    I've never owned a suit before, but I'd like to add one or two to my wardrobe. My problem is going about figuring out the fitting. Should I get a measurement from a tailor, then get an off the rack suit as close to that as possible then have the tailor better fit it to me? Or should I go the...

    Suit Separates or High Drop For a Triangle (Y-Shaped) Professional?

    First post; I'm a noob looking to upgrade from cheap-o suits. My problem is: I'm a 42" chest and 32" waist. Where can I find quality suit separates? Or suits with a high drop? All the suits I've tried have a 6" or 8" drop, which just won't work. I'm aiming for $500 - $800 for a good value on...

    Puffy Shirt in the Lower Back

    I'm looking for advice on what I can ask the tailor to do, to get rid of this puffiness in the lower back area of my tailored shirts. I've read that you should have roughly 1-3 inches of pinched fabric to allow for a comfortable fit. I hate nothing more than having a restricted feeling, or a...
