Thanks for the heads up.
If you're not experienced, I would get a cheaper RTW suit from Brooks Brothers.Spoon tailor and Andreas Gorges are two local tailors who do Bespoke in San Francisco for around that price.
I think that if you buy something at BB when it's 25%+ off (get some discounted gift cards and pay with that as well), you can't really go wrong on value. I would check it out in person and see if you like how it fits.
So I should wash the stack of fabric I got from Acorn before I give it to my tailor?
Maybe you should evaluate the price based on the actual quality of the blazer rather than where it's made.
Also, here's a good looking Grasmere (160s) on clearance:http://www.acornfabrics.com/fabrics/grasmere-gx-blue
Does anyone have a SA they can recommend who is comfortable fulfilling orders by email? Thanks.
Acorn fabric is having a 20% off everything sale this month. Must spend 100 pounds before discount. http://us5.campaign-archive2.com/?u=5ff5da210030d54c7cb42d175&id=75e61445cd&e=62341c8bc1
There was for me, as I'm new to the process of buying fabric. If I'm doing this right, I would be paying $240 plus shipping & duty for 2 meters of fabric for a jacket. My tailor will do a CMT jacket for $700 while he quoted me $1,400 for a jacket using the fabric I'm buying. He buys fabric through Isles Textiles so maybe they're making a big profit on resale.edit: Called Isles Textiles and they quoted me $150 per yard for fabrics in the Steadfast book.
For anyone that is interested, I called Smith's Woolens today and they do in fact sell to individuals. The man I spoke to, David, quoted me a price of 80 pounds (ex-VAT) per meter for a navy hopsack in the Steadfast line. The best way to communicate with them is via email at sales@smithwoollens.co.uk.
