Yeah the detail pics show some nice touches. Check out the Conneryesque cocktail cuffs. And nice pattern matching on the overcoat.

It seems a pity your career is moving in a different direction - with work like this you might pick up a few clients from this board for tailoring jobs!

Yes, I'd agree with the above comments too. Neat stitching.
Nice mini-pocket on the trousers. I've always liked having a secret mini-pocket just inside the trousers on the other side from yours so its hidden from bouncers/ plod but then that's just me and my dodgy ways.

Yes, it is a bit more classy than the original hidden pocket you refer to.

You've definitely got a great talent Lisa. Put me on the list when you start to take commissions (obviously at mates rates  ;))

Loving all the little details on the cuffs, collars and the checked trousers. In fact, the more I see the DB suit, the more I want it! Great stuff, Lisa, and good luck!!  :)

Thanks all really appreciate it!

That trouser pocket idea came from my tutor not knowing what a ticket pocket was and asking why i had a silly little pocket on the jacket above the main pocket and telling me to scrap it because it was pointless?! So i put a 'silly little pocket' elsewhere so i could get away with having one on the jacket.

haha Steve i'll pop you on the list but you'll be waiting a while yet!

I can't believe your tutor didn't have an idea of what a ticket pocket is! Doesn't he know ANYTHING about clothes? I know most people thinks clothes are there just to cover our bodies, but being your project about clothing isn't the man in  charge supposed to know about the stuff?

I know it's from the brand whose name we never mention, but I quite like the look of this one:

Any thoughts yea or nay?
