Florescent light.

Making this up as a casual suit, but here's the length against tan trousers. Grey or cream would probably work better, I think.

So, are you guys doing something special on your BlazerSuits

to distinguish the jacket for when you separate it? For instance, double stitching or fewer sleeve buttons or something like that. Or is it sufficient to use cloth that can do double duty as a suit and as a standalone jacket? It seems to me that adding too many casual details to the jacket would break its functionality in a suit. I think patch hip pockets is sufficient, yes?

I always thought they sold it through their Sackville Street store..


You might be right! I'll check next time.

I'll, in all likelihood, be making this length up and be wearing it as a casual summery suit. Getting more casual buttons and, possibly, patch pockets, but I don't know yet. However, personally, I don't care much for double stitching etc, though I think three buttons on each sleeve would work. That length above doesn't strike me as being particularly formal, so much so that wearing it as a standalone will make it look as if it's an orphan. But that's just my opinion. I'll speak more with my tailor.

If they do you wouldn't have to pay the tailors mark up.

Do they still have those cloth shops on and around Regent Street?

I only venture into London for meetings and haven't walked around that part of the city for years.

are any of you gents familiar with the minnis fresco mohair blend (70/30 wool/mohair)? Interested in your perspective on this cloth and how contrasts to its 100% wool counterpart.
