Visited the STF warehouse the other day looking for a birthday present for a friend. (Of course, I wound up buying a suit for myself, 'cause that's what SF does for you...) Hadn't been since he was in Venice. It really is worth a trip if you are visiting LA. Kind of like the top floor of Nieman Marcus, but at wholesale. And iff anyone needs a proxy, I'll be happy to provide the service. My fee will be a very moderately priced trinket off their shelves...
Methinks Ianiceman knows exactly who he is. But more importantly, what is Keef wearing?
We'll be right up. Just as soon as it stops raining.
Nothing is going to fit you OTR. You might as well find the closest you can, and then get a good alteration tailor. Or go MTM.
Not everyone wants to shop at Goodwill.
Why do you even ask? Somebody gave it to you as a gift.
I think it's actually the narrow leg on the pants that makes the shoes look clunky rather than the other way around. Not that it's a problem. It reminds me of the old skinhead look of my yoof. However, while the suit fits okay, the sloped shoulders seem to make your head look very long. You might try a shirt with a larger collar to balance it better.
Saw a very nice pair by Rag & Bone in Barney's the other day. If it weren't for the $300 price tag...
40% off is a substantial discount. Comparing it to used suits on eBay is apples & oranges. You'll be hard pressed to find a store you can walk into and try things on that will beat that.
No idea whether they will work for your body type, but I think the suits are pretty good value. You can get a MTM Golden Fleece for a little over $2k, which is considerably less than you'll pay for OTR suits from any of the high falutin' Italian brands. The fabrics are from Loro Piana et al, and the suits are made by Martin Greenfield, who is well respected. I say go for it. And report back.
