I already have suits in every color of the rainbow, so I decided to commission a black suit that I can use for formal occasions.
Note, my shoulders are sloped, with my right shoulder...
I was always under the impression that MTM suits, other than Kiton or Oxxford perhaps, were 100% machine made, with no hand work at all. I was pleasantly surprised to notice handwork in my new H. Freeman (not to be confused with Hickey Freeman) MTM suit. I noticed it under the collar and in the...

Grab the right sleeve by the inside lining at the shoulder seam and pull it out so that the shoulder is...
I am considering purchasing a MTO double monk from Martegani. I plan on wearing it with a suit (possiblely for work). It will be shell cordovan and either color #6 or Mahogani.
1) My question is which would be preferable, a plain front (similar to the C&J Seymour) or a cap toe (similar to...
Has anyone noticed that the supposed original retail price shown on STP for AE belts is way too high?
For example, for these two belts, STP claims that the retail price is really $195 so they are giving you the belts at a 69% discount...
