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...
That is pretty similar to fit I got from just one measurement in USA. Very wearable and decent, but for bespoke, you might as well pay for one more basted fitting to dial it in a bit more. They can send you back a based version and then tweak it a bit when they are on tour in the USA. As for mine, my shoulders needed to be a bit more forward slope and my arm rotation needed some correcting I sent it back to Chan and they are fixing it now.
Flat silk laces will be more expensive because silk is much more expensive then nylon and they are rare. You can get flat black or grey waxed cotton laces here: https://www.hangerproject.com/closet/colored-dress-shoe-laces-1.html#.ULLbQYWbPJg I have never used them but they look good in the pictures and I trust the vendor.
Above is probably the best suggestion. Good thinking to go high waisted. Body building type physiques can look overall top heavy and gorilla like otherwise. Brooks brothers and http://www.pakeman.co.uk/ Pakeman Catto Cutter may have models you're looking for also.
I could see double breasted being useful around town. For many, not worth $1000+ to make it though.
Their boxers are very good.
Thinking about starting with Ercole's to be my CMT tailor to supplement Chan. Can he do more english/structured styles or is it very italian (I would imagine most of you guys are requesting minimal padding etc)? I have spoken to them on the phone but personal experience would be better evidence. Thanks!
I thought they were both fairly generic, flexible styles? I have a WW Chan and it seems more middle of the road than Italian.
I would try Hemrajani Brothers.
Black neckties look very good obviously. Black stripes on a suit can look good. I have a black quilted barbour I like. Black and tan are a classic combination. Looks good at night, but there is always the risk of it looking cheap or washed out.
