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?
