my brother got one, the jackets are patialy fused the fabric is ok, if you are looking for a fashion forward suit that will get complements from 95% of humanity go for it, but as far as it being a truly good suit, id say no and you wont find much love for them here on SF
I walked around their shop near Union Square (I think), and I was not overly impressed with the suits and jackets they had on display, the tailoring was off but a lot. When I say that I mean the flap pockets on the jackets were not even close to even on the sides of the jacket. If someone had a right arm about 3 inches longer than their left if would have been a balanced look; my thought was, "if this is their display model or the best work they want to show off.....I am not even going to consider it". I did like the pattern on some of their fabrics though, there were a few cool ones if you wanted to do a "bold" suit.
I went into the White Plains store. All the fabrics were Super 150s and up, so I didn't see the point in looking into them further.
Not sure what "patialy fused" means.
sorry partialy fused (1/2 canvassed) is what i meant. it refers to the construction of the jacket, a better jacket will be fully canvassed, that is to say it has an inner canvass that holds the shape of the jacket which is sewn in, a fused jacket is glued on the inside, which can over time show bubbling and is generaly of lesser quality and wont last as long
This site is awesome! Though probably not the most trusted, I suggest just buying each garment individually.
Which patterns are you referring to? I tend to be traditional, but would consider something different and "bold".
Thanks. As I said, it would be a big step up for me, so I don't need the best for $10,000.
Why is that? Is 150s considered poor quality?
