I think you just have to properly communicate your expectations.

Not as easy as it sounds sometimes!

Since it's MTM should I have to worry about getting an American cut or will it be slim enough to contour to my body?
I'd assume that even the MTM may lean toward the "American" (a.k.a. fat) cut so if you don't want it to wear like a Hickey Freeman or a Brooks Brothers Madison you need to be pretty explicit up front.

I am looking to get a few suits made but don't have any clue about fabrics ... suit construction ... no problem ... fabric ... a little bit of a novice.  

 

Question is where can I find good information and once I bone up on that information, what is a good online option to purchase?

sorry posted a new thread then saw this, I apologize.  My question is darker shade of brown or tan/lighter brown shoes with this suit.

As well as any other suggestions to dress shirt color besides light blue and purple.  Thanks

I'm in the market for a Gloverall duffle coat (mid-length) and I wanted to know how they fit. I'm usually a 36, should I buy 36 or go up or down?

I wear mine over suits and sweaters. I'm a 38 and bought a size 38 Gloverall duffle.

My question is about PRL Custom-Fit Dress Shirts.  I'm looking for something that isn't too long that I can wear untucked cleanly with jeans, the only time I can stand the look of a dress shirt tucked into jeans is when I'm wearing layers.  But I also want the versatility to be able to tuck the shirt in and throw a tie on.  The PRL website says that the custom-fit is "Cut closer to the body, with shorter front and back hems", but how much shorter?!  

 

I know the typical solution to this is buy a "sports shirt," the problem I encounter with that is the medium fits me perfectly in everywhere besides the neck(in every brand, not just RL), almost all sport shirts at 15-15 1/2 neck side at medium and I'm a 16.  I swim in a large.  

 

I don't suit up very often, and dress casual the rest of the time.  That being said I need as much flexibility with my wardrobe as I can get, you know money and all.  It would be very nice to be able to find a coupIe shirts that could fit both bills or jeans and slightly dressed up.  I wouldn't mind any brand recommendations to fit me needs either!  I live near Jackson Premium Outlets in NJ and have RL, J Crew, Brooks Brothers(even their slim shirts are quite baggy), Banana Republic, Gap, Tommy Hilfiger and a few others at my immediate disposal to make up for lack of funds.  

 

This might help,

 

I'm 5'9, 42" chest, 32" waist.  

 

Thanks you!

Which shirt looks better? Sorry for the craptastic photo quality.
BB2

BB1

BB1 feels a little tighter in the shoulders. BB2 feels a little too loose.

Bump?

I think your problem is the belt!  BB1 looks a little tight in the shoulders, BB2 looks better but are the sleeves too long or just poorly ironed?  It's hard to really tell without a couple angles!

Wash the BB2, you'll be fine.

Thanks, does that also mean I should stick with buying BB2 shirts in the future?
post #16918 of 30966
Is there a such thing as a "half suit" or "partial suit"? Or am I just such an insufferable pedant that I can't stand the phrase "full suit"?

Repost:

Does the watchband need to match the color of your shoes/belt?

For a starter blazer, what color would you get? Mostly the all-purpose blazer but more so for casual use.
