Shirt looks good from here. Are you sure you need a longer sleeve? The first picture the sleeve looks about right with a lots of wrinkles shortening the shirt. The second pic does make it look short though.

correct me if I am wrong but when I the sleeve is unbuttoned it should come down to your thumb knuckle correct? this one doesn't make it there and gets too short when I move me arm around

NOTE: Great idea to use the "jacket pants suit" in the title.

Definitely! I guess I was trying to estimate how far the sleeve would go when it would be starched and not so "bunched" as in the picture.

Anybody know what the hell this is?  Looks like gold fill, but aside from that, no clue.  This is about the size of a small matchbox or lighter.  This is not available until I figure out what on Earth this is, but might be afterward.

Any ideas?

A snuff box per chance?

Fabric, as a textile, comes with a significant cost to produce which someone pays for to stock and is not likely to lose money on. You're unlikely to find fabric on the cheap save for some exceptional circumstances, or someone that doesn't know what they have because they didnt pay for it. I don't know of a source that would provide you the type of price that someone posting in a thrift store thread would call 'cheap'. Remember we're the people that balk at 8.99 for a T & A dress shirt.

Otherwise, I have gotten some good wool tartan fabrics off ebay for a decent price.

I have several places I go to in the garment district in NYC for decorator fabric (fit for curtains, pillows, kids' costumes, etc.). If you buy on clearance, you can get fabric under $3 a yard, and sometimes significantly -- $1 per yard or less. Now, often that's either off cuts (0.5 yards or less) or the patterns that didn't sell well. For solid amounts of the nicest stuff, you need to be exceedingly patient, exceedingly lucky, or exceedingly willing to pay the retail price (which, by the way, is rarely more than $10 per yard in any event).

But I've just honestly never been shopping for suiting or shirting (which is the correct technical term for the FABRIC, not the garment). I suspect such fabrics can be found with some diligence, and likely in the same area, if not the same stores. But just like with the decorator fabric, you're unlikely to find it for less than full price, which I'd hazard a wild guess to be in the $15-20 per yard range, with at least 2-3 yards required for a shirt.

Baww, just actually tried on those Kiton pants and they're just too small in the waist. So 54 (EU) x 31 are available.. frown.gif
post #59441 of 114744

thanks guys those are some good answers icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif I just remembered I know a thrift store buy my house that carries overstock fabric and sometimes even "suiting" and "shirting" not just the decorator stuff. I am going to check there and ebay and hopefully snag a wicked madras or flannel colgate.gif

 Is licensed stuff always crap? And what makes it lesser than the "real stuff"?

The real stuff has this woman hold hands with a girl that kinda looks like a sail boat, if that makes sense. Well, I only have a few real Lavin ties and a few real Lavin shirts that says "Lavin" and nothing else, think "Dior". I've yet to see a good Lavin SC. I'm sure DM7 and a few LA guys on here have seen it or handled it.

 

I've found a non-licensed Lanvin suit in the wild. Honestly, it was just a nice suit with a slim cut. Lanvin tailored clothes used to be made by Canali and are now made by Caruso, so look for the same things you would in any suit: soft fabric, canvassing, pick stitching, etc. If it's stiff as a board and with lapels at your nipples, it doesn't matter where it was made.

 

Or if you really don't trust your hand on suits, open the jacket up and look to see if the content tag is from Canali or Caruso.
