Thinking one or two flannels and then a couple hard wearing year rounders, likely in the color wheel.

Styleforum Top Pickspost #737 of 11582/6/13 at 10:43amFox, Harrisons, and Minnis flannels are all very nice. Mid grays and charcoals. Year round fabric you might want to look at his wall where you can get some deals. It kind of depends on a lot of factors, but honestly the really heavy Minnis Fresco is built like iron and doesn't feel nearly as heavy as it is because of the weave. I would look into that as well.post #738 of 11582/6/13 at 10:45ampost #739 of 11582/6/13 at 10:48ampost #740 of 11582/6/13 at 10:49ampost #741 of 11582/6/13 at 10:50amQuote:Originally Posted by patrickBOOTH

This is helpful, I tend to wear hot, well mostly in my upper half, but still. I'm definitely hoping to find some good deals on his wall.
Also, thanks for figuring out that collar of yours, I've had it copied on 4 shirts and love it.post #742 of 11582/6/13 at 10:50amQuote:
Honestly, I think a bit of rope looks great on all but the most casual of suits. I think this one looks great.
SCs are another story.post #743 of 11582/6/13 at 10:53amQuote:I'm glad it is working out for you. I love my collars very much.Quote:
I don't buy into the whole sloped shoulder should be built up and such. Basically I like neapolitan shoulders for the summer and natural for the winter. Ironically I have neo shoulders on my overcoat. I just wanted something different.post #744 of 11582/6/13 at 11:03amQuote:
The first suit I had him make I asked him to add rope actually. He wanted to do the shoulders with out it, but I had liked what I had seen from him with it. We ended up trying on a few "natural shoulder" options to figure it out. This one he did without the same roping. I would assume he added something for the concave shape, but then again, that's awfully close to the shape of my shoulders.post #745 of 11582/6/13 at 6:31pmpost #746 of 11582/6/13 at 6:37pmpost #747 of 11582/16/13 at 9:38am
Long time lurker, first time poster-
After reading this entire thread, I was convinced that Frank was the tailor I should go to for my wedding suit. He and Jeremy have been wonderful throughout the process. Today was my first fitting, so I thought I would upload the photos Frank took:
I am still waiting for my Hober wedding tie to arrive, so I had to wear something else today for the fitting. So far, we decided to shorten the jacket a bit, bring the shoulders in 1/8th of an inch and soften them just a touch, along with all the various changes in the sleeves you can see in the second photo.
Thoughts? The shirt is also Frank's work- a nice white on white herringbone pattern. Some of you might recognize the inspiration for the collar. I also have a pair of gray dress pants on order with Frank, and will inevitably get another shirt or two in the spring (his shop is DANGEROUS!).post #748 of 11582/16/13 at 10:26amThread StarterQuote:Originally Posted by ddgdl

Looks good. If you wanted something local in terms of neckwear, I might know a guy...post #749 of 11582/16/13 at 10:35ampost #750 of 11582/16/13 at 11:11am
