Good choice on this commission, and I'd echo the above. I dislike super small herringbone, and, at least for me, the larger scale tends to skew casual.

DWW, any recs on a navy nailhead, lighter weight (9-10 oz.)?

Corcos seems to cut a short jacket for sure.

I don't know about that specific weight, but all the usual names have nailheads. Smiths, Lesser, Harrison, etc. Just check Harrison's website.

If I could try a new tailor from anywhere in the world right now, it'd be A. Caraceni. Cool photo from Bespoke Wrinkles on his (presumably new) A Caraceni DB

First bespoke from a new tailor, pretty happy. There have been a couple changes since these pics (waist nipped in ever so slightly). First pic, excuse the sloppy trousers, they were not high up enough and as the waist was slightly too large, they were slipping down (were not too long). The second pic made me a little worried, as the back was not very tidy and the back of the arms also scruffy (tailor thought this was due to how I was standing at the time). Third pic is maybe a slightly more accurate reflection of the back when standing decently. Simple navy 13oz worsted wool three piece.

 

Cheers

Perfect timing for a casual suit made in vintage single width linen. The suit jacket is intended to be worn as sport coat as well.

Excellent stuff. Is this London Lounge linen?
post #1328 of 1722
It's not LL linen. Same half width woven by old looms, but slightly lighter weight. I sourced this length from Brio Beijing's vintage fabric collection.


(Another customer in the same Irish linen)

The body is great as my pants don't show much wrinkles by the end of the day. I also have experience with LL linen. Very similar. They are fantastic.

Brio Beijing is the store that hosts Sartoria Dalcuore (and many other tailors and craftsmen) in China. They have a nice "vintage fabric collection" where they find rare or discontinued fabrics and bring back to store.

So in business accounting terms, literally "unfunded liabilities?"
