Not DC, but do you have a good retailer in Boston? If not, I'd really recommend Stel's. Check out their website: www.stelsinc.com. I think that you would find that your stuff would be a perfect match with their current lineup, both in tone and pricepoint. And the store itself is really pretty well set up. I think that a fashionable suit at a reasonable pricepoint would do great on Newbury Street.

Yeah, I went to the Bloomingdales SoHo display the day I got the e-mail about them starting to stock Sacque Suits. They've got a good selection, and it'd be nice to take advantage of their sales + credit card promotions. However, the smallest size they stock is 38R, so I'd have to go to the other stores for a 36R :-/ The new suits look wonderful though.

I recommend Relish in Georgetown -- owned by Nancy Pearlstein, daughter of Murray Pearlstein of Louis Boston fame. She carries fashion-forward suits by Paul Smith and Bogioli.

No good stores ever come to my town. :-/ Well, American Apparel is opening here actually, and I applied.

Tom, do you still not make suits in short sizes?

I think Thomas' price point would be too low for Relish and as cool a store as Stel's is I see it as being much more streetwear than fashion-forward suiting.

James in Tysons II in the DC area might be an option, although they have much more of an Italian vibe going there, carrying Canali, Corneliani, etc. Niccolo in the mall in Georgetown carries similar stuff (Belvest, etc.) and could be an option. Circle Boutique in the Dupont area might also be an option as they carry a mix of streetwear and less casual clothing.

Also please note that Alexander Hamilton apears to just have his top button buttoned.

Period sacque suits were often times FOUR button, which today is considered absurd by many smart dressers. I sometimes used to have my three button corduroy blazer with only the top button done, and I got no negativity...

I find it amusing that Sacque suits are the sworn enemies of sack suits.

It's just a name.

Hard to please

Well, fortunately for yourself you will probably never cross that threshold.

Oh, and if you're going to appropriate images from my articles at least have the "Sacque" to give proper credit, wouldn't want any copyright infringements Im sure, old boy.

Unfortunately that is an inaccurate attribution.

Again, it isn't about your inner thoughts and desires, merely a question of due credit. I am not D/B/A as FNB.

Film Noir Buff and Tommy Cheese,

Keep your squabbles out of the fora. If you must, blast each other by PM. This has been going on for a few days now, and frankly, I'm sick of it.

Whoever launches the next attack will be banned, no questions asked, no further explanations given, and if there is, in my judgement, any retaliation by the other party, that party will be banned too. I've got my finger on the ban button right now and am not adverse to using it. So take this warning very seriously.

Do not fuck around any more.

Fok.

Is it me or does every one of these exchanges include links to another forum? Hmm...

Sorry for going off topic.
