Graham Browne: Neapolitan lining
As mentioned in a previous post on this jacket, Graham Browne used the inspiration of my Rubinacci jacket to work on an alternative construction to the half-lined jacket.
The same cloth (Harrison's Moonbeam) is used in the internal lining of the front quarters, around the ticket pocket and inbreast pockets. Interestingly, although there is no pen pocket on the inside of the right forepart (above), the stepped lining is retained for the sake of consistency.
The patch pockets have more shape than some from English tailors, narrowing more towards the top and echoing the curve of the forepart, but the style is still less accentuated than on Neapolitan coats.
