At that price point, why not go bespoke?

It's a 3-roll-2. Which is a style. I guess you could have them make that one as a 2 button, but why?

For retail, that's not a very good deal for a suit.

Where can I get that material for a better price?

Should I consider the 3-2 roll over paying more for two button? Style wise I dont wear a tie and my suits need to be more fashion forward. Ideally the style of Hugo Boss but the quality of Zegna, RLBL.

Nice suit with a nice shirt is my work wear.

Thanks

Why don't you just stick with RLBL? Are they too fashion forward for you? They do a MTO program where you can get the RLBL cut in all sorts of fabrics for about $1000 cheaper than that Zenga suit your'e looking at.

I love the two suits I got from them. I will ask if they have a fabric like that. Thanks

Or look into WW Chan - I believe they travel to DC (I would stay clear from Michael Andrews).

If he likes RLBL, I think WW Chan would be a bad call. The RLBL cut is very specific for a slim fit, which I love btw, but is not something Chan normally cuts.

I am not too familiar with the RLBL cut and I hear what you are saying about pushing your tailor out of their comfort zone, but Chan can be pretty accomodating. I may be biased here, but think you would get a superior fit with them, which I would take any day over a RTW item.
