Nope. In fact, any jacket or suit that comes in S/M/L sizes should be avoided.

Now, I'd say based on a size M, youd probably be anywhere from a 38 to a 44... But you really just need to try them on, there is no way to say "Oh, you are a size 42." Furthermore, every manufacturer's sizes are different--sometimes different within the same maker but different models. For example, I have coats from size 38 to 41 that all fit me roughly the same.

I'm a BB customer in NYC and am considering MTM. If quite happy with GF when I can get them for 30% off. Here's my question: Would a suit from Mr. Ned be better for less money? I know the MTM suit would fit better, but are the fabrics and construction going to be better as well?

With most MTM, you have the option of picking from a wide variety of fabrics. Depending on where you go, you can get some really nice (and pricier) stuff that should be on par with Golden Fleece. As for construction, that really depends on who is making the suit. For a $1000-1500 MTM, the construction may not be up to Golden Fleece levels, but fit is more important anyway.

Other than a tape roller, what other method do you guys use to remove lint?

Is there a better way?

Thanks

MTM is tricky!! Don't count on your first being perfect--- you'll find out that you need a few more from the same maker to get it right...

What color shirt and pocket square should I pair with this suit and bowtie? It's for a Christmas party. 

700

The white for both that you have there works nicely- sometimes the simplest choice is the best.

Agreed. You could get away with light tan or light beige or pale yellow for either shirt or pocket square as well, but I think what you have there is quite nice.

Lint roller works great. I have a travel one for work in my briefcase, but at home I use one of these -

Do you have to remove the lint from the brush manually every once in a while? I've only ever used lint rollers.

Yes, but I promise you it's not a big deal. A few hand-strokes over the trash receptacle and it's in good order. If it's heavily covered in lint you can use a wet washcloth or some masking tape.
