Getting tempted into the casual suit game with this number from Our Legacy. It's made of a slubby, raw silk fabric similar to that used on their Classic Shirts. If its anything like the shirting it''ll be very soft and drape beautifully. You buy the jacket and trousers as separates but they obviously go together. Not so sure about the button stance though, could be 3-roll-2 though? They sometimes button them unnecessarily iirc.

Shown here with their white silk shirt for the full combo.

the OL archive blazer fits a bit odd (i mean look at that picture) but i've only handled chunky winter ones, not a summer one so it might be a bit easier. they do a 3-roll-2 but its not this one.

my fav casual suit this season from them is the 2 button indigo twill one, currently serving well

Liking the Old Town a lot, wonder if they would add a double vent on suit for me?


I wonder if Old Town do custom jobs. Presumably they would for the right cost but I guess altering a jacket pattern from single (or no vents) to double vents is actually pretty tricky? It's hard to tell from their website but I'm sure I've tried on something of theirs that had one vent. I think we can all agree that double vents is the superior vent system though.

Looking and their website is making me covet their suits again. Think I might be trying to move the Muji CASUAL SUIT I posted above as it's too tight across the shoulders. Any takers feel free to PM me

Not into menswear at all, but this speaks to me for some reason.

I hope they do because $850 is very reasonable for a three piece MTO suit in such high quality fabrics.

Strange seeing non-suits being posted in a suit thread.

hitting this thread with the adrenaline spike to the heart

i've been thinking about the casual suit a lot since hypefest. it occurred to me that this fit pic arms race has gotten so many guys blowing vast sums in order to all dress the same in the hopes of marginally flexing on each other, and even guys with a principal interest in streetwear and sneakers should dip their toe into cool suiting. in a world obsessed with off-white collabs and proxying exclusive friends-and-family designer-collab merch tees, the most powerful thing you can do is bring it back to tailoring sometimes.

been thinking a ton about getting a black double-breasted suit with substantial peak lapels that i'd wear with like a white tee, a short small chain (or two) and white low AF1s. brand recs and other styling ideas would be appreciated, of course

i agree with you

i like a lot of suits and things that resemble suits/are adjacent to them ("business-y" things, i guess, i like HL lol) but so often worry that i might just look like a high school debate team member or like i am being forced to dress up for a presentation/an "i am too young for this and this feels like a costume" feeling? though i mostly feel that way about like... Suit Suits/more traditional kinds of associated-looks -- like, i feel it with a very standard button-down + pencil skirt + blazer combo too, and i prefer slightly-off variations of it all. i work in an office now though so the debate club feeling might go away. if that doesn't work (even if it does work, tbh) my roommates and i are throwing a party and the theme is gonna be "white collar crime"

i like these things:

Thing with wearing suits with a t shirt is most are mega uncomfortable around the neck and the neck gets filthy pretty fast then you have to dry clean the whole thing.

Stick to cotton unless you're a baller.
