    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.

    Thanks!
    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?
