Plus great pattern work by Vass - I've seen some MTOs that just don't work well, but there they have got the proportions spot on.
No. Suit fabric is about as formal as they come whilst the shirt fabric is midway down the casual spectrum even before accounting for the lack of a tie.
Those suede galoshes.... oh wows. Group MTO anyone?
Do you literally mean blazer, i.e. a navy coat with metal buttons? If so, best option is usually some form of serge. LBD Oyster is a good heavyweight. Fox do a couple, but I've not seem them made up.For something with a bit more texture a hopsack can be good - I really like Dugdale 9428 from the Town Classics bunch. Or some 15oz Fresco....
Mine have it, but then I always order 'dress pants style'. Your experience may differ if you order 'jeans style' :-)
I just order with 'measurements and styling as per order [number]'. No 'creep' noticed, just minor variations in how things wear caused by using a variety of materials and weights.
Yes, it's fine. Just that you are paying more for shipping than needed
They're resolutely old school but friendly and happy to send swatches if you ask nicely
It's worth also speaking to HE Box. They specialise in heavier fabrics including coatings, and usually have some interesting stuff. No 'Fox tax' either: http://www.he-box.co.uk/
