I think it was your pics of the fabric that convinced me to order it... fistbump.gif

How are you having it made up?

Nice! If I posted pics they were only stolen from the LL website - I had it shipped straight to Mina. It'll be a DB suit for me.

As you see in the first picture, the pants are not falling in a clean straight line in the thigh area, the fabric is "bulking/rumpling" see the circled areas.



I would prefer if the fabric was falling in a clean straight line, as illustrated by the red lines in the second picture



Will this problem be eliminated when the pants are shortened to correct lenght (no/slight break)?
If not, what needs to be done to eliminate this?

Opinions are welcomed!

I'd suggest just asking Mina about it. Asking for suggestions from teh interwebs based on a couple of pictures, suggestions which you will then take to an actual tailor in order to direct her how to do her job, is unlikely to be productive IMHO.

I'm not planning to seek advice here in order to instruct Mina, as she is the expert and I'm clearly not. I'm posting since I'm curious to know the opinions of others.

MrChris - it's a very common / easy to diagnose problem.

Has nothing to do with break.

Back balance is too long (there's too much cloth in the back / seat of the pants. Take that out and it'll be fine. She should catch that pretty quickly and know exactly what to do.

3 pc summer suit doesn't really make that much sense to me since I only wear the vest on a 3 pc suit when it's especially cold (or I suppose if I want to be especially formal....but that's never going to be the case if I'm wearing mocha linen). What's your reasoning behind getting the vest? Are you getting peak or notch lapels? For some reason something about peak lapels on a SB linen strikes my fancy. I'm getting a SB SC in the oats linen with peak lapels and a SB suit in the taupe linen, also w peak lapels.

Notch lapels. The flap pockets are because I'm not a big lover of patch pockets on my suits, even a more casual suit like linen. I think it makes them too casual for my personal taste. The vest is because I like them. Not very practical for a summer suit, I know, and on the hottest days I'll skip the vest but I love the look of vested suits and wear the three pieces all the time, weather permitting; I don't wait for a special occasion, so to speak. And TBH in general I don't feel that much warmer when I wear a vest.

BTW, on your most recent blog post, is that suit made from Minnis flannel? How are you finding it? I liked that pattern when I saw it on one of NSM's visits.

You mean this one?

That's a birdseye (or maybe it's a nailhead I can never keep straight which is which), not a flannel, sorry to disappoint!

I will probably just get jetted pockets on mine. I may end up going for flaps, but I'd be keeping them tucked 99% of the time if so.

I have always enjoyed the look and feel of classic outwear like an Arny’s of Paris Forestiere or British tweed sport jackets. But, when I try them on they are usually far too boxy and don’t suit my build. I asked MIna and Dino of Napolisumisura if they would make a heavy jacket that combined their modern Neopolitan style and a 1940’s “sport” coat (as seen in the photo of David Niven, above). I wanted something that I could dress up with a tie or throw on with jeans to go hunting truffles (In case I ever decided to go truffle hunting, that is). Loro Piana had just released a large herringbone pattern in deep brown and putty (off white) with a retro look. It reminded me of fabrics I had seen on various models of Forestieres. I asked for patch pockets, a little longer length and a slightly roomier shoulder.

What I have now is a very comfortable warm jacket (cashmere and wool blend) that is as dressy or as casual as I want it to be.
