Thank you, I appreciate your respones.

Can someone please answer this question?

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for a belt similar to the Allen Edmonds Yukon. I have decide to not get the Yukon because of some quality issues I have read about in regards to this belt. I am pairing the shoes with the Mctavish in the Natural color. Does anyone have any suggestions on a belt? I have a few dark brown belts but I am looking for something lighter. I thought I found a Martin Dingman at Nordstrom's today but they did not have my size. Thanks for your time.

Just got suckered into a Josabank sale, buy 1 get 2 free + a free jacket.

 

I tried on the stuff in the store, but am feeling buyers remorse. I went with the Signature tailored line (which I think is fused; not to be confused with Signature gold which I believe is half canvassed).

 

In the end I spent $950 on 1 suit, 2 sport coats, 2 pairs of pants and a coat.

 

Now I don't wear suits often, but do not own any and want to transition into dressing up more often.

 

 

Should I return them and buy 1 half canvassed mtm suit for $900?

 

 

 

FYI: I am a big guy (46 chest/42 waist) so the tailored line fit me pretty well in the body, even though josabank is known for boxy cuts. I am also still losing weight (80lbs down, 50lbs to go).

If you are still losing weight don't get MTM until you are at a stable weight. I think you will be fine for now.

If you are in the middle of losing weight, do not but a MTM suit. Also, if you are only getting started with regard to tailored clothing in general, don't get a MTM suit.

 

If you can return the Joseph A. Bank stuff, then that isn't a bad idea, as they are not really known for their quality on this board. However, $950 is not too bad for the stuff you got. Any recommendations for something similar from approved brands is going to cost you twice as much.

 

I assume you are buying clothes now before your weight has stabilized since you need to wear something right now, correct? Since you are still in-flux with regard to your weight, the quality and durability of the suit may not be your primary concern, so, unless someone can recommend a better brand for less, I would stick with what you have.

 

Once your weight has stabilized, then you can spend a little more on a decent suit. Suit Supply and Brooks Brothers (1818 line) are good places to start.

If you like the Dingman, why not order it online or ask Nordstrom's to get one in your size from another store?

Thanks for the info.

 

Will post some pics to check fit when the clothes arrive.

Two options:

1) Ditch the tie

or

2) Wear a sport coat/blazer or thin cardigan/v-neck over
