Any pics? 

Haven't made those but I reckon I could do quite a mean Peacoat.

Went well but I didn't see any of the city, just the hotel....which wasn't very glam, maybe four seasons next time?

I'm back in a March but haven't got the date nailed down yet.

Fit picture from last week.



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.

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?

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)?

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.

Thank you. Its is a Dormeuil wool and casmere. Loro Piana, Dormeuil and even some W bill tweeds work well in a heavier wight, I also like W Bill's Camel hair book.

TORONTO TRIP 2

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.

Best,

Dave.

Nice ties, David. Are they made by the same company that makes Lanvin ties as well? I know there's a company in France that makes handmade ties for some of the larger French labels.

Also, will you bring a few on your next trip to Toronto?
