What are Steed's price points like?

post #2147 of 2416
Thanks guys! It was a fun article to do as Jay is an awesome guy.

Steed price points are around 2500 GBP for a suit I believe.

With the shoulder business going on in the NSM thread, I asked Tom Mahon today where he sets his jackets' shoulders to, and found out a couple of interesting things. Apparently, old-school A&S would extend the shoulder out to the outer curve of the upper arm (the outside of the triceps?), and he's cut his back over time because old jackets would look droopy after a while. On my jackets, it feels like the seam of the scye is just inside the acromion.

Also, Jony Ive is a fran of teh drape:

Nice, Winot...if you do have bigger photos, please do post them. I confess to having some reservations about the back near the arms...can't tell exactly from the small photos.

I like how on my Steed jackets the shoulder seam sneaks juuust over the edge of my shoulder for a little extension. I think it makes the jacket a bit more dramatic and balanced. I like how the shoulder seam and sleeve are nicely lined up together as a result.

Vox posted this on his blog and, obviously, took it down soon after.

If I'm not mistaken, it's made of the "Slewfoot brown fresco". Could you share some information about this fabric, Slewfoot?

Looks like the tobacco fresco, no?

Coincidently I am also making the same freaco up as a DB.

It was a tobacco brown fresco fabric I organized as a custom run from Minnis about a year ago. It's in their standard 12/13oz weight just in a new color. Turned out well and most people seem to like it.

Looks like another winner in the making.

Not sure what you mean here, but it certainly doesn't speak for drape (disclosure: not an apple fan).

I think you are being too modest; have only seen people rave about it here.

Very nice, indeed beautiful, unusual colour which I would have called chocolate, but if tobacco is correct, I'm willing to differentiate. The photograph previous to the most recent presents a slovenly shirted person who needs a shave.

I thought it was a fun factoid.

Got it - took that the wrong way.
