If he's got a houndstooth in stock, he can take my money and the hardwood floors.

Is that when Ryan gets back in town? Are you talking about the houndstooth jacket they have on display?

While I have been to London before, this is a completely different trip with other preferences. Most important is placement and safety, of course. I would like it to be as central as possible at the best price possible (of course). Preferrably walking distance to central places (5-10 minutes). I will travel with siblings and wife-to-be and won't spend much time at the hotel, thus safety and position is of more importance than comfort. I don't require anything fancy, to make myself clear.

I will get back to you gentlemen later regarding places to visit etc later when I have a hotel booked. Thanks.

Doing a quick search of Expedia, for Mayfair and thereabouts, the least expensive hotel in the area at which I have stayed is the Hilton London Green Park, which is a very basic hotel, but is a half block off of Piccadilly, and a short walk to the Green Park tube stop, and a five to ten minute walk to Jermyn St. and the Piccadilly Circus area. Listed just above the Hilton Green Park was the Millennium Mayfair, in Grosvenor Sq. at which I have also stayed, which is a much grander hotel than the Hilton, but is less convenient to public transport, though closer to Oxford St.

I am somewhat puzzled by your concern for safety. Central London is a very safe place, by and large. One would need to go fairly far afield to find a bad neighborhood, certainly near tourist attractions.

Ryan is back like on Thursday.

Will Field is closed on Mondays, hence my statement to call him on Tuesday.

WM Fox did not have a houndstooth jacket on display in my size...well, Tony didn't know what a houndstooth looked like.

I don't know Tony. You are going to use Will Field now? Oh man, you are all over the place. If you really need some brown houndstooth I have some cashmere that I may part with.

Send me pix. It better not be 100% cashmere.

Field is the tailor that I have been going to all along. 

But his bespoke is just too expensive.

Hudson 40R. How's the fit? Definitely needs a fix around the upper neck for extra fabric to account for straight back/shoulders

Lazio 38R suit. Wool/silk/linen. Fit very well surprisingly or maybe it's the fabric

Both those suits look pretty clean tbh. Like in the ballpark but needing small alterations.

Fit is great, but do you like the fabric quality?

Which one fits better? Any comment on what alterations for the navy jacket?

Which fabric? Both seem okay. Not super luxurious, but acceptable.

The navy 40r Hudson is pure wool.
The 38r Lazio is the blend.

Strange how I fit 38 in Lazio and a 40 in Hudson.

It makes sense as the cuts are different. They fit you quite well. Hard to pick one of them though since they're so different and the suits don't fulfill the same purpose wardrobe wise.

Alright better pics of the Spier Mackay coat.  Too short?

Length looks acceptable from those angles.

Thank you. Those were taken about chest high. Would a lower angle be more telling?
