I'm glad you posted this. I build a suit on the online config, and it came out to $648. How can that be, if the 1818 suits are more like $1000-1299? Is MTM not 1818?

I moved to a cold, miserable city last year and tried to make do with my existing trench. It wasn't up to standard. I'm tempted by this budget parka - it's slim fit, lined, with a detachable fur collar. 100% cotton. Will use on the coldest days for a 20 minute outside walk in the financial district. On less-cold days, I'll use a more stylish classic trench. SF, what say you? Good value or waste of...

I know it's a year later but...has this been sold?
Ben, you keep getting all sorts of requests to add MTM, half-canvased, fused suits with different silhouettes. Can I just say that I think your existing Benjamin suits & sportcoats are just great? I only have one so far, a solid navy Classico II. I would have bought more, if only they were more regularly in stock & came in a wider variety of fabric. Keep it up!
+1, I wear this with everything except black shoes (which I never wear anyway): https://uniformwares.com/shop/152-series-pvd-rose-gold-walnut-leather
There's enough fabric to let them out quite a bit (Ben, can you confirm how much?)I have a 36R Classico II with 30-inch trousers. I had the tailor let them out at least 1 inch without a problem. If I had sized up to a 32 inch trouser and had the tailor take the waist in an inch, I fear the seat and legs would have been too baggy for my taste. If I went with a 38R to get a 32 inch toruser, then the jacket would have been much too big as well.I'm 5 foot 11 inches, 160 lbs.
What do we think of a light grey solid jacket like this? To pair with navy and charcoal trousers, tan chinos, and dark blue jeans? http://www.nigelhallmenswear.com/item/Nigel-Hall-Menswear/Contrast-reverse-face-blazer-Arthur/FTM
I'm going to be showing up at a major financial institution every day - what's the best way to wear these without looking like a goober? Get a lower cut and wear the trouser leg outside? Tuck it inside? get a lower version? 6", 8"? http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/31178?feat=506769-GN3&page=men-s-l-l-bean-boots-6&attrValue_0=Tan/Brown&productId=197697
Reviving this post - I'm going to be commuting by foot in a snowy, northern city (guess which one). It seems like the LL Bran boots, and the Sorels, are the forum's choice. Are either of these comfy enough to walk to and from work in (30 mins each way)? If not, what would you recommend instead?
