Shocking how small Hober's Macclesfield selection is these days... when I ordered mine it was much bigger

That olive I have pictured is no longer available frown.gif

The problem is that unless you are a Drake's sized company and can order bespoke patterns, then the likes of me, hober, VM etc order off the stock range, which is quite large probably around 500 or so prints but the problem is generally once they go they go unless someone re-orders one and then Adamley usually make another 10-20 metres of it for stock. So it's more than likely that's the case for Hober and he hasn't ordered any replacements, maybe focussing on other fabrics like grenadine who knows.

The downside to ordering off stock is I quite often see the same patterns at Capelli or VM that I do, but then we sell to very different markets as well so it's not all that bad. Case in point, this one from Viola Milano



And mine. (The VM one is quite overexposed but it's the same fabric)

1st time was with JRD's Zegna suit.

Then today. 

If I really dislike something, I want it out of my hands asap and move on. 

But don't think that I am a stubborn SOB who won't listen and learn. 

I just personally didn't like it at this stage in my sartorial life.

And I'm very grateful for that, thank you :bigstar:

Please, Broseph. Too much information.

post #13463 of 37428

noodles...

 

i think you need to make a plan.

 

buy a navy suit, buy a grey suit

buy two SC's and two pair odd trousers

buy 5 ties that are outside of your comfort range

buy 3 hanks

 

and stick to that plan...doesn't have to be the above one...but something like this might help you.

 

and you can set a deadline on it too...that is attainable within budgetary constraints, etc.

 

since you wear more suits than odd jackets and trou...you may wanna scratch them and add another suit or two...

1. Yes on the navy suit, maybe on the grey suit. I want a dark grey suit.

2. I agree. I want to get out of just wearing suits and play with you all.

3. Denied.

4. Denied.

You don't need to be a Drake's sized company to order bespoke prints. It is more expensive and there are minimum order requirements but it's definitely doable, even for the smallest shops like myself. It comes down to taking a large risk and knowing (hoping) that whatever pattern you picked will sell. 

 

Ordering off the stock range is probably the safest play because it's much cheaper and no min order requirements. But where's the fun in that? Shops like VM can easily order bespoke prints since they focus on 6/7 folds, which use a lot of more silk per tie.

What's the story behind Viola? Good ties and good value?

Noodles, if that north face jacket at the end was a formosa suit in your size, would you be able to do this?

When will NMWA restock on the suits that they've had previously?

No. I would just get it by just paying for it. A gentleman does not go by any other means. 

 

...plus, what they did in that video is degrading. If you want this, do this. FU!

For a Formosa you could add alligators and I'd do it
