    Yes, that's the one. Beautiful. The sort of jacket that doesn't need a square though I suspect you sometimes pop one in?

    Not often. If I do it's either gotta be a very small pattern or very large one. Color would be cream, navy, or black.

    This is sage advice but it's extremely difficult to internalise. I've been on SF for some two years now, and yet the only reason I've stopped impulse-buying (recently) is because I have way too many clothes and my wardrobe is bursting.

    Fortunately I have now, through sheer kopping volume, managed to acquire most if not all of the basics. The only items I'm still missing are ones I would be unlikely to wear anyway - a plain charcoal suit and a pair of plain cap-toe oxfords. These would be too conservative for my work and also wrong for my personality.

    My current plan is to gradually replace parts of my collection with better-quality stuff: basically, bespoke instead of OTR. I really need to start putting up some stuff on eBay to clear space.

    HY thread was finally locked. It was for the best.

    Sad trombone sound for Jamison squandering his SF goodwill

    Oh wow, I haven't even caught up in there, it just sounded the same page after page.

    Shame about HY, I had no problems with any of my three recent orders (including one refund). Guess I was one of the lucky ones..

    HY USA cut was my favorite trouser. He never did me wrong, but it was a long time coming. Thankfully, my MTM trousers are based on that pattern so I'm not too heartbroken.

    So the HY thread is shut down? So sad. I like the USA cut as well. Never had a problem with Jamison though increasing lack of email response and the disappearance of hand written notes a shame. I still might pick up a pair of linen trousers.

    Murlsquirl: luxire and did you have a 32 copied?

    It was.

    - American cut vs Italian?
    - I had a bad experience
    - Well I had a good experience

    And repeat.

    Will do. The waist is taken in 1/2", that's the only thing done to them.

    I think "the NOBD collar" is about to be joined in Luxire's pattern department by "the Murlsquirl trousers". The people in their ordering department will think we're nuts.
