I understand I'm basically setting myself up to get flamed here, and the age demographic may not be in line with the kind of guys who wear such fits, but this is what young people these days want. Young girls see Justin Bieber, Jonas Brothers, One Direction, or whatever, and they want it. Young boys see it on celebrities too, and want to look like that.   Many tailors have told me the same thing, that all these young guys are coming in asking for their stuff made...
 Medical student, but hope to have a desk job, probably won't even use my MD besides as a resume decoration. I certainly don't need to do jumping jacks in my suit... also, I plan to buy 2% spandex fabric from the Shanghai (or wherever) fabric market and have a tailor make it from that. I don't know why you claim it's for mannequins though, clearly those are all real humans wearing them.
Opinions on the modern skinny fit?   What tailoring houses, if any, cater to this fit? (inb4 "Topman") What kinds of tailoring issues (shoulder divots, horizontal shirt wrinkles) does it create? I (and the young ladies) love this fit, but have found it's actually extremely hard to achieve, and the margin of error is just that much tighter. And that's taking for granted your BMI <20 in the first place (sorry to exclude 95% of this forum! )   Some say, even on an...
WTF happened to Indochino? Anybody *EVER* get anything good out of them?   Working with BlackLapel these days, seem to be much better in their patterns (OPEN QUARTERS, LESS SHOULDER PADDING, etc.). Not digitally cut like Indochino does, so possibly more room for variation between suits, but I haven't found that to be a problem.
Anybody know where Pitbull gets his suits/pants made?   I don't think they're simply OTR + tailoring, though that is possible. How tight they are and the nice high armholes with clean shoulders and no dimples, very fitted pants, etc. they look bespoke.
Is it possible to get less shoulder padding? The default house pattern since the transition to digital cutting is extremely heavy on shoulder padding. I ordered a suit a couple months ago and requested "less shoulder padding" repeatedly but I don't think it made a difference, nor on the remake.   You guys just opened up a shop in town (Philly!) and I'm hoping the in-person experience will allow better communication/explanation of what we can and can't...
DSW's house brand, shameless copies of various models by other mid/fashion brands like To Boot New York and Mercanti Fiorentini.   Anyway I am wondering what the current consensus is on this brand, they have some decent (and very comfortable) dress oxfords for less than a buck after tax.  
Return those jeans, would not pay $10 at Gap for that look and fit.   It's easy to get tunnel-vision when you're surrounded by the internet hype train (I don't even have anything against SLP, I DKDC--don't-know-don't-care) but seriously, those pics you posted look horrifibad.
Remake on the way, but I checked the measurements page and noticed their tailors changed the remake adjustments I put in! That defeats the whole purpose of remake because I specifically compared and adjusted those dimensions...   i.e. I left my shoulder measurement unchanged, because it was absolutely FINE, and I have multiple well-fitting suits to compare to. Yet they randomly decided to -0.5" from it. They randomly subtracted 0.5" from the crotch measurement on the...
Ordered a suit and received it.   -Craftsmanship is a lot better than 4 years ago, I'm totally satisfied there. -Fit according to my input measurements? NO, they edit in some weird way and add 4" here and there, so now it fits horrible. It's dumb of Indochino to do that, they're wasting their own profits on the remakes ppl will inevitably request. -Shoulder padding is RIDICULOUS. Way too much. -Armholes are LOW. Bottom of armhole hits at my nipple line, I can barely...
