Crooked Cut

Edward Elgar

It is a shame this method of coat making isn't used/done anymore. It's a beautiful technique. At least I haven't seen anybody doing this for a very long time.

The way the fronts are pushed forward. Wonder if it is a four button coat.

Definitely an Edwardian (not in the sense of Edward Elgarian!) four-button coat.

Not sure about it being crooked in any special sense. That's just something you do as a fitting/design adjustment.

As gorgeous as the coat is, I'm guessing most men are happy that shirt collar hasn't found its way back into vogue in recent history. :-\

Fronts are pushed forward because of the strong canvas inside.
Tailoring is the love of doing art at OCD level. :D

In dutch, we call them "vadermoordenaar"... Interestingly, the French (much spoken in bourgeois Holland and Flanders then)  called them "parasites" (Mit-Esser?), that when spelled slightly wrong, becomes "paracide", latin for someone who killed their father...

I love that kind of background to language, thank you Hendrick.
