  • "H.R.H. The Prince of Wales has an 8x3 double breasted blazer he has worn often for the past several decades. It looks as great today as it did in the 1970s. 8x3 refers to the total number of buttons on the front, eight, and the number or rows that button, three: this is a sharp, old-school cut that few have had the cojones to make in recent years. Ours is handmade in New York, and, like Charlie’s, has five working buttons on each cuff. The Drones Club buttons on the front and matching beehive cuff buttons complement the secret stitching under the lapel, VBI MEL IBI APES: ‘You catch more bees with honey.’ Happy honey-catching.” - Jack
