Jacket #6, To Really Push The Boundaries

This jacket was developed in conjunction with a wedding party suit that was being made for an old mate's wedding in which I was to be the master of ceremonies. I decided to add a little flair for the occasion by donning this jacket for the speeches. The silk, which is a male and female skeleton with a heart between them, was supposed to be a metaphor for 'marriage - till death do us part'. You can guess by now that I am a little obsessed with shawl collars.

The highs: It is magnificent to look at and the lapel is made from a heavier mogador black satin silk on the lapel which looks so elegant as a shawl lapel.

The lows: You can't wear this jacket more than one or twice before it's over-baked. Such a shame.
