    That's a really vague question.

    Dont be dumb, just wondering if there are any brands that are more popular based on fit, cost, etc.

    Ya know, I just don't see this thread ending well but I will go with the benefit of the doubt here.

    If you search the forum you will find a wide variety of suit styles and brands are well regarded- from Saville Row Bespoke, to Italian houses such as Kiton, Isaia and Belvest.

    If you narrow down the question, you will find much more helpful replies.

    What suits do you tend to favour?

    Having phrased it that way I'm sure you'll get better answers.

    For me, I've wandered a bit (RTW and bespoke, HK and USA and London) and think I've settled on a source or two for my suits. See the threads I've started recently. "HK Tailors: A-Man Hing Cheong and WW Chan" and also "Chan DB". If anything particularly interests you in there, try the search function and you'll find much more that has accumulated in these parts over the years.

    Welcome.

    Those are indulgent and kind responses to an asshat.

    Hey, why did Horace get banned, anyway?
    Alan's got a point. You guys are being really inflammatory as of late to the new people here for no reason. "Don't be dumb," on his part was a little jerkish too, though.

    Well there are a couple fairly new members that have been making some rather prickish posts lately. Time and the "goodness" of the board usually sorts things out. The Vaclav/Shooman paranoia is outlandish though.

    That sounds like something Vaclav or Shooman would say to throw us off their trail. I'm keeping an eye on you! [​IMG]

    Buddy. Do yourself a favor. If you want a useful and informative answer from members, state your question in that manner OK? We are not mind readers ..

    Another alternative would be to answer the initial question with a like degree for precision.

    Therefor, my response is wool. I generally wear wool suits. Though I do make exceptions based on time of year and circumstances. [​IMG]
