    Love hate relationship with this forum : )
    Hugo Boss out and two new RLBL purchased.
    Now I am really miserable as I have fallen in love with this material..

    http://store.zegna.com/us/ermenegildo-zegna/men/suit_cod49133260xp.html

    So close to buying this suit except its a three button. I am contemplating having them make it in a two button.

    You guys have ruined me.

    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.
