This is my first post, and in a round-a-bout way Jason is responsible for me finding the forum, so I find it appropriate to make my first comment/post here.
I'm a relatively thin guy who has a hard time finding clothes that "fit" properly. I'm 6' 150lbs and like clothes to fit closely. I was given a suit from Brooks Brothers about three years ago. The fabric and construction are great, but no amount of tailoring since has augmented it enough to where I feel that it fits. For the past few years I've been looking for a suit that was slim fitting, that didn't feel like I was swimming in material.
Through quite a bit of googling I ran across some other forums that eventually lead me to Thick as Thieves. After some correspondence with Jason, I pulled the trigger on a conservative cut suit. This was in the middle of June, and I received the suit this past Saturday.
I was so stoked/excited/elated when the USPS came to my door. I've been talking about suits with friends for years, but never owned one that felt amazing or felt like an extension of myself. Well, Jason didn't disappoint by any means. The suit fits like a glove. The construction is amazing; there is no other word to describe it. Jason's attention to detail is well thought out and very meticulous (the vents under the arms are fantastic).
Jason is a super informative and really easy to work with. There were a few items Jason pointed out regarding my measurements. He mentioned my sleeves seemed a bit short. I had recently been measured for a tux, so I decided to keep the measurement. He accommodated, but recommended I get non-functional sleeves in case I needed them to be let out (Two weeks later I pick up the tux and the sleeves are a bit short, hah). He was right, and I really appreciate the fact that he pointed it out immediately and made it possible for me to remedy the situation easily.
I really couldn't be happier with the suit. I finally get a style that feels like it fits my personality, and how I want to dress, but have not been able to do so before. I ran it past my father, who has been a die hard Brooks Brothers proponent since before I was born, and he just laughed and told me how perfectly it fit me. I believe he now understands why his style doesn't work on me, and that slim fitting clothes are great when done properly.
The jacket is at my tailor getting the sleeves let out but when I pick it up I will post some photos.
My apologies for being long winded and rambly. I look forward to reading through more threads in the forum and taking part where necessary.
Feel free to shoot many questions/emails/what have you regarding my TaT experience.
