Help: LA suit

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm gonna be flying into LA on Tuesday for a family wedding and will need to get a suit there. Fwiw I'm a size 36s, not the easiest, and have already planned a trip to hk and will have ww Chan custom tailor, so this is more of a situational crisis.

I was thinking cabazon outlets might be my best bet but would love to hear suggestions where I might go. It's obviously also limited time for tailoring so finding a good selection/fit is even more important. I was thinking maybe light solid grey or closest thereto.

Given your size, Suit Supply is a great option.

I don't know where you are going to be staying, but I would also say that Suit Supply is a good option, and the LA location is fairly central, on North Robertson:

 

http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/store?StoreID=stores-LosAngeles

 

405 N. Robertson Blvd. 
Los Angeles,  CA  90048 
United States

 

That is also pretty much right beside the Beverly Center, where there is pretty decent Bloomingdales, as well as several menswear stores.  So, lots of choices.

I assume that means it is open already?

One of the last things I did before posting was check suitsupply website ... I didn't think they were open in LA and thank you both for the advice and correcting my misinformation!

I haven't been there, so I don't know, but in any case, it's literally 5 minutes walk away from the Beverly Center, where there is supposed to be a store in store for Suitsupply:

 

ADDRESS
8500 Beverly Blvd 
Suitsupply shop-in-shop @ Bloomingdale's, Beverly Center 
Beverly Hills,  CA  90048 
United States 
Tel. +1 (310) 360-2771

SuitSupply in LA (on Robertson) is definitely not open yet. Last time I went past a week ago it didn't even look close.

 

My bro-in-law is about your size and got a great suit in the boys dept of the Ralph Lauren store on Rodeo (near Santa Monica Blvd). There is also a large Brooks Brothers next door.

The Cabazon outlets might be a good resource, but bear in mind that they are long way from central or westside Los Angeles. A trip out to the outlets and back will take up most of a day.

Another option of that sort might be the Block at Orange, which has a Saks Off-Fifth, a Neiman-Marcus Last Call and a Nordstrom Rack. Bear in mind that these operations usually do not offer in-house tailoring and alterations services.

Although it might cost more, a retail store with in-house tailoring that can provide a quick turn-around might be the best option.

You will be very pleased with Chan.

I would definitely go with this option, even if you are feeling that you are not getting the best deal.  Since you have to do this quickly, expediency is key, especially in LA, which is not quick to get around in quickly.  

 

Tell us how things went.

 

Cheers,

 

Fok.
