I can easily lengthen the jacket body
Here's my dilemma on only selling trousers....I would have to sell them for around $150, which *to me* doesnt sound like a good deal, whereas I think $400 ($500 retail) for the entire suit *is* a good deal. Now extra trousers if you buy a suit I could sell for $100, which is a modest surcharge over my cost
shirts....I'm trying to source some decent fabric (which I think I may have found finally). I made a prototype that was ok, but still need to work on the collar area, but the body turned out good.
knitwear....as soon as I find a good maker. I used to buy knitwear from this one local fellow that made 1940s cableknit sweater repros and the quality was really good so I wanted to use his source, but he's in prison for some shit or another so I have to find different resources, but this is one area i *really* want to get into, as it will be more affordable daily wear items for someone that can't swing the suit. (and I want to make my own cardigans that I cant readily find)
