A Work in Progress...Part 4...Button, Pressed and Ready To Send

This is the final part of the series.."A Work In Progress", of which we have followed through the making of two bespoke sports jackets/coats.

The first jacket is the exclusive LLTW20 from The London Lounge Cloth Club. Which is a Blue Shetland Tweed with a brown window pane.

The second jacket is the JJ Minnis 7704.

As you can see from the pictures, the jackets are back from the hand finisher (see part 3) and are now ready for the final press and buttoning which was done by Andrea, and then prepared to be shipped off Stateside.

Also, just a note to mention that the jackets are modelled by Dad and myself for the purpose of this article.

If The Shoe Fits...

I was just having a bit of fun one afternoon with Matthew & Andrea, explaining how I could draft a jacket pattern for Matthew just by using his shoe as the only guide. Needless to say they asked me to prove it.......

Unfortunately we have had to cut the video into two parts around 8 minutes in length as this was just done off the cuff on Matthew's iPhone.  

The first video is just an introduction with a brief explanation as to what is happening....Enjoy...                                                                             

These videos have also been posted on to our new YouTube channel that Matthew has created called Steed's View Channel..We will post any videos that we make in the future here as well.
