This three button, sapphire blue suit, in trevira wool, is going to face the proverbial chop of being pared down to two buttons. The pants will be altered at the waist, thigh, knee and bottom opening. The legnth of the pants as well. The sides on the jacket will be taken in and a single, middle vent inserted at the back. What I have learnt with this sizing and proportion issue is that I now know my exact or approximate measurements. From sleeve length to the trouser in-seam to my neck size, I have a fairly good idea what my measurements are. I couldn't of done it, however, without the assistance of the gentlemen at Soli Omar Tailors.
This particular suit is in a slightly coarse and weighty wool. Therefore, I will probably wear it on those chilly spring days. It will get a good run next winter, though. What I relish most are the endless possibilities, in terms of colour scheme combinations, I am going to try. With the sapphire blue being the canvass.
