I don't think the BT suits look very good. I don't want to open up a proper fit discussion right now, but skinny has nothing to do with proper fit, which these suits don't have. If you want to be measured by a hipster stylist to have your measurements sent off to a far away land to get made then go for it. If you want a suit made with somebody with decades of experience that knows how things should fit and you get to talk to her person cutting the fabric then go to Mr. Ned. All in all skinny is easy. These are the two cheapest options in NYC, fwiw. Cheapest by a lot.
Sounds like you guys are making the decision fairly easy for me. I am still a bit hesitant going to Mr. Ned for a trim suit, since I have never seen him do it, but if you guys all have confidence in him, then who am I to judge?
I know both companies very well
BT makes their suits in a country far far away. nice people. if the look is what you want, then use them, since that is what they do best.
Bespoke is a useless term.
Varm at Mr. Ned can make you a shrunken suit, but needs to be prodded into it.
you would also be best to bring photos of what you are looking for.
Thank you very much for the input. Looks like I'll do some prodding. I'll bring some photos and hopefully get what I am hoping for.
I think that the BT suits looks horrible. Too short, too tight. But, if this is the look that you want, go there. It makes no sense going to another tailor and asking him to duplicate another look. Most tailors would refuse.
On the other hand, if you want a suit that fits, go to Mr. Ned.
That's the problem. I personally want a Mr. Ned suit, which would fit. However, I need a skinny suit for work to fit in with all the celebrities that dress like schmucks at events I go to. If I have to look like a schmuck, then so be it, I guess.
My apologies. I found it posted on another site listed as a Mr. Ned suit. Whatever it is, I like it.
Thank you everyone for your help so far!
