Interesting discussion. With the first suit, I wanted something to replace the ill fitting navy suit I had and with Tom's recommendations on material and details, this was the result (which I am very happy with):
The suit is darker than it appears in the photo and the material has some texture to it which makes it interesting to my eye so this is my version of the standard navy suit. It will be something I can wear for work, weddings and other formal occasions. The material will be plain coloured but textured and the details like the cut, shoulders, pockets and lapels will the little things that make it stand out. I'm not bothered about the handstitching and other extra details like that.
I want the next one to fill in the role of a dark conservative suit. Plestor, I'll be wearing this one as much as I wear my mid grey suit - the blue one will will still get worn the most simply because I can wear the jacket and trousers separately or together. I have a few odd jackets that work well with the blue trousers and the blue jacket looks good with my grey wool and flannel trousers. I doubt I'd be able to (or want to do that with this commission.
