• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

I read the previous thread about Greenfield on Gilt, and how they were misrepresenting MSRP, etc. I don't particularly care about that and have just two questions re: their tux:

1. How does the fit compare to my RLBL suits? If I'm a 40R in RLBL, should I do 40R or 38R in MG, and will the fit be at all comparable?

2. Regardless of the fake MSRP, is that tux on there worth $1,048, and would you pay that for it if it independent of the brand/seller?

sort of answers question 1, from the previous Greenfeld thread:

I had my tailor let out the waist and seat a tad and they are still snug at the hips (not enough for me to be uncomfortable at all though), but then again I'm used to true slim fits being a frequenter of the SW&D side. I like the material and I feel that they are a good pair of quality well made pants. Nice, deep front and lined pockets, etc. They certainly aren't the holy grail of pants, but they are what I would expect a pair of pants to be at the price they were listed for during the sale. I'm thinking that the mainline Greenfield pants are in a whole different bracket, but having no personal experience I can't really speak to that with any facts.



Question 2, only you can answer it. To some people, 1K purchase requires a lot of thought, to others, not so much. If this is going to be your one tux and you have 1K+ to spend, I would much rather buy something in person, most likely made to order.
