and a ticket pocket.
Kudos to the jacket’s new owner for creativity. Any ticket he puts in that pocket will be first class. — CC
