@Cao Cao those suits look good. I agree with @sugarbutch, upper leg on pants need some kind of alteration. they may be too baggy

Thx, JRD. I will go w/ the "don't do anything" advice on them Fromrosa suits. Move on.

I plan to take full advantage of the "anything you want" card on my fast approaching birthday. And no, I am not spend that card on a suit supply suit.

I think a basted fitting in Korea should count.

Some quick snaps from my first BnT fitting. Note my dear photographer was feeling lazy and took them sitting down, so the angles are distorted (ie jackets look too short)

Looking good @sebastian mcfox. Please keep us updated and make sure to tell us about your experience with BnT. I'm getting married next yer and am contemplating getting my suit from BnT. Trying to choose between BnT, NSM, Corneliani or Belvest. From what I've seen, BnT's work is the most appealing to me.

Edit: are you getting a suit + SC?

Thanks Don

Yes, I'm getting a blue hopsack suit and Drapers green green SC

Considering this was the first fitting, I was very impressed with how well the basic structure of both jackets and the suit pants fit. When I tried the jackets on they looked slim in the mirror but provided absolute freedom of movement. I love the higher rise of BnT pants, it covers up the 'longer-torso, stumpy-legs' thing I have going

Sounds good. How much time does the whole procedure take and how many fittings are required, if I may ask?
post #31568 of 37408
It looks like there will be an initial consultation, two-three fittings, and a final collection, each about 4 weeks apart

But note this is with BnT's Sydney rep, so mileage elsewhere may vary

Any more details you can share on the green Drapers fabric? I'm planning to commission another jacket from BnT this winter and I'm thinking of an S/S jacket in a dark green similar to yours, either in a linen or wool hopsack. Thanks.

I have ideas, but it's still early.

It's Drapers linen hopsack - I can't remember the exact fabric, but it's the same one used for the green linen SC on BnT's Tumblr. Joe knew immediately which fabric I was looking for
