Found my tab collar, however wrong size and wrong cuffs   ajb007/crap

Re: Nafets47's collection thread

The very one. I just saw what it said Tab Collar White Tom Ford and I didn't stop clicking through until purchased. Then I looked and saw that it was too big and wrong cuffs.

I have a Tom Ford white cuffed shirt that is a bit older that I will have a tailor swap the cuffs with if need be and then trim it way down to fit my frame. But was checking if anyone wanted a straight trade before getting into it.

I am totally okay if the one being traded is used.  ajb007/martini

Re: Nafets47's collection thread

Funny story, I ordered a jacket from Gilt which appeared to be near perfect to the Tube Station jacket from SF. However when I received the jacket the inner label did not match the SF swatch. Seeing as I didnt care that much I just had TF make a MTM pair of pants to match the label on the jacket.

What arrived was a charcoal pair of trousers. Pretty alarming considering the cost of a pair of MTM trousers from TF NY. Anyway, the team there is completely awesome and decided to remake the trousers once I showed them the inner label of my jacket and I ended up sending the jacket to them to get a perfect match on trousers.

Well look at the below pictures.

Perfect match to the SF tube station swatch. All in all paid 1600 for a SF tube station suit which is NWTs which I was pretty pumped about.

Hope you enjoy your day.

Stefan

Re: Nafets47's collection thread

Great stuff Stefan, a beautiful suit for a beautiful price!

Just a question though, if TF still have the material to make the correct trousers, does that mean they can make the jacket as well (a full suit set)?

107

Re: Nafets47's collection thread

Thanks.

Just so its known, the jacket I have is a Base A fit meaning its a Windsor base vs the SA O'Connor/Falconer.

Difference between the two is mostly the waist suppression and lapel width.
-
In regards to the fabric, seems to be the case.

The jacket however would be $4,000 by itself.... I asked because I wanted a 100% accurate suit. However the $4000 put me off, my jacket can have slightly wider lapels for the price difference.  ajb007/lol

If I see the jacket come up again I will post it for someone on here to grab, now knowing it is the SA fabric.

Re: Nafets47's collection thread

I just snagged this nice QOS Cardigan alternative from Belstaff. Will need to have the buttons dyed black. However looks pretty nice IMO.

Re: Nafets47's collection thread

So I got my Patterson re-cut at a leather tailor in Tampa, and all I have to say is WOW.

It looks perfect, she ensured the stitching was exactly spaced as the rest of the jacket, she dyed the thread to ensure it was the same color.

She took up the sleeves 3 inches, took in the shoulders 1.5 inches, took in the waist 3.5 inches and the chest 1.5 inches and it has the exact same shape as before but is just smaller.

All in all it cost me a whopping $161.98  ajb007/biggrin

I did also check if she does leather dyeing and of course she does, told me that if I brought her several pictures of the jacket in black she would get a match and ensure it has the same sheen; the whole 9 yrds for $150.

Needless to say, I am very pumped!

Stefan

Re: Nafets47's collection thread

That is an extremely good deal for leather alterations! Great it all worked out.

Re: Nafets47's collection thread

Added a TF Greene Party Suit in my size and a pair of Camberley to the collection.

Both for a steal! I really need to quit looking for things I want  ajb007/lol

Re: Nafets47's collection thread

Did you manage to get your Patterson dyed??

Re: Nafets47's collection thread

Oh excellent! Keen to see how it turned out  ajb007/martini

115

Re: Nafets47's collection thread

Same here.
Also interested to learn how you managed to dye the leather without damaging the lining.

Cheers

116

Re: Nafets47's collection thread

The tailor who dyed it for me got a little bit of dye in a couple small areas.

However I told her that if she messed it up she was buying me a new one and I showed her the price. So needless to say she was careful.

Stefan

Wife didn't end up liking the fit (thought it was a bit too snug), so it was sold to another... bummer.

However it looks like I might have purchased a HOLY GRAIL of mine. We shall see if it works out...
