Well today my eBay cloth arrived.

Holland and Sherry Wool Worsted with a subtle pinstripe through it. Very happy. The price....40 GBP for 3.5 meters + 12 GBP shipping and 58000 Vietnamese dong in taxes, total outlay, lets call it $100.

God bless eBay

This is the cloth in question:



Thats a pretty accurate pic, only variation is the pinstripe a little less pronounced on the cloth (which is fine by me)

So tomorrow evening the tailor comes over to measure me up and talk about what I need.

I am very impressed with the shape and silhouette of this Hackett suit, so I think I will show him this as a guide to the sort of shape I am looking for.



Being based in Vietnam makes pictures extremely important :)

It will of course be full canvas, horn buttons, working sleeves, heavy reliance on handwork all over and all that good stuff.

The tailor has also agreed to let me come to his workshop and watch it be cut - which I think will be fascinating. Free to take all the pics I want...and I want! Will of course post all pics as we go.

Really looking forward to it to tell you the truth!

Wish me luck :)
