    thanks for the advice everyone. uniqlo is going to be hard to pass by mom (she's paying for the suit, flame away) because I can't try it on. but there is a bb store not too far from me. but if I can't fit into the boys stuff it is going to be a waste because the price limit is going to be $500 or so, so regular bb sizes would be too much. but there are some h&ms not too far, could also check those out.

    actually, scott should just sell me his new suit.

    PSA: Uniqlo stops taking phone orders on 6/1 in anticipation of the opening of their new brick & mortar stores.
    How do 2 more NYC locations have anything at all to do with phone orders outside of the city?

    mikey are you still in MD or are you back in CT? If you're in MD there are plenty of H&Ms around. If you're in CT, there's no excuse not to ride the train into the city and hit up uniqlo unless you need this shit like tomorrow or something. Still. Shouldn't be too hard to pull off unless you're in some remote region of CT

    I'm back in ct for the summer. and unfortunately I live in the super rural north east region of ct. it is like a 90 minute drive to new haven and then I have to train from there. I could maybe convince her to go to ny, but it would take some sweet talking haha. every time I mention anything she goes "well I think we should look at men's warehouse." ...

    fuck. sorry dude. lol good luck, try to find a zara or h&m is probably your best bet, BB boys seems real stupid to me and probably will not be cheap

    I got a s/s09 rmainline raf suit in black with some crazy effect, sharkskin is it called? for $200something on yoox marked down quite a bit. Over the years I've found 3-4 items there when I randomly check

    you should look at TaT (probably was mentioned, but whatever). seems like you'll have a hard time getting the right fit with most brands. Jason does great work. A basic charcoal wool probably is right at the $500 limit.

    shit, that cheap for a mtm suit? I always assumed they were a lot more. I'm pretty confident I'm done growing (taller than mom, not far off dad, from a notoriously short family on both sides), so a mtm suit would be awesome.

    i think the price ticked up just a bit, but iirc, my basic charcoal one was $430.

    mikey, try to find suit jackets that are cut small length wise. I think a 25" inch length would be good for you. Then spend some money on tailoring, get the sleeve shortened and maybe waist suppression. Should cost you about $50 for the job.

    I want to downsize the shit out of my wardrobe but I keep procrastinating. I might have gotten this trait from my grandma, but there is a tiny bit of a hoarder in me. I just can't let go of stuff even though it just sits there in my closet/bedroom taking up space.

    Want to have the leanest wardrobe possible.
