This is a nice Hong Kong shot.
The suit does look nice on this young chap.
This chap is actually a woman! She wanted a mans styled suit to fit her, so I suppose I accomplished this. Before this I did a made to measure for her which also turned out very well with a lot of patience.
This is her Yelp review of the first:
Very challenging fit especially for MTM.
Unlined silk and linen, Dormeuil cloth. Fitting from yesterday on a size 42
Very nice, would do just fine here in Florida...
This is quite versatile as well because it can be worn as a suit or a blazer. We put patch pockets and 1/4 stitching on the edges to give it a more casual look. The client wanted a rather wide lapel but I think it works quite well in this instance.
Burgundy suit, laser print lining
I didn't know Austin Powers was a client of yours.
Just a bit of fun, I was totally thinking department S/Jason King! Been watching madmen season 7 as well which is also going decidedly psychedelic. I think Stylistically there is a sweet spot around 69/70 and then mens fashion really loses it and doesn't get good again until 78/79 with new wave.
Bit Miami Vice this one. Silk and linen again but with a self stripe.....this cloth looks like chrome.
Sample Sale Starting Friday 13th of Jun- Sunday 15th
Lots of lovely ties, shirts and some very luxe suits. More Details to follow.
The burgundy is nice but what about a red mohair?
That would be great (you know I love mohair) but I don't know anyone that currently makes it.
I am actually already thinking of winter, tempted to do a red Donegal tweed.
I contacted Halstead once and they said they can do custom dyed bolts in small quantities.
