Pulled the trigger on my first shirt (sky blue oxford) and trousers (270-300g khaki twill). Also ordered a bunch of swatches and look forward to reporting back to this thread with observations. Has anyone sent a canvassed sportcoat or suit jacket in to be replicated? I'm considering sending a bespoke jacket to get duped out for a variety of tweed, corduroy, and linen sportcoats. The value proposition is highly intriguing. I'm just a little curious about what level of...
\Asked my wife to surprise me with something from NMWA, she picked up a Drake's scarf and was quite taken by the customer service. Said if she could find any shop that offered next day delivery and a personalized note, she would do all her shopping from there.

Is there a way to search threads by keyword? I know it was a function in an earlier version of SF. Very helpful in navigating threads with 1000+ posts.

I just glanced at the Acorn website and saw the following 2 fabrics:Grange 100/2 - GBP GBP 9.21/meter (~$45 for a 3m shirt length)Grasmere 160/2 - GBP 15.39/meter (~$75 for a 3m shirt length)Adding those prices to...
Would be great if you guys offered more "name brand" fabrics for shirts (Thomas Mason, Alumo, Grandi & Rubinelli) and trousers (Holland & Sherry, Scabal, Harrisons, Smith Woollens).
