Thoughts on matching trousers in inky blue to make a super casual summer blazersuit? Would the fabric be durable enough?
I'll be there, hopefully Friday evening but probably Saturday.
Of the solids, any guidance on which might be durable enough to make matching trousers?
Is the steel mist similar to the ironwood from last year?
Mike, Wasn't the odd sizing for the sport trainers reflected in the euro->us conversion? E.g. For those you sold 42.5s as us10. Just want to make sure keeping the same us size (up 0.5 in euro) is correct. Thanks
Dropped off my fox flannel Formosa at the tailor after work tonight. Spotted at least two other NMWA hangers. To be expected?
My fox flannel is definitely 3r2, not 2.5.
Mine is 1/4 lined; it doesn't really wear heavy but it seems tightly woven in the sense of not letting the breeze through.
I have the lighter blue windowpane (in the background of the photo of 28429 I believe) made up by Ercole's. It is definitely darker than the picture, and I generally agree with other comments that the cloth is soft and a bit thicker than I might have expected. It has a very slightly fuzzy texture and just a bit of a sheen. The herringbone in the photos is pretty true.
I have used Ned in the past but now prefer MTM from Ercole's which is a bit pricier than Ned but IMO both a better experience and a better final product. Best to email for pricing - I think I remember hearing e.g. that prices can be different based on whether you go out to them in Brooklyn or to the midtown shop.Edit: even bespoke from Ercole would most likely run below your $3k figure. From what I have surmised, the same is very much not true of the few well-regarded...
