Also found this promotional video. It seems to show the Platonic ideal of what MTM should be like, but isn't actually found in nature:

hey guys, does anyone know knitwear brands with a contemporary/modern style? There's probably a better adjective, but I'm thinking Yashiki, for example. Love Yashiki's style, but they're hard to find and haven't found something similar

why bother, I assume *Armani isn't going to be cheap, if its aesthetic please you and is unique then go for it, else don't bother

Pricing varies, but about $4k USD for a full canvass suit in a starter fabric. I went in-store today to take a look, and some of the tailoring is nice, but nothing to write home about. Tonnes of swatches, but the colours were pretty muted.

I spoke to a sales rep, and they're hosting Armani's 'Master Tailor' at the four seasons for a MTM event. I've decided it's not for me.

I will be doing another MTM commission this season, and I've narrowed it down to Canali or RLPL. Will let you all know how it goes.

I wish to see more often such a stunning silhouette, instead of those ridiculously skinny trousers.

For flared I can go wide for straight I don’t think I can go anywhere beyond 8.25-8.5in on size 30, these would be like 9.75 in my size?

I think it looks pretty good just definitely not for me, my father is shorter than I’m but that’s how he wear his trouser too, I think we definitely get used to whatever recent trend on our respective era
