    Could just have the second jacket done as a 3/2 with patched pockets, no?

    Good suggestions, all. I appreciate it.

    I have chosen to cancel the commission and just save the suiting as an unfunded liability until the double breasted one gives up the ghost. Then I'll just commission an exact replacement. After all, the suiting is no longer made.

    I like it but that suggestion is too big time for me.

    And remember I only wear pyjama bottoms which would leave me with a length of suiting still left over which is what got me into this predicament in the first place.

    Hey there

    Has his been cleared up; I’m going through the same exact issue.

    Did you ever get your garments? I have now paid him in full and he’s late atleast 8 weeks and is very bad communicator?

    Thanks

    I ended up getting them after a million broken promises. I wasn’t pleased with getting my suit folded into a small bag after paying 100EUR for shipping. The suit fits but is a bit snug on shoulders and underarms. He will fix it next time he arrives in NY though I am concerned how long it will take to get it back.

    As a side note, I don’t understand him from a business stand point. The first commission is the hardest and his goal should be to get repeat business. He should be providing great service on the first one and then screwing us over in the future. Currently, I can’t see myself placing another order.

    Sounds like he bit off more than he could chew, and now you've two bad experiences. Will you keep it going or try a New York tailor?

    A NY tailor is out of my price range but I think it’s really the only way to go. You need to be measured by the cutter and you need multiple fittings. In the meantime, I buy off the rack and go to Wazin for tailoring.
