What do you guys think of the Saks Fifth Avenue house brand. I saw a Saks topcoat (in black) that had an MSRP of 1000, but was on sale for 200. It seemed like a solid topcoat but I was curious what you fellows thought of the brand. I don't plan on spending more than 350 for a top coat, so it seemed like a pretty good deal.
Do you like the coat? Does it fit your budget? Does it fit well?
If yes, yes, and yes; then yes.

There is no definitive measurement. Covering your butt is a pretty good rule. Some prefer jackets longer or shorter than others. Like hemlines, the fashionable length changes over time.
Not that substantial. You're only talking about cutting open the lapel, cutting it down, and resewing it. Possibly redoing some padstitching.
If the coat is fully canvassed, then it is not quite that simple. You would probably want to put some basting in to hold everything in place before taking it apart. You'll also have to redo the edge-tape along the edge of the lapel, which is slip-stitched to both the canvas and the front-part seam-allowance, and after slip-stitching the edge closed again you'll need to redo the prick-stitching along the edge.
If you're slimming it enough that you're cutting through the pad-stitching then I expect you would also need to re-pad-stitch the entire lapel, as cutting it will leave the rest loose and no longer able to help the lapel to hold its shape.
Hi guys- just wearing a new suit (Coppley- medium grey) and I'm trying to determine if my AE Strands in Walnut are too light of a colour......I should clarify that I'm cursed with colour blindness as well which can cause delusional colour matching choices at times!
I think they look OK but I'm thinking I'll wear a darker shade of brown shoes next time.
Was just at Macy's and saw a gray Lauren by Ralph Lauren silver label sport coat. I don't have one in gray and was thinking it could work to fill out my wardrobe at a good price (with multiple discounts, it'll be around $175).
I've seen minimal references to the brand on the site, but apparently it's not owned by RL anymore and people think the clothes are crap.
can someone give me a reason why the clothes are crap quality and explain why I shouldn't go for it at such a low price?
