Official Review: A Suit That Fits -

Newest Review about suit

Many customers of suits for men had a worse experience than me, as the comments to this post indicate. I recommend that readers look through those and consider my experience as just one of a range of experiences.

When you collect your new suit from A Suit That Fits, five to six weeks after the fitting, the staff suggests a thorough examination of the fit. But I have always found that impossible to know until it has been worn on three or four different occasions.

Yes, you can immediately if the jacket is tight across the chest, the trousers feel uncomfortably snug or there is an alarming amount of air circulating about your ankles. But it is hard to remember everything else to check.

The staff itself can help a little here – suggesting sitting down in the trousers, for example, to make sure there is enough give in the crotch and thighs. But I always forget something that won’t come up until the third time I wear the suit: how secure the side-tabs on the trousers are or the narrowness of the ends of the sleeves.

So, I waited until now to give a decent review of my new suit. Broadly, the experience was positive. So many of my old suits are a little roomy in the waist (as I have lost weight in the past year) or never had their sleeves altered and are therefore a little long. Getting a new suit, therefore, that fits perfectly on the sleeves, the waist of the jacket and of the trousers is a pleasure.

The neck and shoulders fit well, as does the waistcoat – which is the hardest item to tailor. Unfortunately, the picture does not illustrate any of this particularly well as it is a stock image for the ASTF website. But one point is shown here: the collar of the jacket is forced away from the neck slightly by the collar of the waistcoat.

I enquired about this and was told that it is very tough to avoid when there is a collar on both the jacket and waistcoat. But then, my other waistcoats have a collar that stops short of the silk back, avoiding this problem. Perhaps a suggestion for collared waistcoats at ASTF in the future.

As mentioned previously, the material for ASTF suits is not amazing – roughly equivalent to a £250 or £300 suit on the high street. But then ASTF is great value that way, fitting much better for around the same price. And the company has started to introduce some more luxurious fabrics and one-offs.

I’m pretty satisfied with my suit, and I have two colleagues that are pretty happy with theirs – indeed, who are returning for second orders. If you’re looking to spend around that amount of money on the high street, don’t – go here instead.

Latest Review In Royal Wedding | Review Daddy

 After many years when Princess Diana die in car accident his son prince William will be got married and believing that this is one of the historical event happened in Britain.

There aren't many reasons to mourn the kind of Britain we had in the summer of 1981, an unhappy nation torn apart by inner-city race riots and handbagged by a hectoring Prime Minister. True, it was a summer that ignited collective rejoicing as well as police cars, but the fairytale wedding of Prince Charles to Lady Diana Spencer now looks less like a fairytale than one of Aesop's darker fables.
One authentic reason to miss the cut of Britain's jib in the summer of 1981, however, is the quality of one-off television drama we had back then. Between 1970 and 1984, Play for Today on BBC1 yielded more than 300 original dramas, written by such luminous talents as Alan Bleasdale, Dennis Potter and Jack Rosenthal, and directed by Ken Loach, Stephen Frears and Mike Leigh, among many other creative giants. Even when Play for Today finished, the baton was passed to the Screen One and Screen Two strands. So the dwindling of the BBC's resources for original one-off drama is little short of a cultural disaster, at least when you think of Play for Today, of the careers it enhanced and the audiences it enriched. It is one of the ironies of modern life that television drama unfolds in high-definition on the kind of vast, fabulous flat screens of which we could barely dream in 1981, and yet by comparison with then is woefully under-funded and under-prioritised.
All of which brings me to Royal Wedding, a one-off original drama that somehow made it along the juddering modern BBC production line to our vast, fabulous screens. It was written by Abi Morgan, the playwright whose most garlanded piece of television work was Sex Traffic, the extraordinarily powerful Channel 4 drama about Eastern European women sold into prostitution. And I suppose I should temper my rhapsodies about telly drama in the good old days of Play for Today by noting that the long list of fantastic writers and directors to whom the BBC gave work was conspicuously short of women. We might have had a woman running the country but there were scarcely any women writing for television. Yet even in these much reduced times for TV drama, just about every other set of credits seems to feature a female writer or director, or both.
Royal Wedding was set in a village in the Welsh Valleys on the day Charles and Di embarked on their ill-starred marriage, and starred Jodie Whittaker as Linda Caddock, a factory worker married to Johnny (Darren Boyd), a feckless musician, and having an affair with her boss, Alan (Alun Raglan). Some of the previewers reckoned that the Valleys accents were a little dodgy, but they seemed spot-on to me. Besides, one of my children wandered in halfway through wondering if we were watching Gavin & Stacey, which seems testament enough.
Whatever, I don't come from Wales so I shouldn't comment on the vowels, but I do come from 1981 – my last year of teenage – so I can say with authority that the period detail was irreproachable. "It looks like another world," remarked my wife, and indeed it did, a world we could hardly believe we ever inhabited unironically. Still, at least she never went into a hairdresser's and asked for a "Lady Diana" – it was her shaggy-perm era – but tens of thousands of women did, and Royal Wedding sent them all up with a Lady Di-lookalike contest, entered by Alan's charmless wife, Sherry (Sarah Hadland), in full wedding dress.
For all the sparks of comedy, though, Royal Wedding was overwhelmingly downbeat, a tale of hope suffocated by hopelessness. This applied on many levels, from Thatcher's free-market economics closing the factory to Johnny's failure as a musician and even as a suicide, but most notably it ran like a seam of Welsh coal through the story of Linda, who yearned to escape her gloomy life and loser of a husband but gradually realised that Alan wasn't the man to lead her to the promised land. She asked whether they could head for America or perhaps India when they ran away together that night; he suggested Shropshire. And in the end, you knew that she would be forced to divert her aspirations for herself towards her teenage daughter Tammy (Gwyneth Keyworth), like so many other mothers trapped by their circumstances.
Into all this was woven the coverage of Charles and Diana's big day, which loomed large and obvious – at times a little too large and too obvious – as a metaphor for the death of idealism; not that anyone predicted it then, except for Linda's non-conformist friend Bev (Rebekah Staton), who wore a "Don't Do It Di" T-shirt. The thing started with Diana telling a TV interviewer that Charles was "pretty amazing"; it ended with some footage of her sitting by his side looking unutterably unhappy. Morgan's underlying message seemed to be that men are unreliable bastards, and as I recall, the male of the species didn't emerge too well from Sex Traffic, either.

How do you pick the best suit for you?

Sometimes there's have question about choosing products just for example suits.Let me allow to give you some idea on picking suits Here it is.

1. You need at least one fantastic suit in your wardrobe.

If you don’t have much money then probably the one item to make a large one off investment in is your jacket. Don’t feel shy spending at least $500 for a great Fashion Suits – even more if you can afford it. Then substitute it with a couple more light-weight suits and jackets in the $200-$400 range to help mix things up.

2. Always make sure your suits and shirts fit well around the collar.

Don’t buy oversized collars, they come across as slack and lazy. And too tight, well, we all need to breathe now don’t we??

3. Match the suit to your lifestyle

Some men can easily mix patterns, suits, stripes, loud pocket kerchiefs, silky shiny materials, hats, tophats, and blinged up cufflinks. Some cannot!! It’s important to find the style that suits your personality, fits your career (bling in a conservative law firm certainly won’t go down that well!) and helps you ease forward in the game of life.

4. Accessorise!

Ties are the one accessory for men that can really be personalised and allow you to express yourself and add some color and diversity. Ties can be suited up or dressed down with jeans and a white shirt (open top button and loose knot). Wander into second stores to dig up some classic and vivid ties with vibe and spirit, and perhaps spend a bit more on some nice new (perhaps black or red) versatile ties.


"And final Find the right fit for your body If you a big guy,If you’re tall and lean or If you’re slight and shorter than average."
