Thanks dude

I know black tie is a rarified concern even for people on this forum, but I am in need of a recommendation for a good piqué tuxedo shirt. If not piqué I will consider other weaves. Any thoughts on good makers?

CEGO made me a voile tux shirt because it's often packed with people and hot at these events. Budd makes a RTW voile tux shirt.

Pique looks great but wears hotter for me. I only wear it for white tie these days.

Gitman makes a reasonable one, so does Carrot and Gibbs. If you have a shirtmaker close by, thats probably the way to go and wont be far off RTW pricing if you dont go crazy with the fabric.

On the plus side his son admired the handiwork on the Formosa, claiming that he would charge 'over $10,000' if he made something similar (er, no thanks)
Wow! That's good to know. I knew they wud charge me $3k for a suit but his opinion on the Formosa sounds good.
And I like your BnT suits but you look better in a Formosa to my eyes (probably one of the few who looks exceptionally good)...

Mmmm linen






Mmm blue



Sebastian, your first commissions look very nice. The back on both looks incredibly clean. I love the green linen, although I think that the blue better indicates the quality of the tailoring - which looks to be incredibly agreeable to my eye.

It looks like the jackets fit extremely well, they are flattering, and they do not stand out. I think it is exactly what bespoke should be smile.gif. Congratulations, I hope you are very pleased!

If thats the Drapers WSL, I just got some pants done in that fabric. Really nice. 

 

Dat collar roll!

I pressed the collars on my jacket... with my steam iron.
post #34375 of 37396
Sebastian those are fantastic
post #34376 of 37396

Very good stuff.

post #34377 of 37396
Thanks everyone for the comments.

There are a few tweaks I'll make for my next BnT commissions (as expected) - there's a small amount of tightness under the arms and across the chest (barely noticeable but enough to address next time)

I'll take some better pics of the blue suit today

Cross post, any comments, do you think the trousers are severely too short? What do people think of the outfit in general? People don't seem to like my flannel db very much, would be interested hearing what the main issues are.

Too short?  Yes.  "Severely"?  Define, please.

 

I doubt people will be able to confidently evaluate the jacket given that pose.

 

Cheers,
