    I think that I suggested recently that someone on this site throw in the towel and simply have their suit made from Bemberg.

    Your post is essentially devoid of controversy.

    Shall I take that as the Vox stamp of approval on my thoughts regarding a charcoal herringbone suiting? Perhaps I will bump into you at the fitting in Boston and you can help me out in person? (thereby instantly making me credible in WAYWRN and CBD threaks and encouraging me to make controversial posts)

    Furthering on the Fresco discussion: I was thinking about a Fresco blazersuit, but with a deconstructed, uncanvassed coat, a bit like Vox's Borrelli. Would this work or is it a horrible idea?

    I have only one fresco suit but I'd say it is quite a "crisp" cloth, one that creates quite a sharp looking silhouette, and is therefore perhaps better suited to a little bit of structure. I'd go for linen or cotton or the like for the sort of thing you describe; a relaxed cloth that will match the relaxed feel of the coat. See what your tailor thinks.

    I read on London Lounge that beside Lesser, "The original weavers included Moxon, Taylor & Lodge, HFW and I think one or two others."

    I have dealt with Lesser and they were great at providing samples...

    I have never tried with the new owner..

    Are they as customer friendly\?
