Will try at some point. More likely just the sportcoat.
So I fiiiinnnnnalllly got my finished suit in this fabric recently. Turned out great! Light enough for a casual Summer sportcoat and the color works well for a nice Fall suit. It's a winner!
Bordeaux very good as well, but just needs sooooo much time. I can drink Village Burgundy and Rhones like St. Joseph and Crozes Hermitage young. Bordeaux just needs so much time for me that I hardly ever touch it before 25 years.
2010 is THE recent vintage to buy from Burgundy and Rhone.
Anyone have 4 meters of light gray Fresco fabric around 11oz from something like Minnis or Fimmeresco? Thanks in advance and no worries either way.
Thanks guys! And how about someone able to make a bespoke vest with a turnaround time of 3 weeks including a fitting? Ercole's? Anyone else?
Anyone know of any good alterations tailors in Brooklyn? Preferably Park Slope? A friend is asking. Thanks!
I think the lacing looks fine there. My Vass boots go almost all the way up the top. As long as they are comfortable all is good! Wear them well.
For hot weather, nothing beats linen.
You mean in terms of fabrics being interchangeable? Many fabrics can be used for both suiting and jacketing as far as material goes. Some things - such as Shetlands or loose open weave tweeds - are not ideal for suiting as the trousers can start to sag and look after a while. I am going by hearsay, but that seems to make sense. Of course, many fabrics just "look" like they should be either for a jacket or a suit.
