the suiting can be tough because the pant fits can be so wonky. some of the brands will have ULTRA-slim pants with an 8" rise, others will have wider cut, more classic trousers.
OS stuff is too structured, it's very traditional english styling. cantarelli will drape better. it's hard to visualize it from the website shots - they're on a model and they're clearly an intentionally snug fit - but think something like these boglioli showroom shots: look at the dude on the far right. killing it. swap out those pleated pants for some slim MMM ones and the MMM hidden belt, and blamo. look at that patch breast pocket, so fucking BARCHETTA bro.
Stitches telling someone not to buy from NMWA what the fuck is going on
sitting in my closet cause its 101 degrees today. i like barena but i don't think it'd be right for regis. barena is more engineered garments-y (or even paul hardnen-lite for some of the pieces).
yea yoox pics are just garbage for everything. the brands you'd probably do well with are brunello cucinelli, boglioli (i'd start here), cantarelli or isaia. you could also try something like barena but i think that'd be a little too casual for what you're going for. also just look for jackets not suits. this jacket for example http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/blue-linen-and-wool-sport-coat-with-red-windowpane-2718.html would look absolutely sick with those...
You should try the Italian brands. Putting on a true well shaped unstructured jacket is a revelation
there's a difference between buying into a brand and buying into an aesthetic. you can accomplish the margiela aesthetic with lots of other brands, which can sometimes do it better (or fit better). fit matters much less for shirts than something tailored. also most of regis' pieces aren't the really design-heavy ones - no oversized hadnknit shawl collar sweater, etc.
its not so much evident in the latest picture, but in a lot of the others you can see the shoulder line extend past your natural shoulder, and it seems like the upper arm/upper armhole is tight as well. sometimes dimpling along the shoulder lines. i know you love margiela, but have you tried on a lot of other suiting?
no margiela suiting has a particular silhouette - boxy shoulders, high armholes, a very '80s style european eurotrash/club vibe. the sleeves are long, low button points, lots of single-vents.i just think that regis would look better in something like an unstructured canterelli, which would also probably accomplish the same thing aesthetically.
apc derbies. haven't really bought much in months (paying for a wedding is crushing), but always a sucker for suede also have a few more things on the way (hurray sale season)
