Can you clarify? What's the best way to pull off black satin?
I think this may be the start of a new blog post. My short answer is I think its good as a semi formal look thats smarter than daywear but less so than a dinner suit. IMO it should never be a substitute for a bow tie on a dinner suit, but I can see how the unfamiliarity of the bow tie frightens some people.
Black, blue and gun metal satin are great for "semi formal", other colors are rather tricky and so a shantung may be more suitable if you want to go for a solid vibrant color in a smoother finish.
Next Monday and Tuesday I will be in Toronto to see a new client. Hopefully this will be the genesis of regular trips to see clients in the area. The exact timing and hotel I have not finalized but I will be in Yorkville. If anybody would like to meet me to place a commission please feel free to contact me here or on my Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be staying at the Sheraton hotel from Monday the 13th- Tuesday the 14th. If anyone would like to set up an appointment let me know ASAP as obviously my time in the city will be limited. I will be coming back for at least one fitting and there is also the option of shipping garments or doing fittings in NYC.
