Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 219

Yes it's the cost of the suit. Don't know what portion of that price corresponds to the cloth itself, but the suit is kinda inbetween MTM and bespoke, so I guess not much.

I know people who paid more than that for a 2pc suit length... suboptimal.

I have the price list at home for H&S, if I recall their basic cotton is in the $50-60 a yard range for cut pieces but if your tailor bought an endbolt or discontinued piece, it would be about 50% cheaper.

Was 95 and humid, but I was able to keep the jacket on much of the day...and once I was back in AC, very comfortable.

Yes, some old stock from my tailor. Also did a navy with red paisley for the suit he is making me now.

I'd do the bottom left. Blends in the most seamlessly and the fabric already stands out enough.

I think the light one would also work but the two dark, definitely not.
