Yeah I do prefer solids in general. I was thinking about getting brown in birdeseye instead of solid. Was going to get a blazer suit. Do you guys think birdeseye trousers would be usable as a separate? I think so, it adds some texture. So deciding between these two: http://www.dugdalebros.com/online-shop/new-fine-worsted-bunch-140/8972/ http://www.dugdalebros.com/online-shop/super-120s-bunch-137/8853/
- Yeah, birdseye is the sort of subtle textured and/or patterned fabric that you should look at now. I am at a similar stage with my wardrobe refresh too -- thanks to a nudge from @EliodA -- and birdseye is on my fabric shortlist too.
- Alas, like yourself, I'm still wrestling with fit issues with my HK tailor too. Sigh.
- Blazer suit is definitely the way to go for a more versatile travel friendly wardrobe or for those on a tight budget. But, you may get flamed by the purists.
- I will check out your fabrics and respond later. Also, I think you should check out @Pliny's new gun club check jacket fabric, I think it would be an ideal muted toned jacket for hight contrast types like us.
- Also, as a hip young man, you may be able to rock a black and white sheperd's check jacket too, which is becoming fashionable -- again. Just my 2 cents worth.
- Wow, hard choice Iso. Both the worsted and birdseye dark chocolate coloured fabrics are very nice indeed. You have a good eye for nice fabrics. Either one would look great on you, me thinks.
- If you're already well served for solids, then give the birdseye a try. I expect you may even inspire me to follow your lead. Good luck with your planned new commission.
- But for heaven's sake, get you existing custom made fit issues nailed down first. Otherwise, just compounding your woes, man. Like you, I speak from experience.
