    Hai guys, not so long ago I've bought 2.75 yds of this fabric from here. I haven't decided what to make out of it, I think about a DB sportcoat with patch pockets or a SB sportcoat+waistcoat. Looking for some ideas on this, what would you make out of this? It's silk btw.

    35 ties. Sell them each at £100. Buy a castle.

    I'm also leaning towards this one also, but i think only patch hip pockets and a jett breast pocket? 6 button and wide lapels.

    I know nothing about sewing but you can't possibly make 35 ties out of that much fabric can you.

    More importantly, do castles only cost £3500?

    I agree, it will look better if worn as an SB sportcoat.

    You think? then what about pockets? patch or welted? i want patches because i like them very much but i don't have many suits or scs feauturing them. Also i think about making also a waist coat and wearing the sc/wc with grey pants, ideas on how it will be?
