    everyday blazers

    If your planning to wear these often the key is durability. So look for a wool suit or wool blend with not a high thread count which will usually be a medium to low end when it comes to price lmk what kind of style your going after

    TF when was the last time you tried to make one?

    Not sure how active it would be but a suit thread would be good to have so if you're up for it you should make another one and it for sure won't get deleted this time

    Yeah I don’t think it was you it was like a year ago I believe and I was getting the vibe that people on here thought suits were too old school

    Alright so usually that means skinny lapels with a table bit of shine and slim cut with something unique about it. Looking now any price range?

    Nah most of us just don't have jobs/lifestyles where we're into suits like that lol. I've been working from home too so that doesnt help. A few ppl do though so it could get poppin

    I rather cop two black suits

    one below 150 unless the quality is complete trash (casual)
    one perhaps below 250? (for office/church/etc as im going to corporate America in the near future)

    Yeah very understandable right now but there could be a revolution similar to the roaring 20’s of people dressing up like never before after this pandemic.

    ignore the whole fit but this is the idea of the more casual side of the suit wear

    Ok so obviously your just starting out in suiting like everyone does so as someone who helped myself and others I think it would be best to create your own suit to find out what you like and dislike. A place like Itailor would be a great start where some fabrics (most notably black) is a very affordable place (currently 199$ for a black suit which is hard to beat) to make custom suits which will fit your body exactly how you want and the best part is you kind of get to see how the process works plus what you like. This is the link itailor.com/designsuits

    Further instruction follow on how to make it futuristic

    So after you pick the fabric you want ensure that you have:

    • Maximum 2 buttons (ideally 2 if your wearing for business as 1 is for more like a party or more casual coat)

    • The great thing about itailor is that the lapels seem to be on the thinner side so now it is between a notch or peak lapel. Notch would be for an every day look while peak would be for more of a formal event/partywear.

    • 2 straight pockets

    -buttons are to show off that you have a custom suit (most people wont notice) working butoons do allow you to roll the sleeves up which help in some occasions

    -side vents

    • Pants are on the tricky side since there are a lot of new styles trending that could be considered futuristic and a lot of it can be dependent on body type to make it work. If your body type fits it slim might be the safest bet but flared pants and even a normal cut are coming back and can be considered futuristic.

    • If you are on the bigger side in the waist and thighs a skinny fit is not recommended and it might be good to look at a single pleated pant (no double pleats) as they are coming back and look quite good when a person has big legs imo (gotta get my leg game up)

    continued...

    -Pockets are up to you (no pockets to be ultra trendy)

    • belt loops up to you (please wear suspenders or well fitted pants if no belt loop which would be the most futuristic option)

    -If plants are pleated always have the bottom of the pants cuffed if not you probably want to have a straight cut to the bottom (ignore anyone who says you cant have non pleated pants cuffed though)

    -the cool part about custom suits is can choose any type of lining on the inside which is appealing and is up to you how crazy you want to go. (Note that if your suit sleeves are able to be rolled up one can show off that lining)

    -contrasting thread button colors can be tacky and futuristic to middle aged dads most times but can work in some cases up to you if you want to be bold enough to try it
