It’s always nice to treat yourself for a pair of custom trousers. Today, we review my latest purchase: chocolate brown peached cotton from Stóffa.
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!
It’s always fun when we get to have a themed group post. As stated in the name of this article, the guys and I looked to the Armoury’s Spring editorial for inspiration for our outfits during this past week.
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.
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!
