Basically, this post is split into 2... and I'd super appreciate help with either or both of them, as I go to Thailand and buy my first non OTR suit on Wednesday.
Part 1 is about what style of suit to get.
Part 2 is about what I need to ask for in shirts and suit (material, yolk, etc).
I'm going to get a charcoal suit in Thailand next week. I'm leaning towards a herringbone pattern, with the most boring two-button Hugo Boss cut.
But, I can't seem to find too many herringbone patterened suits. Are they not fashionable atm? A tiny houndstooth is also an option that I'm considering - but I think I may need to be ab it older to wear it comfortably. I wouldn't mind pinstripes, but I have a navy pinstripe suit and a medium-grey pinstripe suit at the moment.
I'm pretty sure that I don't like windows.
So, how about a fairly dark charcoal herringbone suit?
Like http://imageshack.us/f/822/26935627.png/ but perhaps a bit more of a charcoal than a black.
I am a graduate working at a Big 4 accounting firm.
My first choice is http://www.dress-for-success.com/ (Rajawongse).
I will be getting shirts and the suit.
What do I need to ask for?
It'll obviously depend on what they have, etc... but, the sort of things I'm looking for are:
Double cotton shirt (I don't really understand this, I just want thick, good quality cotton.. but got told to go Double Cotton)
with split yoke
and mother of pearl buttons
I know the type of collar I want, and the colours and styles.
Some for cufflinks, some not for cufflinks.
good quality material - prob super 100??
light shoulder pads
What else am I missing? What suit/shirt material do I want? My favourite current shirts are Herringbone Sydney branded shirts... if anyone knows what the thick ones of those are like.
My suits are Marc CBD suits are Super 100. They were fantastic at first, but are now a bit ballsy, after only a year. And a pair of pants split. And another pair of pants got a hole inside the pocket.... and I've only had them for a year (and only wore them about 105 times (shared between 2 jackets, 4 pants).
So, can I get 'nice' material that is durable? If so, what do I want?
In my mind, Super 120/150 *IS* less durable than Super 100... but Super 100 wasn't really durable enough for me (though, probably would get it, as opposed to getting a lower quality fabric).
Again, any help would be super appreciated!
