Similar style and better fit? For sure. Same price point? Not exactly.

I picked up a couple RLBL v necks on B&S pre-switch that were a decent deal and fit me great. I also grabbed a couple custom fit cable knit silk PRL v necks on sale at Saks for like $35 a pop and they fit tremendously.

Generally house brands at Saks, Neimans and Bloomingdales will have tons of colors to choose from in a similar style to J Crew and, because they are the house label, are far more likely to be had for steep discounts around sale time. Accordingly, these will not be the best of quality, but if J Crew is the control then they will be well in the same league, if not slightly better.

tailor help needed....

I'm looking to buy a Paul Stuart suit off ebay. Pants are 32x 29.

I'm a 30 inseam and the seller said there's 2" cuff that could be let out. My question is this - if a tailor let's out that cuff, can the tailor still remake a cuff that's smaller? (ie a one inch cuff?)

I just don't want to go to non-cuffed pants. and i really like this suit! biggrin.gif

Because I think of a Paul Stuart suit as being more trad (stereotypical I know) I can only imagine the suit with a 2" cuff. When I think of 1" cuff I think of skinnier pants and a less traditional cut of a suit. I think I could see a 1" job on Phineas a lot sooner than mainline Stuart. Call me old fashion.

does anyone know what kind of suit this is? would you say this is an off the rack brand name or a made to measure? I assume since it's the Prime Minister it's tailored but you never know... either way I think it looks very nice

thanks

Sleeves are too long it seems but that's a bespoke suit from Richard James I believe.

hi, first time poster, any advice on fit/ possible changes? thank you

make the tie alittle shorter. should be about your belt buckle height, maybe hem the pants a bit.

post #9642 of 30713
Agreed. Tie needs to stop right at the buckle, and the pants need to be taken up a little. And the shoes are too elvish for my liking.
post #9643 of 30713
You could shorten the shirt sleeves by 1/4-1//2 inch as well.

Thanks for this. The jacket has some pattern to it, does that necessitate a solid shirt if the tie, as picture has stripes? I notice the shirt in the picture has a stripe.

Most of the ties I wear are striped regimental, don't want to have to many patterns clashing.

I was looking around eBay for italian shirts and I'm having trouble figuring out my neck size. I measured it myself and it's around 15.5, but when I search for shirts with that neck size most of the times the chest size is around 22/23 (my chest is 39"). Should I go down to 15 or keep the 15.5?
