I commissioned my first SR project last week, a 3-piece navy in Lesser golden bale. I was assisted by Clive Gilkes, and my measurements were taken by Richard. Some details are nailed down while others are still up in the air:
Coat will be a single button, and I'll need to confirm whether to go with flapped besom or besom pockets.
Waistcoat was recommended with four pockets. It may be that I'm unaccustomed to seeing four, so am leaning towards two
Trousers at natural waist, and I'm still contemplating flat front or double pleats, which I was advised is the typical configuration for a 3-piece
They appear quite flexible to accommodate my travel schedule, and as I often stop by in London back and forth from the US, I'm hopeful this commission should advance quite nicely. Basted fitting in about 3 weeks - will update this thread as the fittings progress.
