10/25/2012- These guys absolutely fucking nailed it! It is hard to believe I bought a suit online that looks this ridiculously good on me, but the wedding pictures don’t lie. My Cool Grey 3-piece arrived on-time and fit exceedingly well right out of the box, based off measurements I supplied with the help of a friend and the videos on their site. They offer a $75 credit in case you need an alteration after you receive it, which I did not need since all I did was steam the shipping wrinkles out, slip into it, and roll up to my wedding looking like a goddamn BOSS.
4/15/2013- Ladies – I was having a tough time thinking about what to get for my boyfriend for his 30th birthday. Then it dawned on me: what guy doesn’t need and want a custom made suit?
I was on a tight time crunch, so I emailed and set up a walk-in fitting appointment with their stylist, Jay. He met with my boyfriend and measured him. Of course, I chose the suit color, lining, etc…you can even add a custom inscription for the suit jacket, up to certain character limit.
8/27/2012- When it comes to Made-to-Measure, the guys at Black Lapel have it down to an art. I stumbled onto their website via an online reviewer. After being disappointed time and time again with a different Made-to-Measure company and how specific the reviewer was, I figured why not.
Over the past 4 years I have reviewed Black Lapel twice; I’ve also commissioned a few things on the side that I haven’t written about. Black Lapel was even one of the first brands that I reviewed on The Fine Young Gentleman so it has been nice to seem them build their business over the past four years.
