Thanks again Gus for organizing, and congratulations to our hosts for putting on a great Meet-Up in their very elegant retail space. A warm welcome to Suit Supply which overcame numerous obstacles to finally become a major presence in Union Square. I am confident in your continued success.
Does any one remember a store that I think was called the London Shop on Madison Ave or possibly Lexington around the 1960s-70s? It was a very small haberdasher that specialized in shirts and ties. Its very crowded windows featured the "Mr B" collar on some shirts. The store's proprietor was short with a mustache Also another high-end shirt place further up the Avenue DeFree's ? Finally, I do not know whether it has been mentioned, Battaglia, on Park off 57th St...

Nothing that I was recently shown in the San Francisco store meets the true definition of"natural shoulder" In fact, t when I showed the salesman the old Belvest sport coat I came inwith, he was surprised that the shoulders had virtually no padding.

Call Paul Stuart. It's the kind of trouser they certainly used to carry when they were more Ivy League.Also, the Andover Shop in Cambridge MA
Meet up was maybe 1 1/2 years ago. Indochino style compared to the SF paradigm as exemplified by the WAYWRN thread is truly trendy and ridiculous. There are numerous MTM options where relatively good taste is the starting point. Beckett and Robb, for example, although not in your area:
Not a great idea. Do not defile a classical trench coat with your "crest". Many titled officers and gentlemen with crests wear (wore ) trench coats without displaying their escutcheons on their trench coats. Blazers are the proper medium for such displays. As you may know the trench coat was introduced in world war I for British Officers who were actually in trenches through much of the conflict. You will note that none of these heroes has seen fit to display personal...
My two cents on Indochino: Attended a Style Forum Meet-Up at the San Francisco store. Among the many retailers who have hosted Meet-Ups and Trunk shows, Indochino offered the most exaggerated trendy design and the poorest quality garments. Admittedly, even if they were beautifully made and exuded quality, their style, would never appeal to my conservative taste.
