Box Suit Guy

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
New member but long time viewer. I had to ask this question about the 'Box' suit syndrome I read about here. I have several HF suits. I have a 46' chest and 38' waist. The Italian suits I put on take a lot of work to make the lapels lay flat and deal with a severe case of puckering across the back of the shoulders. I don't want to pay more than a $1,000. Any ideas? I would like to wear something more tailored.

It sounds like you'd be better off with made-to-measure. If you make it down to NYC frequently, there are a few options for under $1000. I don't know about CT.

Thanks for the advise. I get down to the City on business but always found the prospect of going cold into a men's shop without knowing who they are.

I don't think CT does MTM, though they might alter a few things for a bit extra. Their suits look more geared towards thin or athletic men is the only thing.

I think he meant CT as in Connecticut, not Charles Tyrwhitt. That said, has anybody ever compiled a list of MTM and bespoke tailor options in NYC, along with prices and quality judgments? I've heard various names mentioned, and I know several people have posted comparisons of Logsdail and others against Chan. It would be useful to have all that in one place so people can get the best bang for their MTM buck.

Is this a cruel joke? That exact thread used to exist, pre-Crash...

Oh yeah, I forgot about that! Sorry, that's probably where I got the idea.

Thanks for the posts. There has to be a resource on where to buy MTM suits for guys who are hard to fit but don't want to spend a ton of money for every day office wear.

A couple of options in NYC around your price range are Mr. Ned and LS Clothing. Other members with experience can chime in, or you can search the site for previous discussions.

Are Sacque Suits made to measure...?

No.
