Thanks for the information. I did surgeon cuffs too. I hope they planned on having them finished after delivery. That's what I asked for anyway. I can't imagine them cutting them at the factory off the initial measurements. I hope I like the herringbone.
Samuelsohn MTM - Page 3
I need to check what the cut is on my Navy Birdseye, but its a Sammy that is a bit slimmer with some roping. Sounds like the same, but I'm not sure. Its my favorite suit right now (although it may be second after I get in a new Sammy in a few weeks). The roping threw me off a bit at first, but I pulled the trigger because I needed a navy, and this one was on sale for $250. Not sure I would have ordered one with the roping, or that I'll be getting another with roping, but I enjoy it quite a bit. It adds some variety to my closet for sure.
Either way, I'll check the tag when I get home, and see if its the same...
Wow, my size in my favorite suit! Too bad I recently bought an almost identical navy pinstripe. Someone should jump on this!
Most decent pants are $250-$400 off the peg (if you can find exactly what you're looking for) and then they would need to take them to ta tailor and make additional minor changes. Why not skip a step?
My local tailor's prices begin at $285 for pants in basic fabrics.
Good to know on the soft shoulders. Wonder how they compare to the PRL Blue Label soft shoulders. I will check out the trunk show tonight. My primary concerns are that: a) I don't know how much this one-off creation will cost and b) I don't know how well it will be executed. I have to believe that, at some point, Sammy has done this vest before. It isn't as though I am asking for something that is completely unheard of. Also Greenfield and PRL offer it is as a stock option. I do want to insist on getting a MTM with a DB, peak vest because it is for my wedding and truly want something special.
I've seen the illustrations of the Gable. They are hardly "soft Shoulders" by my purist standards. If you want real
Natural shoulders from Samuelsohn, go with their Greenwich or their Talbot models. The I've tried both
and the Talbot IMHO is somewhat more "Neapolitan" than the Greenwich. Both are great coats.

I don't think Samuelsohn compares in quality to other pants in that price range (up to $400). I have 3 pairs of Samuelsohn pants alone. I bought them on sale for $200 each and they might be worth that but I can't see paying double to get better material. Most pants can be altered to fit propertly at a reasonable cost. I have never spent more than $40 myself. I encourage you to check other OTR sources and strongly recomment HY pants although they do fit slim.
Thanks, this is helpful.
