Look at other affiliates threads. Then think...what do i see here? then look at this thread and say...what do I see here? One will be high quality pictures, reviews from users, construction pics, etc. The other will be an aggressive sales pitch. See which one does better.
If you dont like the thread, dont buy a suit. Youve given him your feedback, move on with your life and stop being an e-douche.

Hey facet, thanks, I agree with what you said about sleeve lengths, it's the shoulders on the shirt that aren't quite wide enough.

Additionally, to all of you I'm going to have to say something in support of Michael. I know for a fact that among Australian youth (I am one) too-slim is in style, stretching the buttons and all.

I'm sorry, but there's no way in hell that he won "Best Dressed" wearing that...unless they were making fun of him and just wanted to memorialize his stupidity. That's just plain ugly. You can't tell me that when the genius behind the "Hollywood cut" came up with the idea that he/she had THAT in mind...."shorter jacket" my ass.

 

It was for his prom man...give the kid a break.  He probably did better than most of classmates.

his client base seems to have a strong Aussie presence

I would think people with that "complexion" can be found in the United States as well, or is your America white? confused.gif

Ah, yes, my bad for not reading carefully enough.

I thought that would be unsurprising considering that he's based in Sydney, but in saying that something he wrote earlier about the breakdown of his business made no mention of Australia so I'm not so sure.

The high schooler could have gone to H&M to get that suit... The wedding party could have rented theirs... These photos do your brand no good, man. You've been in business for a couple of years,surely you have better samples? confused.gif

I presume most people merely skimmed his text wall.

you have to admit the suit jacket is way too short and slim (fit) isn't synonymous and should not be compared to being short in length.

It's the combination of the two things that tipped me off. Why don't you ask where he's from if you don't trust my judgement?

As a young-ish, slim man in Australia I do not endorse the above statement. In fact, I don't see anyone wearing suits in this 'style' out of the 7000 professional employees in my building. The only time I see this fit is on Asian boys who decide they want to 'dress up' for their big night out clubbingicon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif.

 

Regarding Elite Suits, I just can't seem to get past the website and for an internet based organisation that should be a huge worry when tryong to attract new customers.

I didn't say what the suit would be suitable for. I agree it isn't a work suit, but I am glad you acknowledge that it is a 'style'.

This affiliate thread as dissolved into a shit heap. I think a moderator needs to take a look at some of the more retarded posts IMO.

Michael - It will do no good to argue with people on this site. SF is dedicated (at least the MC side) to a general adherence to long established style rules. Traditional markers of timeless style are what people gravitate towards and the picture you're describing couldn't be much farther from that ideal other than it being called a "suit". The Hollywood cut quite honestly looks like he stole it from his sister's closet. Too tight, too short...

 

I don't think anyone is saying that the poor fit reflects badly on EliteSuits, they are supposed to make a suit to customer's measurements and they probably did... It's just that the customer doesn't make for an effective endorsement on a conservatively minded site such as this one.
