The perfect men’s business suit

The NYT had a great article on the perfect men’s business suit.

…the specs of the contemporary man’s suit are as follows: a two-button closure; narrow lapels in a high-notch or peak style; high armholes; narrowly set and thinly padded shoulders; low-waist, slim-cut pants with hems that never quite touch the top of the shoes, daring to bare (just as women first did a century ago) a bit of sock or skin.

In essence: not so baggy and more fitted to show of your frame. If only I had a frame to support such a classy investment!

  1. David,
    I found your blog and have enjoyed perusing through your witty comments. You need someone well versed in the art of permanent men’s fashion to write in the Fashion category. That person is I.

  2. I recently purchased a nice blue pin-strip suit from Men’s Warehouse (do you cringe at that name) for a wedding in November. I’ve received some praise for it. Sadly, the pants were already tight last week when I wore it for a power meeting.

    Thank goodness tri-season is upon me once again. I’m looking forward to a tailored suit at that time, perhaps a tux for the october wedding. Would you be able to assist?

  3. Absolutely. I’m not sure if you know, but I work for The Miller Brothers in Buckhead…the finest men’s clothing shop in Atlanta; arguably in the southeast. On top of carrying fabrics from Zegna and Dormeuil, we have a full bar, fireplace, 42″ plasma, and a cozy patio where we regularly cook on the grill.

    About the tux…a Miller Brothers tux is beautiful and perfect. The best dressed men in Atlanta wear them.

    And to answer your question about The Men’s Warehouse…yes, I cringe. You’re better than that David.

  4. A fine, tailored suit will be my award once I shed some of these pounds.

    Would Miller Brothers be able to assist? Some styles I like

    Although I cringe when I see you offer gift certificates from “$10 to $10,000”.
