Thanks for the insight Gents. Andrew Lock sounds interesting. Anyone else have positive experience with him? Is it realistic to get a well fitted, fully canvased MTM with good fabric for ~$1500, or is that asking too much? Also anyone have a sense of the quality of such a MTM suit versus the basic Paul Stuart suits? better? comparable? worse?

Thanks for the insights. I think I fit better into the Paul Stuart suits than Lauren, so I could get one of those for ~1300 then use a good tailor for ~300. This could be a be a good option. I wonder about the quality of the MTM suits, say Mr. Ned, versus Paul Stuart or Lauren?

Looking for a couple new suits. Pretty standard stuff - solid charcoal, solid grey. Modern cut but not skinny suit. I want to find a good product for my price range (~$1500). Suggestions? Some names I have heard are Michael Andews, Greenfield, Mr. Ned, LS..... I think Mr. Reeves now focuses on higher end work. Apologies for bringing up the topic again but would love to hear about NYC tailors that SF member like.

Oxxford MTM suit? No wonder it looks wonderful. But how can you manage in a 3 piece suit in Atlanta in August?! That suit seems designed for wonderful contrasts with dark ties - navy blue, midnight blue, black.....

I am looking for the same thing. I think I will go Filson small duffle in either navy blue or dark brown. http://www.filson.com/products/duffle-bag-small.70220.html It has a strap but you dont need to use it. I ride the subway everyday so want the strap. It would be cool to have an interesting pattern in harris tweed, but i will save that for another time/need.

Hi folks, I want to get a gym bag that I will take to the office (before going to the gym). I want to get a bag that is reasonable for both business and business casual environment - (I dont want to be carrying a prominently labeled Addidas bag!). I ride on the subway so I prefer a bag with a shoulder strap to keep my hands free. I have pasted front/side pictures of a couple I am considering below - Filson small duffle and Mismo satchel but would like to hear...
