Sorry for the bump, just catching up on this thread...the fabric also shrinks like crazy under ironing. At first fitting with Steed mine was way too small, even though it was cut off the same pattern as my other stuff.
@jfrater nice collection. My main piece of advice is to consider investing in pairs of shoes. Having just the left or it's the right isn't that useful.
The Camoshita blazers are really fantastic, especially the gauzy ones. The hand on them is superb, but difficult to convey in photos.The other brand that I think has been slept on is Bonastre. The pieces aren't really seasonal, so the discount on them when they go on sale isn't huge, but the feel of the leather is really spectacular. Start out with the portfolio and you'll see what I mean. I saw Fernando at Pitti and the whole line is very nice IMHO.
Greg discussed this a few pages back; the sold out sizes remain so that it's easy to request a back-in-stock notification.
But the bad website can be fixed. I'm reminded of an exchange (perhaps apocryphal) between Churchill and Lady Astor...http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/my-dear-you-are-ugly-but-tomorrow-i-shall-be-sober-and-you-will-still-be-ugly-winston-churchill-tops-poll-of-historys-funniest-insults-8878622.html
My length of the inky blue GMTO on the Formosa cutting table:
You're in SoCal, right? I know places in both LA and SD that should be up to the job. Send me a PM.
For me personally, it wouldn't bother me in the slightest to have the buttons just sewn on. If it's good enough for the DoW, it's good enough for me. Most of my jackets have working buttonholes bc they're bespoke and they just come standard, but if it cost extra, I don't think I would do it.
If you're very confident in where the sleeves need to be hemmed to, I think you can get Formosa to do your holes for you (hush) on your next MTO.
If you want them done by hand in NYC, it's hard to find and crazy expensive iirc
