    I need to know which materials to get, colors, styles, etc. I'm a teacher I want 4 or 5 for daily use, and 1 for going out. And 1 -2 for just looking like the man.

    i dont think 4-5 is unreasonable if you're wearing suits every day. I have 4-5 but primarily rotate through 3 of them. After 3 years of daily wear and occasional dry clean, most of them on their last legs

    Mine were ~$300 a little more or less depending on the material

    They should have bolts of fabric there. The one i'm wearing now says "Wool & Cashmere - Italy" . I think I remember one of mine saying "Super___ Wool"

    basic suit colors Black/Navy/Charcoal
    i like fine pinstripes
    grey is nice too for a summersuit

    I went to Beethoven Suits on Sukumvit Dr...something like that
    I found them because my uncle lives there and has had made by them before so they were legit


    they have all sorts of catalogs: Dior/RL/Hugo/etc that you can just point to and say I want it cut like this suit and they'll do it for you

    Cool beans. If you talk to him, can you ask if he still recommends that place?

    i still recommend it. i'm itching to go back to thailand and get new ones from them


    they have bolts and bolts of fabric
    you choose what you want
    they size you
    you come back in 3 days and they have the chest portion of the jacket made. you put it on and they see where its too tight/loose and fine tune the measurements
    come back in 3 more days and you have a ballin suit

    i've been adjusting for inflation..i got them 3-4 years ago and they were $200-250 so i'm assuming with a weaker dollar, the price might be higher with conversion? :dunno:

    i hope you meant $300 for all of the suits. You should never pay that much for one there, even $250. Under $75 each should buy you a "quality" suit that includes everything except shoes.

    :dunno: that's what i paid for each

    even if it's a ripoff, they were all well worth it IMO
    their fit and finish are of $1000 suits

    I will be willing to spend between 200-300 per suit for 5 - 7 suits.

    roughly 4, a little more if patterned (for pattern matching), a little more if you want a vest
