    I am wandering around downtown Buffalo. I am not even going to be the proverbial man of false words, this place looks like it is in rough shape.

    Went to Brooks Brothers to pick up my new blazer after alteration. Looks like crap so I wait a few more weeks. I must admitt I'm not feeling very warm and fuzzy about their ability to correct this.

    As a guy who just has too much difficulty finding shit that fits OTR, I've resorted to MTM for suits and blazers.

    With dress shirts, I'm sticking with BB for now because I just need to tailor them slightly and I absolutely will never ever iron my shirts, so the non-iron cotton is key.

    As for blazers and everything more 'substantial,' it's just easier to get it done custom. I'm assuming you're paying at least $600 for a BB blazer? For a couple hundred more, you can get a custom blazer with a much higher quality fabric.

    I suggest you take that route next time.

    +1. MTM or custom is the only way I have suits that don't look awful on me. Off the rack usually just doesn't work for me.

    I'm gone roughly 2/3rds of the month and I get pics from my friends of them wearing my clothes. I've loaned a shirt and shorts once and they've taken it as a me giving freedom to wear my expensive stuff. Wouldn't be nearly as annoyed if they actually asked. Then I look like the dick when i tell them to stop wearing my shit and if they want nicer stuff to buy it themselves.

    Dood I am 15 minutes from Buffalo right now. I was there around noon today. And yes, it is crappy, though with a lot of beautiful architecture.

    Why didn't I see you then?

    Why don't you come through security and pay me a visit? (At the airport I mean.)

    This was my first visit to Buffalo. The city really looked dead. But yeah, some of the architecture was quite beautiful, especially the City Hall.

    Do they have keys to your place, or are they roommates?


    Just tell them not to wear your shit, you don't need to make an issue about how your stuff is nicer. Unless you're a doormat and/or they're trying to take advantage of you, really shouldn't be a problem.

    Since when do guys share clothes anyway?

    Hey Conne, I'm in Washington DC now. Did you follow me here as well? If so, please pay me a visit and we could have fun times. (I am at Dulles.)

    Just good friends that are always over. They know what's up, they're just still in college mode (recent graduates). They stopped drinking my booze after I put them in their place and I don't see this clothing thing being an issue. today was the first time they really just blatantly wore a few of my jackets and sent me pics of them looking smug.

    Edit: and yes I basically asked them "when the fuck did we turn into 15yr old girls who share clothes?"
