Designing a new suit - what details are you looking for? - Page 3

post #31 of 98
Thread Starter 
I started a new thread with a link to a brief 10 question online survey:

http://styleforum.net/showthread.php...67#post1038267

Thank you once again to all who have submitted their suggestions and comments. This has been most encouraging and insightful!

Yours Truly,

Ben

We finally started receiving shipments of our new and exclusive line of suits (hopefully shirts soon to follow and perhaps sweaters, outerwear and accessories shortly thereafter!).

While they are not yet ready for sale on our website, we thought you might like a preview and check out the little booklet which comes with each suit:

http://store.ehaberdasher.com/catalo...n-Booklet.html

Thank you all once again for helping me realize this dream and for all of your wisdom, input and advice!

Yours Truly,

Ben

Thanks... and I would echo your sign-off: "Failure is not an option. The alternative is complete financial Armageddon and a great depression... "

What is the price range?

Interior pocket for business cards, seems to be a "must have."

Ben - booklet looks great and suits look promising. Has the price point stayed the same? Wish the A$ hadn't tanked ...

Did you ever report the results of your survey from May?

Looks good. Would love to see more detailed pictures of the construction and fit. If it's still below the $500 range, I would definitely be up to make a purchase.

We have not yet decided whether we will offer a single pleated pant or a flat front pant. Fine details will likely include bemberg lining, corozo buttons, demi-luna reinforced pocket stitching, an inside chest pocket which opens UP and down to accommodate an airline ticket, and trousers will have an inner curtained waist band. We hope to introduce this new line exclusively on eHaberdasher.com and also on ebay later this year.

Just keep the pick-stitching subtle (or just don't do it).

Earlier I had promised to have them at under $500 - I will do this but only for the initial promotion as costs went up considerably. We will retail them for $599 and up to $759.99 (Super 150's 3-piece). Please keep in mind this suit is truly exclusive - this is not a mass-made garment that we simply slapped our own label on - this suit was made specific to our specifications, details and features. This was an extremely small production (less than 300 suits total) and only no more than 40 were made in any particular fabric (other than the solids which will be offered as suit separates). You will not find this same suit anywhere else.

No, never did. I wonder if there's an easy way to do that... I'll look into that as soon as I get a chance!

The pick-stitching is in contrast colors: pink, yellow, turquoise... just kidding. It is subtle - at least in my opinion. You may judge for yourself once we have them up on our site and include the detailed photos.

Side tabs: No

Ticket pocket: No

Forward pleats: again... No

(not doing so good here...)

38S: Yes! but only in suit separates (solids for the time being)

As I mentioned earlier, we may do a MTM/MTO program which might allow for the features you mentioned. One step at a time - we'll see...
