The company is less than a year old. Mind your business unless you have something constructive to add.
Why are the pants draping awkwardly? Too long? They feel tapered and narrow at the bottom.
Kidmag: I'm very impressed with the quality and feel of the fabric. Keep in mind that I'm comparing it to lower quality JAB suits... You should order some swatches for free so you can get a feel for it.   Sorry for so many pics, but I would appreciate any and all feedback. I'm not a fan of the "slim pants" look. Is this something that can be fixed by my local tailor or is a remake required? The suit has not been pressed, but has been hand steamed. Thanks in advance for...
Kidmag, thanks for the quick feedback. You are correct, it is the charcoal herringbone, tailored fit. Personally, I am not a fan of the "slim pants" look. I would much prefer a traditional straight-leg. Can this be corrected by my local tailor or is a re-make required?   Better pics to come, thanks!
I'm happy to report that my BL suit (charcoal herringbone with vest and extra pants) has arrived, two and a half weeks after ordering. I will reserve my comments regarding fit until I get the forum's opinion, as I'm hoping for some non-biased feedback. Sorry for the poor pictures, I will post better pics tonight. Any preliminary thoughts in the meantime? These pics are fresh out of the box (no pressing or steaming). Thanks in advance!  
If you donate an old suit to charity and show them a receipt, they will give you a 10% discount code. Their prices are very reasonable as it is considering the quality of fabric, craftsmanship, and high level of customer service you get.   I was deciding between three M2M companies before I finally pulled the trigger with BL. Their concierge customer-service was by far leaps and bounds above the competition. I also believe their alteration/remake/refund policy is the...
BL is more expensive than Indochino, but I believe the difference in price is more than justified. Half-canvassed with 100% Bemberg lining vs. fused-hybrid construction is reason enough. The rest is icing on the cake...   http://www.thefineyounggentleman.com/2012/06/made-to-measure-black-lapel-review/ http://www.indochino-review.com/2012/03/introducing-black-lapel-navy-blue-suit.html http://primergreyblog.com/shirts/black-lapel-vs-indochino/   I echo the...
  After almost a dozen pair of shoes, I believe I found a happy medium with my new AE's. My new Boardroom's came in yesterday and the 7 last seems to fit me much better than the PA's I returned because of the bowing. My only concern with the new shoes is a divot that appears on the welt of the shoes. It is most noticeable on the right shoe. I exchanged the pair I received directly from AE for 1/2 size bigger at JAB. Both pairs had the divot mark and I was told that is...
I found a solution... The Boardroom, made exclusively for Joseph A. Banks (http://www.josbank.com/menswear/shop/Product_11001_10050_299320) is made on the 7 last and fits me much better without any bowing. In fact, the pair I just tried on exhibits some "reverse bowing" on the right shoe. Overall, it is a much better fit. JAB didn't have them in black, so I have to order. I recommend others that are experiencing the same bowing issues to try the Boardroom. I was told by...
