Well, I guess if they were a bad crop, then they weren’t actually tailor made for you. Sounds like a terrible experience.Similarly once you have had a bad crop of bespoke suits and shirts made for you, you realize how easy, convenient, and what great value RTW is.
Sounds like fun. I’ve taken a couple of patternmaking classes and made a jeans pattern for myself. Now that I have it, it takes me about 25-30 hours to make a perfect pair of jeans. If I didn’t have so many pairs of pants in my closet, I’d venture into other trousers.It was great. I think now having worn them and comparing them to my previous favorite pairs of jeans, having them the exact way I want with input from a master cutter (previously from Edward Sexton) makes such a difference. Next time I’m there I’ll take in my favorite jeans (John Elliott Cast 2 in Coast light wash) and tell them what I love and what I would change, and see how we can make me my perfect pair of jeans. Right now my Lot No. 1 is my perfect raw denim/dark jeans, especially after the first wash; I think making my ideal light wash would give me two pairs of denim I could reorder for the rest of my life
