    I saw this and thought the same. Your sleeves are very nice. I fiddled around loads with mine. The cloth would stretch and move so much, I think it was intended for a more looser cut, casual sport coat rather than a suit. Love it now though, think I will put it on tomorrow.

    Kiton charcoal grey cashmere. So soft and lightweight, like buttah. I keep textures consistent with my flannels, so I typically wear a grey wool/cashmere tie with a solid white shirt, and black wingtips. In winter months, I alternate between the Kiton (pictured), solid dark blue Isaia wool flannel (pictured), a broader chalkstripe Caruso, chocolate brown RLPL, navy Attolini wool/cashmere, a solid charcoal Sartoria Partenopea flannel, and solid light brown Richard James flannel. Here are a couple pics

    Hi gents;

    Venturing into the realm of bespoke. First commission is going to be a flannel 3-piece, peak lapels and DB waistcoat, for occasional social events. Choosing a dark blue LP 170s from the Wish book - is the only "picture" I can find; it's the last one in the book. Penny for your thoughts?

    Very nice. As in the article I posted it's not a great choice for the first commission because people usually wear that one suit into the ground, however if you're deliberately commissioning an occasional garment then it might be perfect. That is a particularly rich blue, have you seen anything made up from that cloth before?

    Overall I commend you for being so daring with your first bespoke commission!
