I like it enough and I think part of the issue is how Yoox presents things. Question is if I can take something that looks good enough and make it look great. Canali makes a quality canvassed suit that I couldn't otherwise justify at retail prices. Anyone else have an opinion on suit (good, bad, etc) -and tailoring this to look more modern? Thank you.
Hi folks... Did a search and didn't find anything relevant within the last decade. Yoox has some Canali suits on sale at present. Example one and example two here. Can anyone weigh in on whether these are any good? The style looks a bit dated (?) with 3 buttons and a more baggy fit (implied by 8" hems). Not a lot of info to go on by provided by Yoox. To be honest with myself, I like the idea of getting a Canali for
Hi guys, quick question. Is a suit like this at 50% reduced price worthwhile, or complete rubbish? Presume it's fused, etc., but the price point is quite low. (125 GBP for the full ensemble.) http://www.johnlewis.com/john-lewis-tailored-italian-check-suit-jacket-charcoal/p771635
Thanks for all of the responses. Returning has been the consensus. Now I need to break the news to my tailor -- who really isn't ripping me off. He's charging for making half of a MTM suit, since the original size is too large. (My sister bought it for me; I hate to shop.)
Just went to the basement and picked up a suit I thought was Zegna but was actually just Zegna cloth. Scammers. Thanks to the SF and AskAndy, I exposed this common deceptive practice: http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/f...p?t-51503.html. Question is, I bought the suit for $450. Is a suit with decent fabric worth $300 in tailoring charges to make it fit like a glove? Everything in the suit needs to be engineered. My tailor will make it look great. If you think I...
right, but eBay has at least a 7-day delay. I'd need to buy something this weekend.
Kind of an emergency for an upcoming conference in NY: When you urgently need a new dress shirt, but don't have time to sniff out a deal, or to have a bespoke one created, what brand offers the best bang for the buck? This would apply to shirts available in any major city. I generally feel that retail is overpriced, seeing as things always go on sale / bespoke is better, but is there a brand where the MSRP is "good enough" / satisfices? Slimmer fitting is...
Are you satisfied with the suit? What's the update? Thanks.
I believe these are on par with BB quality. For $20, that's not a horrible price for monogramming and a fashion-forward cuff/collar. Your thoughts? http://www.paulfredrick.com/shirts/shirts.aspx Enter W5RDAA at checkout to reduce price. Shipping extra.
Thought you guys might be interested in this website. It shows a century of fashion at one of America's biggest and most conspicuous corporations: http://www-03.ibm.com/ibm/history/ex...ywewore_1.html IMO, they looked good until about 1990.
