Basically between $500 and $1000 USD.
You might also check Bonobos. I think they do half canvas construction on their stuff, and have some decent looks for good pricing. I've seen at least some of their jackets with functional button holes. Also, maybe Charles Tyrwhitt.
Another thing to consider is one of the more reputable online made to measure options out there. Most of them offer surgeon's cuffs, and their suits usually start at around $500.post #30348 of 334553/27/15 at 9:08ampost #30349 of 334553/27/15 at 9:27ampost #30350 of 334553/27/15 at 10:00amQuote:
I've had both. RE may betwice the price of AO but they are more than twice the quality. My AO ones had slack joints and poor enamel, the RE ones seem much more robust and better built.
I have a pair of blue flash RE Concorde aviators if anyone is looking to buy - PM me!post #30351 of 334553/27/15 at 2:08pmQuote:I've worn both, at various times over the past 20 years. I've found both to be of excellent optical quality, excellent "mechanical" quality, and very similar in terms of style, comfort, etc.
But I believe you when you claim that your AO's were disappointing. I can't say that this has been my experience, but quality control is never a 100% thing, and maybe you just got the freakishly rare bad example. Like the Toyota Camry which was less reliable than the vintage Jaguar, or the quartz wristwatch which was only accurate to +/- 2 minutes per day.
You sure it was a genuine AO, though? And not a counterfeit item, purchased from some guy at a flea market in the Village, or from an eBay seller located in China? Just wondering, is all.post #30352 of 334553/28/15 at 12:14amAny thoughts on what would be a good choice for a fourth sportcoat? My wife got me a giftcard to SuitSupply as Christmas gift so I was thinking of using it towards expanding my humble wardrobe. My collection currently is comprised of:
2. Grey herringbone
3. Blue herringbone (cotton
I was thinking of getting something in brown (wasn't sure if I should get medium or light though). But then I read somewhere about green being a good choice as well. Anybody have any experience one way or the other?

Because the dress code only allows for black and white, so there are no choices to be made. It is formal wear, i.e. dressing to a prescribed form. Colour variation removes it from the realm of formal wear, hence it is, then, no longer a Tuxedo.post #30354 of 334553/28/15 at 7:58pmAbout black and white tie.
Black, grey and white are not colors being they are only shades from darkest to lightest. In other words they don't change a color, let's say green, into another color, only darken or lighten when adding. Adding blue, yellow, or especially red that is a whole different ball game.post #30355 of 334553/28/15 at 11:23pmQuote:Originally Posted by greger

No grey for black, or white, tie. Not really sure what the point was there, but black/midnight, and white, are the only colours/shades that should be making an appearance.post #30356 of 334553/29/15 at 12:05pmQuote:
Somebody asked about why black and white for after six and not color. Didn't notice my reply was a page or more late. Anyway, color and shades are different.post #30357 of 334553/29/15 at 12:31pmpost #30358 of 334553/29/15 at 12:49pmpost #30359 of 334553/29/15 at 4:00pm
Can anyone suggest some MTO programs that will allow me to request a shoe that has a wide forefoot, wide midfoot and narrow heel cup in width? Will they also build/form a special insole/footbed for me? I have very little volume due to collapsed arches. My price range is under $1,000 and it would be best if I could visit the company/one of its stores to try on shoes/get measured by an expert.
Do any of the popular companies we SFers love to buy from(particularly Carmina) offer this? I will stray away from AE and Alden as I am beginning to enjoy sleeker looking shoes. I was never entirely sure if MTO was like MTM in suits in that you can attain a better fit.
