We shall see.

Also found this place today - http://kamakurashirts.com - slightly pricier than TM Lewin/Tyrwhitt, but by far and away a much better option. Quality is excellent and the Tokyo Slim fit is one of the best rtw fits I've tried.

Bought a midnight blue tux from Moss Bros a few months ago, wore it to a charity event, happy with it and a bargain price £150ish.

What are peoples thoughts of midnight blue tux's at black tie do's. Will some places not accept that?

Can anyone recommend any good tailors/alterationists in Glasgow? Nothing too fancy, just looking for someone that can do simple things at a good price

Anyone recommend formal shirts that don't flare out at the forearm/elbow?

Dunno whether it's because I have really long arms or what but almost every shirt I try I hate how the arms look, main reason I rarely wear shirts unless I have to. The cuffs are tight to the wrist and then all go baggy around the forearm and elbow like they've been filled with air. Even if the shirts are slim fitting, nearly always get this. example.

I want something with straighter, slimmer arms and wider cuff.

Probably not gonna happen off the peg Bill.

Cheapest option would be using an online MTM service - ModernTailor etc, but I've found their quality is hit and miss.

Need a club collar shirt for graduation. Where's the best place to get one bespoke or made to measure, and what prices am I looking at?

Back at work now and it's nice being able to rock some sartorial looks, rather than clothes I don't mind the kid getting his shit on.

Today…

Jacket (to match the walls) - MTM from HK
Shirt - Charles Tyrwhytt
Tie - The Tie Bar

What's the occasion? I would tend to go grey but that's just personal preference.
