Well, you asked for more pictures… First, the speakers.
Correct Noel, it's the openness of the weave. If you look at something like the Porter & Harding 'Thornproof' bunch, which is much more made for suitings, it's not that heavy (12/13oz) but it's much denser

They would, you're right. It depends on how hot the weather will be - in India or Italy I'd worry, in the UK it would be fine. Equally, depends how much you're outside and how much inside in A/C Personally I'd for something lighter, more…

I don't know any actually Dan, they're mostly made for jackets. The undyed collection from Marling & Evans has some good coatings in it, but there's nothing this colour

The experience was very good, the suit wasn't one I wore much but I think that was largely my fault in the choice of material combined with the structured cut

Thanks for posting these pics. It also helps to put faces on well known names!
Hi Simon. Great article as usual. Two questions.
1. How can you afford bespoke?
2. How can I dress well with (MTM or bespoke) on a budget?
1. Partly, I’m fairly well into my career and earn decent money now – I couldn’t have afforded anywhere near as much 10 years ago. And partly, prioritisation. I know people (particularly women) who buy even more clothing than me, but all cheap, and it doesn’t last. I also don’t really have expensive tastes in anything else.
2. Save up and buy quality, buy conservative styles that will last, and have a read of posts like ‘make a cheap suit look good‘
