Guys, one of my friend's brother in law is getting custom made suits for all of the men in his wedding. He is purchasing them from a place called Alabaster & Chess in union square, NYC I believe. My friend asked me if i'd wanna buy one when they go because they are going to give him a group rate since he is buying a bunch. He said he thinks it will be around $300. I recently just bout a Z Zegna suit, but figured that around $300 isnt a bad price for a M2M suit and should take advantage of the group buy. Anyone ever deal with these guys or know anything about them? Here is the website http://www.alabasterchess.com/

Thanks!

It looks like that's only $50 off what I assume is a somewhat dodgy product.

Why would they offer a group discount? Groups just mean they have to do more work in a shorter period of time, since they are m2m. Its not like they are buying OTR.

Where are the finely hand carved chessmen and board with intricate inlay? Misleading title....

"We offer this cashmere silk blended suit at a $$ loss to help students and young professionals enter the custom market."

Red flag!!

Appeal to sympathy.
