I'm sold. (not like you had to convince me, I'm up to 3 suits as it is!)

obviously SF is a big part of my base, but I do sell to guys outside of SF

Any expansion is going to be small and baby steps...esp on items like the knits where it's not "made to order" and I have to carry an overhead. The sweaters in particular are a good seller to non-SFers

An overcoat would be great. Something like that double-breasted overcoat that yfyf wears in a lot of his WAYWN entries would be very nice.

Thought I might post here instead as my PM might have slipped Jason's notice. Was interested in getting a or two suits from Thick As Thieves. I think you've mentioned there's an option of providing cloth for the suit jacket interior lining. Just wondering length would be needed? Also, I'm in Melbourne, Australia - how much would a suit range from? Cheers!

An overcoat would be great too. Good ones that aren't way too fat and long tend to be pretty expensive (just like good-quality suits that fit).

This is wonderful news. The lack of lightweight wool (7-8oz) in your current selection is one thing holding me back from purchasing. The stretch material would also be a wonderful addition.

Hi Jason,

My PM may have slipped by as well, but I was interested in getting 1 or 2 suits and I live in LA. Could I stop by and get fitted? thanks

Do you have any plans to get more pinstriped fabric? Maybe it's wishful thinking on my part but a red pinstripe suit would be so badass.

^^^ I don't carry a lot of pinstripe because I rarely get any interest in it.

Los Angeles magazine was nice enough to do a small writeup on Thick as Thieves in the latest (february) issue on page 132 & 133!! Needless to say, I was stoked and surprised the editor even heard of me.

That's awesome Jason! Too bad about the lack of demand for pinstripe, I think they're really cool. I just started working again (I'm only 19) but I'll definitely be picking up a suit from you this year; I've only got one right now, and it's linen.

Sweet, congratulations Jason! I'm glad I got my order in before the inevitable rush that follows good publicity.

When I first glanced at that post I thought for a moment that TAT had unexpectedly veered into the pink underwear arena. Clearly it's late and I'm tired if the thought of bespoke tighties doesn't sound that strange to me....

I recieved my suit yesterday and it's nearly perfect. As in it's something as I would expect from a professional tailor and something that would cost me 1-2K easily. I'm blown away by the sharp tailoring and how well it suits my frame. I'll have pictures and a full review up later.

Firstly I must say that Jason is a God among men. He was very helpful during the e-mails, answered all of my questions quickly, and the delivery was fast! It was shipped out on the 26th and I recieved it the 28th. Which is amazing considering I placed the order on the 12th I believe?

Secondly, the suit fits perfectly. The shoulders I were worried about, because I was quite sloppy about the back and how I measured them. But no, they are fine. The best part, actually. The waist is very supressed, just like I asked, and looks absolutely gorgeous buttoned or unbuttoned, giving it a nice versatility. The sleeves are simply spot on. They may look a little short in that perfectly posed correct posture position, but trust me in a normal stance they are just peeking out it is perfect. The pants are perfect, no/extremely slight break and tapered down near the end.

Thirdly, this is my first suit ever, but it will not be my last. Too long I have been to stores like Macys and went in away in disgust when the smallest they have is a 36/38, and I am clearly a 34. Disgusted by the low slung arm holes, the huge baggy sleeves and unflattering pants. This is the first suit I have ever owned and I am proud to own it.

Fourthly, the fit is near perfect. As in this is something I would expect from a professional tailor as if I actually went in and consulted them. Hell, this is something I'd expect bespoke almost. I have very, very, very slight nit picks. Nit picks as in, I am wholey satisfied with the suit and will never have an issue with the fit, but as in it is not perfect.

1.) The pants are a little too tight. I told Jason to have them be relaxed and thank god I did! But I am just unaccustomed to pants that actually fit, since most RTW dress pants hang like sacks of fabric. They are flattering and in no way bad, just smaller than I expected. This is not bad, just something I noticed. Still, very amazing.

2.) Now this is just extreme nitpicking. Maybe armholes slightly higher and chest slightly smaller. Now I don't even know why I am posting these "nit picks" because they are probably my fault. The fit is actually spot on, as you can tell. In fact, these nit picks are only things I would expect that a fully experienced bespoke tailor would catch by the 3rd or 4th suit.

Overall, I am blown away. I have gotten so many compliments already. I would have never ever thought that I would get a suit that is not only my size, but also my style. Short, slim, and supressed. All this for less than $500!? This is insane. Something like this is something I would have expcted to pay $1500 for at least, and probably a MTM program at a huge store/brand or maybe even bespoke. But over the internet!? Seriously? I will be buying more suits from Jason once I actually get a paying job. Seriously, to have a suit that fits me and is affordable is nothing less than a dream come true.

Now, off to find a leather jacket that won't break the bank but still looks flattering on my tiny frame...

lel - looks great! i'll have to watch out in seattle for a skinny guy dressed up in a TAT suit! the only "major" gripe i had about mine was in how the sleeve was attached and its final angle/positioning. it didn't fall really naturally on my arms, but i guess that's something only a bespoke suit could fix. and one question - did you choose less rounded quarters, or are those the default ones?
