Looks ugly.
How do you know she doesn't like the money? Flew first class?
Am aware that straight extended shoulders aren't exactly beloved by the forum since Manton wrote about the forum's preference for shoulders sans padding here. Though, like I said, I have nearly straight shoulders, so not much I can do about that.I think that the shoulders in that first pic at the other thread looks good, however. Worked with that heavy cloth.Straight extended shoulders with padding are more common (if not the norm) here, especially so in a convervative...
Frankly, I don't think I see it as being as much of a problem as Foo does. The fact I never noticed it is telling, but I like to know why certain things are done, so I'll just strike a conversation with my tailor. On a more substantive note, I had my subsequent coats lengthened a fraction, plus made with slightly wider lapels, however.The latter point was difficult. The cutter seemed to think that wide lapels would swallow my frame up, and he preferred more balance.Good...
It's not just the hand-stitching. It's the expertise you're paying for, the fact that the coat might fit better than another, and might have a more elegant shape etc.
Yes. Tailors have fabrics books from which you can select the tweeds that suit your fancy. They usually books from the reputable merchants including: W Bill, Holland & Sherry's Sherry Tweed, Harrison's etc. They might have a couple of books from less well known merchants/mills too.
I hunted all around for Cappelli for a long time and couldn't seem to find it. I found my way from the back, near the OLD Rubinacci store before they moved to the castle like place. Poorsod is right that the texture is nice but the colour isn't that versatile. I'd swap it for smth else.
Check out the latest 15 pages. Mostly Liverano and their Italian stuff. A couple of Chans, but these days, on their blog, their Italian suits dominate. They probably still wear Chan, but if the pictures on their blog are anything to go by, it seems they wear less of Chan than their Italian stuff. But who knows. http://thearmoury.tumblr.com/
Connock and Lockie has a more refined pedigree and, from what I've heard, cuts the better suit. Sims & MacDonald is a notch lower quality. Prices are reflective of this. If you're new to the world of bespoke, you're not likely going to be able to tell the difference.
