On the silhouette, I try to do enough research on the firm ahead of time that I have a pretty good idea how their jackets are shaped. Length, DB overlap buttoning point, lapel height, etc., can be adjusted at fitting. But if I want something much different, I just go to a different tailor.
Have put the cart before the horse by buying these fabrics before asking about them, but if anybody has experience with Dormeuil Amadeus' Jacketing range, input would be appreciated.It matters because I'll give it to a different tailor depending on how it'll make up. I find it near impossible to find brighter shades and more defined checks from HFW, Lesser, Harrison's etc at the sweet 10-11 oz spot, and so turned to Dormeuil for jacketing.
No personal experience - would be interested in what othr people have to say. May I ask your source?
I'd have to silence you if I told you.
JK. You can buy them from Dormeuil, though I only do CMT when visiting tailors who are not likely to have the fabrics I want. I'm going to HK in June so I'm probably going to bring these there to have a tailor make it up, or I'll have Mina make them up. I purchase them from all over -- from friends, and mostly from tailors who get preferential trade prices.
