I wonder if this cuffs paralleling issue can be corrected by having the same suit and shirt maker?

It's irrelevant if the makers are the same. It's something to catch and correct on the final fitting but happens when shipping the suit without a final. That's my experience.

The plaid coat and tattersall combination gdl is wearing in the pic in your digest is outstanding. That pic alone has me considering a run of tattersalls to complement some of my odd coats.

As for having lapels, that is what I have on all my jackets, one on either side. So far. That's how perverted I am.
Well... I am a bit disapointed about (i) you not been perverted and (ii) me beeing wrong.
All your jackets have lapels?! Two?! Whoa, I'm impressed rimshot.gif (of course I wasn't talking about the presence of lapels, but the style of the aforementionned lapels...)

Please don't. How would you be able to type messages on SF?

Whether hailing cabs, roughhousing with other members at meetups, fisticuffs with ruffians, eating oysters, or holding up an Android cell phone in a mens lavatory in front of a urinal for WAYWRN pics, this approach ensures a flawless presentation for the discriminating online audience.

I shall be in London later this winter and an A&S suit has always been a bucket list item for me after seeing an A&S inspired drape suit from Alan Flusser in the 80s. My concern is how to best manage the fittings as going to London is somewhat inconvenient for me.

I should be in the UK for a week this winter, if I commission a garment on Day 1, can they have a basted garment ready by Day 6 or 7? I can probably juggle the 2nd and final fittings, but a quick return to London for a basted fitting would be very difficult as I probably won't be able to return to the UK until early spring. Thanks for reading and your insight is appreciated.

Congrats on taking the plunge! Based on what I've read, it might be very difficult for A&S or any house to have a basted fitting ready in that timeframe. If A&S can't do it I would recommend contacting Steed to see if they can accommodate your schedule. Either way, no one can really answer your question except the houses themselves. Good luck!

I don't think that anyone can give useful answers to your questions other than A&S themselves. I am sure that they would be happy to answer your questions by telephone.

I was only hoping for some insight from real A&S customers, as this is probably nothing new to the posters in this thread. I wanted to see if anybody had a basted fitting within a week. I will be calling A&S just before I leave to see if it can be done or if would need to juggle a few things around if not. I have been thinking of this commission off and on for years now and pretty much have already figured out what I want: English worsted and classic A&S cut. I shall also check out Steed as well. Thanks again.

This was my first commission by them and I think they nailed it especially by having a one-piece-back and no front darts. The slight buckling below the blades is just about invisible when the coat is being worn and in motion. Look forward to wearing it in earnest this Fall!

If anyone wants to get his hands on this LL shetland, Michael Alden is gauging interest for another issue of the cloth. Contact him, I think it looks great. Corbera, do you have it made up?

I have my length still waiting to be made up.

Just got off the phone with Edwin regarding details for my 3-piece suit in the Agnelli Tweed. Already looking forward to next Winter!

^^You really shouldn't be making a suit out of it but rather sell me 2.5meters of it so that I can get a sport coat made. This way, we will both end up with a great sport coat from a great tailor biggrin.gif

David: that's nifty.

For those not on the Steed mailing list, Edwin and Matthew are running a special for anyone who acquires any of the London Lounge special cloth runs from Michael for making up at Steed.

Speaking of which, I wish that I could find a pants length of the old LL Best of Both tweed so that I can complete my incomplete suit in it.
