Ask Andy and the Belt Back

Tailoring isn't just fashion and draping goods over a human form, it's anatomy and knowing how to make the wearer feel as though they have nothing holding him or her back.

Which leads me to Andy's new belted back bi-swing jacket. Made inside and out like those of the old days. 

Got to catch up with author Andy Gilchrist of before he headed off to New York. Thankfully I was able to get some pics of his bespoke Matt Deckard Apparel sports jacket over lunch at Cole's French Dip in Downtown LA.

Andy asked Matt Deckard Apparel to make him a sports jacket that could take him anywhere, meaning from the countryside to the modern boardroom and then out for a night on the town.

Andy's Bespoke Sport Jacket
Three button front with tab collar for full closure at the throat if desired. 
Button through box pleated pockets for carrying any daily needs.
Belted back for waist suppression detail (always looks cool).
Bi-swing back for complete ease of movement, after-all, the jackets for complete functionality... can be taken hunting or to the office without a qualm.

Very classic Hollywood in style, harking back to the days when the stars were as tailored as they were talented.
