REEVES OFFICIAL AFFILIATE THREAD - Page 34post #496 of 13156/18/14 at 12:31pmThread Starterpost #497 of 13156/18/14 at 8:11pmQuote:Originally Posted by David Reeves
Of course, it depends how you define "unstructured". I would define a tailored garment with a floating chest piece, shoulder pad and hand padded lapels as structured. A piece of knitwear, a shirt or jersey Jacket I would call an unstructured garment.
My clothes have very light padding and construction, emphasizing cutting rather than padding things out which is really a less sophisticated approach. If you come to my office and try someone else jacket on that is two sizes too big, you can still tell its a well made garment because the sleeves are put in correctly and everything drapes well.
Back to your question, I personally think that heavier cloths are less congruous to unstructured garments (for example heavy tweed). On the other hand this season in particular I have been using very, very lightweight cloths in silks, linens and cottons to make half lined jackets and suits that stylistically look very sharp and English looking.
All of these suits are half lined and made from silk, linen or cotton in the 6.5 - 8.0 weight range
Thanks for the insight.post #498 of 13156/18/14 at 8:52pmQuote:Originally Posted by David Reeves
I am calling time on the sample sale a little early, cleared through most of it yesterday so I am shutting the door and tidying the place up.
Not much left anyway but surprisingly this very classic charcoal grey three piece did not sell for $550! it is a size 38/40 with pleats and a longer cut coat, so its rather traditionally styled. If anyone is interested in picking this up today give me a call: 917 783 2270 and I will let you in to take a look.
I will not be selling this suit after today unless I do another sample sale next summer.
David - Just saw this. Is this still up for sale? I am local. Thanks.post #499 of 13156/19/14 at 3:44ampost #500 of 13156/19/14 at 5:05amThread Starterpost #501 of 13156/19/14 at 5:06amThread Starterpost #502 of 13156/19/14 at 7:35amThread Starterpost #503 of 13156/19/14 at 7:43ampost #504 of 13156/19/14 at 7:56amThread Starterpost #505 of 13156/19/14 at 7:57amQuote:Originally Posted by David Reeves
David Reeves Gilt city sale on custom suits:
Does this only apply to people who get measured in your New York shop, or does it also apply to you doing trunk shows like Toronto? If it applies to international trunk shows like Toronto, when are you planning to visit again?post #506 of 13156/19/14 at 8:30amThread StarterQuote:
Fraid so. The sample sale last week and this Gilt City offer are really intended to give me a boost over the summer as most of my Bespoke clients get out of the city. discounts and sales are not really something I want to drag out or be known for.
This will certainly be the last special offer that I do this year, I may do something similar for summer 2015 but not really sure right now.post #507 of 13156/19/14 at 8:47amQuote:
I've been thinking about getting a couple of pairs made. How would we go about cashing in on this offer, since there's no way to purchase ahead of time using giltcity?post #508 of 13156/19/14 at 8:55ampost #509 of 13156/19/14 at 8:56amThread StarterQuote:
