My First Bespoke Suit!

8906 Views 16 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  JohnHarvard
Hey all,

I just commissioned my first bespoke suit. I'm using Paul Chang in Chicago. Today I picked out a beautiful Dormeuil. The fabric is 9-10oz--I forget which. I picked a slightly heavier fabric as a three season fabric. It is a navy color with subtle white chalky stripes.

I'll have three fittings. I'll try to post pictures from each one!

More Details: Its a single breasted, double button, with side vents. I have a special lining that is hard to describe but I'll try. Its Blue with reddish round flowers. It may sound wierd, but it looks pretty cool.

Amadeus is one of Dormeuil's entry level fabrics, but that does not make it cheap or low quality by any means. It's also Dormeuil's best selling fabric because it is great for regular wear and has a nice hand. It's an excellent selection and I think you'll be very happy with the suit.

How does Dormeuil favor against or compare to Holland & Sherry, Moxon and Scabal? I know for a fact that Dormeuil, Holland & Sherry, Moxon and Scabal are all miles ahead of Zegna and now Loro Piana.
I think Dormeuil and Scabal both have some great strong points and have a slightly different focus. I personally like these two Huddersfield makers as some of the best fabrics at their price points from my experience, but that is mostly a preference.
