was looking to buy gifts for the family and walked into a bb, it was nice and quiet inside but at 20% off things were still too expensive for me so I checked online to see when the best sales were and came across this little gem:

>>>I can empathize with the guy who complains about the boxy suits. If I ever go back to wearing suits, I am going with the euro cut, business attire be damned. Come to think of it, I may have a couple custom tailored. The only decent ones I have had were hand-me-downs from my brother who had them custom tailored and one Italian suit I bought in the garment district in L.A. I even wore that on my wedding day.

No more trouble for WS guys as the new bill (welcomed by Jamie Dimon!) which also gives ppl to donate upto 320K (instead of previous cap of 32k) so that they will be too difficult to touch by ppl like bharrara if they commit any crime/fraud.

Do you wear suits in your line of work? If not, why bother with suits? If the shoulder fits you correctly, then the rest(sides, sleeves, etc) can be altered to make the suit fit you well.
Some people use outfits from Hong Kong for custom tailoring. They fly to the US twice a year with a measuring tape and cloth samples. They take your measurements and money, and in 4-5 weeks mail your finished clothes from Hong Kong.

>>I haven't had to wear suits in a few years- since we went business casual, but when I did, it was the standard american variety (boxy). I have a bunch of them in the closet and luckily I am one of those body types that is fine with the off-the-rack sizes (or so I thought). From a style standpoint, I never cared for the american cut though.  I still would like a couple of well cut suits for formal events and maybe a set of egyptian cotton shirts. I get the flyers from the hong kong guys and will look into it. Alternatively, maybe I should have them done next time I pass by there. There were Chinese guys who would do them in a day I think in the Kowloon area. I don't know if this is still the case.
