    yeah, 1000 dollar coats ...wtf. might as well go for veilance or SI shadow.
    they should have stuck with the 4,5,6 hundred dollar price range.

    +1,000,000 People just notice whether you're wearing a suit / dressy-ish shoes. Most professionals wouldn't even know what details (lapel width, dress shoe type, etc) are "correct" anyway. The stuff that MC goes crazy over as being not-business appropriate, like narrow lapels and ties, very slim/tapered pants, shorter jacket lengths, are absolutely completely fine in the real world. I guarantee 999/1000 people are not going to think a suit or sportcoat is not business appropriate, or even slightly less business appropriate, because the lapels are 2.25 instead of 3.25, or the leg opening on your pants is 6.75 instead of 8.25.

    Disagree. If you walk in to an interview wearing a slimane era dior cut suit (6.5" hems), people are going to notice. They aren't blind. And if they notice, that's not a good thing.

    With that being said, any uniqlo, j. crew, or any other mainstream "normal" suit is fine. At one time H&M made super skinny suits that aren't interview appropriate, but notwithit's blazer he just bought from there looked fine

    How else are people going to know they're the best? With american companies moving into the $200-300 range, self edge has to increase prices by 40% just to keep up. This stupid denim phase will soon end if it hasn't already

    you should told me bro i would have advised about sizing, the pants in xl fit us, jackets in xl fit me and the xl non-thermal shirt fits like a small large so i'd need xxl in that shit but I'm happy with my uniqlo mesh shirts for gym use

    my boy who is a 38/m wears large in the shit, of course you don't want fitted shorts or pants so I like the extra slouch

    where's that 1000$ coat though, just checked the website and most jackets hover around 600$ :paranoia:

    the stuff seems nice, I don't really get the disappointment
