I'm new to this forum and this site has great stuff! I wanted to get people's opinion on suits.
I am looking into getting a Bespoke/custom suit in the near future, and I am currently researching on style fabric etc.
I never really had a suit except an oversized blazer, and an off the rack graduation suit which I only wore 3 times since highschool grad. I don't fit in it anymore but it wasn't that stylish to begin with.
Now I'm currently looking into a bespoke suit, something that will last me years. My budget will be around 1500-2000$. Now that I'm more fashionable since my grad all those years ago, I really want a well tailored suit. I want a suit that represents me, a jack of all trades bloke, an everyday suit something that is versatile, durable, unique and last me years. Does that seem like a tall order?
So far I've narrowed the colours between navy and grey.
I've been looking at tweed, I really enjoy the texture and weeve, it also feels warm, I know it can't be worn in the summer since it is a heavy material.
I would like people's opinion on:
1)a durable fabric- that is light-medium weight and can possibly be worn all year round
are there any lightweight tweeds out there? or a tweed blend? Something that isn't too heavy but durable and has a pattern?
2) a suit style that will always stays fashionable?
3)Other fabrics that are durable, not too formal?
4) If anyone had a suit made, what was your experience? Recommend any good tailors that are in Toronto Canada, Poland or elsewhere for a reasonable price?
