Sounds great, but since it's such great cloth, I can also see other colors work, such as green. I would also explore with Steed.

Well, yes. But I've posted this "shooting jacket" before...
It should be finished in a month or so, but as it's a fairly robust tweed it won't get worn until Fall at the earliest. I'm almost certainly gonna pay the balance for this jacket on Monday to lock in some advantage of the UK's misguided Brexit vote and the subsequent meltdown of their currency. I'll probably also strongly consider paying upfront form next commission with Steed, which will be a make up of the Minnis 656 houndstooth flannel.
I also have a DB jacket in Holland & Sherry tobacco linen on the way, but no pictures of that yet.
I hope you know of the function "follow thread". That way you can see when there's a new post, without having to open the thread and trouble your eyes and mind with the sight of big lapels...
Indeed. As my GF said: "but now you can never go back to OTR pants/shorts" - and I'm afraid she's right...
Yes, first experience with him and a very great one at that. I brought fabric, he measured me (loosely) and drafted my pattern directly on the fabric and cut it right away while the telephone was ringing furiously:
Came back 40 min. later for my first and only fitting and he had nailed it pretty much. He made some minor adjustments and I requested the waist to be lowered and the pants to be slightly longer as it is cotton that will wrinkle. After that he noted down all the details of my other commissions, and he said he would finish them in two weeks. I think it took around three, but two times he contacted me to ask me if my pants arrived safely. A very nice gesture I think. Anyway, I picked them up today and as stated I'm really impressed. Everything is spot on and exactly according to my requests. The shorts are also great even though I didn't even get a fitting while there, only agreed on the length by a chalk mark on my trial pair.
Other than that I will just add that Marco is a really, really cool guy and we got along very well although his English is quite limited. And I'm very happy to say that I think I have found my go-to for pants
How's the quality of Marco Cerrato compared to Pasquale Mola?
Ok, I will
I think usually he prefers a meeting in the morning and a fitting in the afternoon (only if you bring you own cloth, mind you) but in my case I had spent some time going through cloth books while he was busy cutting, so when I had decided on the fabric for my third pair of pants he said I was welcome to stay for half an hour while his wife was putting the pieces together. Instead I went for a coffee, and when I was back 40 min later the trousers were just being finished for my fitting.
