hi Styleforum people,
Would like to hear any comments or feedback on a bespoke project I got going on right now. I will update photos after my next fitting. My apologies for the low quality phone photos.
this is my second bespoke suit with my tailor who is 78 years old, from Napoli, and this time I'm going with an unlined Irish linen, I bought 3 meters of this material: http://merchantandmills.com/products/cloth/gravy-linen-chambray/
I'm really happy with how its coming together and I think the result will be incredible.
Photos are from the first fitting, where we decided on the button stance, checked shoulders / waist, measured sleeves. There is a lot more to go...
- notchel lapel - 7cm
- 2 button (slightly higher stance)
- patch pockets
- unlined, except for sleeves and shoulders
- 2 vents
- no structure, but he'll use a little bit of glue-fabric to make it rigid (which is in every "unconstructed" jacket - he pulled apart my j.crew one and showed it to me)
- no belt loops on pants (I think this is awesome)
This first photo is from the linen supplier's site
