Is it worth it! In Worth It: Lifestyle, a spin off of BuzzFeed’🤬 series Worth It, host Steven Lim and his buddies embark on a new adventure, setting out to try different experiences at three different price points: affordable, middle tier, and luxury--from airplane seats to cars to videos games. At the end of the episode, the gang decides which experience is the most “worth it” at its given price.

    Any suit you can get tailored is a good suit.

    🤬 dont know how to rock suits. I wear suits 5 days a week, my 🤬 don't cost an arm and a leg but I have great tailor who can take a $400 suit and make it look like a $4000 suit. If you saw my suits you'd prolly think my 🤬 is 5k+ Brioni, Versace 🤬 but nah. What most people don't understand is that when you buy a suit you should take it to a tailor to get it properly fitted to your body, it's aalll about the fit. I've been at this a long time, I got suits in all types of colours too. I know my 🤬 .

    Also make sure your shirts look right and are ironed and if you dont have the time just buy the non-iron joints and what get you a shirt stay (my military 🤬 understand). Ties is also a big component, because the right or wrong tie or colour way can make or break a suit. The other major part is the fabric - this takes a bit of effort to understand but that's where your tailor comes into play.

    Cats gotta understand you can't wear jays and trainers everywhere. You can't rock jeans and Nikes to the dinner party man. You gotta know when to suit and tie up.

    Funny you mention tailors....took my 🤬 to a recommended tailor...the guy 🤬 up the pants on a brand new suit...the 🤬 cut them like 4 inches to short and didnt leave material inside the leg to let them out any...had to talk the store into letting me buy just the pants again

    Do your homework, don't bring your 🤬 to a tailor at a department store or at a dry cleaners. Also make sure the suit you bring them isn't a cheap crusty box ass suit cuz no good tailor can fix that. Bring it to a notable tailor somewhere down town in your city or from the fashion district. Trying to find a good tailor is like a conductor trying to find a good soloist or a rapper trying to find the right producer. Interview these 🤬 , ask them how long they been at it, do they have any of their works up on a mannequin, what's their philosophy ? What would they recommend and try on a suit in front of them. Maybe you didn't give them clear instructions or that tailor wasn't well seasoned.

    Most people go to the business district in their city but those guys rely on "experience" and cut every suit the same. Take your 🤬 to the fashion district there and get a trendy cat to tailor your suits. You'll likely save on money and have a well trimmed suit fitting to your body.

    And by cheap suit I dont mean in terms of price I mean in terms of quality and shape.

    I think the problem was the tailor is too seasoned....he was like an 80 year old who has been around forever but i think hes losing his touch

    Man, when I was overseas cats were getting suits made left and right, they'd measure you up and you came back later to get your suit. But this was in the early 90's when cat's wore suits on the regular
