    But it's droopy and bad. Well, maybe not bad, but it's got nothing on the one that made its rounds from Shah to me to Pope to whoever now has it. The stiffer fabric + throne collar + shoulders were way more interesting than the new one which looks like it's made out of jersey or something.

    There is wool, linen and cotton in that jacket.
    The other lapel less blazer is a wool-polyurethane blend.

    I preordered the suit already. It is 95% wool and 5% polyurethane. Not my favorite blend, but it'll have to do for now. the finished one looks different from the sample up on archivesf

    Implying nahneun wasn't privy to the collection months ago. [​IMG]

    Considering how good this season is looking for Daisuke archive's buy is a little disappointing.

    It's a different jacket; two lapel less designs in the collection.

    Y'all are just ungrateful. A droopy lapelless jacket is always better than no lapelless jacket

    Also, RFT: Does anyone else have "can't unsee" moments with their clothing? Like I just noticed yesterday that, on one of my jackets, the right shoulder's padding wasn't sewn quite as evenly as the left's. The difference was barely visible but bothered me way more than it should have.



    I'm guessing you've already checked Yoox? That's def a Yoox sweet spot

    Much better than Zara or Topman, no idea how they compare to jcrew.

    Their MTM line is pretty great for the price.

    I got a suit from them right around when they first came to America a couple of years ago. Really solid, reasonably well made suit with fabric nicer than J. Crew for less than the cost of J. Crew. If I remember correctly, their whole deal was buying overstock fabric from Italian mills and making their suits in China to save a buck. Still pretty nice, lots of details that you'd find in higher end stuff. For a typical person in SW&D, it's definitely more than enough for an interview/funeral/wedding suit or whatever. If you're actually going to a store, their salespeople are reasonably knowledgable (NYC) and the in-house tailor does pretty good work, which is always a plus.

    I had a Zara suit a bit before that, it cost about half of the Suit Supply suit post-alterations and was pretty poor all around. If you're looking for a pure beater suit, just buy separates from Uniqlo, if you want something that at least somewhat compares to high end stuff, spring for the Suit Supply.

    The cut of the thighs on the trousers is really slim. I couldn't find a cut that worked for me. I really thought he was going to crash when he hit the grass.
