If you're not sure about the various type of suit canvas then these two blog posts may be worth a read Fused Canvas v Full Canvas A Full Canvas Makes a Better Suit If you want a more unbiased opinion read any of THESE ARTICLES. They all say basically the same thing A full canvas makes a better suit The only reason you would buy an inferior half canvas or fused suit is price so my question is if you can buy a fully tailored full canvas suit for the same price, or in many...
Well Riva's suits suits are all organised. We've arranged to import the fabric and will be using a genuine Japanese bemberg lining and horn buttons for both suits   High quality fabrics and trimming on a hand made full canvas suit for only $549. When you see what others are charging for their factory made fused canvas (or if you're very lucky half canvas) suits that looks like great value to me   anyone else?
Yes it is available We have relationships with fabric merchants all over the world. If you find a fabric you like let me know and I will see if we can find something similar
there is a similar fabric in a charcoal. It's a lightweight 8oz all wool cloth    I'd have to check availability
 I think you may be right, I think the description to the 638 actually belongs to the 639 which isn't there. I'll see if I can sort it out later today. I'll also have a look for some checks
I did some quick scans and put the range HERE You can order the standard suit or the full canvas version. If you buy two suits in the same order I'll upgrade you with the Japanese Bemberg lining and horn buttons for both suits at no extra charge
Received the first samples of the new summer suiting fabric range to be launched in July. They are a little more expensive but certainly even better quality than the current fabrics. Most excitingly for me, finally some great looking mid priced windowpanes     I love windowpane suits and there is a couple each in blue, black and grey. Don't know if I will pick just one or get one in each colour.   Pricings not finalised just yet but somewhere around $400 for the...
Tailoring in Asia can be inexpensive.However, many people think they can pop over to Asia and pick up quality suits for next to nothing, Sure, you can go to the markets and bargain to get a suit made for, in many cases, around $100 but what you end up with is a cheap mass produced fused suit in a dubious polyester fabric (no matter what they may have shown you in the store) that will start to fall apart from the first time you wear it. Good tailoring cost money no matter...
Perhaps a little. A suit jacket should just cover your backside. We suggest that the jacket should end level with your knuckles when your hand is resting by your side.   That said, there is a trend today to shorter jackets
Just updated the Huddersfield Cloth specials with a new range of fabrics.   These are beautiful fabrics and all the basic colours are there. Black, Charcoal, Grey, Navy and Blue.   There are even some beautiful Mohairs and even some s150's merino wool and cashmere blends   There is no doubt these English made fabrics are world class suiting cloths. We will import the cloth from the UK and have the suit made by one of our specialist bespoke tailors who will make your...
