    Only if it's easy.

    It is indeed very nice in person. So much so that I had to get one, too.

    That's yours? Love it!

    I'm hoping she comes up here...I have some birdseye and corduroy waiting.

    I'm thinking of having Salvatore make the pants, and her people the jackets.

    Keep in mind I'm patient.

    Dumb idea?

    Not necessarily. But it will cost more. I haven't gotten pants from her yet but I gave her cloth for a suit and had her do the pants (after considering getting them somewhere else). She had the same idea of how they should be styled as I did so that was encouraging.

    Keep in mind if you divide the order, you need more cloth.

    Useful information...thank you

    If I decide against double sourcing the suits, I would still get odd trou from Salvatore if he comes up here.

    NSM sounds as reliable as the traveling English, but most importantly, it looks great. Post up some pics and reactions when you get yours. Fittings in the Fall for you, I assume?

    She is here next week.

    Salvatore has access to really great trouser cloth but Solito and Mina both have rather uninspiring suitings. So you will be fine for "pents" but try to source your own suitings if you can.

    She used to sell ambrosi pants amd I think she is a good fitter. I've never worn Ambrosi but did handle them when she had them and her current pants compare favorably. Not as much of the handwork but half price. But if you want ambrosi, you want ambrosi. Edit: going forward, I am going to have her make the coat and use my own pants in suits. Hopefully I won't fuxor it up.

    Thanks. I have my own cloth for the tryout round, three suit lengths.

    Going to do it on a solid suit, not sure I'd do it on a pattern.

    Looking at these makes me want to do something reckless.
