So it's one half of a suit, amended in such a way that it doesn't look like one half of a suit...
Yes - two, one in 9446 and one in 9461, both have had a fair amount of use and held up well. It may be my pressing skills but I can't get the trousers to keep a sharp crease, but the fabric seems very robust, doesn't run excessively warm (e.g. I have some Super 120s 10oz that wear subjectively just as warm) and I hope the two suits will be with me for some time to come.Now you have me looking at the swatches again - tempted to go back for 9436 and 9472. It's not the finest...
Throwing my hat into the ring - initial order placed for a couple of shirts (will send one in to duplicate) and some swatches. Here goes...!
Cream Henry Poole suit which may fly under the radar: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gentleman-s-Bespoke-Tailored-1970s-Savile-Row-Lightweight-Suit-Ref-MZY-/351164127566?pt=UK_Collectables_Militaria_LE&hash=item51c303594e&ssPageName=RSS:B:SHOP:GB:101
Amazing deal on NIB Edward Green boots if you have tiny UK5.5 feet: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Edward-Green-Boots-Size-5-5-/201160291785 And a pretty good deal for UK7 EG for RLPL loafers http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ralph-Lauren-Shoes-7-Edward-Green-/271592541449
Yes, that's Chester Barrie (old production - far superior to their current stuff)
I think there were only 2-3 suits, and only one of any particular item. I got a suit, two pairs of bespoke trousers, a cardigan and a handful of pocket squares and a knit tie.Shoes were a bit crazy and I could see very little in my size. I may venture back tomorrow if things are quieter.
I don't think that's the genuine Mackintosh of Scotland - just another maker operating where the latter doesn't have copyright. That, plus the styling and the poly blend...
