LOL - I totally agree on Suit Supply's SAs.
Yes it's the Panta guy. His stuff looks amazing on stitches but I'll give propersuit a try though. Just make sure you get sizable lapels with an attitude and soft shoulders, I think you can carry that look.
Thanks for all of the additional comments on the Cantarelli sport coat.
On Proper Suit, pocketsquareguy was happy with the sport coat that he got from them. http://abitofcolor.tumblr.com/post/56694083116/proper-suit-jacket-review-by-gus
@unbelragazzo Wow, that was what Style Forum was like at one point? Manton, Foo, Whnay and others mixing it up with the tailors on some technical issue about drape and construction. It was pretty cool to read, and not easy to follow which just reminds me that I'm at best an undergrad on these issues. Anyway, in part, one has to be in the business of bespoke to really have the time and resources to delve that deeply into those issues. I'm just interested but with neither time nor resources.
The point you are raising, however, was nicely presented and quickly seen. I guess the remaining question is whether darts are always put in on orthogonal to the ground. Perhaps not?
Thanks for the link. It would be nice to have a good list of old threads that would bear fruit from careful reading (and darn it, I have to finish my taxes).
from his site- E G Cappelli- I have that tie, lined, and love it
For me this is the best ... it has a beautiful blue tone. And the beautiful texture of the fabric.
I agree with GC on both counts. A beautiful tone and wonderful texture. Not a staple though, but for someone who has a million blue jackets, this is one I'd happily add to my collection. It would be an excellent third blue jacket, after a standard navy blazer and a navy double breasted. At that price though, jungalo, I might consider mtm?
Need this thread's help:
Could y'all point me in the direction of interviews with tailor's that y'all enjoyed reading and let me know why you liked them (or what would have been better)?
Clags-They are mtm.
Pliny- I'll take a look through their options. I know they offer different styles of patch pockets I'm not sure about the sizing though.
Forgive the x post but this IMHO is very worthy
These landed today from @Henry Carter
and they are fabulous, no question about it just fabulous
As I have said before, for me, the quality of service is as important as the quality of the product. HC delivers on all counts, I recommend you drop by, you will not be disappointed.
I will be returning!
Got 3 ties from HC and they are some of my favorites. Great share, Cleav!
@Henry Carter has been Noodle Thread Certified for a while now. Speaking of, HC, why haven't you posted your Noodle Thread Qualification Certificate on your website yet?
Edit: Since we are counting HC ties, I have 8. I really feel like he's under represented in my collection given how much I like him and his wares. 9 from Howard Yount. 6 from Panta. 13 from Hober. HC should be above Yount imo. I'll need to do something about that shortly.
(Other SF Family members, all <6:
Also, Panta, Henry Carter, and Sam Hober are the only Noodle Thread Certified purveyors of ties at the moment.
I...am feeling a little bit left out here guys...
I've yet to get one HC tie.
Cleav's grey tie is very nice.
Thanks Luv. These are my first HC but certainly not my last. I'm going to get a couple of those Macclesfields, they look fantastic. What have you got mate?
