My concern with the standard camel fabric is that when it sheds the fibers are visible particularly against a dark color sport coat &/or suiting. Has anyone else observed this?

Love the balance of the coat, its pocket shape and choice of tie fabric & color, but the trouser seems to disrupt the summery tone of the other articles; perhaps a linen, cotton or porous worsted trouser fabric may have been more suitable

Yesterday, I spoke with Mr Labani about the scheduled grand opening of their NYC boutique in the Fall. A lot of conjecture with respect to the flexibility of their custom operation; I assumed their emphasis was MTM & not bespoke yet I'm sure this is possible; he mentioned they've relocated two Neapolitan tailors to NY for alterations etc. Anyway, a sportcoat in a basic fabric is 4900US and higher. Funny, he referred to LH as a retailer not a true atelier as he described...
Concordia, did he mention whether he'll increase U.S. visits or atleast become more consistent with the current schedule? It may be to early at this stage of your garment, but any assesments to share with us?

^Everytime I see this guy I think how utterly ridiculous. Is he just trying too hard or is he simply clueless
Who gives a frig?! I randomly cruise boutiques & tailor firms all the time; granted my revisits aren't as frequent
