    Being that this is the quick questions thread the short answer is, "no". You should do some searches on here to find information about suits. You are really limiting yourself when you say, "British". what do you mean? Style-wise, or made in England? Your options for decent suits for the price tag increase dramatically when you loosen up on some things.

    No. Not unless its from a sale. Paul Stuart or RLBL on sale is possible at that price. But are those considered up there like C&J in boots/shoes but in suits...

    Thanks again!

    Had been reading a little bit about suits and by British I meant more "made in England" than anything else.

    As far as style is concerned, I am more on a path towards a two button single breasted European cut with Sidevents rather than american squarish suit with a center vent.

    Hope this clarifies some.

    Most American suits do not hae single vents anymore. If you want something made in England you are going to have to pay more than $1k, but like I said talk to TTO I think he gets some somewhat affordable stuff in London.

    They a based in the UK and are a 'grown up' brand from the makers of Jack Wills. They have a few shops in the UK and I guess they are moving into the US.
    Some of their stuff is really high quality - can you post a link to the coat?

    Link doesn't work for me, it just redirects to the Ted Baker homepage.

    What C&J last is comparable to Allen Edmonds 5? 348? I am a 13B on the 5.

    And what's a brother supposed to do about all of PLAL's offerings being E fittings if he normally wears a US B width, are there any other good options out there?

    Cheers!

    Not to be unhelpful, but when you googled "getting cigarette smoke out of wool clothing," and clicked on one of the thousands of links provided, was there something lacking in the advice provided?

    I mean, you did at least try searching for an answer that way before asking here, right?
