MTM Dinner Suit from Suit Supply - Seeking Advice - Page 2

post #16 of 19
Thread Starter 

OK. So I went to SS today and spent a decent amount of time looking through fabrics they have available. The guy I worked with, one of their MTM specialists, was friendly, knowledgeable, and fun to work with.

 

To be honest, it's really difficult picking out a color from a small square of fabric. It's really hard to tell which is black, which is blue, etc. Once I began to get the hang of it, though, I found a few possibilities. I never hit something that made me think I found THE one, but I did come some good options, and they might actually be exactly what I am looking for color-wise, I just might not know it. The fabrics I was looking at were mostly by Ariston, though there were also some by Vitale Barberis.

 

Although I don't know if they had this fabric, my post-visit search of Ariston and Midnight Blue came up with these pictures. What do others think of this. Still too blue?

Sorry to resurrect, but what did you end up going with? And what did the final cost turn out to be?

I'm currently debating whether to go OTR or MTM with SS's current tuxedo offerings. Their 38L OTR fits perfectly in the sleeves, though the shoulders are very wide. Conversely, a 36R fits perfectly in the shoulders, however is nearly an inch too short in the sleeves. Since SS suits all have functional buttonholes, lengthening the sleeves would leave the button comically high. Altering the 38L, conversely, would be quite expensive. I'm curious as to if MTM is the more logical choice.

No. MTM on SS run at a grand or more, does it not? At that price point just go with Panta if you are in NYC. I love SS but Ed's quality is at least 3 times better, plus full canvas - etc. Three fittings ensures a top fit.

I guess I should have prefaced things with my budget and location.

I was in the DC SuitSupply, though I will be in NYC next weekend so can look for options there. My original budget was $500 but it looked like it would be a couple hundred dollars worth of tailoring if I picked up one of the OTR SS offerings. I couldn't get a specific MTM price point without scheduling a consultation, but the salesperson said they started at $800. If a MTM SS tux is more like $1000 then I'll have to look for other options.

Is there anywhere else in DC or NYC to get an acceptable slim Tuxedo for <$700 (including tailoring)?
