Pattern matching for a bespoke suit, single vs double breasted

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

It is usually advised that the first suit you order from a new tailor should be solid, then subsequent suits can be patterned. That way the first suit's pattern could be established without the tailor being distracted by pattern matching.

 

What if your first suit is a double breasted suit? is it ill advised to order a patterned single breasted suit for the second suit from that tailor? or is it better to order a solid single breasted suit before getting the patterned suit?

You should be fine. The biggest issue I find with pattern matching on a new client is sleeve pitch and this should be good second time round. In any case it is not your problem to worry about pattern matching but your tailors. If he/she can't get the pattern right that's their problem. Replacing or recutting sleeves that don't match after a first fitting is just one of many occupational necessities to producing good product.
