Next time youre here, get something from B&T. I'm sure you'll be making at least two trips a year. After they get you measured and your pattern drawn up, you can probably get by with 1-2 fittings per jacket and so will be able to get them on a yearly basis. Won't be perfect unless they get more time in, but will still be excellent. And it's a long term endeavor anyway.  

 

@tchoy, at his point, how many fittings does a jacket take for you remotely?

The first suit should take no more than 2 fittings these guys know what they are doing. After they nail your fit you can order your garment by email and it ready for forward fitting when you arrive in Korea.

I've jackets send to me now that fits perfectly straight out of the box.

I could easily order all three of these window-pane jackets here.

Yowza.

Clags, you picked a winnah. Your transformation to steezy #menswear is beginning.
post #5240 of 13878

Clagification please. What is this "steezy" of which you speak?

post #5241 of 13878
What I meant to say was, Clags' new spreezy #menswear steez.

But I only want to be a little steezy. I mostly want to be boring. Boring with a license to steez.

You can try that, but once you put your head down that rabbit hole it's all over. Pretty soon you'll be wearing high waters and crocodile double monks.

I can't wait to see it baby!

Tucking the narrow end of my tie blade into my trouser fly.
post #5245 of 13878

I have the opposite problem. I believe I suffer from an excess of steeze.

 

Perhaps I need to top up with some anti-steeze.

Take a trip to whnay's good taste thread and calm yo tits
post #5247 of 13878

^ Whnay's Good Taste thread was where I posted my very first fit. Naturally I was carved up into little pieces, chewed on for a bit, and then spat out.

 

OK, so I had quite a few positive comments on today's fit over at WAYWRN:

 

 

...but the tie was not universally acclaimed.

 

 

Looks like this is a job for Noodles' Good Natured Advice Thread.

 

After I got home, I decided to swap out the tie for a few others I have lying around. (I'm travelling now, so my choice was rather limited.)

 

 

Tie: Oroton. Square: TM Lewin

 

 

Tie: Anthony Squires. Square: no-names

 

 

Tie and square: Henry Carter. [Apologies for the crap focus.]

 

 

Tie: Paolo Albizzati. Square: Henry Carter Irish linen.

 

Please don't tell me they're all equally bad. I kinda like number 4 despite the pattern clash.

The last one is head and shoulders above the rest. Despite the pattern clash. I'll provide more feedback later.

 

Seriously though. That suit looks wonderful on you.

post #5249 of 13878
+1 for the last one.
post #5250 of 13878
Of the choices you've presented, I'd stick with what you actually wore. The last one is just too much fuzziness for me.
