First fitting, a rather tall and slim client with an upright posture and a drop right shoulder. A pad on the the right shoulder will balance him out nicely, clean up the chest and even out the sleeve lengths.
I will always advise a client to invest in good cloth. Aside from the named books which look fancy a client may not be able to appreciate looking at a swatch the difference in quality between say one navy wool cloth and another. When that higher end cloth is made up they will however see and feel that difference for a whole lot longer.
Quantity has a quality all of its own but how many suits and overcoats do you need to wear? A small well thought out and quality wardrobe is all most men need.
Here is the coat:
Looks great - what fabric is it? And what fabrics do you recommend/work with for overcoats (in terms of brands)?
What is a typical price range for pants similar to those shown above? What is the turn-around time?
How many meeting are typically required for a new customer?
You would be looking at $750. Without a try on, and right now we are looking at mid March deliveries. If I think you need a try on for the trousers I will recommend you have one and this increases the usual number of fittings from 3 to 4. In terms of how many fittings I will actually do, well, as many as is needed to get the garment just right for you but usually in terms of a suit or a trouser its 3.
Looks like I will be going back to Toronto for fittings and to see new clients on the weekend of the 21st of March. Interested parties should contact me now to book an appointment. I have not yet settled on a hotel but it will be fairly central.
