post #796 of 1722

Murl picked a great fabric--really nice texture and depth and variegation of color. Looking forward to seeing the first fitting. I liked 7 1/2, but darker would be nice too.

Thanks for the help! The button choice was the one thing I second guessed as I was driving home yesterday. I talked to Matthew today and we'll look at the options again at the first fitting.

Happy to do it! Fun day all around. Luckily (sort of) you've got some time to make final button choices.

 

Not really a bespoke project, but I ordered a MTM suit using Smith Riband SW5806. It's a really nice grey herringbone that showed none of the banding that too many herringbones suffer from. The scale is maybe a little smaller than I would have like, but I think it's going to make up really nicely.

Sorry for the crappy pic, just a quick snap from the atelier of Tailorable in Korea. A double breasted dark green flannel suit soon to be ready:

 


Also waiting for a lightweight summer guncheck jacket.

 

Regards,

That's going to look nice.

 

 

 

Can't wait to see a better picture of that, Oliver.  It looks great.

Basted fitting with Steed. Cloth is Portofino bamboo. Very pleased with how it made up. From this we'll be narrowing the shoulders a bit, sweeping the quarters slightly and extending the lapel.

^ That looked great when Edwin showed it to me and Murl. Took photos of that and another of the bamboo swatches in the book.

Wow. There must have been ~10 SFers at steed this weekend.

Yeah, I really liked that one. Thought hard about getting it.

It came out very nicely. The swatch actually had a bit of "white noise," as it was put to me, that had me slightly concerned, but the whole jacket resolved nicely. Certainly something I can wear for business and weekends come Atlanta August (which is exactly what I was after).

There's a lot of overlap, I suspect.

...and let us not forget that Voxsartoria likely commissioned 50% of Steed creations headed to America before SF or LL jumped in.

He had something clever to say about that on my IG feed.
