I never get the extra trousers, I just wouldn't make use. I almost always keep the blazer on, very rarely take it off so the jacket and trousers tend to weta at the same rate.

    To James' point, my tailored suits are more out of necessity due to my short height (5'6") as anything off the peg will always need work done, so I just prefer to create from scratch. But at the same though, it's also a bit of a luxury and personal treat for myself, I'm very proud of them here is the current line up.. Probably too many greys and browns!!

    Jeez ! I'm impressed but I've got to ask...
    Are you doing some of your own "quantitative easing" or are you related to the Sultan of Brunei?

    Seriously though. It looks like they have a good home.

    Looks good Masch! Where do you get your clothes from in general - I'm just starting to overhaul my work attire & am looking for ideas of places to shop.

    @Creed not only a nice selection of suits, but a wardrobe where it looks like there is proper room for them, rather than everything being jammed in a bit tight!

    I'm 5'6" too and share your pain re off the rack - though I find a Suit Supply Copenhagen normally works OK.

    Cheers guys! Yes Andy, a bit of an extravagance, but I'm boring in many other respects as I don't drink smoke etc so suits are my vice and Alex, yes it's nice to space them out a bit, I have a built in double wardrobe with 2 tiers, and most crucially here, my girlfriend doesn't live with me - if she did she'd take up the entire space just with her shoes and bag collection most likely and my suits would be squashed into a corner!

    Creed - great selection of suits! This also bears out the Fashionbeans philosophy of investing in quality, timeless items over time to build a capsule wardrobe.

    A quick question - where do you get your wooden hangers from and are they wide coat/suit hangers, rather than thinner wooden shirt hangers?

    All of my suits are on proper (i.e. broader) suit hangers but they are the black plastic types that are usually provided free with the suit.

    I have been looking at investing in some quality wooden suit hangers (not thin wood shirt hangers which I already use for everything else) but struggling to identify the best source. I've looked at the Hanger Store and the Hanger Project.

    Hi textbook, many thanks, these hanger are all mostly ikea ones - BUMERANG Curved clothes hanger - natural - IKEA , they don't have the fat rounded ends for the shoulders but do the job nicely - and they are very cheap too

    Lots of good looks been going on!

    Haven't put anything up in a while, so here's a few.

    This is the tweed blazer I recently got, post-tailoring. You'll probably notice it's too big in the shoulders, but I'm living with it until I come across something better... and 90+% of people I interact with won't see anything the matter with it.

    Anywho...

    Last week:


    Not sure if people normally do a brown tonal look, but that's what I went for here.
    Tweed Blazer
    Brown Sweater
    Brown/Blue check shirt
    Tan (Beige?) Cords

    Yesterday:


    Nothing special, just a blue tonal look (yes, I know the jeans are big... but I already blew my budget this month)

    Today:

    I considered going with a navy tie, but it was a bit smarter than what I was going for.

    Tweed Blazer
    Burgundy check shirt
    Red Cardigan
    Brown Cords
    Burgundy Scarf

    hi dorian, most of my clothes have some time by now. i dress like this for the last 15 years. so i tend to be very loyal to "my" shops.

    most of my shirts are from Sacoor Brothers (a portuguese brand. i think they have a shop in London also);
    ties (knit, wool and cotton), scarfs and pocket squares are from my own brand. it will be on the market (i hope) later this year;
    trousers from Zara, Massimo Dutti and Levis;
    the cardigans (i use them a lot, as you can see) and v-necks from Sacoor Brothers, Massimo Dutti and even Pull&Bear;
    my outwear from River Woods, Tommy Hilfiger and Massimo Dutti;
    finally the footwear it's almost all custom made in a local factory with the exception of the Sanjo sneakers (a vintage portuguese brand) to which i'm sentimentally attached because i use them since i was 10 years old.

    of course i've some pieces from other shops, mainly portuguese and italian, but these are my main suppliers.

    Cheers for that Masch - very helpful indeed. I don't have any trouble finding casual wear I like but I put feck all effort into work attire - my resolution this year was to address that as a serious project. Seeing some of the looks on this thread - yours included - made me realise how little effort I do actually put into clothes that I spend more time in than I do in my casual clothes...

    Actually ordered some work stuff from Zara the other day - I've always liked the fit of their trousers. I was looking at Dutti stuff over Christmas but wasn't too sure of the fit - but if they're anything similar to Zara, they'd be a safe bet for me.

    I haven't bought a pair of Levis in over 20 years... might be worth revisiting!

    As for the scarves and pocket squares - you have your own brand?!! That's amazing! Will you be selling online or just in retail outlets? You'll have to keep us updated on when it launches - I hope it goes really well for you.
