• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I wouldn't be surprised if, of all the suits Drake's has ever produced, this one would go down in history as the most difficult to pull off (to say which is of course by no means to suggest pulling it off hasn't been achieved on the photo at hand.)
I pretty much copied what they did but I know what you mean.

I think the FW19 red cord suit would be up there as well.

I still like the more traditional pieces from this season. Quality and styling is similar to RL Polo tailoring.

I think the silk Tussah jacket is nice. I haven't handled it, but it's hard to find a silk Tussah in a weight and weave that works for men's tailoring. At least when I was hunting around once for the fabric. I assume Drake's had this custom woven.

The stuff I found is too thick and shiny. This looks pretty matte.

I also like the covert suit. Bruce Boyer has a covert cloth suit from A Caraceni. Both his suit and this one is made from VBC fabric, although I don't know if it's the same specs. The color looks about the same. IIRC, Bruce told me that his suit is a 9/ 10oz fabric.

Does anyone know the maker of the Drake's made in Italy belts?

I'd love this seasons pebble grain belt, only I prefer belts wider than 3cm. Unfortunately Equus, my usual go-to, doesn't make unlined pebble grain in the same fashion. Other suggestions welcome!

I don't know who made that belt, but No Man Walks Alone has Farnese belts. They have a tubular, unlined construction and some are made from a pebble-grained leather. Don't know their width though.

I don't think that that is an unlined belt. That type of belt is made sorta like a tube sock, and then flipped.with a fill.

This is exactly what I ordered. The cloth is identical to one they've used in their ties. Not too shiny and nice and slubby, both of which are near impossible to find.

Having never gone MTM on a jacket with Drake's before, the process was super interesting. Wish they could adjust the lapel width but so it goes.
