Not quite so well-finished as, say, Lessers, but the general reputation with tailors is good.
Personally, I am in the process of going long some shirts at Charvet.
What is the length, and are you considering offering 2 lengths?
What, no Sovereigns?
The big advantages of ETFs are that you can trade them intra-day, the fund sponsor can't prevent you from buying for the short term (as Vanguard will do if you're a threat to park many millions in their index funds), and you're unlikely to get hit with realized gain distributions if everyone else liquidates their shares. None of which seem relevant to your situation.Indexed mutual funds will often have lower expenses than ETFs. You also don't have transaction cost...
If you had a certain Italian tailor, you'd understand all.
I appreciate the tradition of using tweed here, and I'm not ruling out getting one down the line (or maybe in covert cloth). Still, I'm currently replacing a Schneider charcoal cashmere coat that had pretty much the same styling and worked very well. The question is if I were to move a little away from the previous coat, are there problems I should look for (or solutions to welcome)?
I'm thinking about getting a balmacaan (SB overcoat, shirt-type collar) for next winter. There are lots of practical things to do in that department, but I;m thinking about something nice and soft for going out in the evening without necessarily looking over-dressed. Has anyone here had experience with the Harrisons navy camel hair coating? Or on a more practical level, has anyone found a useful source of loden cloth?
Lining down to the knees should help some of this.
I have one in beige linen that hasn't yet seen a ton of wear. It's a little too dark to be a summer dinner jacket, but otherwise I should be able to dress it up or down.
