    Thanks, just the info I needed!

    Also good to know. The Dock I tried on in the store was just a tad snug in the chest with a heavy sweater on. It sounds like the Bayswater will be perfect. Is there a way to tell from the tag if a Bayswater is the slim version?

      Actually now that you mention it, I thought that it was slim, but maybe it's not - I don't see a tag on it, and I don't see it on the email invoice either from when I bought it.

      • Where is a good place to go to get a suit for someone who wears a suit maybe once a year sometimes once every two years.

        I want to know my sizes in case I want to purchase another one without guessing, I have never been measured for a clothing item since I was married 10 years ago for my tux.

        I would prefer to keep it around $300

        Please help

        Thanks

        • You can pick up a BR suit on sale for about that much. You can also try the JCrew Factory Thompson suits in that price range. I wear a suit maybe twice a year and I only own 2 BR suits and 1 JCF Thompson. I've often thought I should upgrade to something of higher quality but I just don't wear suits often enough to justify it.

            Probably a dumb question, do I just go to a BR an try one on till I find one that fits, do they size and tailor you in store?

            I am a Levis and polo type person, dockers for work and polo. I am like a 3 year old when it comes to anything about wearing nice clothes.

            Any advice for someone like me

            • At BR you are buying off the rack. Then take it to a tailor yourself to get it altered.

              You'll have to try them on yourself and see what fits. I would suggest googling around online to see how to determine the correct fit on a suit. Most of the people that work there won't have a clue and won't be of much help. The condensed version is - Make sure the shoulders fit and you can get other stuff tailored such as shortening sleeves, etc.

                • [MENTION=3910]jackbauer24[/MENTION] Having emailed Madison Los Angeles, they said I missed the return window so there is nothing they can do for me even though it was an error on their end for having mislabeled the boots as male sizing on their website (and inventory I'm guessing as the conformation email showed the same mistake). However, the website said final sale on all sale items, hence the lack of action on my part until I was 100% sure it was their error, and the return window should play no part in this. I understand that they might not be open to accepting returns of worn goods, but not even a discount for me for a mistake on their part? Disappointing.

                  TL;DR I do not recommend shopping with Madison Los Angeles, and their customer service could be more accommodating

                  • Can someone identify the gloves and watch in the 12 Days of Dappered: Money Clip post?

                    The Tumi money clip is pictured with a pair of nice gloves and a great looking watch.

                        Doesn't that suit get below $200? It's $218 with the "50% off" deal.

                        • Hey everyone,

                          I'm new here, but have lurked a bit.

                          Here's my situation: in the spring of 2013, I purchased two suits from Men's Warehouse. Since then I've dropped 40 pounds. These suits no longer fit. I went to MW last night, and they told me that ballpark it would be about $170 for each for alterations. The suits aren't that great, but they're my suits.

                          My concern is thus: I plan on continuing my gym and diet habit, and running another marathon next year where I will inevitably drop more weight.

                          What's the best method for:
                          1) Having a good, functional suit now ?
                          2) Not having this same problem a year from now?

                          Thanks so much.

                            Do you wear a suit daily for work? If so, I would go to JAB/JCF/BR and grab a cheap, slim fitting, all wool suit or two in the low 200's range. Mid grey and navy would be my picks for color. If not, then I would wait it out a bit and see where you end up settling at.

                              I would get a second opinion on the alterations. MW is likely just trying to get you to buy another suit from them or just ripping you off; it's like taking your car to the dealership for new brakes. They probably only need to take in the sides which is a $50 alt max.
                              I had JAB say they can't take in a overcoat I bought from them. I took it to my dry cleaners and $50 later I have beautifully fitting coat. Generally speaking and based on my experience, the sales people at JAB and MW are not credible.

                              • This is my first post here.

                                What are your thoughts on this sport coat? Is it versatile? I'm not sure what type of bottoms I would wear with it other than jeans. I have a gift card so I'm wondering if I should wait.
