    I am 172 cm, and that would be on the short side of what I can wear.

    Well he's going to Seoul with a wad of cash in his pocket. I trust clags to steer him in the right direction for one item.

    Oh yeah, Clags made me shorter by 3 cm. Forgot to ask Stitchie to measure me.
    Aight Aight Sugarbutch. I just wanted to look at ties but ever since losing out on the NWMA suit, I've been bitter.
    I totally agree with you that I should try on and buy. Not buy then try on. I am sticking with that so don't you worry.
    But then again, all the ones that I can try on nowadays are freaking "trendy." Well, except the RLPL suit that we saw today. That was...really nice.

    I think I spent about $4k in just 2 weeks but I came back with nothing tangible. But I had fun.

    why! why! why would they sell something like this!!!
    I am totally staying away from online purchases since I don't know which measurements to look for.
    Shoot, I don't even know my own height.

    Noodles can we get a wardrobe inventory?

    What exactly do you own? Wondering what gaps you need to fill.

    -Suits
    -SC
    -Pants
    -Shirts


    I think ties are mostly covered

    Though you aren't getting it, Rudals, that's an excellent selection as far as gray suits go. So, you're heading in the right direction for sure. I also agree with Butchy about not being ready to bespeak anything, but I think that an SS mtm experience would be an excellent one. Butchy, how do you feel on that count?

    First off, I don't have much and whatever I had was crap and got rid of them. I think one positive thing is that...I don't have much in my closet and so I have room for growth. Here's my current inventory

    Suits: (5)
    Pictures show only jackets but I have matching pants...hence suits.

    SC: (0)
    I only wear suits

    Pants: (0)
    I only wear suits

    Shirts: (10)

    Ties (?)
