Thanks a mill for that link. I see photos all over the internet claiming to be 'classic' or 'modern' fits, but I have never been able to properly judge whether they are. I now know what SF sees as the classic and ideal suiting look.

 

Most importantly, I can look at that thread and look at the photos I have and can now work towards something.

 

Thanks

Michael


Michael,

 

Very happy to help but I want to make it clear that just because the styles around here are considered "classic," and you find a lot of negativity towards the Hollywood cut, doesn't make it a bad thing to choose that as your personal image. It's clear the kid was going for a certain look, an unpopular one around here, but it doesn't make it any more appropriate to dress in a traditional way if it isn't you.

 

Even though we all tend to agree on what a suit should and shouldn't be doesn't mean you have to accept that either... it just might get someone's hand bit if they expect to come on SF and post those pictures looking for positive reinforcement.

Don't choose what's right for you based on a bunch of internet know-it-alls (even though they may actually know it all). cheers.gif

I still think jeffreyd, despos, or a tailor would be good choices if they'd agree. Otherwise I second Manton, Spoo, Edmoral or the dreaded Foo

Woke up this morning to over five grand worth of orders including one for more than $2,500. Every last one from either the USA or Canada. The time difference certainly makes for some interesting mornings

 

What a great start to the weekend. Just had to say how much I love North Americans right now

Good for you. When they're ready, please take good quality pictures and share here or on you website or blog.

Congrats! Like others have said, see if they're willing to get some nice looking photos for you and your site. Get that site updated, pay a student if necessary, and you'll be gold!

Take detailed photos of the construction and finished product if you can.

Greetings Styleforum.  I am new here.... My name is Brian I am from Toronto Canada.  I ironically came across this forum accidentally trying to google reviews for Elite Suits.  I am the Canadian that recently placed the $2500 order with Simon.  After reading his website/blog.  I took a leap of faith and placed my order.  It Consist of 3 x 3 piece Fully Handstitched Canvassed Suits, 3 Egyptian Cotton Shirts, 3 Pairs of Trousers and an Overcoat.  I have not submitted my measurements yet, as I have a custom suit that I am having made locally (Holt Renfrew Coppley MTM).  I plan on using the measurements from that suit and send them to Simon.  I plan on having Simon make me some TOM FORD inspired suits with a similar cut, Wide Peak Lapels, 3 roll 2, Surgeon Cuffs with 5 Buttonholes, Trousers with no belt loops and side tabs.  I will be submitting my measurements this weekend.  Simon has been great with his communication.  I am very excited to see how my first Elite Suit order goes! If anyone is interested I can let you know how the process and the results of the final products.  I have to mention by no means am I affiliated or have purchased anything from Elite Suits in the past.

keep us posted.

 

I've been in contact with Simon and will likely be ordering a suit this weekend. Going to take advantage of the free shirt deal with the relatively cheap Bejing collection suit (with full canvass option). Just waiting to get my measurements sorted out (want to have a few samples to average) and will let you guys know how it goes.

 

I've got a few other suits to compare against, corneliani (full canvass), dolce&gabbana (half canvass) and saba (fused shit ;) )

 

Will do a bit of a writeup as soon as it arrives...after I order it first ;)

 

All I can say is that so far, Simon has been amazingly helpful with fabric suggestions and further information on construction, certainly have more confidence about the purchase. Part of me even wonders if a simple website, very little explanation of terms and maybe one image each for the different cuts would be enough.

So you're allegedly from Toronto and wrote that in what is very broken English? Interesting.

Seems like pretty standard poor internet grammar to me ;)

I'm also wondering what's so interesting about it?

Generally low post count members (<5 or in this case just 1) who post in affiliate threads are deemed a little suspect (ie - paid reviews or alias').
