I'm looking to pick up a few more suits. Most suits are far too loose in the waist, even a lot of "slim" fit ones. I'm looking to spend $3-400 per and looking to buy 3. As of right now I just have cheap and ill-fitting JAB & MW suits which I plan to replace with one of the following. Stats: 42R, 5' 11", 182lbs, 32w/32l, athletic build. So basically the 3 options I'm considering...
- So I tried on some Italian made Baroni's at Frank's Custom Tailors in Boston today. They looked nice, would need waist suppression, Super 150's. All tailoring is included in the price and I could get 3 for $1100. Not a steal but reasonable considering all tailoring in included. They guy/place has been there 37 years and gets fabulous reviews.
- M. Valentino- Would be from Wizard of Ahh or whatever the name of Jeff's eBay store is. I hear he offers an Ask Andy discount too and I think charges an off eBay price of around $280. Supposedly slimmer cut than the Baroni's which he also sells (under the Danielle name now). I think I also heard that the new M. Valentino's are better than before.
- Benjamin- Found limited but positive things on his suits. He's a member here, they run $4-500 per. Limited selection. I did see a few reviews where they were compared favorably to much higher brands. I also heard one person say it was much better than M. Valentino.
