I do not see an issue with, especially when you consider some people wear navy blazers all-year-round I have a dark brown sports jacket (quarter lined) that I do wear in the summer (spring and early autumn depending on weather). I can understand why people are against it very dark shades; however, consider if the cloth does not wear 'warm', combined with light coloured trousers (e.g. light grey, sky blue, tan ,etc) and a light shirt. Cloth is very important too, you...
Both not only have sales, but also have outlet shops at Bicester Village. What are you specifically looking for from the brands
It seems you have three things to consider: 1. rtw Scabal altered, 2. Scabal mtm & 3 CATD bespoke The reasons why I mention Scabal rtw are because you liked the suit, you could consider this route and get the suit altered; and taking your deadline into account. The disadvantage being if you can ask something specific outside their rtw styles In terms of the other two, CATD will give you a fitting for the jacket whereas the mtm will be made to finish. The disadvantage...
NAVY SUIT: White shirt - yes Black shoes & belt - yes Black tie - depends, on the pattern and the suit cloth. It can work but it can go completely wrong too Personally with a plain white shirt, I would suggest a patterned navy tie if the suit is plain
I am not talking about Duchamp's styling or dandy status, the question is about their quality. I like Duchamp pocket squares and own many but most of their range (clothing, shirts, ties, etc) is not my taste. The reason why I mentioned the sale prices is because currently Duchamp have a sale, the sale prices can be ignored and we can look at Duchamp at their retail prices.
I do not know if the US Duchamp clothing is the same as the UK; hence, can only comment on garments seen in the UK. The quality is ok, for the same as their UK sale prices you can find the same quality cheaper elsewhere. You should only go for Duchamp if you like their style and if you like style (and cannot find the same style cheaper elsewhere) then go for it.
What suits do you already have? What would you use this suit for, ie: work, social, etc? As mentioned you could go the rtw route and then alter a suit; however, the costs of alterations for not always worth going this route. If you want to consider this route, you can get something in the sales or make a trip to Bicester Village.
If you do not want to wear a white shirt: Lilac Pink You could go for blue, but personally not a fan of light blue shirt with navy/midnight-blue suit Ercu In terms of stripes, you could go for white with most colours (if the stripes are thin) without it looking like a plain white shirt
Time depends on a number of factors:Their general turn-around time? - this can vary depending if the product is mtm or bespoke, and what is outsourced and where it is outsourcedHow busy they are & if any factory they use are closed for holidays?If someone is a new customer? - new customers may need more fittingsWhen you are available for fittings? - if the jacket is ready for a fitting and you are not available, then this can prolong the time8 to 12 weeks is enough time...
I have used them for a number of things and alterations, besides my first visit which was at the their Castle Court location, my visits have been on the Row. I have normally dealt with James, but spoke with Ian for my last order. In terms of time, I have never given them a certain deadline - my last orders (odd trousers) were ready earlier; nor have I had any communication delays. I am due to order two more odd-trousers from by the end of July. Tailors can make...
