Hi Gents,   Thanks for the insights.  I do prefer flannel or tweed in the winder as they seem warmer than worsted.   I think I want at least 20 ounce weight.  I actually read about the old school 'gamekeeper' trousers that apparently were 24 ounce weight.  It makes me think of folks walking on the Scottish moors in the winter.     I am certainly willing to consider MTM for good stuff.  I hope it wouldnt cost over say $400-500.
Hi Gents,   I have a couple 14 ounce trousers which are warm enough to and back from work when its cold.   But I want to find some heavier ones - say 18 ounce+ - to wear when I am out in the cold for a while.  For example I will be in London next week and will take a 3 hour outdoor walking tour.  Heavy trousers seem might appropriate in this case.   Any suggestions where I can get heavier wool trousers - preferably in a modern cut?  I dont want to look like I should...

Very true.Pierre is a wonderful craftsman. Over the last couple of years I have used him and am very pleased. Great attention to detail and loves his work.He hardly knows how to use the internet so he couldn't really be posting here. An old world craftsman. Not a fancy shop and a bit messy there but he has done right by me every time. You can learn a lot by chatting with him and asking questions.Honestly the Paul Stuart suit altered by him looks better than both $1500...
Hi Gents, Carson Street Clothiers in NYC is having a 20% off this weekend on Eidos MTM. I think Eidos is good quality but wonder how good their MTM will be at a 3rd party store? Any thoughts? Do they know how to get the measurements and changes done well? Stuff like rotating a jacket shoulder? Thanks
