EDIT: pls don't message me asking me to buy jacketings on your behalf. I'm not a cloth merchant. Just sharing pictures smile.gif

Sherry Kash has some nice patterns for jacketings. Hopefully this helps some of you guys who find it hard to browse H & S's offering:

Hello all,

 

I am looking to have a tailor make copies of some trousers and a jacket I have. I would love to just have them made Bespoke locally but for the time being I cannot meet the prices. I know that a quality fit is of the utmost importance, and that any price is worth the right fit, but I am hoping to cut down on my costs a bit.

 

I would want to start with one pair of Trousers and one sportcoat. From there I would expand based on the results. All pieces would be CMT as I have the cloth already to be shipped.
 

Not sure if this is the right place to post, if not please direct this newbie to the right place. Any suggestions, experiences, and or recommended tailors contacts would be great.

 

Thank you,

 

David-

Has anyone made up LL shirtings? Very tempted by a few of them but haven't had a chance to handle any of it, would be interested to hear out any feedback from users.

Looks like regular shirtings to me. Not sure about the feel of it, and how it wears etc.

Here is one of mine. The cloth is really nice, it's slightly heavier than G&R my default for linen shirtings.

All of the above shirts look very nice, thanks for sharing those pictures. Tchoy, would you say that LL linen is too heavy for hottest summer days? You mentioned that it is slightly heavier and that was actually my concern with it. I want the linen shirt to have some body and not be thin and see through but knowing that LL fabrics are heavier, I fear it might be too heavy and stiff.

It not too heavy at all what I was trying say is the cloth has more body and it's thicker than other linen. I am sure in time after a few wash it will become lovely and soft. It's definitely not see through.
I wore mine the past summer in Aus and I didn't hot at all and you all know how hot our summer gets.

Thanks, tchoy. That is good feedback, I will try to get a few shirtings. Any idea who makes LL linen shirtings? Which mill?
post #6432 of 11090
I don'e think you'll be disappointed with the cloth. Sent you a pm.

Completely agree with this. It's nice fabric albeit a bit pricey.

I've decided to be uncharacteristically realistic about what I'm likely to get made up in the next five years.

I have a jacketlength of the LL Coops 2 Tweed - in case anyone is interested.

I'd also sell my suitlength of the Slewfoot fresco. I love the stuff but a lighterweight brown suit doesn't quite fit into my life right now and probably won't for a while.
