In all the excitement of the past several days I failed to mention that I picked up one of the two jackets I was having made. Naturally, the one I wanted most to be ready in time for Thanksgiving did not make it in time, as it turns out neither did I , so nothing lost. Gratefully, the rust herringbone is completed.
I'm still a bit put off by the sleeve length, but that will be corrected next week.
It feels and moves superbly, and already has become one of my favorite jackets.
Thanks you Kaz, the tailor.
