What about a US 52 coat? Following flussers advice about "the larger the man, the larger the pattern", I want to get a large windowpane or glen plaid or evebn POW pattern. As I get my stuff from a Hong Kong tailor, I wanted to see more of the cloth than just a swatch, as well as time to fuss over the pattern. How much cloth should I bring with me for a two piece and two trousers?
i dont know what the answer is to this, but just wanted to point out that with a check or plaid, you will have to factor in pattern matching. the numbers given above (certainly in my posts) are based on plain cloth or pin stripes, where you get less issues with matching patterns, but the horizontals on your suit will likely blow the numbers out. How much - I have no idea - but do take this into account with whatever quote you get. Matt
