    Suitable - Made-to-Measure suits for $295 - any experience?

    I came across this new men's brand called Suitable. www.suitablenyc.com

    They do made-to-measure suits for $295. Great price, similar model to the other online suit shops. Sweet branding. At that price, I might actually buy it. Anyone have experience with them?

    Where's the differentiation? I get tired of all these MTM suit places popping up with the same looking websites.

    Contemplating the ramifications of such a post...



    Possibilities:
    1.) Legitimate first post
    2.) Thinly veiled advertisement

    Could be a guise?

    I didn't see anything on their website about ordering fabric samples, but I'd be curious how these stack up... especially the navy and tweed. I like the lapel size, but their jackets all seem to be cut rather short. Anyone else have thoughts?

    Under their "How We Do It" section, at the very bottom:

    "Our suits use a wool blend that feels luxurious"

    I'd be iffy about the blend, since they don't state %s of wool vs (presumably) polyester

    Jeez, why can't these online suit companies just be honest about their product? Under "Details & Care" they state wool, but they don't say 100% wool. If I ordered a "wool" suit and got a wool/poly blend, I'd be pissed.

    Hey Fred, this is Ray from Suitable. That's really fair feedback and we definitely want to make sure everything feels transparent. So we've gone through and updated every single product page with the exact composition and materials, as well as our "How We Do It" page. Thanks for being the voice of reason.
