Poorsod, did you ever get this made up? If so, how does it wear? I've held off getting the 15 oz Loro Piana Mare linen made up so far because of concerns about weight, but I'll need to get something made up soon to get any use out of it through September. (There's nothing like a swelteringly hot NYC day to put you off heavyweight fabrics lol.)

FWIW, since I'm moving to having only season-appropriate suits & jackets, a summery lighter-blue shade will work for me (I'm in a creative field, so dressing more conservatively makes me the odd man out, anyway...) That said, I may just go for a mimimally-lined lightweight fresco/finmeresco in a medium blue...

So far I have liked the way it holds its shape but I wear it mostly in air conditioned places. Haven't been out with it in the heat.

Is this your first 3 patch?

post #966 of 1185
Yes.
post #967 of 1185

Looks good, does this mean less white shirts and wedding ties?

post #968 of 1185
Not a chance. Plus, this suit is on the old side now, SF just never saw it.

Any updates?

Suits came in without any buttons and button holes (as PB mentioned, those are done in Brooklyn by hand). Frank worked on adding a lot of shape to one of their suits, and I thought it turned out really well. My friend ended up asking for him to take a bit of it out, which I tried to argue against, but ultimately lost because, well, it isn't my suit. The suit I liked better they didn't get any pictures of (we all remembered after he had taken it off), but the other one is here

 

I thought they were very well done for the price, though I'll stick to his bespoke personally.

I think this suit is actually very good.

Oh yeah, I didn't mean to say this one didn't turn out well. I just was really impressed with my other friend's suit. My other friend is in no way athletic, thin, just not athletic. Frank, did a great job adjusting the chest and the waist in it; really thought it flattered my friend quite well.

You can contact them on their website, and they'll get back to you on price.

Jeremy told me months ago that they start at $800, and you have to buy two the first time, but they first make a suit out of cheap wool for fit then the other two. So you would get 2+1 cheap material suit. But they where still working out the details at the time, so that info might not still be accurate.
