Then see my pal in Madison Sq Garden for a few rounds of fisticuffs. Although I'm wearing a wristwatch I do have a pocket watch somewhere…

It's a nice suit. I really loathe ones with that degree of prim and proper formality.

Agree on trousers being a bit too short. Add some lenght and it's ok. Rest looks good though

Suit looks nice but I would sat the arms are a tad short. Will pull up too much when you raise your arms no?

Need something for an interview next week, if I head into a Suit Supply store will they be able to sort me out there and then or would they have to order in?

They'll most likely have the suit in the size you want, if all you need are trousers taking up it can be done in half hour. Any other alterations to jacket or trousers and it'll take a few days, think it took 4 days to get mine done.

Timmbo - looks awesome. Love the cashmere tie too Cool How much did it all set you back? Are all of his suits made/finished in mainland China?

jwool, I think they do have RTW suits (at least you can buy RTW from the website), so as long as you don't need much in terms of alterations you should be fine. I am heading to the new Suit Supply in Toronto in a couple of weeks, looking forward to seeing if they are up there in terms of quality with my J.Crew Ludlow(s), but for an even better price point.

My nans getting remarried in April. Small service in a stately home, need some advice on what to wear. Basically I don't want to spend bucks as I never dress smart, and i have a pair of unworn black/black wallabees for a slightly smarter occasion. I was thinking some smarter wool trousers, tapered fit. Just stuck on what to wear on the top half. I suppose that would mean wool Jacket aswell. Any ideas?

Sure that'll work. Just make sure their bulkiness matches the trousers. If it's Trickers fx you shouldn't have a very tight pant.

Need pics, as Navy and Grey can come in various shades and Tan shoes can look well dodge.

A colour I stear well clear of when it comes to suits
