Greetings. I would like to make a correction in some of wrote I said in my 6 Sep 10 post on this thread / topic. Mr. Sanjay Suri has made good on my order after a 12 month wait. His reasoning is due to a hard drive crash (they only have one computer in India?) & unsure about mid-19th century British military jacket patterns (he said he had the patterns before I paypaled the remit). I would love to post some pics of his work and the 3 new jackets, bloody technology, posting photos is not my fortee'. What I received from Sanjay works for me although it was maybe 85% of what I ordered. I did have to re-sew cuffs for better fit, move some of the lace around and alter some minor areas. I was pleased to see good workmanship in the rest of what I received, linings were completely sewn, his buttons are plain domed round steel buttons and melton wool material was good quality. If anyone knows the easiest way to get pics posted, chime in.
Cheers, Johnnie, 93rd Highlanders, 1812-1857.
