    @JHWilliams do you find RCV too heavy for 10 month wear? Also, what part of the world do you reside?

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    What are the good/decent 9-11oz/280-330g workhorse worsted wool fabric bunches? Solid in terms of durability, wrinkle resistance, and maintaining shape. From my understanding, Harrison’s premier cru, Holland Sherry Target, H. Lesser lgb 11oz are recommended in this range on this thread. Are...

    HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014)

    Very nice suit. One of the nicest seersucker suits I have seen. From a distance it looks like a worsted wool self stripe. Kudos to Joe and Divij Hemrajani

    @UrbanComposition I definitely agree on a smooth textured wool being weird for cream a sports jacket. However, from my understanding, plain weave cool wools and Panama weaves tend to have a crisp, dry, and slightly textured feel. Almost similar to a high twist. At least that is how it looks to...

    The white/ivory/cream double breasted linen suit/jacket with besom/flap pockets and white mother of pearl buttons is very intriguing to me. Mainly because of the potential versatility. It can work as a summer dinner jacket, suit, and sports jacket. Have you considered alternatives to linen such...

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    Traveling tailor is eventually the route I would like to go. Tailors such as Steven Hitchcock, Steed, and Redmayne (Tom Mahon) are my preferences. However, I have a couple of concerns. My first concern pertains to availability. Generally, traveling tailors may visit once or twice a year to my...

    Lol, I noticed that too on his Fresco suit made by Sartoria Gallo nyc. Tbh, Sartoria Gallo Nyc seems very passionate and I am sure he is very capable of doing quality work. However, I really don’t care for his silhouette nor was I impressed with the work he did for Kirby Allison. Kirby’s...

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    Currently, I live in Houston and there are really only two viable local options. Both tailors I’m interested haven’t shown me anything super interesting in terms of the single breasted “house style.” However, the are highly recommended in the city and experienced high quality tailors. For my...

    @dieworkwear Unfortunately I’m one of those guys with an “unusual build”. 46/47 chest with a 33/34 inch waist. Rtw isn’t an option for me and I am terrified of mtm suits/jackets. It’s bad to the point where if I attempt to try rtw, jackets with un padded natural shoulders are the only passable...

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    I definitely agree on the idea of the navy single breasted jacket being the basis of a first bespoke commission. However, for my first commission I am looking to work with a local tailor. Neither of the local tailors I’m interested in working with produces a “house” single breasted style that I...

    @dieworkwear and @Despos: For a first time bespoke customer/client, which suit/jacket style or silhouette is the easiest to perfect in general. A double breasted or single breasted?... my initial thought is that a double breasted would be easier to get right on the first commission because the...

    Tbh, it’s difficult to critique restroom partial body mirror pics. And although I am no expert on bespoke tailoring or the characteristics of a perfect fit in reference to your body type, the shoulder and buttoning stance look fine to me. The only elements that are throwing me off are the smoke...

    Is anyone here familiar with dugdale’s 3ply high twist “travel flannel”? It seems very interesting in terms potential performance, especially for trousers. It has the lightness of a tropical wool, potential durability of a high twist cloth, and the texture of a worsted flannel...

    Your brown glen check jacket is absolutely stunning!!!! I bet that will probably be your favorite sports coat by next fall and winter. I can imagine that the cashmere makes the garmet very soft and cozy. I hate for you to be repetitive but can you please give some details on the fabric for your...

    Excellent broadcast by Bespoke tailor Tom Mahon. It is inspired by a question I asked him in regards to selecting a cloth for a durable “workhorse” suit. It’s always interesting to hear the perspective from tailors and cutters about their favorite cloth to work with as well the ones in which...
