David - that is beautiful. Where is the cloth from and what is the weight?
10.5 oz Dormeuil Ice
David does blue very well.
That mohair is lovely, still don't have one myself though!
Fit pic from today, new client first fitting.....better lengthen those sleeves right?:ember:
David your suits seem to have a very nipped waist. Do you generally cut a close waist, or is the chest swelled to give that illusion?
It depends on what you are working with in terms of the clients physique. If someone is in good shape you really do not need to do too much, if they are portly the key is to cut close to the waist and cut the chest and shoulders wider. If someone is very athletic like a drop 10 cutting too close to the waist may look feminine so you make it looser in that area.
Generally I think of an ideal suit form which to my mind has a shoulder wider than the stomach, a chest wider than the stomach and a seat a little narrower than the chest. I then have to fit that form around different body types, simply put to degree everyone should look the same in my suits in terms of fit no matter what size they are or how their posture is.
Does that make sense?
Makes perfect sense. Thanks for that.
thats a lot of pockets. Phone pocket?
A couple of simple classic suits we are working on.
Well always be prepared! We call it a phone pocket nowadays but the more traditional and less fashionable name would be "cigarette pocket".
You know on an overcoat a poachers (or newspaper) pocket can hold a full sized iPad very well.
"NASCAR" tagging inside the suit perfect.
