    My beginner-ish take was 0520 was sufficiently blue to make a BlazerSuit, but the grey/blue of 0577 was more appropriate to a summer suit?

    Really? :confused:




    There's nothing here about bespoke fabric selection. This may be of interest to you, but it's a derailment. There's another thread for it. Or are you just carving out a sub-subforum?

    If you're asking for a ruling from me, I don't mind a digression on what makes a tasteful blazer.

    Let me put it this way. If I could only have one, I would not want it to be 0520. Once I have a true navy, then 0520 is a nice addition.

    it certainly is the most relevant digression this thread has had to date.

    The top button, showing through the lapel, not sure why it bothers me so much as I am usually not anal :)rimshot:) but it does. You may need to have them remove it, press the lapels, and sew it back on, if it bothers you.

    ^ I was going to make the exact remark. I'm really curious though, why this 3 (not rolled) 2 lapel is so popular in the US. I've seen it on a few blazers hanging on a rack at Poole, and when I asked the cutter, he said it's an American trad. I inquired into the reason and he didn't really know. I do know, however, it's on tweed coats etc so one can button it up and flip up the lapels for warmth.

    Love is required whenever he's hired, it comes just before the kill.

    Probably the heat and humidity of HK, in part at least. I bet they're wearing those hidden loafer socks.
