    You never know what'll score at College Park. My bro purchased an Omega 3573.20 with b/p for $3700+taxes.

    I had no idea this particular Winner's was so good.

    That's an interesting find from a Winners store.

    I just wanted to give a shout-out to Jokb who helped clean up my pair of suede Vass. After his post about borrowing shoes for the Gentleman's Expo, I offered to lend him my pair to showcase suede options. He gladly helped restore my shoes, which as you can tell by the photo, were quite beat up.

    Thanks again!

    Those look great. Nice job Jokb! I gotta get a pair of Vass.

    Separate note but if anyone is interested in any suits in 42-44 give me a shout. Time to clean the closet and realized I have a bunch of Samuelsohn, Corneliani and Canali suits (either NWT or NWOT but unhemmed and untouched). Will list them B&S or eBay but would like to sell locally if possible.

    Hi Styleforum!

    Second post here. I recently had a MTM suit made by my friend's suit operation in Toronto. It was made at what I believe to be a reasonable price (~$450). I went through one fitting and have been wearing it for the past week - wanted to get it checked out here as I am planning to get another suit made by him.

    Any recommendations you'd make in terms of changes or alterations? I was thinking of maybe making the pants slimmer? Any thoughts on the length, buttons, lapel? And are the creases on the back because of the material (Super 120s wool blend) or fixable? Am going in tomorrow for alterations and was planning on ordering another suit next week. Thanks!

    I'm not a suit expert but from what I can see. back seems to be pulling, the left sleeve length seems to be too long. for me the trousers are hugging the leg too much, but that's just me.

    It's not bad, but it looks closer to an off the rack fit as opposed to MTM.

    Depending on your budget, you might want to try Samuelson through Harry Rosen.

    +1. Pants are slim enough IMO

    Hey guys, big suit sale starts at Harry's outlet this week. Cascading discounts on suits.

    And they have Samuelson suits in 38R for $299 (before discount)

    Appreciate the quick responses! What changes would need to be made to make it look more like a MTM than an OTR? Is it the way the material sits, the shape at certain parts, the fabric? Just wondering if theres anything I can say on the next suit I can have a better fit.

    It's not bad. I'd say open up the leg a bit and see if the tailor can work on the sleeve pitch to minimize the wrinkling. Also take out the waist just a bit as it looks like there's some tugging.

    The shoulder looks good.

    Wear in good health!

    Re: suit feedback... make lapels wider, jacket a little longer, soften up the shoulder. Pants are already very tapered, maybe even too much and I'm not being old fuddy duddy I promise. Also, the suit looks a little stiff. not sure how else to put it. Shoulders and chest are hard lines, waist / drop is sharp.

    I wear 38S with a few small tailoring needed. Does it make sense cost-wise to purchase 38R and get it shortened? Would it break the look if I have it shortened?

    I'm assuming they have quite a few in that size and sale runs through to the weekend?
