 Ralph generally demands quality at an elevated level from their 3rd party partners. Not sure if this is the case with CJ, but know it to be true with regard to rancourt... I have a pair of calf skin loafers from ralph that are nicer than the actual branded version of the show.
 That is how a black suit should be donned if you are an older man. I personally think a lot of the fits showcased as "great" on SF are infact to boxy and baggy.Don't disagree with your advice, just want to clarify that a more contemporary fit is also acceptable.
 Updated the other jacket!http://www.styleforum.net/t/355532/samuelsohn-custom-sportscoat-coat-thread
If anyone is interested in top end Sammy MTM at a fraction of the cost let me know.  http://www.styleforum.net/t/355534/insane-samuelsohn-custom-navy-sportscoat-price-drop
 Been complaining about this for months. Their sizing makes no sense for a retail store in the US that is now generating strong interest from non japanese customers. They need a 34.5 Sleeve length on all their slim fit shirts. 35 could work, a bit long, but whatever. 
+1 the vast majority of SS critics are ignorant to the brand.  99% of the items do not include any poly.  Yes, I've been on a SS crusade today.
SS is better than Hugo Boss. Half canvas and branded fabric. For the money SS is a very well made garment. I have items that cost 5 times as much and the quality is not 5 times better.
You spent 10k on suits at cost. What does that have to do with spending 5k per suit at retail? Anyway, I assume you notice the huge amount of posters who disagree with you so I'll leave it at that. Agree to disagree.
 As other posters have said, Tim Gunn has no responsibility to promote bespoke suiting or locally made garments just because he can afford the items and or has a platform for speak about them. His net worth is about 5 million, assuming he's pulling in a million or two a year... In NYC that's not a ton of coin (sounds sick, I know). Typically, as you know, folks with a much higher net worth are spending 5-6 grand per suit. Tim Gunn's responsibility is to promote better...
Just stop, LOL. Truly, you sound foolish.
