Furniture is still on order, so it will be several weeks before the space is propertly kitted out, but just wanted to share what subsequent visitors to NSM can expect.

I also had a few fittings... below a DB in Smith Woolens.

Eddie, thanks for the pics and congrats on the great looking DB!

I pulled this off Wills blog A Suitable Wardrobe. This is a cream linen jacket he had made by NSM. It has a similar cut to MedTech. I think it looks very good myself. Especially in cream linen.

I like that style on Will more.

As a convert to teh Drape, I'd like a fit guy like Medtech to have more fullness in the chest of his jacket.

A not-so-fit guy is better off with a cleaner look IMO.

Will's DB looks so different from mine that I'm surprised that it is also from NSM.

Here's my DB from NSM, which I think is different from both Will and Medtech's.

Nice jacket, ET! May I ask you for more photographs of it?

This is the first 4x2 DB jacket from NSM that I've seen, so I'm very interested in the silhouette.

Thanks, guys - unfortunately, that is a linen coat so its packed away in a trunk until the summer.

ET, where is the linen from? Looking for linen around 10-12 oz, any recs?
post #2260 of 3961
I saw some good looking linen in a drapers book. It had a good medium blue.

That's a 10oz. from Harrisons. W. Bill and Solbiati have some nice linens in that range as well.

I have samples of W. Bill linens but don't care much for them. They are too stiff for my taste, I remember seeing a linen book from Scabal which I liked, it had some heft and was soft. Will have to check out Harrisons and Drapers.

Frank showed me a book of linen cotton blends. If you want something softer and less wrinkly you could go that route. I chose not to, if I am doing linen I am going whole hog.
post #2264 of 3961
He actually showed me the linen book from Scabal, it was unlike most linens I've seen, soft and hefty. Most other linens I've seen are too stiff for my taste. Maybe you can check out that book next time you see him?

You won't be surprised to hear that I like that a lot but I'll say it all the same.

What's with the wavy shoulder line though? Is that just from the lineny wrinkles?
