Your suits likely required 11 meters of this stuff at a theoretical cost of $4000 for cloth alone. Its good you got 2 trousers per suit since Super 180 cloth is not known for its longevity. Its the type of suit to wear once a month as the Super 180 wears away. A Huddersfield, England, cloth in a Super 90 in 12-13 ounces is the bulletproof type of cloth one should consider in longevity. I would take the shirt back for further fitting as the neck appears so tight that you can't even button it. The combo of an unbuttoned shirt and loosened tie might look cool around 10 p.m. but otherwise just looks...disappointing.
Thanks Michael. He actually told me after the fact it was 180; it might be BS but it does have a certain gleam to it. I'm happy even if it isn't though. Yea about the the tie n shirt, is it standard to button the very top button? I have never worn a tie that wasn't clip on before today (and that's when I was a very young child) so I'm a little new with it. I tried to tighten the knot on the Windsor, but it makes the small tapered end pop out from the side. Perhaps it's also why the tie is coming up about 3" short from belt line as well. Thanks again for the opinion and advice, I appreciate it. Cheers, Tony
