Being 21 and having a very limited budget really sucks when you have the sartorial flu, trust me, especially being a member here, you guys have me jealous with all the expensive clothes you buy... Having said this, i recently found myself needing a black suit for a party i am attending, now i do not usually wear black, i am quite fond of the navy and grey variety, but the invitation was clear.. black suits only for men, and black dresses for the ladies. This put me in a predicament, i do want to have a suit that fits me well, but i do not want to spend much money on it, as i will only probably wear this once. You guessed it, i turned to online tailoring. I knew everyone was going to be wearing black suits at this party and it being a 21st it would be quite a young crowd, so i wanted 2 things from the suit, i wanted it to be different from the sea of black suits, and i wanted it to fit well. things that will make it look different *wide peak lapels in a sea of notch lapels *nipped waist *hacking pockets (sethi's idea not mine) *its a 3 piece suit *single vent *gold paisley lining *higher cut arm holes Sethi, my contact from the site was very helpful, he even gave me a call on several occasions. I also requested it to be here by sept 11. He assured me that it could be done, and i asked for photos on the progress of the suit. Here are those photos, it is not finished yet, but its pretty close. What do you guys think? heres the vest: and here's a shirt i got made as well: i'm so far happy with everything. its been good communication, excellent service, they speak perfect english. they're open to suggestions, this suit is obviously a design we had to talk about, it was not in their list of styles. ill send more pics when it arrives here to see if it fits.
