Noodle seems to have forgotten why Formosa suits were recommended in the first place Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I hate you too
The things SF'ers would do for style.
I looked up and went to a tailor shop near work. It was about a 30 minute walk. The closer I got to the shop, the farther away I was getting from..."civilized area." People started looking at me as if I didn't belong there. When I finally arrived, the shop looked like a dump but found a fellow Korean gentleman at the door. He was an older gentleman and I had a bit of trouble understanding what he was saying at certain points. I just made sure that I got 1.75" cuffs and no breaks on my trousers. Now I can start wearing all of my Formosa suits and start my journey on OJT with the light gray Kent Wang trousers.
Not sure if this is appropriate--Clags et al, delete if necessary--but in the spirit of this thread's focus on building a wardrobe of staple items, I have a recommendation. For those who need a versatile warm-weather navy sportcoat, SF affiliate Khaki's of Carmel is selling a lightweight, fully canvassed, almost unstructured navy hopsack from Ring Jacket for $636. Size up one from Eidos/Formosa if you have any mass whatsoever (I'm 5'9", 152 lbs, and by no means bulky, and the 40 fit my usually-a-38 frame perfectly).
