Am having problems finding a suitable set of cuff links in the DC/NoVA area.  Any suggestions on places to go? Apologies if this is the wrong thread for it.
The fabric seems fine to me...about what I expected.  I picked up the deal with the free shirt and tie.  Tie isn't anything to write home about...and the shirt material is really light (poplin probably)...but I think the suit material is fine.
Thanks for the comments.  It's in for a remake. I uploaded those pics when I requested the remake.  I didn't ask to loosen up the back, but I did ask about the rolls on the back.  Hopefully they'll catch that.  Overall, it's an ok suit.  Decent for the price, but I'm not sure I'd go through the hassle of buying another one.  Maybe my mind will change with the remake.  I'll post up when it comes back.
My first suit from them:                  
Thanks Despos.  It's an Indochino...should I send it back for a remake or is this something I can have done by a local tailor?  I noticed one more thing.  I asked for high armholes and I don't think they gave them to me.  Although they are higher than my other suits.
Hello Tailors.  I'm looking for advice on my first made-to-measure suit.  I apologize for the poor photographs (partly due to my wife, but don't tell her that...and partly due to the poor camera on the phone). Also, please note that the suit was just taken out of the box when the pictures were taken. There seems to be enough room in coat, but I admittedly do not have a sartorial eye.  Please do what you can with the poor quality of the photographs.  I do plan to see a...
I have a question for those that have ordered a suit.  I recently purchased the Daily Hookup deal.  I picked up the Essential Charcoal suit as that is the one suit color I do not have.  At first I was considering a burgundy or deep purple liner, but have read that the lining shows in the sleeves (somewhere in this forum) from time to time.  For those that have an essential suit, your thoughts?   Also, I've thought about doing contrasting buttonholes.  If I were to do...
No worries.  I know it's not the best, but again, we all need to start somewhere. It does fit me extremely well though.
I thought I did pretty good for someone just starting out.  I needed a navy blazer and the BB 346 should fit the bill until I find something to replace it. I know it's not as good as the main line BB stuff, but it will work for now.
Just wanted to say thanks for the NoVA suggestions today.  I ended up heading to the Seven Corners Goodwill and scored:   -Brooks Brothers 346 3 button coat -2 Ties (Tommy Hilfiger and Izod) -Izod Button Down Collar Shirt -Jhane Barnes Shirt -Jos. A. Banks Sport Coat   The BB 346 appears to be a blue blazer (metal buttons with the "golden fleece" imprint), but I couldn't find a 3 button blazer on their site, so not sure what to think. I thought all...
