Yes, your cutter is the expert not you, take his advice and respect him for it.
Absolutely correct. Novices should just stop thinking they are clever by purchasing cloth for CMT to save a few $, they pay too much for expensive cloth or are sold bits of rag and then try to beat the tailor down to meet a limited budget which is crazy because decent tailors do not need to give their time and expertise away for nothing - they are not charities as some seem to think them. The skill rests entirely with your cutter and his staff but there is no skill...

So true, in fact it is little more than a folly to wear tennis shoes as a fashion statement and then complain of cold feet.

Any suit made from junk such as these are is fit only for melting on a fire. You should stick to wool or linen for summer.
"Eight days", this post reads "only for 6-7 days"! Rush jobs ('skiffles' on Saville Row) seldom get the best out of any craftsmen and for a first commission that is fatal, it takes time. If you want 'quick' go to Hong Kong, may will oblige 24 hours time elapsed including bringing the finished garment from Shenzen. but you will get crap.I did not disparage these tailors but that was not the subject of the enquiry: Others may well differ and quite reasonably so, the...
No 'Rules' cover any aspect of men's clothing other than what is called a 'dress code' for certain functions. Wear what you think is best suited for yourself.
