If you plan on wearing a suit every day for work, then you need at least two, and preferably three suits. Suits need to rest a day or two between wearings. Yes, one nice suit is better than three cheap ones, but that may not be possible in your case and within your time frame. I've managed find half a dozen nice HF mainline suits at NM Last Call over the years. It took a bit of work and patience to find the right ones in my size. Like many SF members, I'm not a big fan...
I ordered the rust/red during JCP's cyber Monday sale for $98.00. It arrived today and I'm very impressed with the quality of fabric and construction especially at this price point. The 40R fits me to a T with no needed alterations. Highly recommended! TT
I have noticed something interesting about suit trousers. My best fitting OTR suits are 39R, which come matched with 33W trousers. Lately, the trousers are over two inches smaller in the waist compared to the same brand of odd trousers. I have noticed this with HSM, JAB and other brands. Their suit trouser measurements are very different from their odd trouser sizes. Anyone else experience this? Thank! TT
My dress AE dress shoes are very comfortable, or I would not have bought them. I too, have done my share of trade shows. If I'm going to be on my feet for hours, I wear black Ecco rubber soled shoes rather than my leather soled AEs. AEs are great office/meeting dress shoes but they are not my trade show shoes.
I'm considering either the black/white herringbone or rust/red over-check. Which do you prefer? Thanks in advance! TT
Up for reluctant sale is my Gianfranco Ferre made in Italy charcoal gray top coat. It fits perfectly over my 40R suits. Single vent, never altered and rarely worn. New price was $1,800, will sell for $395 including shipping. CONUS sale only, payment by USPS money order. Thank you for looking! PS: I don't check my private messages that often, so email me at: too2tone@yahoo.com
Just curious regarding the consensus regarding vents on a double breasted suit jacket. What is your preference -- single, double or no vents? Thanks in advance! Twotone
President Obama gave a press conference and people were more interested in his new suit rather than his talk. I like tan suits and wear them as often as I can during the summer, but I would not wear one to a White House press conference. They look great for summer weddings in the south, but do not convey a feeling of power or authority. Plus, his complexion has too much contrast with the white shirt and light suit. I'm sure he has a full staff of style consultants -- how...
Oxblood trousers -- not my first choice. Oxblood shoes -- absolutely!
