    He's about my size. I'll steal it from him when I go on Friday. I've had two basted fittings and I think this'll be a forward fitting (I know it will be for the pants--don't know about the jacket). Mrs. C gave me the ok to commission another jacket, so I'll be looking into that as well. I'm thinking.....

    Navy. Obviously.

    On a different note, but one certainly related to this thread, I've helped out two people, in real life (who knew real life even had people?), with their wedding outfits. Both ordered several items from various affiliate vendors in the process. So that's kind of cool.

    I think if I had pushed them I could have had it in about a month, but there was no rush.

    This BNTailor place, how much do their bespoke suits cost?
    I told my fiance that I am going to FIELDS for a bespoke suit but then she was like they have really good places in Korea.
    There's no way she would know about this place.
    Clags, I'am coming in on 3/26th and leaving on 3/31st. Let me know if you want to grab a drink. [​IMG]

    The two best places I know of cost as much as Field. And if she thinks a good suit could be had in a week........

    The gray/silver grenadine you have on in that pic wouldn't be a bad choice. Otherwise, I'd suggest a Prince of Wales check. Most of the SF favorites sell one. A few: - Kent Wang - Henry Carter - Vanda Hober's is currently out of stock. Conrad Wu also has a nice black/white POW, but it's wool, not silk.

    @Evolve
    Thanks. Seems like a lot of people have recommended light grey PoW ties.
    Conrad Wu has 3 different shades of PoW ties! [​IMG]
