...and I met up with a friend at the Rose Bowl swapmeet this morning who is going to introduce me to his own knitwear maker, who's supposedly awesome, is supposedly inexpensive, and is LA local. *fingers crossed that this guy works out*

This plus the shirts makes Thick as Thieves so very very EXCITING! I hope you have a storefront in L.A. someday so I can try these out!!

Nice site, suits look great, but I really hate that silhouetted jumping(?) guy. Somehow he reminds me of a tuxedo rental place that you'd find in a suburban mall. I don't mean that to be harsh, I just don't think it matches your whole aesthetic and possibly doesn't read the way you think it might. I would try to fine-tune him a bit, JMHO.

I really have to agree with him. I can see the appeal, but I think you should do something more aggressive and less clip art. Hell, grab a screencap from Gangster No 1 and run it through photoshop.

I like it. Seems evocative of the classic/timeless aesthetic of the clothes you are creating, not married to modern or retro. I would have drawn a tasteful gun into his hand, maybe a spear-gun. Probably because your suits remind me of Sean Connery-era James Bond styles. Not sure if that is what you are going for but, from me, that's a compliment.

visionology is right: as long as you're using graphics instead of text and tables instead of CSS layout, updating the site is going to be way more work than it needs to be.

Great stuff. Any chance of a navy worsted or grey tweed anywhere in the future?

finding a good affordable tweed is on the priority list.

It would be really interesting if you could get cloth from Lesser, a tweed, a worsted flannel, and a plain worsted, and do a "premium" TaT line. Just and idea.

I'm guessing that a fully canvassed suit in those cloths would come in at something line $7-800 to make it worthwhile. Of course, I haven't really done the math, nor do I know your cost now, so that's a pure guessimate.

Excellent. I'll most likely be looking for something tweed for my next suit.

Fok, I have thought about doing a "premium" line in the future with higher end fabrics like Scabal, Dormeuil, etc. Your price point is pretty accurate, maybe a tad low but close, just because those fabrics are pricey but for someone that wants the pedigree it might be something worthwhile to offer. I have a bunch of ideas that I'd like to explore once things get going and know that fellas like what they've received.

Cool.

Re. the mills you choose if this should ever happen (i.e. this is a purely academic question at this point.) I know that a lot of your inspiration is the Mod movement. Given that, would you be more likely to choose English fabrics as a nod towards the roots of that movement, or Italian milled fabrics in recognition that the early, original mods took their cues from contemporary Italian styles? Just wondering...

Jason, from a fashion buyer's standpoint, please do not make a "premium" line. I hate it when companies/labels say, "Well, if you can't afford our REAL product, you can have one of our lesser ones, because we know you're a brand whore and will pay just for the name."

I would just offer the higher end fabrics with a higher price tag and label them as English Wool or something of the sort.
