Its all about hitting your personal sweet post where price, styling and construction intersect. For me its Mytailor bespoke/mtm (not sure which it is, honestly..shirts fit well though) with mostly Acorn fabrics, Vass shoes, WW Chan/NSM suits and an SR one for special occasions. I think hand stitching on shirts just makes them too delicate for my lifestyle and serves no function purpose. Thick buttons are worth it. I am too hard on my clothing for all SR or bespoke shoes...
Cosi on The London Lounge seems to have a very good tailor in Bucharest I dont have any more info than that I'm afraid.
Maybe this is some kind of juxtaposition statement with less formal suit and tie and very sharp ridiculous high collar, but it looks awful and insecurely begs for attention. That shirt is clearly meant for worsted (the collar meant for an ostrich). I dont think this would be considered good taste by any justifiable measure. It is the shirting equivalent of patent leather shoes with a flannel suit - yuck!
Trousers absolutely. With a jacket, you are flirting with Woody Allen / College professor territory so tread lightly.
They look fine to me. You would get more wear than that wearing them to cross the street.
That looks like a pretty good choice. FIlson is good. On Permanent Style blog Simon Crompton had a post on leather bags that was good. They were all around $1000 range I think. Jacket and tie seems excessive. You will be dressed more formally than professor (even if its MBA class in my experience)
American style is definitely its own animal but much more influenced by the British. Soft, Campanian style tailored clothing is only worn by a very small percentage of Americans. Walk down Madison Avenue during the week and you will see 85% of suits are standard boxy American cut for an American build. On the subway, I will occasionally see young guys in narrow trousers, double monk straps or longwings, 3-2 soft jackets, probably loud socks and immediately know they...
Too louche imo. You could really only wear them with sharp evening wear. During the day you would like like a miami club promoter or rich middle easterner in london. Im sure many will disagree with me though.
Thanks, Munwar. Styleforum wouldn't be styleforum if at least half the replies werent snarky and unhelpful or self-consciously ironic.
I am seriously considering this outfit to make some new hard wearing, basic work work suits for me. They come to New York often, and offer a bespoke pattern with multiple fittings, cut in London, and sewed in India, for about 1,200 pounds. For me, this could fill a need. I don't really mind where the suit was sewed as long as it fits, looks and performs well.In my $~2,300 price range, Chan can be great for some people but, I am not completely happy with my fit through them...
