I'm looking for some fabric recommendations, but as to not clutter up this thread unnecessarily I started a new thread here:

http://www.styleforum.net/t/316710/if-you-could-only-have-one-brown-tweedish-sport-coat/0_30

would love to hear input from those of you with any ideas.

There's this one that Gus (pocketsquareguy) got made up from NSM that I love and want to get myself.

So . . . today my wife gave me shit for all the visible hand stitching on a new NSM suit. As she observed:
the English guys don't do that and it looks much cleaner-this stuff is fine for casual, but you shouldn't wear it to work.

That's kind of a bummer, because I mostly agree with her, even though I like my NSM suit. I will still order more, but it is likely to be summer stuff, with my flannels and heavier cloths going to English tailors (if I ever bother . . I don't need more stuff).

Wow. Your wife clearly takes much more of an interest in your clothing than mine does in mine.

To be fair, I did ask her what she thought of my suit, since it was new; I am not sure she would have volunteered.. Also, she has lived with me for a while so she knows it is an intrerest of mine and I don't hesitate to comment on what she buys, so fair is fair. She has even had stuff made from Dege and Davies, so the subject isn't unfamiliar.

Your wife has solid taste, congrats

You may not need to write off flannel - the hand stitching somewhat disappears into the nap.

I hope my wife never becomes that astute with things like this (and I hope it's a long time before she's old enough to wear something from SR).

Was hoping to get some feedback from you guys. I have 2 pieces of H.Lesser 10oz, one in plain dark blue and the other is a dark grey with stripes (this one is from 1989). I'm planning to turn one of them into a 3 piece suit with peak lapels, roped shoulders etc ala a Tom Ford suit. Currently I'm leaning towards the plain dark blue one but would appreciate your thoughts on it.

 

I have 7 meters of the dark grey one and 4.2 meters of the plain dark blue one. I'm thinking it would be a waste if i went for a 3 piece in the dark grey striped Lesser as what is left over wont be enough for another suit.

I can't say for sure, but I am guessing my wife was younger than you are now when she got the first one - tweed sportcoat from Dege. The Davies coat was something she designed herself and is kind of a long black frock-coat like jacket with purple pinstripes and purple velvvet covered buttons. She wears it a lot.
