It's been a while since my last posting.
I've recently commissioned 1 suit with Lee Baron & another with Y William Yu.
Thought it'll be good to share their recent work here & get some advise from you Gurus.
I've just completed my basted fitting with Peter. It's a JJ Minnis Fresco, Navy Pinstripe for a summer suit suitable for the scorching Australian weather. The suit will be 2 buttoned & half lined, with High notch lapel & slanted pockets. The jacket will come with 2 trousers (one with side adjuster, the other with belt loops). Here's a pic of the first fitting:
All looks fine for now except for the button stance that is a little too high for my liking. Have asked Peter to lower it for a more elongated silhouette. Any thoughts?
Y William Yu:
It wasn't my original intention to engage with them for a CMT since I have never purchased anything there. (Not a very good idea isn't it, since I don't know how their handcraft will work for me)
I Just don't know what got into me that day & I decided to go with them, entrusting them with my Scabal Eton s130 Dark Blue fabric for my 2nd suit.
Andy was really friendly, taking my measurements and measured my best fitted suit. He explained to me the process and asked about my preference. After looking though pics that I've emailed him, he seemed to have got the picture and told me to return next week for my basted fitting. Will keep everyone posted on the progress.
