For those of you who think I can get something at something around $500, do you have some recommendations for where I could find something in a trim fit in 36R in a RTW. The few guys with the same size as me on this thread can vouch for how difficult it is to find anything in your size OTR. Both the blazer that I have in navy and charcoal - I paid full retail for because it was impossible to find anywhere.
So for sportcoats with a slimmer fit in 36R in NYC - any recommendations?
Regardless of how many shoes you have, $900 would be better spent on shoes (Edward Green, Lobb, Vass, etc.) than the SC you are considering.
However, if money is no consideration,I would keep the SC as it looks good.
