    32:43 "In my experience you just cannot produce, any quality suit for $200 in retail price, it’s just not possible"

    I’m wondering if short sleeve dress shirts are appropriately for hot weather….



  19. Flow State on May 12, 2021 at 5:15 pm

    In summary: If you didn’t buy it from me, a vintage shop, or have it made custom, it sucks!



  20. Eadric Ricmund on May 12, 2021 at 5:16 pm

    Hugo Boss suits are somewhat on and off. My first two suits are from Hugo (got it from outlet so not paying full price for them). One of it is a Navy blue suit and the cloth quality is so bad on that the suit got really torn to shreds within the first year. The second one is a grey suit that looks more classic and it have Super 120 fabric. I wear that one just as much as the Navy blue and that suit I have been wearing 3 years now and its still in excellent condition.



  21. Fred Vima on May 12, 2021 at 5:18 pm

    what do you think of supreme’s box logo t shirts

    If you don’t know they feel like Walmart shirts with the word supreme on them, and did I mention they can cost almost $800

  25. David Gibson on May 12, 2021 at 5:18 pm

    IS PAUL FREDRICK WHITE DRESS SHIRTS ANY GOOD?



  26. KampKarl on May 12, 2021 at 5:19 pm

    Eton is one of my go too brand but most of there shirts are under 150 dollars but maybe that’s because i buy them in Sweden.



  27. Faheem Zia on May 12, 2021 at 5:19 pm

  29. Kevin P. on May 12, 2021 at 5:21 pm

    Is Fort Belvedere worth its price?



  30. Heldane Urbanus on May 12, 2021 at 5:22 pm

    I am beyond astonished that you’ve heard of Galliardi. Sadly much of your suit advice is a non-started. It gets pretty warm down here. I’m very grateful you mentioned Neopolitan brands tailor lighter, more summery suits. Definitely something to look into.



  31. ock rent on May 12, 2021 at 5:23 pm

    is ralph lauren shirt worth it or a rip off ? thx



  32. doctorx0079 on May 12, 2021 at 5:26 pm

  34. drifter grey on May 12, 2021 at 5:28 pm

    I have not found a better fitting/performing shirt than Eton…wish there was a cheaper alternative, but I haven’t found it yet.



  35. Manny’s Reef on May 12, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    Next Q&A, what are the best show brands for under $800?



  36. Nicholas Hawkins on May 12, 2021 at 5:33 pm

    The strong air acutely trick because lathe serologically reject by a observant white. evasive, zippy pasta



  37. Atlantis on May 12, 2021 at 5:36 pm

    I cannot ever understand how someone is capable of buying and wearing used shoes… it’s like buying and wearing used underwear…



  38. roger8654 on May 12, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    I always knew Paul Evans was overrated. Thomas Bird is a new company and it’s good quality.



  39. Qaz Qwertyqaz on May 12, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    Any thoughts on LBM 1911?



  40. Bob Whyte on May 12, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    How safe is your shop for credit card sales. We live in another country. We have a retail service in the USA. so no worries there. I’m worried about fraud. Any thoughts



  41. OlorosGaming on May 12, 2021 at 5:40 pm

    One thing that I find inconsistent about Raphael’s opinions is – on the one hand – he looks down on MTM companies and online retailers such as Indochino and Suit Supply because they could not fit his "unusual body" – while simultaneously advocating for higher quality vintage or pre-owned suit. Just because the suit is higher quality, does not mean that the fit itself is going to be better. Yes, obviously there are comfort advantages to buying quality garments, especially suits. But the gripe about MTM that Raphael makes is that the suits do not fit him properly. A higher quality, hand stitched suit bought pre-owned will still have the issues with fit – probably more than MTM because the suit was designed and tailored for someone else.



  42. Mr Johnny Drinkard on May 12, 2021 at 5:41 pm

    What are best in walking canes and stick.



  43. tomson thomas on May 12, 2021 at 5:43 pm

    Hey sir ,
    Hope you doing well.
    Just had a few quetions jumbled in my mind. I mean ofcourse its about a suits, i really wanted to know which brand can i trust with MTM suits in contrast to fitting and ofcourse good quality fabric. I have brooks brothers in my mind, but i really appreciate your thoughts in prospective of brand.
    And also wanted to know where do you buy your suits, is it MTM or bespoke and is it from a brand or a tailor.
    Ill be looking forward for your reply



  44. Reaper Skull on May 12, 2021 at 5:43 pm

  45. Deyon Wilson on May 12, 2021 at 5:45 pm

  46. peter littlehorse on May 12, 2021 at 5:45 pm

    Best quality clothing = Tilley Endurables.



  47. Adam Seidel on May 12, 2021 at 5:46 pm

    That moment when you realize you’re in the consistent customer base of both Brooks Brothers and Allen Edmonds and you’re kind of a square… and you don’t really care.



  48. Monica Gambino on May 12, 2021 at 5:48 pm
