New bespoke suit...

post #1 of 131
Thread Starter 
Okay, so... that time has come again where I'm considering a suit. Once again, it'll be from Baron Boutique. Basically I'm getting a navy two button suit with a waistcoat, but it needs to stand well on its own being a two-piece suit. Here's the style guide from the website. I've talked about the other options specified below with Raj Bista over email before. Jacket: Single breasted, 2 button normal fastening, AL-2 lining, regular buttons, double vent, type-1 piped pocket, upper welted pocket, ticket pocket, rounded bottom, notch lapel, lapel hole, rolled lapels, 4 button working sleeve, natural shoulder Trouser: Zip closure with no button tab, no pleat, 1/8 top pocket, one back pocket, plain waistband with side adjuster buckles, knee lining, no cuff Vest: Vest-3 Note that AL-2 is the number of an aqua blue acetate lining swatch he sent me. I'm also getting a more suppressed waist, higher armholes, and narrow lapels at 2.5-2.75". Anything you'd do differently, let me know. I'm 6'1, slender, and have a light complexion.

Anytime pal... are you going to get the word "Pimp" embroidered on your lapel? 'Cause I think that would be real classy...

How's their workmanship? Do they do hand-stitching?

Has or is the tailor going to measure you or are you planning on taking your own measurements and then sending them to him?

MilanoStyle: Workmanship is good. With floating canvas it is definitely the real thing and is hand stitched to the lapels. Shoulderpads are quality. Buttonholes are noticeably hand done. I've ordered from them before and found their workmanship overall pretty well done. They do some other little features like chest pleats in the jacket, five inner pockets, trouser hem has kick tape and the waistband a hidden change pocket. With the floating canvas spec horn buttons are standard, which was nice. Even the vest had canvassing. odoreater: They already have my measurements on file which were done by someone I know and sent to them. They're based in Nepal, so getting them done by the tailor would be nice, but next to impossible for me.

What do you mean by chest pleats?

Those horizontal pleats inside the chest lining.
