this discussion is pointless and talking about the price/value is boring.

tempted to post a fit

haha, there is some green in there.

It's actually a pic I took the other day. I was almost half-hoping for an Ireland win. They just try so hard and they're still so shit.

The suit is not as bad as you guys are making it to be. 2k in the bespoke world isn't that much, But I agree that you can get a much better fitting suit for under 2k.

 

But it seems like there is some underline (Understatement of the year?) hate for CDHagg... I am curious to know why that is the case. Did I miss something?

Well, since SW&D people know much more about tailored suits than MC people do (obviously), I guess I'll just have to burn the suit. (10)

Seriously, though - you guys have lost all credibility with me. 

The caveat here is that MC is more likely to say nice things about dogshit, or nothing at all.

Fuck that guy posting the Prometheus gif.

If you would like help with sizing your bespoke suit, please ask here. This thread encompasses all questions that could ever arise in the clothing business*.

*exception. You will not be able to find info on 70s wash denim. But that's a given these day.

My brother went and decided to get a suit done in Beijing instead of Hong Kong like I suggested. He paid 110 USD and got this: Rx7CW.jpgWRhav.jpg

Thoughts? I think the button stance is 3/4"-1" too high and the jacket maybe 1"-1.5" too short.

edit: also, it didn't cost 2000 USD

People here even said it looked fine or even pretty good, but honestly, for bespoke, pretty good isn't really good enough.


True Bespoke (take measure/pattern made/sew-stitch/measure/sew-stitch/measure/final sew-stitch/measure/tailor) don't con't $2k.  Honestly, I don't think you can find a true Bespoke under $3.5k.  But maybe you can, it's been a while since I looked into it. 

 

The problem is finding someone that can do patterns, most just want to measure and make the pieces on existing patterns and the adjust or send out to have made.

This is really OT, but you can, quite easily. I only know about the UK and Japan. Maybe not on Savile Row, but just in London, Graham Browne or Sims and Macdonald in Holborn will be able to make a fine bespoke suit for $2000. (Surprisingly enough, there are some excellent tailors in Tokyo who will make you a bespoke suit for some way short of $3500 too).  BTW, almost all good tailors have a 'house style' so even with bespoke you are almost never starting from scratch, unless you are very unusual in what you want...

Really?  Okay, thanks for the clarification.

 

I need to buy a fucking suit but I am going to get a Margiela or Balenciaga and just get it altered.  The idea of fittings over and over doesn't appeal to me and I just generally hate wearing suits.  I prefer a jacket/dress pant, less stuffy looking imo.
