Yeah, if you're the writer of Little Red Corvette.
If you're Prince you can get whatever the f you want.
It's feasible (no real pattern matching going on here) although 5m would be safer.
3 times that
I'm also curious about this. It's a lot of yardage for a suit, especially where there's no issues with pattern matching.
(edited: I see this has been essentially answered)
Yea I plan on doing a 3-piece. 4.5m should be more than enough but I'd rather err on the safe side.
I usually get told 2.5m for a jacket, and 2m for trousers. There's obviously a little built in for safety-- one tailor I use was able to turn 4.5m into a 3-piece, and very nearly had enough for an extra pair of trousers. But with drape cuts, large patterns, DB, patch pockets, and so on, you often need more than the bare minimum.
Does this mean that we may see some restocks in NMWA?
Actually, to change my previous answer, I think a preferable solution if you were going to go that direction might be to unearth the "donkey" colored flannel such as the one that LL made a while ago. Portnoy had a suit made of it, and it was a nice informal mix of khaki and grey.
Must. Resist. Buying. More. Cloth.
And now I see that the Harrisons Flannel book has pretty much both of these covered (39226 and 39227). Has anyone been able to compare Harrisons to Minnis in this pattern? No sense doing a special order if it's in a book already.
Harrison's looks much more black and white stark
Shall we add a recap of the interest and lengths in the OP? I think we're unfortunately far from our minimum right now
Probably X-post to unfunded liabilities/NMWA etc
