Hey everyone, I'm in a bit of a predicament.
Just to lay down the basics:
I'm about 5' 6.5".
I weigh about 125.
I need a suit (including all tailoring) for less than $800.
I am using this to go to prom; I'm not getting a tuxedo for many reasons.
I have an average "fit" build- I run track and work out a lot but I'm not that big.
I want a fit like: http://www.gq.com/style/wear-it-now/201006/xavier-samuel-models-cotton-suits-under-four-hundred-dollars?slide=4 (you need to click to slide 4. slides 1-3 are also good but I really like four)
Now I'm going to list out some choices: (ranked in order I like them)
Top: 36/S Heather Charcoal
(should I change to black? should I get 36S or 36R? I'm assumming 36S is for people under 5' 8")
Bottom: 28 Waist, 29 inseam, no cuff
Bespoke Suit from Stephen Seo (no measurements required at this time)
One more day to get the groupon- very cheap bespoke suit.
Outsourced to China I believe and people are skeptic about this.
However, he has designed for the cast of Entourage.
#3 Suit Supply
Have not really looked into this but the go-to choice that many people like.
I could use the help. I feel like Jcrew would look really well.
