Samuelsohn and Paul Stuart Thread - Page 2
I wonder what they charge for a three piece suit?
The vest is about 450 more.
Getting a fully canvassed mtm 3 piece suit in H&S fabric for under 2k is a great value.
The H&S fabric discount wasn't advertised as part of their mtm event. The SA just mentioned it in passing, and they had 4 swatch books full of disciounted fabrics. They had everything from heavy/tweed like fabrics to tropical/light fabrics. They also have some amazing pin stripe designs.
Wow, that seems oddly high to me. Are vests hard to make?
Edit: not saying it isn't a great deal overall for a three piece MTM suit, but the price for the vest being almost the same as the cost of the pants or the suit jacket seems odd to me.
I've always wanted to ask this question, but there's never been a thread for it--'til now. As a Torontonian, my closet's full of Samuelsohn stuff; as a student, it's all been thrifted. What does everyone think about older Samuelsohn in terms of quality and construction? I have a bunch of really recent suits and sportcoats--and I love them. But I've also picked up a lot of older Rosen-sold Samuelsohn stuff (say, '80s and early-'90s), that still holds up well. I'm talking about back when Samuelsohn tags listed only the chest size, and the Rosen tag read "Harry Rosen / Gentlemen's Apparel." But whereas the newer stuff that I've seen has ranged into the super 140s, the older non-Tilford stuff is heavy as hell and almost bulletproof. I guess that's why it's survived, but does anyone here still wear old Samuelsohn with the wide lapels?
Harry Rosen's house brand "J.P. Tilford" is made for them by Samuelsohn, I believe Rosen runs a MTM sale twice (?) yearly and that would be a good time to go suit shopping. I purchased an unlined Tilford navy blazer this Christmas from Rosen. It's made from the Loro Piana Storm System fabric and is really an awesome piece - super versatile.
Is there a difference in the construction between MTM and RTW Tilford? I was looking at the trunk show and it looks like they follow the models of their RTW but substitute in material and details only. I am wondering if the actual construction of the suit is better with MTM.
Hey folks, selling a custom Sammy Grail item if anyone is interested:http://www.styleforum.net/t/355534/insane-samuelsohn-custom-navy-sportscoat Also have a RIDICULOUS and custom prince of whales in a wonderful fall pallet (13oz premium superfine) that was worn for literally 2 hours.
