* Taper your jacket sleeves, too, when going bespoke - So many posters on SF show up with very expensive suits and jackets with perfectly fitted shoulders, torso's and pants but jackets where the tailor attached a 'standard' ill fitting sleeves.Especially the circumference of the cuff opening. The same applies to bespoke shirts. Ill fitting sleeves are the telltale sign of RTW, so don't make your bespoke suit look like it * Jacket length - err on side of a little short...
these group buys would be a lot easier for the cloth companies if there was only one or two options for length, rather than 20 or 30 random individual lengths 5 yards for suits, 3 yards for jackets and the cost of the extra cloth is the tarriff we incur for participating and making it easy for them to cut one standard size the other thing we could do as buyers is have the sections mailed in one shipment to the main organizer, who then parcels out the individual sections...
Thanks guys, but the Dugdale is brown and cream as opposed to brown and black Dugdale swatch: I'm hoping for something darker, like this: 1 Dugdale's is more like this:
can anyone recommend a fabric book where I can find a worsted version of a brown houndstooth (heavier weight) like the one in the picture?
^ dopey....what fabric supplier has the cream w/ brown graph for shirting, if you may recall? I'd love one like that made
p.s. nice example of barleycorn jacket on Caccioppoli's tumblr: http://caccioppoli1920.tumblr.com/post/42580895545/lnsee-orazio-luciano-x-caccioppoli-tweed-lots
^Trini, took it off Wellwornwell.tumblr which is one of you guy's (yours?) would love to see the entire jacket if it's yours
made the decision to go with the pea coat, it will get the most use...and will post pics when it's completed. This picture helped convince me
Quick question since we have so many pictures of the LL herringbone tweed put up hereI have 2.5 metres of it and was going to have a pea coat made, but when I saw this car coat picture (spolier pic #1), thought that the herringbone might best be used for it instead, with a brown Donegal replacing it for the pea coatI live in northern CA (SF) so longer coats are too warm. I'm leaning toward the car coat as seen in the first picture and then getting a Marling & Evans Donegal...
Gianni, You should offer more 'conservative' ties like these for those of us who dress down for work, and post them on your web site. Also, when are you going to offer pocket squares? These are beautiful...and extremely soporific. Bella! Bella!
