I would really like feedback on my first two bespoke items. I am a pretty conservative guy (I eat dinner in a suit about twice a week at a club) and work in finance where I regularly interact with clients, and wear a suit almost every day. The WW Chan I got in one fitting in New York. It is 11oz Holland and Sherry Cape Horn Vista. It is extremely comfortable and fits me much better than suit I have ever worn. The pants are obviously too long, but that's an easy fix. I...
No experience with those specifically but most of my bespoke shirts are Alumo and they are the best cottons I have ever had.
Chan told me the serial number for the cloth and I have an email in with H&S. I suppose its possible they wrote it down wrong at the fitting because I was looking at a number of cloths, or I had some kind of brain cramp. Is twill less formal? I am not a fan of it on shirts because it is on so many cotton pants that you can easily turn into Twillman.

I received a pretty hefty charcoal Holland and Sherry with a TWILL weave. What I ordered was called Holland and Sherry Cape Horn Vista. Also...
I went to one of the boarding schools already mentioned and plan to send my kids their.

People in 30 years wlil look at an Abercrombie catalog and say "What the fuck?" (those who don't already have that reaction to A&F) - but most people don't dress as the models in catalogs do. And even if most men in the 70s did dress that way, as awful as those outfits...
