English suits often have pickstitching (fine stitching) around the edge of the coat collar and down along the front edges of the jacket where it buttons. Is this also the case with Fitsgerald BB suits?

Answer: 
Most Fitzgeralds (maybe all?) I've seen do not have pickstitching. Pickstitching does, however, appear to be a standard feature on the Regent suits.

Answer: 
I believe that the store carries the suits and the sleeve buttons are NOT attached. They will attach the buttons and/or make them functional (ie surgeons cuffs) once you've purchased the suit and confirmed the length of the sleeve.

Answer: 
The 1818 BB Fitzgerald remains a half-canvassed suit. There is not much difference between 'half' and fully-canvassed suits; both methods of construction use a generous amount of interlining material (canvas) to ensure excellent drape.

Answer: 
Hello,

Suit fabric is not measured in thread count, but wool is measured in super count. While the super count varies across different fabrics, our 1818 suits are Super 110’s quality. Super count refers to the diameter of the wool fibers, the higher the super count, the finer the fiber. 110’s equates to a diameter of 18 microns.

Thank you for contacting us.

Have a great day!

Tailoring

How can I provide you with precise measurements. Also one shoulder is higher than the other. Can the padding be changed?

Answers

Answer: 
Having one shoulder higher than another is very common; my left is higher than my right. Most of the time, my tailors have fixed the problem by moving the button so that the two breasts of your jacket meet and fasten at the right spot, but sometimes, they'll insert padding. In any event, there should be a couple of options available for someone with one shoulder higher than another.

I plan on shopping for a Fitzgerald suit at the Flatiron Shop and I would like to know if alterations are included in the sale price. In addition, I noticed that if you opt to build your own suit via the website, there are many more color options available. I assume I can go to a store and be afforded those same options? If so, what is the pricing?
