4. They don't want to act as walking advertisements.
5. They don't want noobs getting the idea that they can buy X brands and look as good, or getting into the idea in the first place that they should copy other members without attempting to develop their own style.

6. They're Regis, so asking would be dumb.

I think it was established that listing the brands is not a bad idea, that is if the fit is decent.

If you don't want perceptions of your fits to be alter by the 'plebe' brands you're wearing, put it in a spoiler then? Be sure to label it "please only read when you've made up your mind about how the jacket fits!".

Cousin's bar mitzvah is in January, and my brother's wedding is next October—gonna need to start looking for a suit . I haven't seen anything about Thick as Thieves in a while. Are they still doing really good made-to-measure stuff? Might be willing to put money toward one of their suits if they're the real deal for that price.

I've heard pretty mixed reviews.  Go check out Barney's Warehouse - you could pick up a plokhov suit for about $400 right now, which you might get more fun out of than a MTM suit.

Doooon't do thick as thieves. I managed to fine-tune my measurements so my orders turned out OK, but after seeing so many other folks' results, I consider myself lucky. Instead, here's what you should do:

-- if your chest size is an even number and your drop is within one inch of six, you can order most RTW suits online without problems. I like CKC, since Gilt and Yoox always seem to have it for cheap (TBH, though, I've only bought a blazer from them).

-- If you're like me and are cursed with both a chest size that's in between sizes and a drop that's not six, it gets harder to order RTW stuff online. You're better off shopping for separates in a brick n' mortar store. I like Rag & Bone's Danbury stuff at Barneys, which totals at a bit less than a grand. Or Shipley & Halmos if you're not super picky about quality.

You can drop by Uniqlo and find something quite decent for like $250, if the fit is right no one will care it lacks pick stitching.
