For those of you who have purchased detachable turndown collars from www.vintageshirt.co.uk to go with your BB formal shirts, which collar did you select? I see the "Albany collar," which is described as starched white cotton, or the "Soft separate collars," which are described as white poplin. Which would be more appropriate for black tie?
I have several pairs of the LE tailored fit trousers, and I like the fit. Based on your description, I'd definitely recommend the tailored over the traditional fit for you. The tailored fit are slimmer than their regular pants, but nowhere near tight. Their traditional fit is actually quite baggy in my opinion. For the record, I'm 5'-10", 150 lbs., 32 waist.

I would actually have to disagree with you on that one. Having...
Bonny Doon Vin de Glaciere Muscat is my current favorite.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "canvassed with fused lapels," but for clarification, my two Michel Angelos are fully fused. No canvas anywhere. Nevertheless, that doesn't bother me much. In my opinion, construction quality is high for a fused suit. At the $255 STP price, they're a great deal.
I'm wearing a Michel Angelo suit today. I picked up two of them off of STP a few months back for less than $300. At that price, I think they're a great suit. They are fused, but it seems to be a very light fusing. Not at all stiff. Most of all, I like the cut and the way they fit me. Their 38 fits me quite well off the rack. One of the few suits I didn't even bother having the waist taken in on. I never noticed the jacket being long. Definitely not as long as my...

First, this ebay suit appears to be NWT also, and second, Filene's will almost never have something as basic as a solid navy blue. Most of Filene's Oxxfords (at least here in DC) are in fabrics that are a little more "out there." So I think a price in the...
I haven't bought one, but I have tried them on in the store. As is typical for Jos. Bank, it's definitely not worth the MSRP of $895, but for $190, I'd say you might have a nice workhorse type of suit. Much better cut than JAB's typical offerings, in my opinion. Narrower lapels, higher gorge, more waist suppression, double vents, pick-stitching, etc. It appeared to be half-canvassed. I wasn't too crazy about the fabric choices though. Which one did you end up...
Does anyone have any experience with the Hickey Freeman Barrett model? HF website I'm somewhat desperate for a navy suit in the short term, and the HF website has a basic navy pinstripe at half price. I'm familiar with the Madison model, but haven't tried on the Barrett model. Any idea how it compares?
