I've held to solids on the the bespoke items so far and will add some patterns once I feel like I've got a good base to work with.I do like the idea of having a stroller at some point. Are you going to wear the stroller during the work week or just for weddings, Easter and such?RobRob
Better yet. Have one made.Rob
I find the mid-weights pretty versatile. I only have a short walk from house to garage and parking lot to office. Once there, it's comfortable. I might lean to adding some summer weight/fabrics since the muggy midwest summers are the thing I dread most. If I after time, I have 20 suite, perhaps half mid-weight, and the rest split between winter and summer weights. Thanks.
I have been dumping my RTW and converting to bespoke over the past year or so , so the ten suit wardrobe has been on my mind.

I think it's great in name.
I haven't reviewed all of the posts, so this may re-hash others who have stated it better but here it goes anyway: 1. Don't just buy things, build a wardrobe. Find our what you want or need for work, weekends evenings. Ask yourself, where are you going and are you dressed appropriately. Off to Piti? stock up on your double-monk straps, scarves and floppy hats. Going to argue in the Supreme Court? Load up on formal day dress. First day at Big Law? See the first 10...
I wouldn't go to my tailor if it was just a business transaction. I would hope that given all the time we spend on clothing, it would be more than a mere exchange of money for goods. Rob
