    La Spalla is pretty nice, but I've yet to aee one where the shoulder shirring isn't a complete disaster

    NAh nah. Y'all got me wrong. I want to fill in the gaps with Suit Supply suits but for a $1k, I'd rather save up more and get better suits. I believe Lazio models fit me well and their price range is good. But La Spalla doesnt seem to make sense.

    Heres that Lazio I tried on...

    So Noodles wants something less expensive than Formosa to supplement his rotation but wants it to fit, look good, etc. for less than half the cost of Formosa...

    I like that you put the coffee down, put the jacket on, then picked the coffee back up

    Try 40L Napoli. Similar measurement as your Formosa, the lapels are wider and chest fuller than the Lazio.

    I also have reservations shelling out 1k for a suit supply suit. You can make two Sartoria Vanni Korea MTM suits for 1k.

    Ytm, kulata.
    No knock on Suit Supply but I would not want to spend $1,000 on them, especially if the intention is to get Formosa suits a break here and there. I think $500 is a good price. Thanks for suggesting Napoli. I shall try them on this weekend.

    Fine. No undershirt and no thick polo shirt this weekend. I will go into suit supply with just a t-shirt

    ^ Cue people telling Noodles that if he wants to see how a suit fits, he should actually wear what he would wear underneath in real life (i.e. dress shirt and tie). Trying stuff on 101...

    Sartoria Vanni is that cheap? Shit man, I'd've been all over that. That's nuts.
