    Best MTM or bespoke options in NY?

    The 4k suit is truly Bespoke it just omits the basted fitting, collar and lining is not hand stitched nor is the waistband and there is no deposit. Tbh though I bet most people couldn't tell the difference or even think about whether a collar, waistband and lining is attached by hand but these...

    Maybe a bit much granted. My social media is just full of tailoring “influencers”, I could do with getting it back on track with something more “normal”.

    To be clear I meant the comment was nasty not the work. I really wish I hadn't said anything now. Nobody should get upset though, that Mafoofan thread back in the day used to upset me, I can't say how many clients I potentially lost from that interaction but I do know how many I gained from it...

    Theres a real knack to photographing and even standing in suits in all fairness, it's just as nuanced as fit.....allegory of the cave and all that.

    I use the Bernstein silk a lot, I was always told not to use silk linings in a bespoke suit because it wears out, I have produced high 100s over the past 7 years and had no complaints

    Sounds like an odd one, perhaps warm but the durability would worry me.

    Yes it's really good, one would think it would be a bad idea, but you get a light mohair that keeps its shape but still has a great stretch to it. So really you get the benefits of both.

    Doesn't surprise me. Linen and silk could be another good option.

    I have never seen this kind of blend, it sounds like an odd mix to me which would negate both of the cloths strengths. If you are after something lighter you could use Dupioni silk or I have a nice mohair and Escorial blend that I deal in which I use for my own personal warm weather dinner suit.

    Best one-stop shop clothing brands/stores to build up a complete wardrobe of high quality classic menswear?

    I think my style is very English looking if you can push your suit budget up to 6k instead of 4K this could be a good fit, or just take it slow (which is probably good advice). I have clients that have ordered 1 or 2 suits a year for 15 years, now of course they have a wardrobe full of beautiful...
