You should also mention the average cost of a taylor.
A machine-washable suit, you say? O_o
Most $100 suits probably are! there aren’t a lot of charcoal pinstripe suits right now under $600 surprisingly, but if you find one or can afford to upgrade you should.
At that price point, if I were OTR-compatible (too short and stocky, generally), I’d probably be curious enough to give that one a shot.
I got those same shoes, but cap toe from the Goodwill from $4
Forget the Invicta diver…check out the Orient Mako for arguably the best automatic watch for <$140
I have to agree. I love my Orient Ray.
entry level agent LOL brilliant.
The tie Daniel Craig is wearing looks more like a pin-dot. I think Ive seen that around for cheap
Invicta, not even once
Why’s that? It’s got several hundred reviews with a 4 star average rating.
Just saw the movie today. I was drawn to how the collar points in this outfit seemed “pressed” or “glued” down around the tie underneath it (you can see it in the pic above). Is this just some magical wardrobe glue that they used or is there an actual shirt collar style that does that?
Koby, I have exactly the same questino. Very interested to hear anyone’s answer!
It’s a tab collar.
Certain shirts have a button tab mid-way down the collar that allows the two points to be fastened behind the tie. You can get the same effect with a little more style (but only if it fits your personality) with a collar bar.
Never buy a $100 suit. It’s a waste of money. It will fall apart and generally look like garbage, and you’ll be no closer to buying genuine quality than you were before. If you’ve a job that requires that you wear suits, you’ve a job that allows you to afford suits more expensive than $100. If you just want to wear suits because you like them, then save up and buy something nice. I recommend Thick as Thieves for made to measure, and Ralph Lauren for RTW.
AHHHHH The pants only go to 34……must lose a little bit more weight. This get up is great though.
If you have a good tailor, no suit will look like garbage.
That’s technically true. It’s perfectly possible to make an H&M suit look good for a while, but it will fall apart quickly, and then it will look like garbage.
Try indochino.com if you want a tailored suit that fits very well. Its great because you put in your measurements and then get it in a few weeks completely tailored to fit you, and the price remains the same for any customization. If a suit is 500 bucks, it’ll stay 500 bucks.
