I am not a tailor, so take that into consideration. The jacketing from Loro Piana has given me consistently good-great results. The very delicate stuff like the cashmere cloud/ sunset bunches that are cashmere/ silk blends in very light weights need to be considered appropriately. In other words, a 7 ounce cloth in luxury fiber is not going to wear or perform like a tweed or 12 ounce hopsack.It seems you gents haven't been burnt before. Not trying to be a jerk - but once you have been burnt, you have a very different outlook on something like this.
Interesting. Out of curiosity - care to elaborate?
The suiting cloth from LP I have heard from tailors doesnt hold a crease as well as they'd like and can be difficult to work with. As I dont have to do the sewing, I have not experienced this first hand and have had good results with those garments as well. In fact, my favorite personal suit is from the Winter Tasmania book and it makes me happy every time I wear it. With that said, if the price was the same I would probably go with Scabal for suiting, maybe Harrisons though my experience is limited.
Was there anything else you were curious about that I didnt touch upon?
