Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 1211

post #18151 of 19918
Uncertainty, I suppose. Not hugely interested in paying top dollar (bespoke) for a casual suit, and not entirely certain if some more economical options (various MTM) would have accessibility issues.

Obviously, if the latter is a non issue, then I'd have no qualms sourcing fabrics via a tailor/MTM option.

Let me know if you guys are interested! Should I set up a separate thread for this? 

Of course, we can design another colour. I do love the tobacco that dieworkwear came up with though. Maybe with a slight hint of red or black specks. What do you guys think? 

You want to look like a UPS worker?

Tell me about it. You should see the pagoda-shouldered, peak-lapeled numbers my UPS driver shows up to the door in these days.

Life post leaving Rubinacci most be be difficult for Gennaro Paone if he needed to take a UPS gig. Didn't realize the career trajectory was from lead cutter to driver.

Well, somebody has to deliver the suits, right?? Cut out the middleman.

u may not be aware that @Slewfoot did an earlier run (2011?) of tobacco Fresco with a little red in it that   @dieworkwear's run deliberately avoided, so u could rerun that.  Look for pics of Vox, NewYorkIslander.   I use the jacket  more than the suit.   Unusual colors and patterns are hard to get for a reason.

I'm all in for a 3 piece length of Slew's tobacco sees a revival.

Here is another fabric of interest (center). The rest are garbage.

Interesting. Is it a loose weave, but tightly spun? Wondering if this is my grail cotton cloth.

Does the Cotton/Cashmere need to be dry cleaned only?

 

Never seen such combo before.

Ask @incontro what it is.

 

Not sure what's wrong (in your mind) with the other fabrics in that photo. They all look interesting.

Fairly certain it's Eurotex fine cotton, the infamously unavailable.

The others ones are baby poop colored. And I think this confirms what Manton said about patterned linen.
