I own two of the TM Lewin suits and am very pleased with them. For the price, they are an incredible value. The wool is quite soft for super 100's. They are not fully canvassed but still have a smooth appearance. I also like the side vents and the ticket pocket. I think you will be quite pleased for a $400 suit.
Yes, I also own one CT suit. It's ok, but as you say, the fabric is rather coarse. And when they aren't on sale, they are actually quite expensive for what they are. Lewin's is definitely better.quote:Originally posted by billiebob
Have you compared the Lewin fabric directly with Tyrwhitt's? The CT fabric is really rough and the fusing stiff and thick. I take it Lewin is better on all these counts: Fabric and softness of fused chest?
As far as the suit sizing go, its tough to say, like as for myself i wear a 39 S in Brooks Brothers, a 40 S in Lauren, and between a 38s and 40 S in JOS a Banks, a 40 S in TM Lewin pretty fairly well, not too much shoulder comfortable, actually i am surprised and relieved that it fit as well as it did...the sleeves are a little long but i expected that.....quote:Originally posted by gmac
How are the trousers cut if not flat front?
Single pleat? Double? Are they reltively slim fitting despite not being flat front?
I don't personally like flat front trousers as I find they can be very constricting.
How are the suits sized? There has been a lot of comment about going up a size in lewin shirts - any comparable adjustment required for the suits?
I'll try and post some pics once i get it back from the tailors, had to shorten the sleeves and the pant length...quote:Originally posted by AHS
Ralph, are you going to post photos? I would be curious to see as I am thinking about ordering the lewin gray flannel suit.
I recently received 4 lewin shirts. I am very happy with them.
