Jerrybrowne is having Templeman make him a pair of Dovers. Or you could just ask him directly. http://www.styleforum.net/u/232428/ntempleman
I met Gianni and Marta in Milan last year and they seemed quite reasonable. I paid cash up front. Got my ties 2-3 months later. No hitch. You do have to see the swatches in person because I don't think everything he carries is vintage. Most of life is not black and white, there is lots of gray.I think people have to realize the Internet magnifies ideas, both the good and the bad. That's why you see some things being over hyped. That's why people get pilloried on Twitter...
The wig? Only at Versailles otherwise it is déclassé.
I recall that the context for this suit is that this LL member is a music teacher (?piano) and he uses this suit when he teaches. The design is based on an old vintage coat and vest but I can't seem to find the thread where the details are discussed. The suit looks vintage because it is supposed to be. As a uniform/costume for his profession, I think it is not an unreasonable choice.
I have a suit length of cream dupioni from Il Vecchio Drappiere waiting to be made up. Do I need a yacht before getting the suit? Unfortunately I get seasick, so no yacht will ever be likely.

Thanks! I think I might want silk shirts one day.
How did you get swatches from Bennett silk? Their website says they only sell to the trade. So that scared me off.
Since you are in Berlin, have you asked the guys from Shibumi? I believe, on SF they are Sander and Braddock. http://www.keikari.com/english/interview-with-niels-holdorf-and-benedikt-fries-from-shibumi/ Maybe they know tailors at visit Berlin.
Yes. I am talking about bespoke. Thighs are too lean on me. Maybe I have thick thighs.
