Thanks for that - 1.5" and 1.25" for back and front respectively for our American friends.

Nice jackets! Have you considered getting trousers with the Donegal (P&H, right?)?

What fabric did you use for the navy suit?

gusvs,

These are great; thanks for sharing. Seeing bespoke results is the main thing that keeps me coming back to the forum.

I agree that the examples here are very nice, but fwiw, I prefer Manton in his Solitos over his NSM. I presume he qualifies as tall & slender?

Yes, P&H Donegal. I did consider getting trousers as well but changed my mind and went a safer route instead with flannel for the trousers. I know, I'm a coward

The navy suit is a Holland & Sherry Cape Horn Classics in Air Force blue.

gus - Fantastic stuff. All truly great, but I also echo the sentiments about the Donegal. The one jacket I'm definitely having made up this Fall is a dark blue Donegal. Most likely W. Bill fabric, but that Thornproof is mighty tempting as well!

Hehe. No no. Just a jacket is great as well. It's like an interesting winter blazer, if you know what I mean.

Yeah, definitely way too warm for this season! I'll have to wait a few months before I can wear it comfortably.

Thanks David.

Gusvs, great stuff.

Makes me very happy to see new people enjoying Mina's work and her business growing as much as it has.

Gusvs, can't really add anymore compliments here other than that your fits have convinced me that I'm definitely going to get in touch with Mina for her next trip.

Thanks guys.

Since I got quite a few PMs asking about how many fittings I had with Mina: for all my items I had only one fitting (the basted fitting), and needless to say I am extremely satisfied with the results.

I see what you mean. I myself think Manton looks best in Suits from his mystery A&S guy with the neapolitan stuff being only so-so. He is very tall and very slender to my eye and that is (imo) something most italian tailors have a hard time fitting. This is just my personal view, though, and I might very well have it all wrong.

I've seen Manton in both and I think the Solito cut looks marginally better on him.

Anyone else meeting with Mina this weekend in London?
I am considering an appointment and would be interested to hear her prices for a sportcoat and 2pc suit. I already emailed to ask but she did not answer the question (perhaps prefering to discuss in person).

Anybody else like to chime in on the experience? I am a relatively new bespoke client but this thread has convinced me I need to meet Mina and her team; I believe I read that they are good at advising clients on a cut that flatters them (and those lapels )

Thanks in advance
KJ

Hello everyone

Been dipping in and out of SF over the last few years. Much intimidated by the encyclopedic knowledge of members such as Foof, Manton, Vox etc. So, apologies for asking what might be considered a ridiculous question.

Anyway, for an ordinary bloke who just wants to look reasonably OK, would the following:



1.) Have too much of a power look? Too overbearing, or just the way he's wearing it?

2.) Will the lapels (is this called a high gorge line?) look gimmicky in a few years, or simply timeless Italian style?

3.) Make one stick out like a sore thumb in London?

This will be bespoke Nº 3. Nº 2 was picked up last week. Now considering something a little more adventurous. After four suits, I'll cancel my SF membership and get on with my life.

Cheers

Lear
