I was presented with the chance to buy a MTM suit for around 250 bucks. It's a guy in LA who outsources to Thailand and charges a markup. After seeing the garment, I decided that it was not worth it at full price. It is, however, worth the 250, in my opinion. Notwithstanding, I ordered a one button peak lapel in charcoal. The suit fits great (the sleeves are 1/2 inch too long - what are you gonna do?), but the position of the button is a bit low. I didn't specify, but I imagined that it would lie mid-stomach, or a couple inches above the belly button, more or less where the top button on a two button jacket would be. In fact, it lies much lower, around the belly button, the same level as the pockets. More like where the bottom button on a two button suit would be. Am I crazy or is this just too low?
