    uncorrect.

    morning suit wont have plack pants; instead will have gray stripe prolly. its day dress, thus black trou are too formal. true cutaway tails is a form of eveningwear and will have black trou.
    cant tell on phone which this was, but based on satin lapel, i would guess tux.

    On April 26th SUITED was nice enough to give me free dress shirt. One that will soon be a regular in my rotation of work sh

    irts. Now I am going to past the kind gesture forward. First one to claim gets the shirt mailed to them free of charge. However, intl will be charged exact shipping cost.

    Those Burberry's look fake..... Those pinstripe jackets are orphans... prob would have passed on the majority of the other stuff also even if for you to wear but def if your looking to trade/sell.

    I would have passed on everything there, but making lots of questionable purchases when you're starting out is kind of a rite of passage so don't sweat it. (But do lurk a little more before your next spree.)

    ^^i would have picked up the Corneliani tie. I've got several and they make the best knot/dimple out of all my ties.

    I know that a lot of these stuff will be hard to trade/sell but as ChetB mentionned I'm only at the beginning ;)
    Other big problem here is that most of the high-end stuff are not sold in my region, so definitely hard to find...

    Thanks for the comments!

    I'd have picked up the samuelsohn, but only because its in my size and the colors look decent for spring.

    hey all...what are your thoughts on the non-iron, slim fit BB shirts (for self, not for resale)?


    i bought 3 today b/c i need new shirts at work and they fit quite well. im concerned b/c i had bought some at Nordstrom Rack about a year ago and the elbows blew out very quickly.



    ALSO


    passed on a MINT All Saints suit - made in italy. basically brand new, but pricey. i've seen it pop up a few times on here but really know very little. anyone care to chime in on this as well?

    Probably Hickey Freeman made. Most likely a pass.

    Discount brag. Stopped by the APC overstock sale in Brooklyn today and snagged these. Surprised to find anything in my size as all the other footwear there was a size 12-13. Really great house shoes.
