Excellent British WW1 Service Dress Jacket (2022-07-28)
I deliberately ordered one of these jackets from the older production run as they are far more accurate than the recent ones. They are a good quality serge, a decent colour shade and with the correct white-drill partial lining/reinforcement. They are also tailored correctly in the characteristic WW1 "box" shape that was unfitted unlike later garments. I ordered a 46" and it fits very well indeed although a little short in the body for me at 6'3" (a long fitting was out of stock). Sleeve length is great. I've since replaced the collar hooks with more substantial originals and given it a good steam press which improves the appearance no end. Additionally, I've added a row of machine stitching around each sleeve at the shoulder and passing over the epaulettes as per originals. Inner seams are overlocked which contrasts with originals which were left raw but these are hidden when the garment is worn. All in all a very, very good reproduction of this classic garment !
