Re: Starting a suit wardrobe
I recently had my measurements done at Mens Wearhouse (obviously), so I suppose that next time I go in there to pick up my suit I could ask them to provide me with my measurements. Hopefully they could print something off for me.
This brings me to another question... I had to get a specific suit from them because I'm in a bridal party that is booked through them. I went in to the store, they took my measurements and then had to order the suit because they were out of stock of it at that location. I went back in a week later to try it on for tailoring and the thing must have had a 28 waist on it (I'm a 32 at best). I could barely get the pants on and he said they would take it out for me no problem, but the alterations ended up costing slightly more than originally estimated. Is this normal practice? Why wouldn't they order a suit with my correct waist size? Is it a good idea to take a waist out that much? The whole thing just struck me as odd.
