Thread Starter 
Pick and create your dream suit, shirt, tie, and shoes.


Let's get cranking...

Suit: Huntsman bespoke, lightweight brown with narrow blue windowpane tweed, three-piece, three-button SB, double-vents, typical Huntsman military cut, hacking pockets with slightly trapezoid flaps, flatfronted trousers with tallish cuffs, no belt, no braces, just adjustable side tabs, and extra plus-fours with pleats. And working buttonholes, even if they don't normally do that. WWII silk escape map used for lining, and backing of waistcoat. Shirt: Hilditch cream broadcloth with slight spread collar, double cuffs, bespoke Tie: Burnt orange silk grenadine Shoes: Lobb Paris heavy mid-brown brogues, bespoke, chisel toe, my initials hidden discreetly in the toe medallion brogueing.

Is that's what's being mimicked in those map-lined leather jackets you get at Wilson's?

Bespoke lacks a lot of the elements makes clothes interesting. Yes one gets a desired fit and design. But it's the lack the discovery of a premade garment's fabric, texture, design, details, etc. What I'm looking for is something I that don't have now and have yet to experience.

KB, almost nothing off-the-rack is quite what I want or fits me that great.

if money was no object, then i would have a suit created with the finest material , so silky, so luxurious, and that after one wear and dry clean, it would probably fall apart.

I would have a whole slew of double-breasted suits made by Caraceni, Dege & Skinner and Camps Deluca. Formal clothes would be by Knize of Vienna, if only for that Loos store. Shirts by Lanvin bespoke circa 1930 Shoes would have a bit of variety such as Corthay bespoke in multihues, and possibly some of the Japanese makers like Suzuki.

In bespoke the onus is on the commissioner to make it interesting.

Some of your anti-bespoke comments really make me wonder.

Interesting contradiction. You say that bespoke "lacks a lot of the elements makes clothes interesting" and "one gets a desired fit and design" and then go on to say that you're looking for something you "don't have now" and "have yet to experience". Hmm...isn't the very nature of bespoke to get a suit made for you, and with any construction you want. That includes fabric, fit, etc. If you wanted a suit that was constructed with wool and handwoven with a tuft of pig hair, you could do that. Where can you get that option in OTR suits? Additonally, I find it odd that you consistently: 1. Not answer the OP's question (actually something I see a lot of in your replies) 2. Bash bespoke when you clearly haven't experienced bespoke. Now, to answer the OP's question: Suit: Bespoke SB, peaked lapel, dark grey with light gray subtle pinstripe, working buttonholes, and english cut made by Poole & Co. Shirt: Bespoke from Thomas Mahon. Solid white, Sea Island cotton. French cuffs. Tie: Solid blue Brioni tie. Shoes: Cordovan Edward Green cap toe oxfords. EDIT: Typos.
