Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread - Page 465

post #6961 of 11427
Thanks vodking for the link. In the FB page, it is said combined luxury and comfort. But I am actually looking for casual and more surface texture. Even the minnis Fresco 520 looks not casual enough for the purpose. Hope someone can share some real life experience maybe?

Does anyone know of a relatively low-cost tailor in New York City that does CMT work for suits? I am going to be living out there, and I want to have a suit made from some of the fabric that I've found on this thread. I am unlikely to find a similar pattern in any bespoke/MTM tailor's catalog.

Does anyone know where I can get this fabric from? Similar to one of the LL shetlands but different colour I reckon.

True, the moonbeam range has sommething quite similar. However, I think you should join my quest for a reissue of the LL-version biggrin.gif

Cheers,

Straight up, or do you have to have it turned into a shirt?

A very assertive one, to be sure. A SB suit could also do duty as a SJ.

I am probably going to have NSM make up the POW. With NSM pants, I find wearing neither a belt nor braces is best. The waistband is so soft naturally and stretchy that wearing a belt gets in the way. Neapolitan pants don't look right with braces.

I have trouble imagining their trs accomodating braces, although I think Will has commissioned something for that. Belted waists look super, however.

I always worry about having neither available.

For me, this fabric represents two problems. The first is that it is neither fish nor fowl, not bold enough for a patterned sportcoat but not sedate enough for a suit (unless you live on an English country estate). The second is that it is a grey sportcoat. For a grey odd jacket to work, it has to have a lot of surface interest (donegal) or be a loud pattern, like a grey/black large scale PoW. In that pic, other than wearing it with jeans (which I hate, sportcoat/jeans/dress shoes), what are you going to wear it with? Grey pants are out. You can wear brown, but it has to be a light color, maybe a cream flannel. Shirt has to also be a light blue or white, a medium blue would be too much. Basically, any outfit in which you wear that jacket, you could have easily worn something a lot better foo.gif

I wonder if I should make the Ambrosi styled super-long waist band that goes into the belt loop. Is it useful or just a fad?
