Definitely a +1 on #2...I may have missed the start of this run, but I would want in for sure if it is a heave weight flannel.  

 

I seem to recall a Fox Flannel in brown too, did that come to fruition or did it stall?

 

Thanks,

You do realize I was being sarcastic, right? I find it ugly.

I know there is a thread dedicated to Ercole on SF, but I wanted to pose my question here. Is there any specifics I should know or "house style" he makes? Any suggestions or comments on his work? I have set up a meeting but I really don't know much about his service.

 

I am still trying in the very beginning stages of converting my OTR wardrobe to Bespoke, and really haven't landed on a tailor. I could post to other forums I am sure, but I like the responses I get here from the UL thread. You fellas seem to know your way around tailors, more than most anyway. 

 

Thanks in advance,

If you say nothing you will get a trim fitting suit with medium weight chest piece and probably about 1/4" to 1/2" shoulder pads and a very slight rope at the sleevehead. He tends to cut his jackets a tad short.

Sorry to sidetrack, but I thought your name looked familiar, and it just occurred to me that I'm wearing one of your ammo straps right this moment.

As I walked past Richard Anderson this morning they had a lovely sportcoat made from the Ardalanish diamond twill fabric. I would have taken a photo but I was on the 'phone at the time.

Haha, enjoy in good health!

Patrick,

 

Thank you for your help! As a big man, 48R, I tend to lean towards soft shoulders. I played football all my life, so my shoulders have a fair amount of sloping to them, and I if they are roped it may give me the wrong shape.

 

Is a softer shouldered coat in his range? Should I specify this or let him do his thing?

 

Again this is still new to me, I want to make sure I let him work, but I also wouldn't benefit from a roped shoulder and nipped waist.

All of my suits have no shoulder pads from him. I would just communicate any concerns or considerations with him upfront.

Perhaps a bit simple for this thread, but does anyone have a recommendation for a navy worsted for a staple suit (11-13 oz)? I need to replace mine.

If it's a staple suit, I would go lighter than a 13oz. Try Smith's Blue Riband, Lesser's 11oz., or Harrison's Frontier (which is 10oz.).

What is difference between 11 oz and 13 oz for a work horse suit? Wouldn't you want to go as heavy as possible in terms of the suit lasting a long time? I thought you were suppose to buy suits in terms of fabric types for the season.

Weight, longevity, and even warmth don't have perfect correlations.
