The suiting thread

but i can certainly do without all that puckering. pants aren't quite slim because i wanted it to balance with the jacket.
will definitely bring it in when i see you, kotmj.

Dugdale sells trimmings as well. Lining, horn buttons, silk buttonhole twist (maybe?). Might as well get them together with the cloth. Ask for the trimmings to be chosen by an experienced person. Get ermazine!
by the way, think i'll go with the dugdale 8960.

kotmj, i'm going to have to confess to my ignorance on the trimmings. and i can't seem to find them on the dugdale website (apart from the lining).
oh yes, would 4.5 meters be enough for a suit with extra pants? seems like the bill will be hefty enough on just the cloth alone: extra gbp25 to be paid for tax!

What I would love is an air force/RAF blue with obvious mottling:
Here's something at GBP 53/m (Cape Breeze).
Anyway, pics of the NFW covers
Trimmings are everything in a suit that is not the garment fabric. This includes body canvas, lining, buttons, collar felt, collar linen, edge tape, etc.
I think I should disclose that the current understanding is that my sifu will be making kenterong's suit and I get to be instructed by the sifu with kenterong as the example!
kenterong, I think 4.3 m will do, but tell me how tall you are and I will ask tomorrow!

my height is 1.73m, so if i can do with less than 4.3m of fabric, i'd appreciate any savings i can get.
by the way, i forgot to mention that i saw a totally unlined jacket at iris last week. it looked amazing.
