    London last week. Just a blazer. However in an interesting cloth, Springram 16 oz. First fitting. Sleeves will be shortened a tad.

    The Tailors' Thread: Fit Feedback and Alteration Suggestions

    Your anatomy is not to blame. That is why you go to a tailor. As this tailor charges you more than anyone else in London, you'll have to confront him with the fact that you're not happy at all. He cannot leave it there. The result just does not meet your expectations. Nor his! Your tailor once...

    Fawn cavalry twill suit?

    S.Crompton's suit by Chittleborough & Morgan was cavalry twill by Dugdale, same weight as yours. Here's another C&M suit in dark grey 4218 cavalry twill by Dugdale https://sartorialnotes.com/2016/04/20/chittleborough-morgan-suits/ At C&M they like cavalry twill suits

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    Headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, where it was founded by a German that wisely had fled his country in 1938. Scabal were among the first (if not the very first?) to present fabrics in bunches.

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    This 50%wool/50% linen from Drapers' Portofino bunch might be an option. The screen doesn't show that the fabric does have some texture as it is natté, a basket weave with interwoven yarns. https://drapersitaly.it/bh-en/collection/25023/

    Thank you! Good bespoke will not chose the path of rationalization, reduction, optimizing labour etc. Hence I do not grab the essence of another recent thread in this forum. It compared two jackets (one bespoke, the other RTW or MTM) by the same maker. The bespoke item looked rather like a rtw...

    Bespoke Wedding Suit - London Tailor Recommendations Please!

    If you're in London I'd certainly stay there and visit a couple of tailoring shops that cut on the premises. Be as honest to them as to yourself about this project with regard to price & deadline. Many options off Row, e.g. Sims & MacDonald ( £ 1500-2000), Timothy Everest (around 3 k), Benson &...

    First bespoke suit?

    FWIW Davide Taub from Gieves & Hawkes comes to NY at the end of this week. He trained with E. Sexton, so he can make you a structured suit, however with a lighter construction than traditional British, also he might use lighter fabrics like the French that still drape well and still look...

    I see. But in a way that will be neither fowl nor fish. Why? Shirts like Filson are made of heavy shirting, that is cotton or cotton/wool blends. They're unlined. A heavy twill like yours will have to be lined, otherwise you'll hardly get the "shirt" on and off. Remember the fabric 20-22 oz...

    Because of its rather flat appearance cavalry twill is mainly used for trousering, as you know, however several tailors make suits out of it, e.g. in navy or charcoal. Yours does seem to have kind of a marled appearance. In the weight you have (20-22 oz.?) it won't be a jacket for summer...

    I have always found Timothy Everest good at designing pieces for these in-between situations. His garments are often not formal yet still stylish. His team with Lee is very good at the bespeaking part of the project, i.e. the process of finding out what you want. Have a look at...

    Looks as if quite some customers have had similar experiences, though, based on what you read in the comment section for the last three months. Also, Jeffery Diduch dissected a jacket by B&Tailor in March last year that was given to him because it did not fit the bespeaker. It had not been...

    Bespoke similar to RLPL

    You might give Davide Taub from Gieves & Hawkes a try. Very British. He'll be in NY in 4 weeks.
