    I've been by a few times and thought they offered a pretty good value for the money. They have a 38L which fits me well off the rack. Just wish they made a 3-button model with the soft Roma shoulder.

    Sure, I will post them later tonight.


    It ends right where my butt ends and with my hands at my side I can grasp the bottom of it, so I think it is pretty close.

    I do not think it is long to warrant stressing about. I would say maybe a quarter inch at the most. I would have the back cleaned up a bit by a competent tailor and slightly lenghten the one arm and you are good to go.

    Do you mind sharing price range?

    Hookem - SuitSupply's customer service is pretty easy to work with. I have a suit from there and they were very quick to hook me up with all the measurements I wanted before I bought. I'm really impressed with the fits right out of the box, and the detailing. Now if only there was enough fabric in the pants for a cuff....

    Just took a look at the site. Not gonna lie, I actually like the style, cut, and fit of the pictures, which is rare. However, I can't get passed the name... and I probably don't want to know where it's made either. Why would they pre-cut functioning buttonholes :brick:.

    I like the Washington stylistcally:

    After perusing the site, if the suits/jackets come out anything like what is described or pictured, I'd point all the one thread poppers who come to SF asking "I need a suit for under xxx, what should I buy?" in this direction.

    Yeah, I've wondered about the bright bulb that came up with that idea as well. I don't get how they think it's a good idea?

    Because it sells.

    Only a couple of days a go a friend of mine check out my $200 :)fu:) suit and saw my functional cuff button holes. She commented on how another friend of her told her that functional button holes are marks of a quality (re: expensive) suit. I was all giggly inside. She wasn't the only friend of mine who thinks functional cuffs are only on expensive suits too. Mind you it was a decent suit for the price though. Half canvassed, Angelico fabric, bemberg lining and buffalo horn buttons.
