1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I've yet to peruse my PMs, and haven't attempted to consolidate interest from the likely dead Slewfoot fresco thread.

    By my count, we'd be at ~27 meters, including my input for a three piece.

    I've also put in a message to Huddersfield to inquire about the specs/parameters required for an order to take place.

    Upon hearing back from Huddersfield, the minimum order is 65m. Not drastically greater than estimated, but a bit more than the initially presumed 60 threshold.

    Will you try to consolidate from the other forum?

    Yes. I will try to drum up interest there. Definitely will not exceed 65 meters, but will hopefully give us a better jumping off point.

    So 30ish meters at the moment. Promising...feel free to try and drum up interest on the pertinent threads as well!

    Can @dieworkwear get this onto the PTO blog?

    Probably not really right for PTO, to be honest. This is kind of a niche project for bespoke customers, and only a few readers there order bespoke. Besides, it would be a private pet project and not really right for a site that I work for.

    To be honest, with the new Fresco III quality, I think most people should just look into that. It's nice (I've seen it in person). 510235 is a 8/9 oz cloth and a bit light, but 510263 is a heavier 9/10 weight. Color would make for a great suit or sport coat.

    I don't, sorry. They're a pretty neutral dark brown though.

    This was my mindset as well, but, in any event, I'm happy to try and move forward with this run if there is interest.

    Pardon my ignorance, but after y'all receive this fabric, is the plan to take it to a local tailor and have them create a bespoke suit? If so, can anyone provide a obviously very rough estimate of what their tailor charges?

    Yes, but the estimated cost really can't be honestly told. You could run the gamut from sub $1000 to probably somewhere approaching $7000 or more...

    My plan would to either do bespoke (if feasible) or do CMT MTM - aka use a retailer who will make a suit/SC for you using cloth you provide

    I'm in for 2.8m. But not sure if this is overtaken by @dieworkwear's latest comment on fresco III.
