For example, The suits worn by Gordon Gekko in the movie Wall Street. Made by A&S....

There's a difference between style and uniform. Do you know the difference? I hate to make his head swell but someone like Phat Guido has style. He's able to mix and match cheap items from Uniqlo with besopke items like Chan and make it look good. Also, he dresses down slightly in age but still within his age decade. It's no skill to buy expensive items from just ONE bespoke tailor and call yourself a good dresser. To me the difference is night and day. Any idiot can...

I've always had that thought. Being in NYC you see a lot more of that in women. I can't tell you how many times I've walked behind a hot looking woman who dresses down a few decades only to find out after looking at their faces that grannies shouldn't be...

Even the BEST bespoke looks dated after a decade. Just by the fact that lapel sizes change from decade to decade. Also, I don't think many people have the same body in their 50's as they once had in the 20's.
"One of the reasons I don't mind paying retail (much of the time) and enjoy developing a relationship with a store." With the mark-up at Borrelli I doubt very much they mind it either.

Some of you here dress way beyond your years. That's not necessarily a good thing. If you're a young man why would you want to dress like you're an old fart? Not only that but you're spending tens of thousands to look old. Do you understand the concept of time value of money? The longer you can hold out until you spend your money, the better off you'll be in the future when your age and your cash flow matches the clothes you're trying to wear. If I were a...

I can get the same look by throwing my regular BB suit in the dryer, minus the $4000.
