    Today I decided to try something a little different - use a well-liked fit from another member as inspiration for something of my own.

    What better person to emulate than [​IMG]?

    And here's my tribute - a little different, of course...

    Think u may have 'pattern-mania'. As a fellow sufferer (in recovery) I know the signs. I wouldn't try to go cold turkey. Better to gently reduce by say one pattern for a couple weeks, see how you get used to it. If okay, drop it back again. Don't rush it, and try to avoid 'triggers' that'll tempt you to fall off the wagon- SF meet-ups, scrolling thru early Whnay's good taste thread, posts by members like Crusty, or Southern Style. Remember to block AAS. Before you know it you'll be wearing all solids, and looking back you'll wonder what all the fuss was about.

    another good one DL.


    Nice! As in 'Ring Jacket' Ring?

    I understand what you mean about difficulties with having jacket sleeves taken up at the shoulders, and entirely agree with the points that you make.

    However, I'm at a bit of a loss as to why you decided to accept an MTO jacket when it had problems like that. I suppose that there's a point where you might decide not to bother further with things but if you're paying $1500 or $2000 or whatever an MTO Formosa jacket costs, it would (to me) seem entirely reasonable to send the jacket back to get things sorted out if Formosa finished the sleeves when they weren't supposed to have done so.

    After all, if it's MTO and the sleeves are finished to the wrong length, then it's not really MTO, is it? Well, not MTO made to your order specifications, anyway. If you're paying good money, then it's up to the tailor to sort things out to your satisfaction, even if it means fitting a new set of sleeves to the jacket so that they can be made the correct length.

    ^ agreed

    My guess, though, is that Stitchy and gdl are tight, and for whatever reason, Stitchy didn't want to bother gdl with the issue. Or it could just be that Stitchy was super eager to have the jacket and didn't want to wait.

    Not decisions I'd make. But I'm not Stitchy.

    Looking back, that probably would've been best. [​IMG]

    @Betelgeuse who makes the cloth for your suit/SC, is it linen or wool? Texture looks wonderful. Thanks, DL-

    If I am not mistaken, it is Wool Linen Silk Cashmere by E.Thomas, from SuitSupply (Soho fit). Of course, I don't want to answer in @Betelgeuse place, just thought I'd help.
