    Ok, now, better question. Bespoke or Brooks Brothers golden fleece? BB is convenient because I live by one buttt... What's the better way to go?

    Depends on the quality of the bespoke tailor. Who were you thinking of going with?

    Golden Fleece is very nice; I own one suit of this line and can vouch for its quality.

    Midnight blue velvet jacket with black suit pants and vest. What are your thoughts?

    Not too sure. I'm new to suits. I just went on the Bespoke website and saw the suit packages. Right now some deals on B&S are looking great. Perhaps I should just measure myself and start there as I don't know much yet.

    Don't do bespoke. Hang out around here, get a feel for your taste/style. Get measurements done professionally at the best tailor's you can find. Start with RTW. If you find obvious flaws/can't get the desired fit you've seen and liked elsewhere then experiment with MTM. Once you've got some MTM experience and know what you like/need/want, etc THEN look into bespoke.

    Jumping into bespoke with no thought or experience will generally not produce great results. Enjoy the resources at your disposal.

    EDIT: "Bespoke website" also sounds very dubious. Make sure you know what the term actually involves/means before you start investigating. There are many tailors, online and otherwise, that will sell you bespoke garments when in reality you are getting nothing like bespoke.

    what is this "bespoke website" you are talking about?
    do you even wear a suit regularly?

    Going to issue a blanket no to the vest as I cannot imagine a vest material that would compliment velvet nicely. Where/why are you wearing this? If you plan on wearing a bow tie with that you should wear tuxedo pants. You can tell if they are tuxedo pants by the grosgrain or satin strip running the length of your leg.

    Can anyone comment on the quality of Sanders shoes in general and in comparison to C&J?
