^ +1. But I have a blazersuit in the 0511 Minnis fresco, and I love it. Not too dark, not too light. Goes almost anywhere.
Haven't read thru the whole thread, so I might be repeating others' recommendations, but come on out to Brooklyn! In no particular order: Frannys Giuseppinas Best Pizza And in the East Village: Motorino
This might be too late for you, but: Ottolenghi in Islington - amazing mediterranean tapas food. Holly Bush pub in Hampstead - used to be the best pub and best pub food in London. Still a great pub, but I've heard the food has gone downhill. Caravan in King's Cross - great scene and great food The Albion pub in Islington - also a great pub, and the food is still great Borough Market - Friday lunchtime (and maybe Thursday), this is a HUGE food market near London...
I don't know who your tailor is, but one of your sleeves is missing.
Skittles!
Minnis Fresco 0511. All day long and twice on Sunday. My vote for most versatile fabric/color out there.
It definitely wears warmer than its weight. I wear it end of autumn thru early spring. I think it drapes well, but it is a soft fabric. It is no tweed. That said, my jacket is beautiful and holds its tailoring and has been wearing very well.
^^^ I agree. The haberdasher street shop is worth a visit, but frankly, not as many great bargains as I hoped. But I've found two cashmere sweaters there and a few ties. My biggest complaint with the factory store--and I've given them an earful twice now--is that they don't do VAT refunds, while the main shop in the West End does. Sort of kills the deal compared to the main shop.
Wow. Gorgeous. Me too...if you find out what it is or find a source, I'd be in for at least 3 meters.
I have a sportcoat made up in Mirage. I'm on a mobile device right now and can't find the post to link to, but search in this thread and the Ercoles thread and you should find it. I put up a pic or two. I really like it, and Frank at Ercoles is a big fan. Seems to tailed really well and so far it wears great. Gotten a lot of compliments on it.
