It's like me thinking all of y'all should buy dSLR's before buying any more expensive pieces of clothing. Just different priorities.

 

Are you saying your passion is in the clothing, but not your appearance?

Yeah...so you dress up nice for the office, but look less than stellar when out with the missus? Step it up people.


Tweedy, doesn't look like a bad idea.

He doesn't care about casual wear and would rather spend his money on CM stuff which he likes wearing more.

I think J crew/uniqlo are pretty awesome and you can dress pretty damn well in their shirts/chinos/jeans etc. Obviously, it depends on the look you're going for.

Some fabrics, which come to 500-750 Euros depending on which. Probably the navy herringbone as the first shot since the base model works pretty well. The top two are my favorite of the bunch though would like a darker donegal. 

 

On houndstooth jackets, I think a larger houndstooth would be better.

 

1.

 

2. Tan donegal

 

3. navy/dark blue herringbone

4. Navy micro houndstooth (or brown one)

 

5. brown/charcoal with blue overcheck

 

 

6. brown with navy check.

Yeah, that's a nice one isn't it? Given the price, not for the first jacket though.

Claghorn, 

 

I finally had some time to look up the Washington shop in YiTaeWon. I only found a phone number. It is unfortunate but they don't have a website. I guess I will just have to visit in person. 

But I did find the next best thing. Have you heard of the Hamilton's?

All of the above.

Don't shorten the base jacket and don't slim the sleeves. I know personal preference but...

The arm hole is a bit low so I would have it brought up a cm which is still lower on the last one they made for me (different model, so had to remeasure). Compensating for the sleeve for that reason. Not drastic...specific reason you wouldn't slim it?

 

Ok, while we are at it, rank fabrics in order of preferences (also nays)?

Agree strongly with this. I guess I am in the camp that anything worth doing in matters sartorial is worth doing well. Once the concerns about precise tailoring, construction and other things that we worry about with CM are no longer factors (I suppose construction of casual trousers could be a factor), however, I can see how a less expensive product could satisfy. For me, though, I never enjoyed wearing sweaters / dressing casually until I had some nice stuff to wear. I love wearing my Inis Meain stuff as much as my tailored clothing, just in different contexts.

Are we still styling @Claghorn? Clags, what do you have that's not navy or blue? I know you've posted this before, but help me remember...seems like you could use some summer stuff. Do you have any non-blue linen? Also are you still getting stuff made for you or is that over now that you're not next to BnT anymore?

I like 3,4,6 a lot.

^These two.

Micro houndstooth is for suit IMHO. HB is too bright for fall/winter and too heavy for summer. Donegal is my favorite, but a little hard to trouser with. Navy/blue checks is pretty good, but blue seems a little bright in that photo. Might be a lot better IRL.
