Side seam looks radically curved to me.
Re: my Dashing Tweeds bespoke project above, I just got an e-mail back, a bit late, from Walker Slater of Edinburgh (now also in London). They are tweed specialists, but the prices they quoted me are ridiculously low compared to both Graham Browne and Cad and the Dandy. Does anyone have any experience with them, have any idea about their quality, or know where they do their cutting (before I ask them myself)?
Does W. BIll mail samples or do we need to find a distributor out here?
Isles Textiles is the distributor for W Bill. They are in Long Island, about 40-50 minutes from NYC.
dashing tweeds is expensive fabric.
graham browne charges around 650gbp for a 2 piece CMT and 850gbp for most fabrics.
If you're in Toronto Garrison Bespoke carries Dashing Tweeds here. I have no idea about their prices though.
Thank you, will give them a ring
Yes, thanks, I know about DT - I have the fabric already. And I know about GB, who quoted me 700 for a 2-piece and 1000 for a 3-piece. I was asking about Walker Slater...

^ Nice. Mina is making a Butt of Lewis herringbone for me, among other things.
Thanks. I have a Harris h-bone from Callum at BOL - still have to get that in the queue (though the Molloy may cut the line).
