Had a fitting today with Edwin and Matthew in NYC. The garments couldn't have been better and really looking forward to receiving them this Fall. Items were a double breasted dinner suit with shawl collar, London Lounge Agnelli tweed 3-piece suit and Lumb's Golden Bale double breasted.

The airforce blue Agnelli or the grey? What type of vest?

The gray tweed one...I decided to add lapels to a single breasted vest. Should be great.
post #1867 of 2416
Cool. I assume notch lapels? Looking forward to see how it makes up. I have a length of the airforce blue but am undecided how to make it or by whom.

Just seen this on Karl Matthews new website

www.atravellingtailor.com469

Interesting!

I am never inspired by seeing a suit on a mannequin.
post #1870 of 2416
Every suit tends to look better than it is on a sharp pointy-shouldered mannequin. Unless the guy who wears that is 8 ft tall, it's not like you're going to see it from the "imposing looking upwards" angle like in the photo anyway.

The person who remains seated while those around him/her stand might see it from this angle.

Alghough I remain a 'citizen at home' ... I do enjoy looking in and reading from time to time.

The one thing I can say about Karl's suit is that I like the one button closure.

The angle is similar to the ones shown on the A&S website. Perhaps that had something to do with it?

You can tell nothing about the fit of a jacket by looking at it on a mannequin. Including those on the A&S site.

When walking along Savile Row -- past say H. Huntsman, Richard Anderson, Henry Poole, etc. -- it's the angle at which one looks into the windows.

I've seen them and they are exceptional. LL tweeds and flannels are really good. I was in Canada this week and it dropped down to 18 degrees, you could use some of those LL tweeds and flannels.
