Ercoles does alterations, but he's a bit pricey, much better work though, if its an expensive OTR garment, I would take it there

I've used them for Zegna and Corneliani suits and was very pleased.

Thanks guys! And how about someone able to make a bespoke vest with a turnaround time of 3 weeks including a fitting? Ercole's? Anyone else?

Three weeks is tight, but I'd say Ercoles again. If anyone can do it, they can.

Wedding attire disaster that needs sorting out?

For the same cost and less time, albeit a tad more inconvenience, one might fly to Hong Kong.

Really? Would anyone ever fly to HK to get a vest made?

Depends on how badly one needs fast service. I make no judgments.

There used to be Savile Row shops that would promise entire suits in one week. No big deal if you have a spot in the queue.

This might be a stupid question, but how do you order that Fresco?

 

 

email them at info@huddersfieldcloth.com - 

 

 


This may be a very novice question, I was looking at HFC site, and found mohair, trisco, wool blend cloth.   I googled Trisco but could not find out what it really is.  Is it a kind of synthetic material?  I appreciate if anybody can tell me what it is.  Thanks

Other than the wool and mohair there's a synthetic (polyester) component. 'Trevira' is a trademarked name for a bunch of polyesters- make in Germany I think.

Hi all, I am thinking of making a light or mid grey odd trousers from the Finmeresco range. Is it a good idea? Can anyone tell me the ref number for a suitable shade of grey from the Finmeresco book?

I am thinking of Finmeresco trousers too.   I just got this image, which may be too dark for your needs.
