    Ask him but I'd say a two button conservative cut. It seems like the house cut is pretty slim, which even he admits to.


    Can't go wrong with a solid navy or medium gray, and you can wear it to just about anything. He'll show you fabrics there likely, but I'd ask for some kind of year round wool.

    fabric = 100% wool or tropical wool. most versatile.

    cut = 2 button.

    Thanks. I was considering the 2 button conservative cut myself. I want something safe and not too radical just yet, for a suit. I was also thinking wool, and blue or gray, but I'll wait to see the fabrics on hand.

    so I got the traditional cut, the one that is conservative, in a two button navy I think. I forget. I got fitted this past saturday by the asian guy on the site. took a lot of measurements, moreso than the last tailor did at the menswarehouse:ugh2: a coupla years ago. the suit should be on my doorstep mid sept. cant wait, and hope it fits, provided I dont gain any weight.

    now I got to look for a slim fit shirt, and some shoes :hs:
