Someone representing them has started a thread about clothing, etc... here. I don't believe that site allows them to specifically promote themselves so they're doing it in a roundabout way by offering help to those who don't know much about suits/shirts.

When I inquired about shirting/suiting they indicated that they do not offer Thomas Mason (shirts) or Holland Sherry/Scabal/Loro Piana (suits). They offered shirting in Cistes ($275) and suiting fabric is Guabello ($315 for pants). I know nothing of these fabric mills. Perhaps someone here can shed some light on them. I'm sure they offer fabric from other mills but I did not inquire further.

I'm actually going for a fitting Nov 2nd.

According to the RFDer's on there, they had positive reviews. From my PM's and emails, they are prompt and professional, let's hope the shirts are the same

The person that is on RFD that started the thread is me, pennyarcade (going by the same name).

I would like to point out one thing: those materials we quoted you on are our highest quality fabrics. Our true desired position in the market isn't actually at that price point: far from it in fact. We want our clients to value our service as much as our products. Our prices for shirts start as low as $65 and pants start at $125: most of our business are from those price points. On the service side, we cater to clients one on one and provide a level of service that you will not find at that price point.

We cater to people that want good value or are new to MTM, hence my thread at RFD, helping people understand the benefits of MTM. I won't deny that the thread has brought interest to our company, but the real reason that I started the thread is that I genuinely do want to help people look their best and not lose that important sale or interview because their first impression (ie, image) was poor.

I tried IM Label once recently.
I opted for a "middle of their range" cloth for a standard suit. Quite disappointed with the result -- I ended up paying approx $750 and the quality is mediocre at best. I also took a look at their shirts, which did not seem high end at all (quality of stitching, fit, etc), and so did not go for it.
I have had quite a few suits in the past, and this one looks like something bought off the rack for $400 or so. For the money, you are much better off with tailoring an off the rack suit brand that fits you well -- for me that would be Boss or Strellson.
My bespoke suits stand head and shoulders over the IM Label product.

Wont be going there again.

I bought 3 shirts. They have arrived and I'm going next week to see how they fit and if further alterations are required. Fingers crossed that the shirts are worth the money. I don't expect first class quality for $70 shirts but if they fit well and are a bit better than OTR shirts at similar price poin then I'm happy.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
