Thanks for the input. I am pretty sure I saw a Caccioppoli book at my last NSM visit. As for a bespoke cotton suit, I haven't found anything that fits off the rack, I'm BSAS (broad-shouldered and short.) And I like the worn-in look a cotton suit gets over time. This wouldn't be for business, or daily wear.
Can anyone recommend a good source of fabric for a cotton suit? Preferably one carried by NSM. Looking for brown cotton suiting material.
It's fine as a business suit. I prefer pick and pick to birdseye but that's just me.
I either keep my jacket on, or exchange it for a lab coat. All my suits are cut for suspenders, and my co-workers think I'm overdressed as it is without waving suspenders in their faces.
Voxsartoria posted about doing this a while back.
This Vanda tie is pretty sweet:
I was going to ask the same thing. The fabric is great.
Most cufflinks I see are a bit flashy for me. I guess that's the point of novelty cufflinks but I wouldn't wear those personally. My one pair of cufflinks (aside from the set for my tuxedo) is a sedate pair from Turnbull & Asser. It's really the only pair I need or want.
At this price point, I am partial to the Nomos Orion: http://www.nomos-store.com/en/Watches/Orion/Watches-with-manual-winding/Orion-stainless-steel-back.html
You can do this but there are so many other better options. -The jacket will look like an orphaned suit jacket. -A brown or cream sportscoat will look better with navy trousers. -This look will look much better inverted (navy sportscoat, light grey trousers.)
