Thanks for the suggestion. In the past I've found Minnis Fresco too rough to the touch, and I felt that way again today. I met with Patrick this morning, and in the end I wound up ordering the H&S Cape Horn High Twist in light grey. Price for a two piece suit from this book is $1445, so considerably less than my last suit which was made up in H&S Target Elite.
Patrick mentioned that this is a new book, along with the Zegna Cool Effect, Loro Piana Tasmanian and one from Scabal. My fuzzy recollection is that the Zegna was in the range of $1800, Scabal $2100, LP $2800 (I think).
I have to say I'm pretty tempted by the Zegna Cool Effect stuff, does anybody have a suit made up in it? Thoughts?
Patrick also pointed out that they've revamped their website, and are now selling Drake's ties and bespoke shirts online, including an option to enter your own measurements. Fabrics are limited to Thomas Mason and Acorn, with no detail about which book/line the fabrics are from, just weights. Prices appear to range from $147 to $212, I can't tell if that includes shipping though.
