Store is not yet finished, but it'll be nice once complete. They were still unpacking, merchandising, etc.
FWIW, I think their stuff is really, really good. I worked at Herringbone for over four years, and MJ Bale's stuff reminds me of the stuff I owned and sold when I first started at Herringbone. There's a softness to the construction that makes it a pleasure to wear. Also, 40R off the rack requires zero alterations for me. Not a hint of collar gap, no need for collar to be lowered, nothing. I'm sure if I spent time nitpicking, I'd find fault, but for the price, I'm planning on getting a few things. Shame I already own many suits and have occasion to wear none. Many of mine are also BNWT - anyone interested in size 42R Herringbone Navy suiting?
Awesome to hear. I just got an MJ Bale suit myself. My tailor said it is a much better suit than one he has been working on from Zara, which is owned by another student.
You are so lucky about 40R being a perfect fit.
A 36R fits me pretty well. The sleeves were 1.5cm too long - I like to see shirt cuff ($40). The pants have to be taken up ($15). An optional one which I have opted for is to get some of the fabric taken out of the back of the suit ($40). Does anyone know what I am talking about? I am probably being picky regarding the back - the adjustments have zero effect on the front of the suit. So all up it is $100 of alterations, not ideal, but when the waist, hips, length, chest and shoulders are smack on, it is quite good.
How do you think the current MJ Bale suits compare to the current Herringbone suits (with price in consideration)? Also, are you buying sports jackets or suit jackets?
