Hi, I am planning to have a morning suit made and have found a quantity of an discontinued cloth that I would like to use. The supplier only has 3.5m left. Would this be enough for a three-piece morning suit? I am fairly slim. Many thanks
Hi, Can I ask some advice regarding differentiating fused and floating canvas. A couple of years ago I had a tailcoat made. I am just wondering whether it has a floating canvas. I have done the pinch test and there does appear to be a third layer underneath the bottom button, which is separate from the inside and outside layer. When I look at the buttonhole, there also appears to be a pale middle layer seen within the buttonhole which looks like canvassing (see...

Hi, I would be grateful for some advice from people who have used C&D before. I am intrigued by what they offer and am considering making an appointment. They say that they offer a full bespoke service with individual patterns, multiple fittings and hand padded fully floating canvas. On Wikipedia, a claim is made that the suit is constructed to the standards laid out by the Savile Row Bespoke Association. Has anyone got any personal experience of this service that they...
Hi, I am planning to start a commission for a bespoke dinner suit in the next couple of weeks. I have a good idea of what I want: Single breasted, one button, no vent in midnight blue with grosgrain peak lapels. I would like a matching 'u shaped' waistcoat. I would be interested to know what people think and any advice they may have regarding any extra features. I would also be interested to know what the consensus is regarding buttons, should they be grosgrain covered or...
Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help me. I am trying to find a tunic shirt to wear with a detachable stiff collar. I want one that has white cuffs but a different coloured body. I have tried E&R, T&A and N&L but no luck. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Many thanks.
I am after some advice please. I have noticed that all of my shirts have developed mysterious marks that I am unable to explain (see picture). Initially I thought that they were stains from food. However I have noticed them on the underside of the collar as well, so this does not seem to explain it. I then thought that they were marks from my iron. After a change of iron, they continue to increase. It is not so much of a problem on dark shirts, but they are quite...
I am looking for some advice please. A couple of my shirts, which I have had for a few years, and never had problems with before, have started to wrinkle at the collar (see picture). Is there anything that can be done about this, or is it permenant? Many thanks.
Hi, I am looking for some advice please. I have a new linen waistcoat which I am hoping to wear to Ascot over the next few days. However, it was delivered in the post and is quite creased. Please could you advise on the best way to press this. It has a standard satin type lining and back. Many thanks.
Hi, I would like some advice please. I have an RTW grey three-piece morning suit from Hackett. I chose it because I really liked the shade of grey. Over the last year I have lost some weight (about 3/4 stone) and therefore the suit needs altering a bit, mainly taking the jacket and waistcoat in. My question is this, is it possible to alter tailcoats and still keep the contour of the coat and the same distance between the buttons on the back? Any advice would be greatly...
