2) Are there reputable online sellers or do you shop locally?
3) If you live near DC and purchase cloth locally, could you share the location(s)?

I've seen a few sellers listing stuff on B&S but was hoping to find places that have more to offer. Apologize if this has been addressed already...my searches weren't turning anything up.

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Have a read through the cloth thread -

Yes, but most of it seems to cover what people are creating with their materials. But, will try to do an advanced search anyways.

Sometimes there is discussion of where to buy in there too.

Many of the merchants/mills have online shops, but really most of the time you won't save much if any money compared to sourcing it through your tailor (unless you're very lucky), so unless you're after something unusual that yours does not stock, you're probably better off just picking from the bunches your tailor shows you. Especially if you're new to bespoke - the tailor will have much better knowledge than you and will guide you through the choices, and will direct you to clothes he prefers working with.

Excuse me, what's the name of this cloth pattern?

 

 

 

Zegna calls it polka dot here, but I highly doubt that..

 

Thanks!

I purchased a nice big parka off of asos which I love the look and fit of but I just realised that there are no pockets near my hips where I would rest my hands. Is it possible to have it installed by someone. The outed shell of the parka is fairly hardy

Does anybody know the prices for the other Neapolitan tailors ie Sabino Panico Palermo?

 

I was looking at a decent fabric, maybe a Dormeiul or something.

Two questions:

1. What would I call the pattern of this suit (Brooks Bros Fitz, btw)?
2. What are my shirt options with this in terms of pattern matching. Today I'm wearing a light blue herringbone. Could I do a bengal stripe? A gingham?

Rather than wearing rainboots or snowboots, is wearing overshoes a good option for rain and snow (slush). It's extremely slippery wearing shoes with leather soles in snow conditions (flush and patches of frozen ice on the street)

 

something like this:

It isn't a bad idea but it hardly protects your trouser cuffs or ankles.

Can you show me some examples of decent looking snow boots or rain boots for work? 

post #26383 of 30740
In anything other than light drizzle or flurries I would wear real boots, and change into my shoes on arrival.

Relatedly I'm still looking for nice Wellingtons since I can't shake the idea that Hunters are only for girls.

Le Chameau make the best imho, although I wear Dubarry.

If you insist on the shoes being formal, you're better off trying to get some boots on an more elegant last with at least a dainite sole - commando sole would be better.
