Greg, don't get me wrong, I love that jacket. That said, I'm a sucker for blues and browns/rust.

Hmm. Any chance of doing something in pink cashmere? Or would I have to visit Attolini for that.

The Drapers looks nice. I think this is a different gun club from The Armoury/Liverano that the Unfunded Liabilities thread couldn't identify (IIRC).



Some others from Unfunded Liabilities that looked good to me.

Or you could keep the heavyweight donegal and stuff for a secondary option 2.

Anyway, I'm not sure the race to obscurantism is the best approach here.

Maybe it's a bias from living in a warmer climate but I believe a mid weight fabrics here would make more sense. A larger pool of people might be willing to buy in. I enjoy the few tweeds I own, but find I can't wear them enough to invest this kind of money into a MTO piece.

@sprout2

Agreed about the funky gunclub and horseblanket recommendations. Need something more basic, like a solid or slight textured fabric.

I already own about 4 hopsack navy blazers, so I'm good on that front.

Linen doesn't strike me as a great choice for a first MTO project. The guy at Chipp Tailors once remarked that he dislikes making cotton or linen items for customers. "Go wool or go home." I could go for a wool-linen blend in blue, however.

Also, I find I’m uncomfortable when someone asks me to make something for them where I feel they have to pay me more than they should. Case in point, when people ask me to make poplin trousers. I say, “These are your clothing Miranda Rights: You shouldn’t be buying poplin trousers from me, because the cloth we’re using is a better make than the cloth deserves, but it still costs me the same to make trousers out of poplin as the world’s finest flannel.” As a result, while my price on the flannels is better than everyone else’s, my price on the poplin is more than you should be paying for poplin. I say that, and many tell me, “But I can’t find the colors I want, and I want a higher or shorter rise, and I can afford it.” So I do it and sleep well because I told them they shouldn’t be paying me for poplin or seersucker.

These are lovely, but I'm curious what color trousers. Mid grey doesn't seem the best choice. Brown, navy, dark grey or charcoal? I'd love to see a pic with the whole fit visible.

 

That said, I would be more interested in a Donegal or other tweed, blue or brown for a MTO SC from Formosa.

Greg, can you tell us a little more about the two new sport coat makers? On the formality spectrum, are they more similar to the Cantarelli style or the Camoshita ones?
