    Yea, MTM is expensive. My tailor charges $1K+ and doesn't allow much variability in terms of style. This one has held up pretty well over the past year so I doubt I would need to upgrade for another 2-3 years depending on the job environment.

      Yeah, you seem to get some nice fits from OTR/tailoring, so not necessary to get MTM necessarily. I went overboard this year in terms of what suits/sportcoats I got, but I've also tried to be strategic in terms of what I've bought--so that none overlap a ton and each sees a good bit of use. Currently my suits aren't getting a ton of use, but when I wear suits it tends to come in clumps, so need a decent number to wear. I'm hoping to be even more selective in my adds in 2017... but we shall see, I do really enjoy new sportcoats...

Bruce Field is somehow able to source great fabrics and sell sport coats at a reasonable price though with some Euro fashion forward flair (thinner lapels, slightly cropped jackets). Once this wears out, I will figure out how to replace it with the same fabric but better construction.
        Thanks for the info. I've had my eyes peeled for something similar for a while but without any luck. Feel like I'm going to need to broaden my horizons to find what I'm looking for...

        Please do. Interested to see which direction you went with styling and how it turns out.

          Congrats on the brush with fame. Is that a Facebook live feed they played on the local news or what?

            Yeah. Local paper did Facebook livestream or whatever. Arraignment of a homicide defendant. Friend of mine texted me about it while we were still doing the rest of the arraignments/bail hearings.

                It's nice, now you don't even have to wait for stories to be posted on the newspaper websites to get idiotic comments, you get them real-time.

                    I hope you also get to informally serve as image consultant for your client. Dude isn't doing himself any favors rolling into court like that.

                        Is this the brown S&M jacket? I am going back and forth between the brown and the blue, especially now that the price is even lower. Thoughts?

                        These are my current sportscoats: navy SuSu Hanava, a navy/gray/olive plaid(ish) jacket from Ader Milan, a light brown hounds-tooth with rush/olive overcheck Southwich, a green/gray LBM 1911 and a darker brown with burgundy windopane (Brooks Brother's Own/Southwick). I also have a light brown HB from S&M which is linen/wool and a warmer weather item.

                          Excuse my less than optimal lighting and photo skills, but here's me doing my best [MENTION=4069]JBarwick[/MENTION] impersonation:



                          Tried to get another pic up but got the error message again... ugh.

                              • [MENTION=2622]hornsup84[/MENTION] - Looks great! My jacket has stripes of blue, green, red, and orange in it. Yours looks similar but I love the button color and patch pockets.
                                [MENTION=14682]Leanderthal[/MENTION] - I am wearing my Chipp rust grenadine today as well though not with that beautiful of a knot. I get a fat stubby knot since it is so thick but the dimple comes through.
