      Navy suede double monks from JC/Alfred Sargent. They somehow dropped to $100 one or two years ago when JC was clearing them out

        Oh those! Crazy steal, I had an opportunity to grab them but passed like a dummy, thinking I had too many shoes at the time. I did, but I've since sold most everything from that era. Those I would have kept. Nice shoes!

          Thanks! Yeah, really crazy steal. I almost didn't get them 'cause they're not very versatile tbh. Now I wish I would've gotten the boots they were clearing out as well

            I like your shirt, I mean color combination and the check size. And your Owl mug is great.

              Thanks!

              This is the shirt on JCF, may be $10 right now if the current promo code applies.

              The owl mug is from Harry Potter World in Orlando haha

                A week after receiving this in the mail, gone through the tailor, finally here it is:



                First S&M suit.
                The trouser inseam are longer than what I wanted. Might need another half inch shortening as I'm never a fan of full break pants.

                36R and fit of the jacket waist is spot on. Only had to shorten the sleeves.
                If only the shoulders don't divot and absolute perfect, this could have passed as a MTO.
                Trouser waist leaves no room for lunch and beer though, although I can live with it.
                I'm actually thinking of removing the belt loops.

                  So the question to my mind [MENTION=13476]AsianDapper[/MENTION], is would you purchase from them again? And can you compare the quality to a SuSu suit?

                    I would definitely purchase from them again for sure! Given that I really like how both jacket and trousers fit without crazy alterations, this is a real winner for me. And me being in the great white north makes it easy to return something should I need to.

                    And sorry, I have no SuSu suit yet.

                    I'm eyeing this Lazio light gray wool flannel but let's see if I can convince the wife first.

                        Hi again - it's been a while. Last couple of days; trying out two new ties. Second one might be too monotone with the shirt and jacket.



                        Lands End linen-cotton jacket
                        Barney's silk tie (from the warehouse, $30)
                        J Crew Bowery linen pants (on sale, about $30)
                        Brooks Brothers shirt (thrifted)
                        Franklin & Freeman Venetian loafers (are you kidding me, $18 and worth every penny)
                        Orient watch



                        Tombolini jacket (a steal, $100 on Yoox)
                        Berg & Berg bourette tie ($39)
                        Brooks Brothers shirt (eBay)
                        Haggar khaki pants (thrifted)
                        F&F Venetian loafers

                          [MENTION=13476]AsianDapper[/MENTION] I think you just tipped the scale for me in favor of S&M my friend. I've wondered how S&M would fit someone with a similar frame to me. Suit looks real good!

                            Of all the suit jackets I've tried on (both no-brand and good ones like J.Crew, Boss, etc) S&M are the most spot-on with regards to my torso proportions. And it doesn't happen all the time.

                            The material is very nice and light (275gsm iirc) and drapes well!

                              Ok [MENTION=13476]AsianDapper[/MENTION], as a fellow Great White North person, I'll give S&M a try for my next suit. I was holding out for another SuSu model, but as [MENTION=11794]jharrisonbarrett[/MENTION] said you may have just tipped the scales.

                                How are those Barney's ties? I was looking at that same one but was skeptical.
