It's terrible what happened to your grandmother; the Japanese were very atrocious, even towards Western war prisoners.

As for words, I think it's more. This is a fashion/clothes forum and I think that the particular member was abusing it for venting his own personal disturbances.

We're in the year 2016, discussing history (on a style forum) is already questionable, abusing it for making pseudo-emotional outpourings and stirring general hatred is another.

Guys, I need some advice. I work in a business formal office, but it is a government office, so people's clothing budgets tend to be modest. When I have invested in high-quality items in the past, they have mainly been dress shoes and casual wear. However, between losing weight and general wear and tear, I need to replace a few suits. I will probably buy two suits somewhere inexpensive for every day use, but I would like one nicer suit for court appearances and perhaps the occasional wedding.

Brooks Brothers has a Golden Fleece in my size, on clearance for $570, but it is pinstriped. My questions are: 1) Would that be too business-looking to wear to a wedding? 2) other than Hickey Freeman, is there an off-the-rack maker who makes suits of comparable quality that, at least on sale, are not substantially more expensive?

Posting a few pics would help a lot. 

Don't concentrate that much on a brand; you have to see how the cut fits your body :D

It's actually 5776 FWIW.

Is it? My Thai friends are always saying 2559.

Perhaps for the Thai, but:

Epaulet appears to be rolling out a $600 suit that could fit your needs, more information here.

 

$600 isn't top of the line, of course, but generally Epaulet will give you decent bang for your buck.

I have a Benjamin Sartorial from eHaberdasher, which I am happy with. $550.
