I've been preaching to all my friends and anyone who will listen about your site/brand. I'm hoping to buy a two button sack suit in medium gray wool soon. How much would this approximately cost me?

Also, if you plan on sending your own lining, I assume it will only be applied to the body, under pocket of the blazer and the pocket back, right? So that means you can use just about any lighter weight fabric or would you recommend only using something with a satin weave?

I like the new setup for updates and stuff, however viewing the fabrics is tedious at best. Be nice to link your fabrics page instead. Also, on your thickasthievesla.com it is difficult to find the fabrics. It is a bit counterintuitive to me to have it only after you plan on buying. Looking at the different fabrics is part of what makes me want to buy.

Pinch me, I still can't believe that I have the opportunity to get a custom made, perfectly fitting suit, from a guy who actually cares AND at a great price.

This is something that I thought I'd never have the opportunity to get up here in the middle of nowhere in the Canadian prairies.

Anyway, Jason, I'm liking looking for the quintessential "interview" suit. It is definitely not my first suit, but I do hope that it will be my first suit that I actually enjoy wearing because of a proper fit. (I've had a charcoal 3-button in the past that no longer fits; I have a light grey 2-button 3-piece and a black 2-button with a fine gold pin-stripe currently in the closet.)

I'm thinking that a navy 1-button is in order, likely just with a notch lapel for upcoming interviews.

...as I understand it, I should just email you Jason as indicated on the site to get things started. That said, I had to write this to share my excitement.

Here's my new TaT Midnite Harris Tweed jacket. The fabric is beautiful. You can't see it here, but the lining and underside of the pocket flaps are done in bright pink satin. The fit is a little loose through the midsection so I'm taking this to the tailor. I'll post more pics after it's tailored and steamed. A few notes: the cut is the Ivy Sack, but darted; 3-roll-2 lapels; lapels slightly larger than standard at 2.75"; flapped patch pockets and a besom chest pocket.

Nice jacket Baron. Did you want it a bit on the shorter side, or are your pant pockets a bit lower than average? Also, what's a besom chest pocket? Could you post a pic of the interior lining please?

Hey I was thinking of ordering something very similar. I live in sunny California and I was wondering how heavy the fabric wears? If that question even makes sense. I just don't want it to be to hot as I am really sensitive to overheating. -Thanks

Norcal, that is a Harris Tweed but it's on the lighter side. It's not like those tweed jackets that weigh 10 lbs and are like .25" thick. It's a thinner (maybe 12oz) weight tweed and has a pretty soft hand to it. I think it'd be perfect for your area since it gets cold but not freezing

a besom chest pocket is the standard style chest pocket.

Thanks GS. I'd yet to come across that term so it threw me.

Vvoc, replied back!

Added a "where to do shoulder measurement" photo on the blog, since that is my most FAQ. Hopefully this helps

I'm new here, but just ordered an ivy sack suit in brown wool herringbone from Jason. Looking forward to receiving it.
post #898 of 4212
hey Jason. I plan to order a navy 2B jacket in the near future (still too lazy to do measurements). I was just wonder would it be more expensive to our a match pair of pants further down the line? Or would it still add up to $400?

^^ ideally I'd rather have you order together but if you get the trousers down the road, it'd be the same price as the suit but you'd be paying an extra set of shipping charges

the Vneck tennis sweater is being made, and it's going to have 2 colorways

Both will have the white/black/burgundy contrast trimming around neck/cuff/waistband, but the base color will be available in the steel-bluegrey that i already showed, and there will be a dark navy base as well

should be ready by end of Nov
