Anybody here newspaper to "protect" their suits/clothing? I have been doing it for some time per my tailor's suggestion.

Has anyone heard of a tailor in Westminster named Tam Truong?
Yelp review claims that he was trained in Savile Row, and while that wasn't too much of a red flag, it goes on to say he is the tailor for the Steelers and Nigerian heads of state.

Looking for a good tailor in Austin, TX. Any recommendations?

Thoughts on this sportcoat? Style, can it be dressed up and down? Pants to pair it with

Looking at some lighter weight flannel pants from Howard Yount

Are woolen Flannels clearly more casual than worsted pants? Do they work with both boots and oxfords? And would light weight ones still be clearly Fall/Winter pants in appearance/texture?

Also the pair I am looking at has D ring side adjusters. Is this a dressier feature?

First post so hello everyone.

I've been properly working out for about 3 years now, and have reached a stage where buying clothes that aren't t shirts is getting nearly impossible.

My main problem is trying to find a jacket that fits. I'm not claiming to be Ronnie Coleman, but my shoulders are quite broad, and give any jacket I try on the dreaded 'shoulder divots'.

Is there a solution to this problem that a seamstress/tailor can address? Or am I looking at getting a jacket tailor made?

Buying a larger jacket and getting it taken in isn't really an option, as even 116/44 or 46 jackets give me this problem.

I'm 6' and 95kg if that helps

Thank you very much.

You can get almost anything fixed by a tailor, what you have to consider is it worth it? Would it be cheaper to buy M2M clothing instead of something off the rack that you will have to invest $100's of dollars getting tailored? I guess it depends on your budget and what you are looking for 1 sport coat to wear out or an entire wardrobe full of suits. There are many new M2M companies that are reasonably priced.

That would make a nice casual suit, but I don't like it as a sports coat.

I would advise you not to get custom suits made from weird fabrics if you almost never wear suits.

If you only need one suit for the occasional wedding/funeral/court appearance, make it conservative and versatile, grey or navy. As you're in a hot country, tropical wool, fresco etc. If you want a more casual suit consider linen.

Cheapest solution would just be to take it a bit easier at the gym.

Thank you for your reply.

Could you elaborate why that is?  The pattern and texture seem to be like a sportcoat to me.  Is it the color and matching to pants which is a concern?
