hi all..thinking to commission a dinner jacket and trousers.any suggestions or help on fabric and details much appreciated! i want something towards to heavier side, but something i can still wear comfortably indoors (autumn, winter). it will be my first bespoke dinner jacket and trousers, i want to wear for special occasions (have 3-4 black tie events in london over the year), weddings (if i ever get married, etc).
i was thinking to get h. lesser black barathea 13oz. i have a charcoal suit in lesser 13oz and its a comfortable enough weight for me. seems quite black and has some detail (nail head or similar detail). fabric is 31260
any other fabric suggestions?
as far as details i was thinking gross grain, single breasted, peak lapel. as far as vents what are the opinions here? i think no vents more traditional/more formal..but some feel black tie is not that formal. same for pockets, etc?..
any other help on details appreciated..
also, i'm relatively short (5'7, 145 pounds) so want something relatively simple
below is a picture patrick had of a peak lapel dj, of course i can change details ..
