Davies & Son were in the City yesterday, which gave them the opportunity to watch yours truly trying on a vested suit of Smith's Whole Fleece 15 ounce worsted in the 90 degree (32 C) heat. The suit was perfect (I had had some initial concerns about the sleeve length but those turned out to have more to do with the sleeve length of the button cuff shirt I had on when I first tried the jacket).Peter Harvey and Graham Lawless of tailors
With no adjustments required on the suit, we spent a few minutes looking unsuccessfully for a light gray gabardine heavier than nine ounces (too wrinkle-prone) and some 13 ounce white cashmere for a waistcoat that I could wear with the checked gray flannel that will be for next Fall.
Single breasted suit with double breasted waistcoat by Davies & Son worn with Michael Drake's mid-blue grenadine necktie and a DJA shirting by Joe Hemrajani. The pocket square was in the jacket I wore to the fitting.
