It's incredible on, I can see how wearing white suits could become addictive, thinking of doing a white flannel one for fall.

I sold that flannel jacket btw..... oh yeah and I have a shirt of yours, when would you like to come in for that?

Sometimes in the next few months when I get back to the city ;-) can you keep it on ice until I can figure things out?

David, do you make your suits with a cupped or flared skirt? Why do British tailors flare the skirt?

Not what I would think of as a flared skirt, more like a nipped in high waist. Its always important that the shoulder is wider than the hips otherwise you tend to get a feminine shape rather than a masculine athletic one.

I know what you mean by flared skirt and I don't particularly dislike it but I wouldn't say my suits have a flared skirt, in answer to your question I think its a holdover from military uniforms which of course is the progenitor of this kind of dress.

I think though in terms of shape in coats a lot of american tailors just don't get it, I was talking to a young cutter friend the other day (about my age which is relatively young in this business) he was developing a slim fit suit model for a brand. When I tried it on I was just struck by the way it was simply thin with little shape, it was just a shrunken down boxy suit, the effect being now rectangular.

Thanks for the insight.
