post #31 of 34
That looks great, z! I agree with the pockets, but overall, it's a great cut.

If there's a problem and you want the clothes faster, you just get on an airplane. I understand that people have been known to do that for fittings.

In my experience, you rarely see bespoke clothes in six months. With a perfected pattern I can get a forward fitting in four months and have clothes in seven if nothing goes wrong. If there's more than the most trivial adjustment, add two or three more months.

I have settled into a pattern where I order spring clothes in the fall and expect them the following summer. I'll order winter clothes in the spring and get them the following winter.

Also, the sleeves shouldn't look so rumpled.

The fabric looks beautiful.

Well, some fabrics tend to rumple a bit in the sleeves. I can't think of an flannel suit that I have ever seen that doesn'trumple a bit through the elbows, but I can't tell what fabric this is anyway. The suit looks nice to me. As an aside, everybody here who gives a lot of critiques tends to also post some pictures of their own clothing. You know, it adds a little gravitas to the opinions. Maybe you could post something of you, or perhaps some of your clients to show us what you do like. That would be more helpful than constantly advising besom pockets and nitpicking.
