I have been trying on suits for my upcoming wedding and wanted to get some thoughts:
Z Zegna Charcoal Mohair (i like the fabric much more then the suit)
Boss Black (don't really like Boss or their quality, but I tried it on anyways)
Isaia in Black:
Tom Ford in Black
This is a sample jacket I tried on at a Bespoke shop which felt great and has a great look
Finished jacket at the same Bespoke shop (a tad small), but I really like the look and fit...
Very similar to the Tom ford suit, accept most certainly better put together and completely hand made.
I have never done a Bespoke suit before and I am a little hesitant at the "unknown" factor of having something made. With a RTW suit, its tangible, you can try it on and see it... With Bespoke, I guess its not.. Haha maybe I have trust issues letting myself go for it, fearing it won't turn out as I had imagined for the wedding.
In any event, I feel good about the tailor and I like him and his shop.
The biggest I am really having is with picking the fabric...
Had been pretty set on a black suit, but I also am really liking a nice charcoal solid option as well...
He has thousands of book fabrics to choose from, but are there any specific brands or an actual fabric you would recommend?
He showed me some fabrics from Fratelli Tallia di Delfino (super 140) and Zegna (8.5 or 9oz i believe)
The wedding is going to be in a warm -> hot climate but I would like to be able to wear it for occasions throughout the year in Canada as well...
Been doing a lot of reading on here and I know the fabric question has been asked 5000 times, I just figured I would toss it in with the suits and other questions.
I appreciate your time and thoughts!
That Tom Ford Black really slims you, if you like it I would go with that. Random question what are the lapel widths on Tom Ford suits?
A lot of people here don't like black suits. But I don't like tuxes very much. I am having a black suit made for my wedding as well. I think it's the right choice if you want the tradition look, but still want to wear it on night outs, etc. Much more versatile than a black tuxedo.
