Ordered a Samuelsohn from The Hound Today

So I finally pulled the trigger on the navy blue suit that I have been after. Went into The Hound in San Francisco and got a MTO Samuelsohn. It turned out to to be a lot of fun. Everybody in the store was extremely helpful and Walt, who I mainly worked with, was great. He answered all of my (probably dumb) questions and explained everything quite clearly. He also let me know when something I was describing wasn't going to look very good but definitely tried to help me figure out exactly what I wanted and made it happen. It was really a great experience.

Looking forward to seeing how the suit turns out in several weeks and plan to post pictures when I get it back. However, based on my first impressions I hope to purchase a lot of suits from The Hound in the future. It's always fun to deal with the owners of a small shop rather than a large store like NM or BB. They seem a little more invested in how the suit comes out.

Oh and I picked up some Bills Khackis while I was there. Great looking pants also.

Anyways, thanks for all the help leading up to my purchase. And if anybody out there is in need of a suit in the Bay Area I highly recommend that they check out The Hound.

Actually, I forgot. Didn't pay much attention to the names. Took the shoulders and top half of one model and combined it with the bottom half of another model. I honestly have no idea which models though. I'll find out when I pick it up though.

Well, I believe the actual suit was $1170 and then I ordered an extra pair of trousers to bring it up to around $1500. Feel like I got a great deal. They definitely appeared to have an enormous selection of fabrics, however, I didn't look at that many. Walt pulled out some Navy Blues that he thought were most appropriate for what I was after and we went from there. Pretty sure that they had a large selection to get you pretty much whatever you wanted.
