Can anyone compare DH and Balenciaga suits to Jil in terms of fabric/construction?

SAT comparisons are acceptable.

If you search CM you should be able to find makers then you can look makers up in suit thread. I've been happy with the jil / raf suits I've had, full canvas, solid fabrics and good drape

If it's just for interviews, an h&m or uniqlo suit will still put you above the competition just by fitting well.  Interviewers will frankly be weirded out if an intern shows up in a thousand-dollar suit to the interview.  Go for cheap fabric + good fit and save your money for beer or things you actually give a shit about.

 

For shirts, get one or two calvin klein collection on yoox when they pop up, usually $40.

How does Suitsupply compare to TaT (might need the MTM option)? Do not care to drop too much on a suit either, but uniqlo suit seems a little extreme.

great fit, why is this not in WAYWT thread?
post #713 of 846
While definitely very good, uniqlo is not the solution to cm problems.. Unless you're really perfect stock size, I feel going mtm at a trusted local tailor is going to have better results.

Stacking on suit pants. Are fades next?
post #718 of 846
I feel like Devoa's proportions are getting a little too exaggerated- the pagoda shoulders plus super slim pant hems ends up looking odd to me. Which is sad, because I want to like more of the suiting.

stripes and stacks on that look pretty off to me

Dope suit. However, the nitpicker in me says this:

 

Lapels look like they've been ironed flat, perhaps by the dry cleaner. I've had moderate success reviving a decent roll by slightly dampening the crease (front and back) and ironing it flat. I use an old shirt as a pressing cloth to avoid ruining the fabric.

 

Also, suspender buttons  for additional MC points.
