I admittadly know very little about clothing, so I came onto this thread hoping to find definitions of MTM, and Bespoke. I assume that RTW= ready to wear... but yeah can someone PM me an explanation as to what MTM and Bespoke mean, or how they relate to clothes.

Just updated all links in the first post. I will go through the thread here in a bit if I don't get sidetracked too far.

I just tried to follow the links to Manton's posts on Suit silhouettes. It seems that his posts in that thread have all been taken out and replaced with ellipses. Any idea where they have gone and where I can obtain this information? Frustratingly, all that remains are comments saying how fantastic and encyclopedic the posts were.

You are not missing anything. That is all there was. It is just that we are fanatical about loving our ellipses.

I am usually against self promotion, but I am going to do it on this post... sorry.

Take a look at www.TailorInStyle.com - it is a website/guide only about mens shirts. It was started about a month ago, but we are adding more and more information to it as time passes.

You can also get a free eBook version of our upcoming book about mens shirts here.

I hope it is helpful!

Someone should define fabrics and styles of suits for each season. i.e. Summer - Linen, Cotton Suits Winter - Flannel, Cashmere Wool Suits I don't know what goes under spring, fall, and year-round. By the way, should most flannel/winter cashmere wool suits have patch pockets?

Wow I've never even heard of these terms before. I'm new to this forum, and just reading these terms that you posted blows my mind. Never knew you can put a name to everything! lol

Thanks
