DopperDandy: Richard Lim has made 3 suits and 2 sports coats for me. All of very good quality - and considering the price, and all around excellent value. Also had suits made all of the world. I think I've learned a thing or two about this. Your statement therefore is not just wrong, but deeply, irredeemably ignorant. Mr. Lim is no Mickey Mouse. And you are no Dapper Dandy. Coolal was generous in his assessment.
Arnaud, I'm not surprised that you've comissioned suits from Mr. Lim. That's what I would expect from a witless classless man that you've proven yourself to be. Where have you had your suits made? I'll glady call Anderson & Sheppard and ask them to release my order forms for you to see. Can you do the same? Frankly, Mr. Lim is a fraud. He states that he has made suits for Brad Pitt, I happen to know Mr. Pitt's stylist and she says Mr. Pitt doesn't even know who Richard Lim is. Infact, Mr. Pitt wears nothing less than Tom Ford. As I've stated before, you are really not well versed on the subject at hand so I suggest you stick to dressing like a jester and leave the sartorial conversations to real men.
Coolal, look, I understand that it' tough for young men to find affordable bespoke in L.A. especally in this economy. And I sympathize with your situation. I just think you should be extra careful with guy's like Lim. They lure you in with low prices and then hit you with all these hidden charges. Just be careful.
GBR, if you judge a man's sartorial sense by his posts on a website then I really feel sorry for you.
As for the rest of the comments, I've had several suits made and Anderson & Sheppard and not once have they put plastic buttons on any of the items I've ordered.
