Vulture Suits Review: The Brown Double Breasted Suit

IMG_1699

This is a review of Vulture Suits and Ethan received a free suit in exchange for doing this review.

I think that double breasted suits are awesome.  Since they’re not that common to find while thrifting, I’ve found that the closest I can get to vintage/bespoke style ones are by going MTM and changing some of the customizations  to fit my needs!  I also don’t want to spend too much, since $300-500 is my usual limit on suits (including tailoring).  This is why I was pretty happy that Cecil from Vulture Suits approached me to do a review of their suits.  It was a great opportunity for me to test out another MTM DB option!

Please note that this review was updated in a 2nd article.   Click here to see it!

Recently, I made a point to try out a MTM suit by Indochino, a custom suiting and shirt company started in 2007.  I have seen other reviews of this service by Articles of Style, Dappered, and even the Young and Fine Gentleman.   To try it out for myself, I saved up a couple hundred bucks and purchased a suit, made from the measurements I provided.

Now this review was written a while ago, since I have worn this suit (after tailoring) many, many, many times.  This review shows the original, unaltered garment that I received right out of the box.

Styles of the 2015 Vintage Fashion Expo

This weekend I was able to go to the 2015 Vintage Fashion Expo in Downtown Los Angeles.  Vintage fashion is a personal hobby of mine.  While I do love wearing modern clothes, there is something about the cut and patterns of the 1920s-1950’s that interest me.  So this weekend, I went to the Expo wearing one of my favourite and most unique vintage pieces.  I was also able to snap a few shots of people’s fashion  that I enjoyed!
