I Was Reading This Book....

The book thread disappeared when its owner left the site so  thought I'd start another. Haven't read any Len Deighton for a while so started again on his spy trilogy. First one is Berlin Game. Terrific, I like it better than John Le Carre.

"I think I'm right in saying you have a Mohair already Robert? I'm sure you posted a picture in your tailors wearing the finished or near finished product.
In that case I'd go check variety is the spice of life after :-)"

"Forgot to add: The fabric I chose was from an English company as they tend to produce a sturdier blend of Mohair and Wool than Italy. The tailor I found here in Boston was trained on Savile Row in the 60s - he agreed. 

I am curious about your choic…"

"A friend recently allowed me to design his dream suit. I chose a Mohair/Wool blend, with a silk black/paisley lining. I'm glad he agreed to the material as it wears well and holds up beautifully.
A new custom suit, how exciting.
Good luck!"

frames replied to Robert McAlister's item Tailor .....the end of an era?
"Good cloth is vital, but what defines that is thread count, and a good wool (merino, cashmere) will have 400 - 500. Depends on what you want : weight, durability, drape. Good cloth makers are all over the world (as are bad ones)."
