That's a bit over the line, pB.
BTW, there's a bartender at one of the locals here who looks like what I imagine you look like. He has the hair and everything, but he's more of a workwear than MC sort of fellow.post #54258 of 787227/8/13 at 10:38ampost #54259 of 787227/8/13 at 10:40amQuote:

A few weeks ago I received my first suit from Tiberias Clothing.
Nice looking suit. Does the Tiberias webpage improve once you are a member? It seems haphazardly set up as it is. How are the prices?post #54262 of 787227/8/13 at 10:56amQuote:Originally Posted by in stitches
Well, I guess I could reply to you mimo, and we could bounce this back and forth for the rest of the day, but instead, I have something else to post. ; )
A few weeks ago I received my first suit from Tiberias Clothing. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)I had to wait a for a clear, rainless day, to wear it, and that day was yesterday. YAY!
Regarding the process, it was as easy and simple as could be. The website has a ton of fabrics to choose from, and is replete with all the options you could ask for when it comes to finishing and fit options. Pockets type and configurations, button preferences, lapel size, even what color felt you want under the collar. Its fully customizable.
As far as getting your exact measurement, there are 3 options.
1. Send in a suit that you want its measurements replicated.
2. They will send you a try on that you can bring to your tailor to pin and mark, and then you send that back (they will give you a credit so you may pay your tailor for his or her time).
3. Provide them your measurements and they will work off of that.
I chose the last option. They have a very comprehensive list of measurements to provide to ensure that the fit will be correct. I would note though, that obviously this option will only work if you are 100% sure of your measurements. Dont guess. If you are unsure, either get measured, or choose a different option.
As far as service is concerned, all my questions, and there were many of them, were answered in a friendly and timely manner, and the suit took a little under 2 months from the time I placed my order to the time I received the suit. Suffice it to say, I was very pleased with the service from start to finish.
The finished suit is stunning. The fit is spot on, I dont need to take it for any adjustments. Even the sleeve and pants length is just what I wanted. I chose a Loro Piana super 130s navy twill and it is fantastic, like butter to the touch. The finishing is unreal. Pick stitching everywhere. Like, everywhere. I know some people may not like it, but I love that stuff. The smoked MoP buttons are amazing, and the kissing buttons on the sleeve are just dreamy. Added bonus, little rubber inserts around the inner waist band to keep your shirt in place! All in all, I could not be happier with the final product.
But why trust me? Here, judge for yourself. : )
Apologies for the lighting issues. Could not get ideal lighting for the life of me, indoors or outdoors.

That is beautiful! Coincidentally, I am expecting my Tiberias suit to be delivered today.post #54263 of 787227/8/13 at 10:58ampost #54264 of 787227/8/13 at 11:00amQuote:Originally Posted by sugarbutch
As mcarthur might say, wear your good-looking suit in good health, stitchy.
mimo, I have no inherent objection to colorful socks. I don't post pics of them here because I'm not interested in hearing anyone's thoughts about them when I wear them. Your shoelaces, however...
Yeah, yeah, it's like one pair in TEN! Anyway, objection noted again. :)
(SB, I don't think my line and PB's line are that far apart!)
Man, I can't believe what I wrote the first time. Anyway, glad we're all back to fist-pounding happiness.post #54265 of 787227/8/13 at 11:06amQuote:Originally Posted by in stitches

Very nice suit, but... I don't think sporting a fabric label on the inside of your jacket can ever be considered stylish. I'm also not convinced about the combination of informal patch pockets and this very formal looking fabric. Seems a bit like a stylistic oxymoron to me.
But I'm just nitpicking, enjoy your new suit! (I do hope the construction quality of Tiberias' suits is better than that of their website...)post #54266 of 787227/8/13 at 11:11amQuote:
Im fairly confident that 80% or more of my suits and sportcoats all have a fabric label on the inside. And over half of my trousers as well have a fabric house label inside. Its a tag. not a stylistic choice.post #54267 of 787227/8/13 at 11:13ampost #54268 of 787227/8/13 at 11:15amQuote:Originally Posted by patrickBOOTHQuote:

I am 100-percent confident that this is a subject on which it is completely unnecessary to have an opinion, let alone a strong one.post #54269 of 787227/8/13 at 11:17ampost #54270 of 787227/8/13 at 11:18am
