Looks nice Slew, I am not a fan of the color but the jacket is nicely made. Maybe a tad too long due to it being worn unbuttoned. Is the cloth even thicker than corn shetland? I don't think I could handle anything thicker than that corn shetland. What else is in the works? smile.gif

The color is actually a brighter blue than in the photographs. Here's a closeup that is pretty true to life in sunlight. The blue colors have even more depth though in person. If you're a fan of blues in general I think you'd like this. The coat is the same length as all my others. It's MUCH thicker than the Corn shetland, but it doesn't seem to wear too much warmer. The Corn shetland I think wears particularly warm.

I also received a DB suit of the LL POW blue/gray Brisa. Won't be able to do photos of that anytime soon I doubt.

Happy Holidays!

Part of the benefit of living in a place with cold winters is the ability to play around with cloths like this.  Despite the rich beauty of the cloth, for some reason, this cloth looks "scratchy" - is that the case?  Or is it actually quite soft?

Looks very nice, Slew.

 

Would love to see the Brisa.

Hi folks - looking for some advice. I am planning to spurge on a suit and has just about decided on using an A&S expat. All of my suits and sportcoats are currently OTR and of the soft-shouldered Italian variety (Caruso, Corneliani, Isaia, Sartoria Partenopea). I have an athletic build (9-10" drop) and of modest height (5'7").

It would be greatly appreciated if anyone could outline some of the pros and cons of the tailors that travel to NY on a regular basis - my top concerns aside from fit are price and accessibility (I'm still not comfortable with the fact that their home base is in the UK). Thank you in advance.

I've found the accessibility of Steed very convenient. It really doesn't feel like they are so far away with the number of times they come per year (on average 4). Steed is much cheaper than A&S and I believe cheaper than Mahon. Not sure about other Ex-Pats who travel. I highly recommend Edwin and Matthew. Feel free to PM me with any specific questions.

Thanks and Happy Holidays!

The infamous one-piece-back courtesy of Edwin and Matthew DeBoise of Steed. Works nicely while in Burgundy.

An FYI: Steed will be visiting San Francisco on Saturday, April, 13th, then leaving Tuesday, April 16th. The hotel location is to be determined. They'll be returning every three months after that for fittings.

If there's enough interest, they may also add San Francisco to their permanent travel itinerary.

You made it happen!

 

How many trips do they have scheduled so far?

D, I really wish you'd move to ATL so you could rally tailors to visit like you've done in SF... nod[1].gif

I wish that he could rally my bank account so that I could avail myself of one of those one-piece-back checked sportcoats that vox loved to show off. frown.gif

Out of curiosity, is there a functional benefit of a single piece back? I visited my tailor today and I was thinking about what else to make up, and he suggested a single piece back. Remembered seeing it on Bill some time back, so I thought I must ask.
