Darting is like 10. Hemming is 12-15, sleeves about 20? Give or take a couple of bucks.
Mine didn't so I gave up.
I've only recently started getting some bespoke clothes made, so I know very little about how these things are done. In the past, I have (sporadically) had MTM clothes made, but have always squirmed and even been horrified at the results.
So, after lurking and searching through Styleforum for a short time, I decided to take a leap at the top end of the bespoke tailoring spectrum and I managed to find a really good bespoke tailor, who has made a suit and some shirts for me that actually make me look very smart (this was NOT an easy task). Now that he has my pattern, I feel very comfortable about getting more clothes from him (and certainly intend to do so).
However...there seem to be also one or two other top-end bespoke tailors in my hometown who also seem to have very good reputations on Styleforum. Is there any etiquette about one keeping a strictly monogamous relationship with one's bespoke tailor at any one time? Or is it common practice to get different bespoke clothes made by different bespoke tailors in the same city all at the same time?
Cheers and thanks for any advice.
I'm possibly getting a MTM suit done for my wedding in June. All of the fabrics the tailor was showing me were "summer weight" 8.5oz or less. I found one I really like but it's only 7oz and based on what I've read really light fabrics don't drape or hold up their shape as well. I expressed this concern to the tailor but he more or less scoffed and said that isn't the case, it's dependent on the fabric and the weave, not the weight.
Durability doesn't bother me much as I very rarely wear suits so this is a wedding and special occasion thing but poor drape and shape retention would. Should I be looking for a heavier fabric or is the tailor right and I shouldn't be particularly worried?
If it matters the fabric is a Reda 95% wool, 5% cashmere
It's defnitely done and as with many things, is sometimes done well and sometimes not. If my rear blade is longer than the front, but the front is long enough, I often just leave it. No need to hide it!
Does anyone have knowledge of Michael Kors blazers that are made in Canada?
Most everything I see from Kors I hate; they seem cheap and made in China, etc. The reason I ask is there was a grey herringbone blazer in Nordstrom 60% off and it seemed to fit well off the rack. 100% wool, made in Canada, and my little knowledge of construction wants to say it isn't fused, maybe 1/2 canvas but I can't say for sure.
Just hoping someone can chime in on whether or not there are any above average models from Michael Kors and if the Canadian ones are worth considering. Price was $160
