I like that wool silk linen Fabric. You liked the green over the brown?
That's the same fabric that Fabio Attanasio is wearing here....I've wanted it for almost a year now.
Love that fabric in both the brown and the green, though the green calls to me a bit more. If I recall, there's also that color with a windowpane? Same for the brown? Those are possibly even more spectacular (though possibly 13% more difficult to pull off, as well).
I was initially going to get that in green, decided to go with brown, and in the end went with a similar cloth in brown from Dormeuil for a few bucks less.
I like your jacket and you'll get more wear out of it.
Yes, the green and brown Drapers fabrics are both also available with a thin windowpane. It's all in the same book. Fabric is wool 70%/silk/linen (forget the other percentages).
For reference, here's how the brown version looks as a suit. I was all set to have an identical suit made up last year, but ran low on funds. I will definitely go ahead with it this year, except most likely in green, as I now own a brown suit.
Do you have green yet, Clags? A man with so many brown and rust ties without a green SC is a minor tragedy.
If one awesome green SC is good, one for spring and one for fall (even if you don't have spring and fall seasons) is even better.
I have a moss green wool/cashmere checked jacket, but I'd love one closer to solid and more suitable for year round use.
The brown does look much more formal than I anticipated
B&Tailor is doing a contest: best picture of the outside of the shop gets 2k towards a bespoke suit.
I'll send my wife asap. She is the artist of the house. Alas, I and my sartorial experiments are not high on her prio list as a veritable subject...
What's the deadline and how does on submit? Their Tumblr/IG...?
If you win I am expecting a finders fee. Contest ends...uhhh....shit...next week? Dunno. My Korean barely figured out that much. Noodles will know.
He might not want to share that with me.
If you had a link I'd ask some professional help. And deal (payable in ties, I bet).
I'm going to Seoul for 10 days on holiday soon.
Any chance that I can get measured and fitted in this time frame?
You should probably call them and ask?
