I am yet to find a female who are willing to step into a tailor shop with me.
Nonetheless, enjoy your trip to Japan soon.

At the moment, what they have are far too light for me. I shall wait for next season.

I actually like bold tweeds that are, or at least look, more traditional but I can't help but recoil at everything I've seen from Dashing. Can't figure out what makes the difference for me - maybe the prominence of pink and purple as opposed to more earth-toney bright colors.

Fair enough. I happen to like a bit of pink and purple. But some of their more recent stuff is a lot more earthy - the Shetland and Explorer cloths in particular.

 

More to your liking will be the vintage Reid & Taylor tweed I just picked up form this forum... looks really nice. Now that will be a suit...

 

(thanks, bboysdontcryy!)

Despite being 90% sure about my cotton-cashmere trousering being Draper's, I was 100% wrong. Which was liable to happen 10% of the time. It's actually Scabal. I just had the fitting this morning, and it's fantastic. Makes up really beautifully, with a nice, soft, hand, and an easy drape - doesn't have the awkward zig-zagginess of the way 100% cotton falls. Highly recommend.

Did you get anything completed by Steed yet? Pics? Feedback?
post #6381 of 11381
Yes - this is a Steed coat. Very positive experience all around. Did you have any questions in particular?

post #6382 of 11381
Looks good, no questions just wanted to see how it came out. I am very pleased with their stuff and will have some fittings in their fall trip.

They're the same I just have one that's halfway tucked.

I know that, unbel. Y U NO LIKE JOAK?
post #6386 of 11381
Oops...long day, my sense of humor must be tired. I'm sure I'll be laughing about it tomorrow smile.gif

But back to my main point...Scabal cotton/cashmere. Check it out. For serious.

seems like it is pulling around the midsection
post #6388 of 11381

Sleeves seems to be a little short but its all down to personal preference.

post #6389 of 11381
Why the short sleeves Unbel? You like showing that much cuff?
post #6390 of 11381
The sleeves aren't really that short and it's not pulling in the waist. Here's another pic I took at some other point:
