    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

    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?

    Could be a guise?

    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

    My main concern is how their website is talking up how it's NYC, but I can practically guarantee that their product is made in the same factory as every other MTM company, in China.

    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.
