Failing that-

What is your current suit wardrobe? (Colors/patterns)

And what/how many suits are you going for.
You...already should know my wardrobe.
1. Navy Birdseye
2. Dark Blue Plaid
3. POW Flannel
4. Nailhead (wrong size)

Thats...all Ive got.

I will be visiting BnTailor next week. I am open to suggestions (pix preferred). I want a nice suit. I will have enough time for 2 fittings and they will ship me the finished product.

 

Here is a suggestion: go to BnT and do exactly what they tell you.

Judging by their works on tumblr, you are probably right.

RAF blue flannel perhaps? If you do something else in navy, a nice stripe could be a good plan. Harrison's Oyster is nice (probably a bit hot for DC summers, but what isn't?) too. Definitely let them do their thing, though.

Seconded on the RAF blue (maybe in fresco since you're in DC).  

 

The B&T instagram is full of good examples in that color.  I might just show them this pic and say "one for me too, please."

Is he looking for a summer suit? I live in DC and wearing any type of suit during this time will be miserable.

Check out Drapers 5 star as well they have some nice swatches. Why aren't you giving William field a try? You are pretty anal about how things fit, and having a tailor in your own back yard says a lot.

Given his knowledge of how to own twenty suits in varying shades of blue and his experience with B&T, this is a question for @Claghorn .

post #30669 of 37396
I am not looking for a seasonal. The summer of 2015 was...not too hot.

I like the raf @heldentenor. I am split on navy. My closest advisors have shot down a houndstooth.

I will give Field a try. But he starts at $4,000. It would be the most ideal place to go.

But since I am here in Seoul, why not BnT?

Straight navy or something just slightly lighter than navy (0520 color, though not fresco since you dislike it) if you are getting a jacket. Charcoal if you are getting a suit. Don't think about fabric until you actually see the swatches. Also ask to see works in progress to see if any fabric, after being made up, catches your eye. Kakao when you go.

I have you on speed dial @Claghorn

BNT 3 piece suits look quite nice. Good 3 piece suits are hard to find RTW.

If you use BnT I would suggest riding them out for multiple suits so they can refine your pattern.

Not interested in a charcoal or mid grey?( I'd consider the PoW a light/mid grey)
