Much better than Zara or Topman, no idea how they compare to jcrew.

 

Their MTM line is pretty great for the price.

Excuse me while I go fondle my new Armada AKJJ's and Look Pivots that I won't be able to use until next winter.

I got a suit from them right around when they first came to America a couple of years ago.  Really solid, reasonably well made suit with fabric nicer than J. Crew for less than the cost of J. Crew. If I remember correctly, their whole deal was buying overstock fabric from Italian mills and making their suits in China to save a buck.  Still pretty nice, lots of details that you'd find in higher end stuff.  For a typical person in SW&D, it's definitely more than enough for an interview/funeral/wedding suit or whatever. If you're actually going to a store, their salespeople are reasonably knowledgable (NYC) and the in-house tailor does pretty good work, which is always a plus.

 

I had a Zara suit a bit before that, it cost about half of the Suit Supply suit post-alterations and was pretty poor all around.  If you're looking for a pure beater suit, just buy separates from Uniqlo, if you want something that at least somewhat compares to high end stuff, spring for the Suit Supply.

The cut of the thighs on the trousers is really slim. I couldn't find a cut that worked for me.

Quote of the year from an online publication...

"Carol Christian Poell, an Austrian designer who bears many similarities to Martin Margiela with his transforming garments that can be worn more than 5 different ways."

post #95445 of 109053

Wore my painted Blue Blue Japan Sashiko jacket yesterday.  Looked, imo, and that of many others who should know, really awesome.  Makes for a very graphic, color blocked, effect.   Definitely something to wear with white high top sneakers and jeans for full effect.  May be one of the outfits I may need to put on WAYWT.  I understand more and more Margiela's interest in painting over everything.  Really does give it a new life.
