Fantastic Winston, not only do you have a great White-Tie ensemble, you have the opportunity to wear it as well.

Dear Winston,

Your white tie look is spotless! I'm also considering buying a vintage tailcoat, but I am hesitating about the sizing. Being abroad it's likely that I won't be able to try the tailcoat on. When looking at the key measurements and comparing them with a contemporary and rather slim fitting suit jacket, would you say the sizing should be similar or even snugger?

Also what's your take on vintage Austin Reed quality? Might not be bespoke quality, but still worthy?

Kind Regards,

Mikko
