RTC, congrats! Well deserved, since you seem to have been working really hard for it.

Also, congrats on the kop Noodles, that suit is a beauty.

Navy odd jacket from B&Tailor. Something from Suit Supply. Codpiece from Panta.

I think I can wear odd jackets once a week or something. I will look get a light grey trousers and search for a staple odd jacket.

The next Noodles project should be Formosa bespoke. Greg will make sure you dont do anything boneheaded.

@gdl203, he just compared your RTW Formosas to blended nutrient shakes.

 

 

I gotta agree with Noodles here. Though I also encourage him to try B&Tailor, not for fit reasons, but for stylistic ones. Stylistically, RTW Formosa and bespoke Formosa are going to be similar. If RTW fits Noodles well, there isn't really much need to go bespoke (though that small need is balanced against cost, so if bespoke isn't much more than rtw...).

 

A better analogy might be dry aged porterhouse versus a regular porterhouse for a patron who will largely won't notice much of a difference between the two. If RTW didn't fit Noodles very well, then it might be something like a dry aged porterhouse to a stringy select cut. Or if he was Foo, he'd obsess over the shortcomings of a superb regular porterhouse, then order the dry aged porterhouse, and then proceed to use a red crayon to draw outlines of the regular porterhouse on his napkin.
