Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 428

Maybe he was trying to match the patterns. I've seen a few in the wild, in plain fabrics, and I recall the pockets placed closer.

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.

I am selling 2 meters of the Carlo Barbera for H Lesser jacketing if anyone is interested.

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.

Bought jacketing lengths of these today:

First two are not bad, last three look like suiting to me.

The last is the same as the fourth, though it appears different.

The third looks like this below, except as opposed to the brown being woven against a white background, it's woven against navy.

I'd have to silence you if I told you. rotflmao.gif

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.

Link to catalogue here -- http://www.dormeuil.com/en/cloth-collection/detailed-collection/best-sellers/amadeus-jacketings/

*There's smth seriously wrong with this forum. I type catalogue and it tells me it's a spelling error and that the correct spelling should be 'catalog'. Bah!

Thanks - silence can be golden....

I do almost all CMT with my local tailor as well so am always looking for potential sources of good fabric.
