I only have one suit (BB Fitz navy...which actually looks black in most light...) but agree with the sentiment that navy is the staple color for the first suit. Navy > charcoal . I do have 3 navy blazers though.
Do you think its possible to tailor the Barbour Liddesdale quilted jacket? The large fits me well in the chest but is very big everywhere else. Think its possible to take the sides and sleeves in? And this is for the regular version....I am aware they have a fitted version but the one I am looking at is the regular.
Casino Royale is one of my top sartorial films. Quantum of Solace is related by default I guess, love the style in both films (the navy cardigan and Tom Ford clothing)edit: Craig's Bond and ^^^Inception are my favorites for modern style.
He was definitely going to charge me for the hem and waist but it was probably because I was going -3 inches. But regardless I went to another tailor since I need my suit within the week and the BB tailor was backed up.BTW is the suit navy suppose to look black? It's a very dark hue and at first I thought it was the wrong color, but the packaging confirmed it was indeed navy.
OP clearly you are just going to have to post pictures of yourself wearing those measurements to prove your 12" drop
I have a 10" drop due to weightlifting and consider myself relatively small. I can see how 12+" is reasonable for a former college athlete. Also, and this is purely out of curiosity, why assume that he wears his pants too low? I thought hips would be wider, not smaller? Or perhaps my squat butt is larger than usual haha.
Are alterations usually free? Hmm I wonder if the SA I talked with was pulling my chain. Their on-site tailor was charging me for the hem, sleeves, waist, etc and for what seemed very expensive. I ended up going to my usual tailor instead.
Question: Picked up the Sterlingwear Authentic and sized down a chest size for a slimmer fit. Everything looks great but I hate the boxy shoulders. Anyone had the shoulder pads removed? How did it turn out?
I also find the Regent to be slimmer than the Fitz, but alas they don't make solid colors for the Regent! Shame too, since I prefer side vents to the Ftiz's center vent but I needed a solid navy suit more.
Did you get an odd size or a less popular model? I know BB raised the prices of the shirts recently but I always thought the solid 2 button Fitz suits only got as low as ~$500 ($550 after s/h and tax) But not sure about the final word. Anyone care to elaborate on if the suits do get cheaper? Because I'll return my purchase and wait if it does...
