I have lost some weight since the jackets were made. The trousers for the suit, do need to be taken in; however, looking to get brace buttons added and a matching waistcoat made. The first time I went to Cad & The Dandy, it was at their Castle Court location where I also met Jon; the following two visits where at Chittleborough & Morgan on Savile Row. Not the best pics, should have taken them without sweater - will take some pics without a sweater for the suit...
Jon did cut my suit; however, I am not sure about the tweed jacket as it is a mtm product
They have quoted me 8 weeks for two pairs of trousers - they did mention they normally require 4 weeks but at the moment 8 weeks would be more realistic.
No, you are confusing lining with canvas - http://www.styleforum.net/t/269171/canvas-and-suit-construction, read the first post. http://www.cadandthedandy.co.uk/tailored-suits - this explains the different C&TD options Go and speak with Cad & The Dandy, you can see garments they have made for other customers; do the same with Tweed Addict. We cannot make your mind up, we can advise you of the options and help guide you; however, the final decision should be yours.
Cad & The Dandy tweed jacket, MTM, Half hand-stitched*, Full-canvass, Jonhston of Elgin cloth 20/21oz *Half hand-stiched is normally a half-canvas garment; however, because I also purchased a suit at the time, they upgraded it to full-canvass
Go see cad and dandy &see who you prefer. I can post some pics of my tweed jacket from them if you like
I cannot comment on Tweed Addict; however, if you are looking at other options, I can recommend Cad & The Dandy - they have made me a tweed jacket in a heavy Johnston of Elgin cloth.
As far as I know, Sims only offer bespoke; and machine-stitiching is not a bad thing - do not confuse bespoke with hand stitching Keep the process simple, do not source your own tweed. Both will have access to a lot of tweed cloths, unless you want something unique. You need to decide if you want to pay £800 more for hand-stitching. From your post, it seems you should go with Sims; however, it would be helpful to know your suit experience.
with 3 suits, I would budget more for tailoring costs
I wish I had checked SF earlier (been away), would have attended. Hopefully, it is a great success and you have another pop-up latter in the year.
