Hello everyone, I'm new in here and I thought it would be good to briefly introduce myself. My name is Armando, I'm 25 years old and I'm from Mexico.
I recently found this forum, cause I love wearing a suit or a sportcoat or blazer, I recently found the love to wear this kind of clothes. So a year ago I upgraded my complete wardrobe, back then, I only had one suit, a black Massimo Dutti 130's which I used for my prom.
I love fitness but this has become a big issue. I have a big back compared to my waist (42' - 30'). So when I bought all my new suits a lot of work had to be done. In fact my personal tailor is still wornking on some clothes. I think he has done a marvelous work considering the alterations the suits needs.
Now there is a lot of information in here that I wish I would knew back then when I bought my suits. Especially in this part: "Many highly priced brands (e.g. all but the highest quality Armani, Hugo Boss) sell fused jackets." from this article http://www.styleforum.net/a/what-kind-of-suit-should-i-buy. And that is because I bought all my suits without knowing what was a fused jacket of a full-canvased jacket. So I bought one Armani Collezioni, two Giorgio Armani, four Z Zegna suits and two Hugo Boss blazers, keeping in mind that I wasn't buying the top suits but at least some good quality suits and now to find out it is not, it's quite dissapointing.
But anyway I will open another thread to get the response on "What suits (brand) I should buy?" for later suit/jacket shopping.
Thanks, I will try to participate the most I can.
