Manton's Solito stuff is some of my favorite bespoke on styleforum, but I agree in general that I would prefer that the fashion revert to a lower gorge.

Manton, I notice that you buy a lot of your own fabrics and do CMT. Is that because the selection from Solito is inferior / smaller, or is it to take advantage of the savings?

Great stuff. Just one comment in the spirit of nitpicking, the breast pockets seem a tad high particularly the patch one. Could be due to the angle ....

I had an OTR suit like this not too long ago. It photographs oddly in front of camera flashes. Ends up looking like sharkskin

great stuff Manton, I have a similar woodhouse made up as pants, but mine is a wool/cashmere blend, just need to get Mina to make me the jacket:

Manton, can you say a few words about the feel of the Solito garments vs. A&S and maybe Raphael, in terms of what it's like to wear them? The A&S garments seem to have their own unique feel.

Someone needs to write a post about how to take and upload good cloathes porn pics, and then get it stickied. It would make SF a better place.

Nice stuff, Manton. I really like the higher lapel roll on these. Makes for a more voluptuous curve down the front of the jacket. Solito is doing a great job.

I find that ghost pocket stitch kinda cool. Great horseshoe shape.

Yeah, long ago. Though I know a guy who has a piece he hasn't made, if you want it I might be able to persuade him to sell it.

Lesser has a very similar pattern in the 9.5/10 book but it's not fresco.

Very nice. Manton, do the Solito(e)s speak English? What is the turnaround for a suit with 2 fittings like? PS: nice crocs.

Yes I know - I would much prefer it in a fresco. Let me think about it.

This is a wonderful thread to view first thing this morning. Especially since I am picking up a completed suit this afternoon.

Manton, could you talk about the different tailor's approach to drape that you have used? Does it feel or look any different between all of the tailors or are the results pretty much the same to you?
