Yesterday my tailor called me saying he had found the perfect fabric for me. I was originally taken by a Brioni suit in brown cashmere with a purple pinstripe through it and had been considering something similar. Knowing this, when my tailor received the new Loro Piana books and flipped through them, he found what he thought would be the perfect fabric for my next commission. It's a 10.5oz brown wool & cashmere with a light blue broken stripe through it out of the LP Propsta book (#12100). It's got a bit of a flannel like texture but it isn't really. The stripes are about .5cm apart. Do you think it's a good or bad decision to do it as an odd jacket? I'll admit to having a bit of a mental block when it comes pinstriped jackets on their own, but then I don't think there is a huge danger in this jacket looking like an orphaned suit jacket. Now if you have unlimited money it's a no-brainer to do the pants as well, but that will add a thousand bucks to the price and I really don't wear a full suit very often (ever really). I put down a deposit for my tailor to order enough fabric for a jacket, but am wavering on whether or not it was a mistake not to order pants as well. My thinking is that I'll just have it made in such a fashion that it appears more casual. So I'll perhaps do hacking pockets, use a lighter canvas, very lightly padded shoulders, etc. Any thoughts or opinions? Particularly from those that have seen the book and know the fabric?
