I'm hoping to pickup a nice suit around Black Friday if possible. Budget is about $1000. Moving up from a Brooks Brothers 1818.

Went to the Zegna outlet today and I think their couture suits will be around $1k on Black Friday, but they only have a few in the store.

Does anyone else have any suggestions on where to get a good deal on suits either on Black Friday or after Christmas? Located in the SF Bay Area. Thanks!

Hey guys!

 

Thought I'd try and quantify all the great info in this thread by creating a spreadsheet haha. Sorry if this has already been done, but I haven't seen one floating around.

 

Let me know if there are any categories up the top that I'm missing in regards to quality.

 

Tried to incorporate price from a US Perspective, but if enough Europeans, SE Asians and fellow Aussies pitch in I'll make a separate spreadsheet by region to try and give us an objective(ish) view of value. But first I need to fill in all the other sections like canvas, cloth type, handwork etc....

 

As a busy man I'd really appreciate if people could pitch in and help me fill these sections out, otherwise it's probs gonna take me a few weekends. If you guys could post in this thread or comment on the sheet itself I'd really appreciate it! Goal is to include every brand even the shite ones, so that those new to suiting can see why that cheap $150 suit is not worth their time in clearer detail.

 

Thanks a lot in advance to anyone kind enough to help! (yes this is also my first post!!)

(P.S. if people really pitch in I'll also do one for dress shoes, ties and shirts)

Updated spreadsheet to include the canvas type of all listed sits. Also added a little info on pricing, cut, hand-work, details etc.

Will keep the updates coming here and there, over the weekends or as people help out.

 

Secondly added in the brands

·         Loro Piana

·         Benjamin sartorial and

·         Mj bale

 

Lastly if any mods or high rep members want access to edit the spreadsheet just pm me or post in this thread and we’ll set it up.

Cheers.

Hi all, I love this thread and have referred back to it dozens of times, as a lurker over the years.

 

Occy, thank you for creating the spreadsheet! Might we consider adding the following brands:

 

Andrea Campagna

Chiaia

Zilli

Sartoria Castangia Platinum

Hunstman

Spencer Hart

i have one Chiaia wool pants ( actually two,just different colors). no experience of their suits and scs.

 

tons of handwork

 

and IIRC,the tag is same with Borrelli.

quality at least equal to the best borrelli,not the ordinary one this days.​

Thanks for that Nelly and coloRLOw!
I'll add them to the brands that need to be added list, except for huntsman which I'll add to the main list.
When people provide some information I'll be able to add the others to the main list

Hi Occy,

 

I recently purchased one of Suit supply's made to measure suits in Super 160, they come fully canvased and have a decent amount of handwork. Great deal for the price, I would recommend placing them in the "Very Good" category. I would also possibly consider moving the La Spalla line to the very good category as well.

Thanks gamerfry.

Will update after work tomorrow.
Any other suits in very good you would be able to compare it to?
Also what was the pricing like for you?

Cheers for the feedback!!

You're up late! (Or across the pond from the US) I would say it's better than RLPL's current offerings. I paid $1300 USD, but that is with all the bells and whistles, top of the line everything. I believe they start much lower. It is fully canvased, has quite a bit of handwork, and extra details such as pleated shoulders, monogramming in multiple locations etc. The super 160 fabric is of great quality and has a huge selection of patterns and colors for everything, threading, lining, under the collar(which I got in a fantastic blue suede). Overall I'm extremely pleased and definitely think it is insane value for the price. I would only place it a bit below my borrelli suit, although that isn't MTM.
