So I'm looking to get a cotton suit made, and have no experience with purchasing fabric. All I know is that I want it to be lightweight and breathable to handle the heat and humidity of summer, and in a light khaki/cream color. Several questions: - any particular type of cotton to look for? - standard at any fabric store or should look at specialized ones or online? - how much is needed for one full suit? Looking around online, fabric 9280 at the bottom right seems to be...
Though overall I think the fit is pretty good, I have two nitpicks: - quarters are too closed - both jacket and shirt sleeves are way too long, I side with the Sartorialist on this issue

Try the GS Graduate School, I know they have some and it's relatively cheap for a credited course
I'm curious as to what SFers think about the no break trousers… I like them shorter than most, barely touching the shoe at the back, but dislike the Thom Browne-esque extreme.

I recently realized, though in hindsight it seems patently obvious, why some wider lapeled jackets, all else constant, look very appealing and others horrible to my eyes. As the pics below show, the difference is how high the lapel rides up to. In the top pic, the widest part of the label is roughly in line with the shoulders and the shirt collar, while it reaches considerably lower in the bottom pic. Any name for this, and are they endemic to any particular style?
According to my tailor and to Jason from TaT it's the black line.
