hmm.....interesting....one vote for the fabric, one vote against. Im neutral on it, which doesnt help, but I may just be a slave to availability instead. And since I want to do this as cheaply as humanly possible (since it is only a test run), well then maybe I will just use the cheapest stuff I can find with a decent hand. I should be able to find something around $10 a meter (Chinese to be sure) but that feels ok and drapes ok, and make it up in this shape. If he does well, then ill march back in there with something nicer. I like the very high gorge that chorse doesnt approve of. The jacket also looks slightly shorter than normal - or is that more just the angle of the photo? The flared pants - admit I hadnt spotted, thanks. Will tell him to ignore that and make a more normal leg. Not much chance of another picture, its an ad from British GQ from Sept last year. I cant very well call Canali and say "hi its Matt, can you emails me more pics of that one, I have a forty buck guy I want to use to make knock offs"
