    Shoot John an email. Very prompt in response. I inquired about MTM pricing, and going off that, 3k seems a good bet.

    Where can I find more info on their trunk show schedule (London and Sweden most relevant for me)? Can't find anything on their website. Thanks

    These suits look great. Do all of them have a high button stance like the one the father is pictured wearing in the OP?

    What details would you guys recommend for a nice bespoke sports jacket from B&Tailor?

    Depends on what you have already that you like, what you want, and what, if anything, you need. Tell us a bit more about your situation, since what would be right for me (or any of us) might not be the best bet for you.

    I tend to prefer 3-roll-2 lapels and have sportcoats/suit jackets with all four common pocket arrangements (jetted, flapped, patch, and patch-with-flap). Fabric and intended use would determine which of those I'd recommend.

    Thanks. So. I've got two MTM sports jackets from Suit Supply - one medium grey and then a summery one that's blue with light blue checks. In terms of suits I have a bespoke Rubinacci suit in a nice blue wool and then a MTM medium grey one from the Row... then several other RTW ones.

    So since I want a bespoke sports jacket now, I'm leaning towards a blue one that I can wear all year round. I want it to be relatively relaxed but not too relaxed. I live in London... not on the Med. I definitely like the idea of 3-roll-2 because it's on the Rubinacci jacket and I love it! But I'm open to ideas for other colours etc.

    Any details on how the trunk show went? Anyone here got anything made? Think I might be interested in the future, or perhaps I'll try fit a time in HK or just go to Seoul one day. All good options it feels.

    Was a pleasure meeting John,Changwoo and Changjin (taking the photo)
    Just scouting this time,really loved talking to them and understanding what the B&T offering is about.Some very fine stitching/hand work. Their pant construction is supreme.
    Now to save up for the next trunk!
