Sorry if this is the wrong thread (no pun intended), but I couldn’t find the metrosexual section.
Now my preferred dress up is a sarong, Thai fishing pants or Billy Jack if I’m heading out, but the new gig requires the occasional appearance in a suit. I’ve had one made before in Vietnam - nice Mandarin collar, which I prefer since I hate ties with a vengeance, however, I’ll probably have to go the full tie crappery, maybe even cuff links, etc, the full wanker as it were. Or do I need to? Could I not buck the trend of the wankers around me and try something more my own style? If so, suggestions advise graciously accepted.
But my real question is, what’s the best way to get a suit? I don’t want to spend oodles. I live in HK and they make them here, I also frequently visit Thailand and they do them there also. But I have heard good and bad about getting them made and often wondered if it wasn’t just a load of pretentious crap. Additionally, I heard the best way to get them made is hand them an expensive suit you bought so they can replicate another xx number of them.
There are good suits off the rack in Bangkok, and I do have a jacket that is the envy of many who see it that I picked up for around NT$1,000 at a Robinsons (department store chain in Thailand) near the old airport in Bangkok.
All suggestions and advice gratefully accepted.
