Wondering if anyone has any experience with how the Cape Horn bunch compares to the Classic Worsted compares to the City of London stuff.
Trying to make some decisions here and I'm enough of a noob that they all seem roughly the same to me ...
I'm in NYC, so bear that in mind.
Most of the Cape Horn stuff I'm looking at is around 11oz. Also eyeing the Perennial Classics, but they seem a little light.
Bear in mind that when it gets really hot I typically won't wear a suit at all. This is more of a fashion choice, less of a required for work choice. :-)
I recently commissioned a winter suit and my tailor and I decided on Holland & Sherry 13oz worsted.
This suit is for crisp autumn/winter days and as I wanted a heavier weight cloth that would drape well and resist wrinkling I am confident that we made the right decision.
It is always difficult to imagine a suit made up from a swatch and the experience of others must be called on.
I will post pictures in the bespoke thread at various stages of fittings.
