Would also be nice to see sleeve lengths on the shirts Great stuff as always
Noticed that you have been asking around re this book for a while now I had my first bespoke suit made from this book (Navy birdseye). I am quite happy with it. Without knowing too much about other options I would say it feels like quite a sturdy cloth (12/13 oz IIRC). I was guided to the cloth by my tailor when I asked for a navy suit with texture. If you have other questions I can strive to answer them. No pics unfortunately.
Apparently it is advisable to own a tux for my MBA program as there are a number of formal dinners etc. How much should I expect to pay for an entry-level rig (suit + shirt etc) and where can I get it? Thanks in advance KJ
I am EXACTLY in the same boat as you with H&H as my staple but as they dont make slim fit button cuff shirts I have been looking elsewhere I visited Erlend at Stephen Shirts and have ordered one shirt. I can let you know when I get it back (which should be in 2 weeks). Biggest disappointment was the limited fabric selection but will hold off judgement on the quality and fit until I receive the shirt

Ah found it, thanks! Looks almost exactly like what I am looking for The Unfunded Liabilities thread is a goldmine!
Thanks for the recommendation on Evolution. Some nice blues in the book (I have a suit in a similar birdseye) Whats the verdict on Mohair? All I know is that it travels well but can be too shiny for some.
Yachtie - I saw your Moonbeam DB on LL. Very handsome. I dont want this jacket exclusively for the summer. More like something that can be my go-to jacket year-round but not interested in a heavy tweed just yet. PSguy - Could you mention which cloth you are looking at? I looked at an option in herringbone and it was intriguing RogerC - Fresco is another option I am looking at. Haven't seen any examples of it made up though. Got any to share? Scruff - That looks...
Zac, I am making it in London before I leave Thanks to the others - any recommendations of fabrics like you mention?
I am considering making up an unlined/half-lined 3r2, 2 patch pockets, SB sportcoat This will be my workhorse coat and I would like to wear it with light grey/charcoal/brown/white trousers and perhaps with dark denim as well. I am going to be in Boston for 2yrs and want something for warmer evenings (i dont expect it to keep me cozy at thanksgiving). Would love to hear recommendations for fabric. I want to avoid navy blue because it is a bit boring in my view....
