Anybody own one of these? http://www.store.joshuvela.com/product/black-leather-zip-backpack

Happy with it? Does it have a laptop sleeve?

Think I'm going to get my next suit from J.crew...they actually look pretty good and I like the navy / gray wool selection. I'm not one for MTM and want to avoid anything too gimmicky in terms of cut / styling.
Just need to be more attentive to lapel size, button stance height, and jacket length. Everything else like shoulders fitting is just learning how to size. Think I am a 38S / 36R based on J.crew's normal cut of clothing.

I feel like it will be a huge step up from Uniqlo.

yeah. uniqlo suits kinda suck. button point is way too high, material is kinda shitty, and i always get buckling at the chest.
post #72517 of 98133
Whenever people ask in the Uniqlo thread, I think they make for great beginner suits on the whim especially if you can get during sales.

I can't complain about fit / material as I find both up to par for me. It is the button stance that bothers me the most as it causes the area between my natural waist to hem of jacket to have a balloon effect.
Aside from J.crew I think Yoox is a good alternative.

Do you know or just saying because it is J.crew?

I remember trying on their Bower pants long time ago and seemed good with the single pleat. Just needed proper hem and taper.
post #72523 of 98133
ive tried on lots of jcrew suting. the pants are ok on deep discount (I like the higher rise).

the issue with j crew suiting is that a suit is gonna run you 400 - 600, and for that price you do a lot better. i'd be looking at brooks brothers milano.

Always thought BB was 800-1000

And I feel like the J.crew is slimmer whereas BB is much more traditionally cut / fuller body and trousers. I'll give them a look and there is a shop near me.

RFT story about BB:
I once ordered some BB slim fit shirts and had to return them since too small. I took them with me to a mall around Irvine / LA (forgot) and the first thing the SA told me was "YOU KNOW YOU CAN RETURN THEM VIA MAIL?"

...OMG you asshole.
post #72525 of 98133
the milano cut is very slim. bb is 800 - 1000 full retail, 600 or so on sale. the quality is much, MUCH better than j. crew, and i personally think the styling is much better.
