I am visiting New York on my way overseas and have only a few hours... I am looking to purchase some nice light wool for a few suits. I am particularly looking for dark colors, pinstriped charcoal, plain charcoal, dark navy etc..
I have no prior experience in shopping for material, or for that matter style... I am hoping to find a place that carries lots of fabrics, so I don't need to hop around too much. a quick search online brought up moodfabrics.com and tiptop in brooklyn.. any other ideas or recommendations?
Also, can anyone comment on what type of wool is recommended and what I can expect to pay per yard? (super 120? 130? does that mean how light it is?)
I now have a job where I need to wear suits everyday (nice ones...)
On a recent trip overseas I found a great tailor who did a wonderful job on some suits, but I wasn't happy with his fabrics.. so I am hoping I can send him and he'll copy my measurements..
Thanks a lot!
