Update on first order:

Trousers are immaculate. best damn fitting pants ever.

Jacket is off for a press, but out of the box, sleeves, sleeve length, and shoulders all look great.

Pics hopefully to follow.

Suit Details:
2 Button House Cut
Navy #C
Swelled edges
Slash pocket trousers
2.5" Lapels
2" trouser cuffs
Grey MOP buttons

A conservative order to start, but it looks SO damn sharp

"Couldn't have said it better myself. For the sake of full disclosure, the top chest button is loose"

On a sale thread, he said he isn't sure if it is supposed to be like that, its on the slim cut; is it or if I buy it should I tighten it?

Hi everyone This is my first post on the forums - I've just decided to get my suit for my wedding from Jason, reading through this thread when I was a non-member of the forum sealed the deal, so I thought I might get some advice for exactly what to go with. To cut to the chase, the wedding is going to be early June in Rome, which means summer. Therefore I was thinking of something light, both in colour and fabric. My fiancee will be in a 20s style ivory dress, her shoes will be red and she will probably be wearing a small red cloche, so I wanted to pick up the red/ivory in my tie and pocket square. Jason suggested these three: light grey #19 http://thickasthievesfabric.blogspot...r-fabrics.html light grey prince of wales #52 http://thickasthievesfabric.blogspot...-of-wales.html light grey herringbone #1 http://thickasthievesfabric.blogspot...ringbones.html They definitely look the best options for colour and weight, the question is which one? I wonder if #19 is a little plain and that #52 has a bit of blue through it so might not work out so well with my intended colour scheme... which I guess is pushing me towards the herringbone at the moment! I've seen a few examples in this thread and in the lookbook on the website of #52 and #1 - has anyone got pictures of a suit in #19? What do you guys think?

#1 or #52. Leaning towards #1. In my totally unqualified, take-it-with-a-grain-of-salt opinion. FWIW, I don't think the very faint hint of blue in #52 is a problem.

First post here. Thanks everyone who has posted pictures and advice in this thread, especially Get Smart. Graduating shortly so will be looking getting my first TaT suit soon. 2 button charcoal conservative, nothing that will be too fashion forward for interviews. Can anyone recommend what fabric, and full or half lined, I should be considering for Melbourne weather? Where even the coldest daytime temp in winter is still around 15c (60F).

I would recommend Charcoal #9 in the 2008 Italian Super 140. Pretty good hand and light weight.

Oh and just a weebit jealous as I just got a foot of snow dumped on my house

Thanks. It looks good, the herringbone looks great too its a shame its sold out.

Any idea of the price difference for the Super 140 fabrics?

I would contact Jason (Get Smart) directly. Prices are extremely reasonable and he's a great person to work with. He'll do just about anything to get issues sorted out.

Would a non-conservative cut be considered to...fashion..... for interviews?
I am graduating this spring, and am in need of an interview suit. I was thinking some mid-tone gray.
As well; this is depending on whether one considers TaT a good choice for my first suit.

I'd like to second this question.

depends on the line of work. other than a big bank on wall street, i'd say no. i work for a very conservative company with nothing to do with banking and many times get complimented on how well my suits look. by no means are they too fashion forward.
