I'm looking into having my first bespoke suit made. I am in need of a suit which will work well for a specific purpose, so I'm looking for advice into the what features SF would recommend, and which tailor SF would recommend.
The purpose of the suit will be to be worn for video, TV and large conferences where video display of the stage is the norm.
From an earlier thread, I know that I want to have a generally plain, matte fabric. Small repetitive patterns tend to cause issues with some forms of video recording software, so I want to avoid those.
Under harsh studio lighting, colours will tend to look somewhat different than in daylight. I understand that blue fabrics and artificial lighting tend to look the most different (as artificial lighting is more yellow in most cases), but is this true for TV lighting? If not, are there particular shades to avoid?
I'm assuming a lightweight fabric will be preferable due to the heat from studio lighting. How light, and are there any drawbacks (especially in terms of how the material hangs)?
In a conference environment or a Q & A I might have to sit for periods of time and then stand to reply to specific questions. Would a DB Jacket be preferable to awkwardly rebuttoning or leaving the jacket loose, and would this cause the jacket to be too hot under lights?
And lastly, anyone care to recommend a particular London Tailor who would be best for the work?
