I have to wear suits to work everyday and I am starting to wonder if I need more than 6 suits. I wonder if getting beater suits from like Express would be a good option to give the more expensive suits a good rest.

I know that some double monks like the Allen Edmonds Neumora and Mora have elastic straps. I thought some higher end brands used it too.

I have a pair of Neumoras and they 100% do not have any elastic in them.

Hello there everyone,

 

I'm looking to purchase a custom suit in Manhattan and I hear that Suitsupply is the way to go. I did a quick search on this website and found some random things about it, but I was wondering what some of you thought. For the price (1-1500) is this a good place to get a custom suit?

 

I'm looking to make this a go-to suit, so charcoal is probably my best bet, correct? 

 

Thanks for your time!

I have no comment pro or against SuitSupply MTM but you might also want to read about Kent Wang's MTM program as it is popular here. I think a local tailor could make you a nice MTM suit with a lot of customization (more than Suit Supply I am sure) for about $1500 so consider that as well

Is light weight flannel an oxymoron?

 

I want to get some woolen pants that are not worsted and which have some texture (because it looks better to me and also more casual-I love cords and oxford cloth for the same reasons).  I have it in my mind that I really want flannels but I sit in an office all day in temperate San Francisco. Honestly I have some tweed pants on the lighter side for tweed and they wear pretty warm when temps are in the 60's

My.Suit or Suitsupply is what I'm hearing. Which one would you guys suggest for a custom suit in Manhattan?

Love RLBL Black Label's slim cut, sharp shoulders, and not overly skinny lapels. Can you recommend anything comparable, preferably at lower price point? J Crew Ludlow comes close, but I fear the lapels won't work with average ties (3.5 inches or so).

My first suit was RLBL and if you can work it then I would suggest Zegna Milano or Zegna Torino (tad bit slimmer than Milano and RLBL). But I see that you are looking for something cheaper so I guess I am not really helping. But just to let you know.

My quick question;

 

Should I wear light colors on overcast/cloudy days? For some reason it doesn't feel right.

post #23173 of 29352

Hey everyone! I'd like a nice pair of jeans that I could wear with a pair of OSB Navy Trail Oxfords with Vibram soles.  Any suggestions?

 

Edit:  Sorry, I think I posted this in the wrong place shog[1].gif

Any recommendations as to where to purchase good dress belts for skinny men? As in, I'd get Brooks Brothers, EGs or one of the trad staples, but with a 27" waistline, most of the belts I've come across won't fit.

Thanks, Rudals. To be honest I can't stomach either at retail but I'll be scanning for both on eBay and B&S
