    I think you could break a suit up into separates as well...harder to pull off the odd jacket but houndstooth flannel trousers + navy SC is badass.

    you commit, or give your word, that should we reach 60 meters you will purchase your requested allotment. You will also need to know how much cloth you require.

    You will be having this made up. Ask your tailor. Also make sure your tailor accepts outside cloth.

    If you are planning on a 2-piece single breasted suit then 3.5 meters will be sufficient. You can order 4 meters if you want to be cautious.

    I would recommend 5 meters so you have 3.5 for your suit and 1.5 meters extra for a second pair of trousers....this way when your first pair of trousers wears out you can keep using the suit for many more years.

    Out of curiosity, Greg, if this gets off the ground would it be possible to arrange it as a Formosa GMTO (for those interested in doing so)? If so, would others be interested in that?
