Here are some fit pics from my new custom 55J14 made to measure with a great patience by Shawn and his staff. An amazing quality for such a price. I order an A2 immediately....

Hi Shawn: Can the M-422A be made with a Bemberg Rayon (aka Cupro) lining instead of the cotton twill?
Any of the following colors would be acceptable. Note they are all duller than the twill in your sample.
English names include burgundy, wine, port wine, plum.

Hi Dear @zoomer

Nice DP, In Fact new..

Thanks for providing me an opportunity to explain more about this, Actually due to the durability point of view some buyers suggested me the thicker material so I made a thicker Cotton twill and they liked this.. May be its not right according to history but still demanded and liked by many buyers, For a historically correct colours I also have the very close colour which I also Posted images in this same thread, You can find this Wine Red Satin in many of my made articles like for Mr Thomas, Please find its some illustrations below

Please find the waist band I am offering... Any specific requirements can also be made I have a deep research and work on them
The M-422A used a special weave called rib-rack. It is single-ply and used only on the waist, not the sleeves. It looks like this:

Something that I have not heard mentioned, and something Shawn might want to look into if he has not already done so. Were original Navy jackets put together with cotton thread, and do the well known producers of repros use cotton or a synthetic thread of some kind?
