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.

1 MC poster gave a detailed critique, 1 MC poster said it "sure as hell doesn't look bespoke", and 7 MC posters said it looked pretty good.

 

Look, guys, I don't really care that much.  I wasn't even asking for critiques in the first place.  This whole conversation is stupid.  Sorry, I should never have posted those pictures.  confused.gif

 

you dropped 2k to look "not bad"?

I'm working on a bespoke suit of my own.

Making it myself, even.

It's taken waaay more than eight fittings to get the shape right, and even then my fabric supply is pretty low. It's really hard to get new fabric.

Wait hold on one sec, I'll be right back

I said put the lotion in the basket! Goddammit if I have to ask one more time...

Sorry about that, where was I? Ah yes, suits.

Hendrix me and you need to take a 1 credit community college photography class I think. Its pretty hard for me to get an idea of what that fit actually looks like. Prob pretty good tho.

Just don't want another hobby that I end up spending ludicrous amounts on.
