If your legs are buff, this is not necessarily a problem.


Damn, will have to remember to wear that suit only after sunset.

Is anyone doing a suit up with the tobacco Fresco that Slewfoot came up with? I wonder what it'll look like as a suit.

I saw that, but I'd like to see how one wears the suit as an ensemble.

A soon-to-be-unfunded liability: I'm getting married at around this time next year, and I'd like to go bespoke. However, although I'm quite fond of the tailcoat, I can't justify the outlay for something that (unfortunately), I won't be wearing very often. Hence, I'm planning to order a three-piece peak lapel suit, and striped trousers. Hence, I'can use the jacket as a stroller, but will also be able to use it later on as a business suit. It will be a relatively warm occasion, so I had been looking at the lighter options of the Dugdale formalwear book. Would the combination of a dark charcoal self-stripe (for the coat) with the bold stripe for the trousers?

Looking to trade or sell some of my Lesser stuff I've stockpiled. I have a suit length (4 yards) of a Brown Glen Plaid, and 2.25-2.5 yards of sport coating (teal with a rust windowpane in 4 ply, and a nice warm lambswool-like dark Blue plaid. Looking for Navy Flannel for the suit length and a mid grey fresco for the two Sportcoatings. Or I'd sell the suiting for $400 plus shipping, sportcoating for $200 plus shipping each.

I'm trying to decide between some different Dugdale fabrics. Anyone have any experience with the charcoal birdseye 12-13oz (9743) or the dark grey birdseye 13-14oz (9425)? I was also considering the cashmere blends but I think they are too lightweight and not worth 4x the price. I really like the suit fabric in the picture below, but not sure if it'd be closer to the dark grey or the charcoal. Anyone seen any of these Dugdale fabrics in person? The pictures on their online shop seem really dark and unlike the real product. Also included is a picture of the Dugdale 9743; what do you think?

Not a bolt of cloth, but can anyone tell me what this fabric would be called? Basketweave, hopsack, or something else?

Gentlemen
I am considering commissioning a suit for my wedding through Mina @ Napoli Su Misura and would love to get your thoughts regarding an appropriate suiting. As for some context, my other "nice" suit is a navy birdseye and I was hoping to achieve 2 things with this new suit: have something appropriate for my own wedding; broaden my suit wardrobe.

As such, I was considering a grey/charcoal suiting, perhaps with a herringbone weave. What do others think of such a selection? Is it appropriate for the goals above? Any other considerations I have left out?

The configuration would be a slightly conservative double vented, notch lapel, flapped pockets (as much as I enjoy patch pockets), 3r2

Thanks in advance!

KJ

I think a charcoal herringbone would be a good choice, however I would get a gabardine, serge, or plain twill. You can never have too many basic solids.

If are wearing silk longjohns, this is not necessarily a problem.
