^examples please? In dollars, huntsman is priced significantly higher than Cifo. It isn't close. And neither charge as much for trousers as Ambrosi through the armoury in New York. So I'm not sure where you get your info but would love to hear examples.
Giant thread drift going on above but an interesting one. Sartodinapoli lacks nuance, and he isn't right, but there is a hint of truth to what he says. I've been a customer on the row for 10 years now with various houses and I would describe the work as...uneven. You can get some great stuff, but you can some garbage. Some houses stand behind their work and redo it until it's right, but others don't. Furthermore, it's incestuous. I left kilgour to get away from a cutter...
Darren Beaman?????? I can only advise that one use extreme caution before making an order and sending any money his way. And if you do, please ask him if he can send either my suit or my deposit back when he sends you the cloth. Its been about 10 or 11 years. It would be nice to have one or the other by now.
Thanks all. I'm going to try a 9 ounce wool from dormeuil to see how it does. If it's still too warm for summer I will get wear out of it anyway I suppose.
Yes, that of course is an option and I know it well. but I'm asking about pure wool, non fresco. Lightweight for New York City in the summer, particularly 7, 8, 9 ounces. I think Dopey's sufficiently answered the question though.
An eidos blend?
^ It is totally unhelpful because I'm asking about bespeaking a suit in a summer weight fabric for New York City. All of those suits are 11/12 ounce wool ready to wear suits. no one would dream of bespeaking an 11/12 ounce wool suit for that purpose. It would be absurd. and half of the suits in that thread are lined.
How is the unknown tropical wool, Dopey? Does it hold its shape and wear ok?
^ thanks much. That is what I was afraid on with the wool.
^ thanks, but again totally missing the point. I'm not looking for what people have tolerated in off the rack suits of various weights. I'm looking for advice from people that have specifically commissioned a 100% wool, unlined suit specifically for summer wear in NYC or something like it (the difference being that, with the bespoke commission, all other options are at your finger tips and presumably that the bespeaker has some experience with this sort of thing). ...
