You can't wear belts and braces. I read it in Andy's Clothing Encyclopedia.

You didn't give me a number. I know when I'm being passively dissed.

Whatever. I could totally rock TF. That'll be one 38XXS, please.

There's a picture or two of me floating around this site somewhere that show how small I am. You may actually be taller than me. Plus, I've got about 25 pounds on you. So, I think I would win the most unfortunate looking TF model award. I'd be like a 40XXS with a 5 inch drop.

What do you call luxury, bobo boy?

I have an MTM Attolini. It's OK, but not all it's cracked up to be. If I were still doing RTW, I'd stick with Zegna. Attolini is not worth it.

To me, RTW brands are more alike than different, probably because their limitations stand out more than their differentiating factors. The important thing is to find a store that knows their product well, so that they know how to manipulate the MTM and fitting processes to get a good fit.

Non, avoir du temps libre c'est aussi un luxe qui est hor de prix et qui n'a pas de prix.

Hope you are not burning Hermes catalogs to keep warm there in Socialist Canada. Your fellow Montrealese are driving me up the wall.

He said earlier in the other TF thread that he wears a 34-36 in trousers. I guess that might help matters, but still he is talking about going up to a 44R (54R) which would mean his drop is 8 to 10. If that is the case it should be no problem achieving the TF silhouette. But then again so should a 42 (52R) with that waist size.

Is there a term when the drop becomes a negative number? E.g., 40 chest, 44 waist?

I don't have my Ask Andy Encyclopedia handy...probably because I never got one...so I can't consult it.

I found that Attolini that was suposed to be my size (52L) felt very tight. 54L was sloppy and threw off the silhouette. Perhaps I am just a 53 in Attolini (which they don't make) but I think the real answer is that their cut does not work for me.

I'll get back to you in a few years when I get to that point.

I think I'm just going to do bespoke because honestly I don't want to shop around at 80 different stores for suits. I know some of the general attributes I like and I would like a world-class tailor to use his skill set to make it happen. Thats it. I'm sure 80%+ of the executive clients @ bespoke tailors do the same and don't read up for years before buying a bespoke suit.
