Thread Starter 
Considering first bespoke DB, would you say Navy, Charcoal, or patterned? 3-piece or 2-piece? Here are pics of some I found:

Navy
Charcoal
Lapo Navy
Lapo Charcoal

I voted for navy worsted - it would be more versatile, season-wise, than flannel, and allow you more options for accessorization than chalkstripe.

Beyond that, I just prefer navy to charcoal .

Whichever you choose, I am sure that it will be handsome.

+1.

But what will this suit be used for? If it's for business the navy chalkstripe would be a good choice too.

And go with a 2-piece. 3-piece DB suits aren't necessary unless you have no heating.

x2. A 3 piece DB seems a little crazy.

(re)Start a trend: Flannel 3 piece. Color of your choice. Turn down the heat at home, make her nipples salute you. -S.

I'd like to change my vote.

Thanks for all the help, I decided to go with the Navy Worsted 2pc DB from Tom Mahon, first fitting is in March, hope it comes out killer.

Navy worsted in my opinion. As it is your first DB, I think that it would be the most versatile. I believe Manton said a while ago that he often wears his Navy DB for those occasions that call for less than black tie. I like that idea.

Best of luck with the outcome, and I hope it comes out a killer as well - pictures after the fact, PLEASE!

Agree. Actually I have a glen plaid db that gets more wear than anything else.
