    Now that's what I was talking about! Great tie, Rudals!

    As @jrd617 would said and I quote: "I would sex". (jrd617, StyleForum. 2013)

    I am not saying that online shopping is the quickest or even necessarily the best option, but it is an option. I think it worked for me pretty well.

    Agreed, didn't mean to downplay your option. You've certainly shown the success of online shopping in the WAYWRN thread! Online shopping is an excellent option if you don't have time, don't live near many stores, or know your exact measurements and what looks good on you. It's just a little risky/expensive if you order the wrong stuff, especially with stores that don't have free returns.

    Anyway, I had a lot of fun trying on many suits, and I learned a lot as well. It wouldn't hurt Rudals to spend at least an afternoon trying on loads of different suits.

    I agree with this. I think I need to get out and try different places in person. Online is not the way to go for me at this point of my SF life.

    Rud, not a fan of that belt. Too much hardware for me. But the real point is that I likely wouldn't have noticed it had your tie been the proper length.

    You're too good! I thought I'd be able to get away with it, sir! You have a good set of eyes. Fixed.

    thanks for the compliments. it definitely requires a very different kind of effort, but i found the main benefit was a much broader group of options.


    thats cool, but you need to try other B&M stores besides NM. go to georgetown or tysons corner and hop into as many boutiques as you can and try stuff on.

    Thank you, kind sir. The tie length has been fixed per MonkeyFace's feedback. I actually thought I could get away with it.
    Betel, you know what's coming tomorrow?

    Let's settle this issue with me being unable to find a suit, especially with the funds that I have* after returning $4k worth of stuff to NM (Thank You). I shall go to SS in Gtown and try on different cuts and take decent pictures...maybe I'll take a living and breathing tripod along with me...[email protected], I have no guy friends who'd do that and I can't talk to girls anymore. But this Saturday, I'll be at SS and will bring pictures. Let's talk then. Until then, I need to get this out of my system.
