You have an unlimited amount of money to buy an outfit, you have to wear this outfit for the rest of your life, not the same exact clothes but same look every day forever. What do you buy?

I choose a woman's bunny outfit and a jhonny. Always ready to go m8.

I'll search for a proper outfit later, I have to work now.

Plain black t-shirt, plain black zipped hoodie, plain black jogging bottoms, plain black skate shoes. More or less what I wear most says. My look is what I call 'council metal'.

I'd become a Buddhist monk and wear one of those fetching colourful robes.

Can you calculate the probability that all three poofs will be wearing the same dress at the party and how many times can 3846's dress change before it overheats?

What >>3848 said. It'd be nice to go mental on shoes for variation, though.

Also, what if we have to wear a uniform for work?

I'm the same a black linen suit, which you could change up with different shirts and ties.

Unless you're Johnny Cash or an undertaker, black is not a colour of suit you ought to be wearing on most occasions. Charcoal.

Well that's not very fair.


Someone told me this years ago too but I ignored them, and I'm glad I did, it's my black suit that gets me the most compliments, I'm always told I look very sharp, compared to my lighter hued suits.

For whatever reason the quality of the suit seems even more important with solid black, though. You can tell an £80 M&S "you can put this one in the washing machine!" suit a mile off if it's black, not so for the pinstripe and charcoal models.

Aye. If you're going for a black suit, at least go for pinstripe.

In that case, you've got a quality suit. Be glad of that. But if it were me I'd change up some other colours (a non-white shirt, for example), otherwise you are in danger of looking like the sharpest funeral attendee. Or a Tarantino gangster.

On the other hand, most people don't actually know their arse from their elbow when it comes to mens formal wear, so most people apart from internet critics, tailors, and the especially tedious will just see a guy wearing a nice suit.

Let's hope it fits you better than that model.

Since this has basically become a suit thread, I went to visit a tailor on Saturday. Bought an offer on LivingSocial for £399 that offered a "bespoke suit from a Savile Row tailor" and they were taking measurements in a hotel in town on Thursday. Turns out I was the only one that bought the offer so they said they'd just come round my house to save booking a hotel room. That fell through, as they rang mid-afternoon to say "We need to sort something out, don't we?" in a broad Yorkshire accent. He asked me if I could go to him and said their might be a free shirt in it for me if I do, and said that they were based in Dewsbury.
I forewarned him on the phone that I am twenty-one years of age and I'm a mod, so the suit that I want is to be trim-fitting and high-fastening and that I'm highly aware of the turbulent history between mods and tailors, so I didn't want to waste his time and my petrol by driving to Dewsbury for him to tell me he wouldn't make my suit how I wanted it. His response was that they'd have to forgo my free shirt in order to make my suit bespoke rather than made-to-measure if I was to want a mod suit.

So my £399 spent on a £999 "bepoke Savile Row suit" quite quickly became £399 plus petrol to and from West Yorkshire (not London) for a made-to-measure suit.

When I got there, the bloke from the phone wasn't there and instead I was greeted by a lad maybe a few years older than myself and shown two material booklets, I asked if there were any more but he said the offer only covered those two. The booklets were full of various different businessman-like fabrics, all blacks, charcoals and pin-stripes and not at all what I'm after, and I asked if he had any mohair, to which I was told it would be another £250 to have my suit made of mohair. Alright, it's expensive stuff. I would have considered putting the difference towards but he said "Isn't yours meant to be bespoke because it's in a certain style?" I looked at the sheet he had out for me and it already had all the patterns he intended to use drawn out, he was just going to fill in the measurements. It became quite evident that I was taking a bit of a gamble so I told him I'd just get my voucher refunded and left.

tl;dr If you want a mod suit, go to a mod tailor. Modculture's website have a list for anyone interested. Buy your own material.

>I forewarned him on the phone that I am twenty-one years of age and I'm a mod

This seems like an odd thing to say, but considering it now I kind of understand it. They were probably expecting someone twice your age and waistline to show up for the offer. Bad tale, chap. Sorry it didn't pan out.

I was actually intending to be a suit for a round of interviews coming up soon. I've only got an awful black one from my mid-teens worn for weddings and funerals (I know), and desperately need to make this next one a solid choice. Can anyone comment of the quality of common suit shops? A Moss Bros. recently opened up in my town...

I've had mates before go to see tailors and they've refused to do certain things with suits. I've also been treat like a right little toerag by a tailor before just because I wanted some trousers tapering. It's the deliberately undersized clothing that they have a problem with, but I've more or less grown out of that - physically and mentally. I have quite a collection of suits and blazers, all bought when I was eighteen and a 38" chest right through to bring twenty and fully convinced I was still a 38" chest even after hitting the gym quite hard.

I have two more suits but they're in bags and I can't be bothered to unzip them. These are all the ones that don't fit, sadly enough. The two in the cupboard and a recently purchased and altered Ben Sherman (I was shocked to find something worth buying) blazer are all that fit. Sage because I had to stand on my tip-toes to get all of these into the picture and nobody gives a fuck, this is just masturbation for me.

In answer to the OP, <--- that's my chosen look.

Actually, I give a fuck. I'm a 38" chest and I may well be in that same boat trying to find a nice suit for myself. And that's a rather nice collection, there. If you found someone your size you'd make a packet on that.

If I was being practical it would have to be a well tailored, fairly boring dark suit.

If I was being 'an individual', chequered button shirt of varying bright colours, straight fit jeans, trainers for training, and likely a baseball cap.


I found that quite interesting. There's something charming about the world of suits.
