Ha! Glad you like it. I've always wanted a tweed suit and this seems like something I can actually pull off and the fabric looks sturdy for trousers.

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.

I won't tell you what's in the package I'm about to send Edwin in that case.

But in all seriousness, if I come across anymore of the Best of Both I'll let you know.

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.

I've not had that done-- it might be possible but would take some planning. At this point, I go straight to forward fitting and except for a few sleeve errors or weight changes I really haven't needed a second look at what they do.

A&S might actually be more able to do that than Steed or some of the smaller houses, as they have a lot of guys on staff and in their work pool. Edwin has a much smaller crew and is very organized about setting up his quarterly rhythm for US visits-- a rush job might well throw his system out of whack. Of course, he comes to the US 4 or 5 times a year, so if you miss a basted fitting in London you won't have to wait long here (if you are in the US, that is). And Steed does do fine work.

Butler, you're awesome. I hope I look as good as you someday. Btw, the guy who I yelled Butler at. I guess he lives near me because I have been seeing him about twice a week on my street.

But yours won't be as loud as Butler's suit smile.gif
Are you doing hacking pockets as well?

I could never pull off what Butler did! I'm doing flap pockets and ticket pocket and a straight vest with no lapels. That's just how I roll.

Great suit.
God, I miss winter.

Steven has done a great job on that suit Butler! I love that cloth as well, I think I remember seeing it on our Johnson's bunch...I also saw a gentleman on the tv wearing a suit with the same cloth. Bold choice but a great one! 

 

Best,

Thanks gentelmen - glad you like it - so do I smile.gifcheers.gif

Apart from fit etc. i'm especially impressed with SH's pattern matching:

Arm to coat - coat to waistcoat - waistcoat to waistcoat lapels - waistcoat to trousers - coat to trousers
