i think the cut is nice, but it looks like a suit for someone over 35...
here are some suits that i think are nice and still look young:
I don't wanna spend a lot of moniez
Is the dude on the right farting? btw I like the orignal suit the most
Spooky, that's a really solid suit that is still conservative but has some modern tendencies.
I was considering it once but I'm just saving up for a custom. If you want it I'd say go for it.
how much is a custom suit out there?
i love navy suits
I have the ludwig jcrew suit. the slim cut one I think.
When I'm not worried about the economy I'm gonna get a TasT suit. For now I''m being careful, just in case you know
The dude that owns it usually sells them at a discount to StyleForum members, I think it's 395 w/ discount?
cant beat that for a MTM suit.
starts at like 475ish and goes up for premium fabrics
350 if you provide your own fabric
would be nice if it was 400 though
I need a suit to wear to interview/work. Don't think I wanna show up in one of these
475 even with theSF discount he gives?
Meh, it's still worth it to have a custom suit made here in LA by some pretty relaxed dudes that have a good rep. i've talked with the owner a couple times already.
1) flight to bombay, india - $1000
2) cab to bagavan in santa cruz - $5
3) custom made suit (beautiful quality and fabric) - ~$100 each
basically, they have a ton of books and you pick the design.
or you can do what i did and print out a bunch of designs from the internet and have them make the exact ones and they will.
my dad is from hyderabad
mines from bombay
gooooooo and get suits made!
i dunno man, i'd feel weird exploiting my motherland's people for a custom suit. there'd be like some imperialistic tendencies going on there since i'm a westerner.
you're paying them for what they do
right right right
i'll pay extra though
i usually tip them pretty well.
what? can you elaborate on this? are you saying you can actually go to a tailor in India...choose a fabric...get your size/fitting...and they'll make a suit out if it?
i'm going to india in september to say me "ba" so i might have to look into this
There are only a handful of top grade master tailors in India, a very small percentage if you think about how much of the country is involved in tailoring, and they will charge accordingly. With premium fabrics averaging easily $100 USD per yard (and on up), like their quality Hong Kong brethren, a bespoke masterwork will run you much closer to $1000 USD. Still very much a bargain considering the comparable product in the western world will start at 3X that.
