New Suits

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Love hate relationship with this forum : )
Hugo Boss out and two new RLBL purchased.
Now I am really miserable as I have fallen in love with this material..

http://store.zegna.com/us/ermenegildo-zegna/men/suit_cod49133260xp.html

So close to buying this suit except its a three button. I am contemplating having them make it in a two button.

You guys have ruined me.

At that price point, why not go bespoke?

Considering it.
In DC we have: http://michaelandrewsbespoke.com/?gclid=COC9jfzZ0rkCFQai4Aod_TIAFg
Or Zegna will make the two button tailored as well.
Can I get that fabric though any other place. I am literally in love with that fabric!

It's a 3-roll-2.  Which is a style.  I guess you could have them make that one as a 2 button, but why?

 

For retail, that's not a very good deal for a suit.

Where can I get that material for a better price?

Should I consider the 3-2 roll over paying more for two button? Style wise I dont wear a tie and my suits need to be more fashion forward. Ideally the style of Hugo Boss but the quality of Zegna, RLBL.

Nice suit with a nice shirt is my work wear.

Thanks

Why don't you just stick with RLBL?  Are they too fashion forward for you?  They do a MTO program where you can get the RLBL cut in all sorts of fabrics for about $1000 cheaper than that Zenga suit your'e looking at.

I love the two suits I got from them. I will ask if they have a fabric like that. Thanks

Or look into WW Chan - I believe they travel to DC (I would stay clear from Michael Andrews).

If he likes RLBL, I think WW Chan would be a bad call.  The RLBL cut is very specific for a slim fit, which I love btw, but is not something Chan normally cuts.

I am not too familiar with the RLBL cut and I hear what you are saying about pushing your tailor out of their comfort zone, but Chan can be pretty accomodating. I may be biased here, but think you would get a superior fit with them, which I would take any day over a RTW item.
