    Someone talk me out of making a poor life decision, this Black Fleece comes out to $516:

    Sorry, but if you can get a good fit, that's a great deal on a great quality suit!

      Who makes that? Not Thom Browne.

        I'm not sure who is currently designing the BBBF line, I think it is still Browne, but their Made in USA suits are likely made at their factory in Haverhill, MA (Southwick, now owned by BB):

          Have you ever handled Black Fleece suits? Is this lapel considered standard? (Looks to be okay in the picture, but does not look as full as your Maco) Not sure how to feel about the Three-button roll. My heart is telling me yes, but my mind is saying no to spending $500 for a first suit.

            Thank you. I like the lapel proportions better on the one you linked than in the last couple years. Now I want one.

              They're nice quality - just like regular 1Ks (Apron toe will talk to you or not - it's sleeker than red wing moc toes, clunkier than Alden Indys, from what I'm told). They're well made boots, made of nice materials. Most people size a half size down from their dress size (I size a full size down and they're still very roomy). If they don't fit well, return them. If you don't like them, return them. The price you got was good, but not earth-shattering (best I've seen is ~$150 for STP seconds. I treat seconds as almost-as-good, because they're not supposed to stay immaculate. YMMV). That said - the "I ordered these, what do you think?" belongs in a different thread.

                Thanks. Surprisingly, I just got them in the mail, after being told they were on backorder. I will post an initial review shortly.

                  I have never tried one on in person, but I have researched them online. I wasn't thinking about the lapels, but yes, the Black Fleece typically has narrow lapels. They also have short jackets, but you can likely fix this by sizing up in length. That said, I would say the quality is above 1818 line. I love the 3-button roll. It buttons like a two button, but the third button give the lapel roll more fullness and character.

                  The only drawback I see is the narrow lapels, so if that bothers you, I would probably pass on this line.

                    Does this specific suit look like a bad offender? Or is it in between classic and the super slim.

                      It doesn't look super skinny, but yes, too slim for my preference.

                          . Got the blueberry blazer myself this morning. Limited sizes left.

                            Damn, out of my size 42L in that one. My only casual blazer is a navy cotton one so I could use other colors first, but that looks so good at that price it would have been hard to pass up.

                              The club blazer is included as well and is $243. That's the lowest I've seen it yet, but still a tad out of reach for me

                                Orient is doing a 40% off everything(?) with code HOLIDAYS. Doesn't seem to include one of their freebie watches like the DAPPERED30 (30%+watch), so guess it depends if you want one of the free watches or not.

                                Seems the DAPPERED30 code has a scaling for the free watch. At around $200 after discount, the watches were fairly "meh," but once I broke $500, it started offering things like the Bambino and Planet.
