    It may appear but it isn't. Not one piece either.

    Got it.

    There is a double loop on each shoulder; one at the arm edge and one at the neck through which the tie, which buttoned close, could be worn. It was to take the upper portion of the belted plaid so negating the need for a pin and thus damage to the jacket and plaid.

    So is that a lining, then? Because the tartan showing from the backpiece of the jacket (just under where the front tapers away) doesn't just "appear" to be straight cut. The lines showing are definitely horizontal and vertical.

    It must be the picture. I guess it would fit a 36-38 which would have been a reasonable Medium back then. Ref the buttons - see para 2 of #4.

    Yep, and the inside but that's not the point of the question. There's one very obvious feature.

    What you're seeing is the inside of the tail section which has been lined/backed with tartan square cut whereas the outsite is definitely on the bias. The only lined section are the sleeves.

    Yes but no but......

    The straight lining only covers were the inside of the tail section in order to cover the tailoring.

    Any chance you might have a close-up/"detail" photo, of the left shoulder, showing details of the loops and tie ) and buttoning)? I'd like to try that, on a jacket I have planned. I think this would also be useful for wearing a "Day Plaid"
