I was going to reference an old New Orleans spiritual (Perfectly apt for this early part of the Mardi Gras season), but the gender of the tailor is wrong.[/quote]


What?

You want to stop by and see the light weight Solaro samples?

My father was a tailor and the first jacket he made for me was that twill pattern in cream and cinnamon. It was fantastic. This picture brought back memories of wearing that jacket.

Does anyone else think the lower picture looks like Jodie Foster when she madeTaxi Driver ?

Thanks and will look into the Scabal. Glad it brought back memories. I see the Jodie Foster comparison.

Trust me that it's high. I can barely see the top of the gorge in the mirror as it's almost shooting beyond my shoulder line.

Romy Schneider never looked like Jodie Foster to me. She was a bit prettier imo. Great actress who passed away way too young. But I see what you mean.

I am actually a bit worried of the rationalization of Smith Woollens catalogue, in particular their formal book

Hopefully we can access to their products more easily now.

I'm trying to decide what type of fabric I want for my first semi-bespoke solid charcoal suit, to be used for business affairs in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm thinking of the following:

-Solid Charcoal
-Smooth worsted "hard finish"
-10-12oz
-slight amount of surface interest
-Don't want twill, herringbone, or hopsack
-Most likely from Smiths Woolens

What I'm less sure about is the specific type of weave I want. I've seen samples, but not being experienced in this area, it's hard to translate a sample into how the full suit would look and feel. What I would like is for the weave to complement the characteristics that I'm trying to project: sophisticated, smooth, business (think Harvey Specter). Any tips? Thanks.
