New Dormeuil books come out tomorrow, may be some new mohair additions.

Thanks for the info, would love to see the new Dorumeuil book......

 

Also David, just have a quick review of your work, love the 3 button you got

Most of them get the "real" roll 3 button rather than the 3 roll 2.

That looks great, how would you compare this 18oz Malloy & Sons tweed vs the Porter and Harding 14oz tweeds you've made and posted a little while back?  Any major difference or just a little added warmth and a bit more texture?

It is quite soft like the Porter and Harding but certainly thicker which makes it rather cozy to wear. I wore it out last night and didn't feel uncomfortable with the the weight at all. I think it would make an especially nice overcoat.

That sounds awesome! I'll be thinking about placing that order in August for sure. Weird to be thinking about next winter when I wish this one was over.

It's something I still want to do, but been extremely busy with bespoke work over the past 12 months, especially with clients buying multiple items at once. It's a good problem to have though!

I moved into a bigger office this past month and kept my old one, this may be used for admin and to service the online store.

Well August would be the time to order a coat, it's all about forward thinking with custom clothing, I ordered a summer jacket for myself last week.

Where does David Reese order his own stuff ?

And what are you making ?

 

I am also sourcing some linen (or fresco ? mohair ?)  at the moment and hoping to make a safari jacket / shirt jacket atm 

Also just gave my tailor some fresco for a jacket
