These are instagram photos taken with an iphone, so not so great but you get an idea.
Looks very nice! What is the price range of something like this? I'll have to start saving my pennies.
You'd be looking at 3k, theres a lot of features and things going on.
What would a shirt with the Loro Piana fabrics run?
$350 each with no minimum, a more standard fabric like Acorn would start at $225
All my shirts are made in Manchester England by my shirtmaker who has been making my shirts since I was 19, so about 15 years now. He makes an individual pattern for every client as well.
What kind of paper is used for patterns in general, if you don't mind me asking?
Usually it's just brown paper but it depends on the individual tailor. Some like card because of the durability, some prefer just white paper. Brown paper is mainly used because chalk and pencil can be clearly marked on it. As you can see from the post I made before last, Dave the shirtmaker prefers regular paper when drafting his patterns.
