I have a pair of Neumoras and they 100% do not have any elastic in them.

Hello there everyone,

 

I'm looking to purchase a custom suit in Manhattan and I hear that Suitsupply is the way to go. I did a quick search on this website and found some random things about it, but I was wondering what some of you thought. For the price (1-1500) is this a good place to get a custom suit?

 

I'm looking to make this a go-to suit, so charcoal is probably my best bet, correct? 

 

Thanks for your time!

I have no comment pro or against SuitSupply MTM but you might also want to read about Kent Wang's MTM program as it is popular here. I think a local tailor could make you a nice MTM suit with a lot of customization (more than Suit Supply I am sure) for about $1500 so consider that as well

Is light weight flannel an oxymoron?

 

I want to get some woolen pants that are not worsted and which have some texture (because it looks better to me and also more casual-I love cords and oxford cloth for the same reasons).  I have it in my mind that I really want flannels but I sit in an office all day in temperate San Francisco. Honestly I have some tweed pants on the lighter side for tweed and they wear pretty warm when temps are in the 60's

My.Suit or Suitsupply is what I'm hearing. Which one would you guys suggest for a custom suit in Manhattan?

Love RLBL Black Label's slim cut, sharp shoulders, and not overly skinny lapels. Can you recommend anything comparable, preferably at lower price point? J Crew Ludlow comes close, but I fear the lapels won't work with average ties (3.5 inches or so).

My first suit was RLBL and if you can work it then I would suggest Zegna Milano or Zegna Torino (tad bit slimmer than Milano and RLBL). But I see that you are looking for something cheaper so I guess I am not really helping. But just to let you know.

My quick question;

 

Should I wear light colors on overcast/cloudy days? For some reason it doesn't feel right.

Hey everyone! I'd like a nice pair of jeans that I could wear with a pair of OSB Navy Trail Oxfords with Vibram soles.  Any suggestions?

Any recommendations as to where to purchase good dress belts for skinny men? As in, I'd get Brooks Brothers, EGs or one of the trad staples, but with a 27" waistline, most of the belts I've come across won't fit.

Thanks, Rudals. To be honest I can't stomach either at retail but I'll be scanning for both on eBay and B&S

It's easy to make belts shorter, just not longer...

Only if it's the "trim to fit" type. Many belts I've seen are riveted with a set length.

I was trying on a suit with which I fell in love. While the tailor was pinning me up I was playing around with the inside pocket checking out the tag, etc. and one of the pins on my sleeve pricked the inside (interior) of the jacket just behind the lapel. It made two tiny pulls in the fabric, which are almost invisible to the naked eye, likely because of the dark fabric. I mentioned it to the tailor and they thought I was talking about a slight wrinkle, which could be pressed out.

Anyway, I left it pinned and declined purchasing right away. I feel bad, and I am imagine since it's the interior not many people would notice, but am I being obsessive (i have a streak) or do these things happen and I should get the suit I want, or should I walk away....

What do you think?
