I had to get this JAB on the spur of the moment but since moving to NYC (East Village) and working, I am going to upgrade the suiting brand quite a bit. If you could elaborate on what the "shows" mean it would be appreciated. I will keep lurking as as I find better vantage points for pictures and better clothing options I will continue to post and learn! I've followed you for a while as a fellow New Yorker and if you have any suggestions for where to get good quality suits let me know.

thanks Gwarg! It's terrible how my love of suits has always been in my head more than anything and I want to bring it to LIFE! Definitely stepping my suit game up to hang with the likes of posters in this thread!

Hi Faribeana88,

As you can see from the above post, I was kidding you about typing "Shows" instead of Shoes in your post. My suits were primary purchased from 2 sources. Barneys, always on sale, and Daffy's which has gone out of business. Sob, sob.

I haven't bought a suit in a while (have too many as it is) but I've purchased half a dozen SCs off of ebay and thrifted maybe 4 or 5 more. I tend to bing on one item at a time. shog[1].gif

Barneys and deals are not two things I normally associate with one another.

Thank you for the compliment. The cloth is from a textile firm in Quebec.

LOL, good luck @ Barneys. I love that place.

Since you are even newer than me, I won't give you grief about that ugly avatar....angry.gif

I have found a number of great items on sale. I've done even better during "garage sale" season.

FUCK!!! that's just me getting excited! I'll amend that, I meant posters...I thoroughly enjoy this site. It has opened my eyes a lot and at 24 years old, I need to show that there is something to wear other than polos/button downs and khakis to work :slayer:

ahahah though I live in NYC, I'm from Florida and the Heat are my team. Granted most people hate LeBron but the full suit from that spread was actually pretty nice...just couldn't find the right avatar. I'm sure I'll change it once I can snap something more "me"

Ede & Ravenscroft bespoke (3+ years old now). Very English is probably a good way to describe the cut/construction, yes.

not directed at me I know, but if I understand you rite I think a jacket in Fresco will work with cotton or linen trews.  In general,  textured jacket with less-textured trews works IMO.  It surprises me that textured loose weaves like Minnis Fresco isn't used for casual odd jackets more really.

thank you!

 

 

 

DC that's a nice cloth!  have to get some extra long sleeves then I guess  cos those cuffs aint for moving
