For what it’s worth, Andrew claims that all work for all garments (including shirts, which at Maurice Sedwell, have full canvassed collars according to Andrew Ramroop) is done on the premises. There’s no outsourcing of any work at all.
For what it’s worth, Andrew also said that Maurice Sedwell’s house style consists of moderately built up shoulders and that their house style works equally well and very well for big and small shoulders but best for moderate shoulders. The way he described it, their house style is the halfway point of Anderson & Shepherd and H. Huntsman and is the only English tailor to have this house style.
I posted those coat questions on the Fashion Forum but I still haven't gotten a response. So just in case I don't get a response, I decided to ask you personally since if anybody would know the answers, it would absolutely be you. Thank you again.
Since you're an expert on the subject I hope you don't mind me asking you another question!
To go with my black patent opera pumps I need a quality pair of silk socks to go with them (I think). Could you recommend a pair / a brand for me? Also in your opinion should they be slightly transparent / translucent or plain black?
Hi MattS, it's Audi S5 TC. Since you have proven to be extremely knowledgeable about mens dress wear and formal wear, I have some questions for you.
Do trousers and vests have full canvassing, full fusing, half canvassing or interfacings? And, do these two garments have hand cutting, hand finishing, hand padding, hand stitching and hand tailoring? If so, do trousers and vests have the same percentage of each of these types of handwork that coats have?
I like this idea as well. I'm going to give it a shot and see how it looks. If its a nogo, then I'll just have to be happy with the jacket alone. Thanks again. Looking at some other suit pictures, I see what you're referring to. Hopefully I can find someone locally to help with the quarters.

As for the waistcoat, it is functionally too long as you can see it bunch up when you put your hands in your pockets. What I would suggest is to see if your tailor can hem it just above the bottom row of buttons and place the buttons inbetween the two remaining rows, along with cutting a new buttonhole. The only problem you might encounter is if the rise of your trousers is too short and the waistcoat won't cover the trousers' waistband. It would probably be simplet to go without the waistcoat. Or if you don't want to try to alter the waistcoat to make it look better, consider something like this: http://www.pakeman.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=6422 It would look great with the suit, but the linen will keep you cool.
