For that kind of money, not doing at least MTM is borderline unthinkable here. You should really be going bespoke. Unless your body happens to be a perfect Brioni / Oxxford / Kiton pattern, you'd be poorly served for your 5-6k. Even if it is, you could have gotten savile row level bespoke for the same kind of money.  If you have no qualms about dropping a few Gs on a suit, why not spend the money on a flight to Chicago and talk to Chris Despos? He's here on SF and I'm yet...
So this week the  basement flooded and my computer died + it's week 1 of finals. Not great.  Fortunately, it's been the best week of thrifting we've ever had. These are JUST the really awesome things. SIZES 44-48 R-L GET AT ME     From most distant to proximal: 1) Samuelsohn LP110s navy orphan, hella sportcoatable2) Zegna mainline navy staple suit3) English bespoke 6-2 db orphan that was way too perfect to leave4) Belvest 120s windowpane sport coat5&6) Cantarelli modern...
You, Spoo, and GMMcl can basically take all credit for inspiring me to dress better. Great fit!

^^^  HUGE props for being a complete pleasure to work with! :D   Those complements XD
Two e-thrifts. A LOT of skin in the game on them, but... Cha-ching. Crockett & Jones / PRL Ravello shell chukkas, 13D [[SPOILER]] Santoni FAM #8 shell captoe derbies, 10.5D [[SPOILER]]
Thanks so much for the feedback guys!
I can see where you're coming from on that one- a more subdued square would've done me good. Perhaps simpler socks as well!
After six months, I'm ready for a second attempt. Another odd jacket look; I was able to pick up a Donegal jacket, which you guys suggested (thanks!) Ideally I think I'd want to work with a slightly darker tie in a shantung silk or linen; though this grenadine is lovely, the scale of the weave is a little too close to the Donegal weave O think. Did I make par? (Sorry for crap pics- I've had issues finding a good-sized mirror...) Please heap on the criticism. I'm still...
Was about to leave goodwill empty-handed, saw the shoe rack come out... decided to wait to see what they put out.  Pretty glad I did :) (Not available)         12 dollar shell PTBs :D - great shape too!
