    Like Stitch was hinting at there is not much great B&M shopping in Bmore. There's a nice little shop called Samuel Parker clothiers that's just north of downtown that sells some really nice stuff - go ahead and google them to see what they have and where they're located. I think their annual sale is over so don't expect any great deals, but the owner Ken is a great dude and is a nice guy to talk to if you have time to BS and talk about clothes.

    +10. Chocsosa, I wonder what your secrets are to getting such a good fit?

    Rudals: I especially like the combo with the silver tie.

    Dude, you look S#ARP!
    As far as Baltimore goes...my apologies to anyone who live in Baltimore...but that place just sucks. Since youre gonna be there anyways, if u like pizza theres a good place called Iggies, if u like Italian theres sotto sopra, and if u like sushi there is rah on habour east. As far as shopping goes I'd just come down south to Chevy Chase or Gtown or even Tysons in No.VA. Nothing good in Baltimore.

    Rudals, I think you have put up some good looks from a couple days ago to now. The trick is to find something you like that works for you. I am a simple pattern guy for instance and I know for some on here, that is not for them. However you have to go in knowing that you like what you like and as far as you have the basics down people will either roll with your choices or they wont. Those that wont, however, will respect that look as being uniquely you and leave at that.. the most important thing is you have some quality pieces there and with time you will find what your steeze is..hope that helps..
    Thanks Crimson! I know what Brands I can fit into in terms of my size and what brands I cant even think of.. and i have an awesome pair of Tailors that I have worked with extensively over the last three years here in Fresno..I lucked out.. and lastly just really being on this forum. I know some peeps think its circle jerking but for real, I really learned a lot from guys on here..if I did not, I would not be here or post here..I am still learning too.. I want to start dabbling with strong patterns (which is not my thing) and have options there..I am learning that from this forum as well..
    Thanks Foxx! My motto is simple is hard to Fuck up! lol..
    Oba T, your chief execellency! lol.. Looking good bruv!
    Yea thats where I used to shop too.. always great ties available.. suits and shoe selections were horrid..typically I would drive out to Tyson's corner for that..I'll still try to check 'em out this weekend though..maybe you wanna tag along if you are free?

    I have heard of his shop. I'll try to stop by for a visit. I get in Thurs afternoon staying in Bmore, but my meetings are in DC all Friday long and I fly out Sat night..so I'll google 'em and try Sat afternoon, maybe..you been there before bete?

    haha.. you guys would love that! LMAO!! Lets make it happen stitchy!

    I am fully aware that I'm pissing into the wind, but the following folks failed to spoiler pictures in their quotes over the last 24 hours. Some of them included the picture unspoilered for good reason (e.g. a series of constructive criticisms or it was a small image and spoilering it would ruin the snark of the proceeding comment), but a lot of them were of the "high five" variety. "Awesome man, we'll done." I have no problem with such comments, but they don't need the unspoilered image to go along with them.

    So...uh.....yeah. I'll be doing this occasionally. Sorry to all for being a jerk about something so insignificant. [​IMG]

    (Also, to be clear, unspoilered images in quotations can be warranted and were in a few of those instances. I'm just not making any distinctions to avoid favoritism)

    Yikes! My bad. Hope I didnt offend u lol. Yes, Iggies is on Calvert. I guess my extra hatred of Bmore may just have to do with my ex who went to Peabody. She turned my world upside down...but that's for a different forum. Dont want Clag coming down on me too. And by the way, I am probably the only dummy in this forum who has paid full retail on all his clothing...at Tysons II. I hate me...a fool.

    Yup, I've been there several times, although I moved from Baltimore a while ago, so I haven't been there in about 2 years or so. I got my first pair of Alden shell LWB from that place, and they also sell some C&J for RL shoes. I never bought any suits or SCs there, but they have a nice selection of ties and squares and other accessories, like Drake's for instance. But be prepared to pay full price for pretty much everything there.

    Just another day in a slightly-out-of-focus charcoal suit. Really enjoyed a lot of the pics lately guys; lots to study and consider. :nodding:

    You have me by about 4", but I would love to see your lists of brands that work. I have slowly figured what brands work, but it has been an expensive process.

    Oh yeah...you rag on Santa Barbara and you live in Fresno! C'mon man!

    Not what I wore today--nowhere near tweed weather even if I am mostly just carrying around my jacket--but I just got this from the tailor and I'm finally perfectly happy with the pattern. Buttoning point high but not too high (by my standards). Not too much waist suppression. I barely gave them enough fabric to work with, but overall, I'm damned pleased.
