Thanks! I just wanted to try proper cloth out, I have most of my MTM shirts from Herrainpukimo and Shirtonomy. Even with taxes and shipping to Europe, the proper cloth shirts were about 90e per shirt which is about the same as the other brands. I prefer the fabric of the other brands, though, proper cloth has very thick oxfords and I tend to sweat a lot.

The club collar blouse (shirt?) is nice, but if you look at trad womenswear you'll see that not only the blouse but the jumper is typically tucked. With a higher-waist skirt, this gives really nice proportions which are admittedly "vintage-style" but timeless in that they look great.

For slim fit and trying stuff, Uniqlo is probably your best bet. They don't have a lot of good cloth and so on but the quality is okay for the price. Just be aware that actually decent fabrics do make a difference, e.g. the high-wale slim cords Uniqlo sells are basically a different kind of trouser than 6- or 8-wale heavy cord high-rise bags with turnups.

>Dressing preppy
These are just ironic sayings, or used as an insult by the lower class.
>"Wow your really dressed up, got a date?"
No. I don't dress preppy, I am Preppy. I am a refined Man/Woman, I have taste in good quality clothes and have a higher pursuit of intellectual things.

Preps are seen as the defacto "normie" (or symbol of the upper class), I just watched this movie "Ready Player One", and as an example, this screenshot, is of the characters who are hired by the big corporation as new graduates from good schools to solve this large problem in the movie. Look at how their characters are dressed.

Then if you watch the movie, the opposite to this is the "rebel", characters (the proles), they are dressed in army field surplus jackets, and boots, like Punk.

As many other anons have said. This is just a framework. Make it your own otherwise you'll end up looking like a larp.

Depends on brand, quality, fit and how you style it. A well-fitting Lacoste or Ralph Lauren polo with all cotton cuffed khakis and penny loafers will look preppy, while an ill-fitting shiny polyester polo with no logo or a an athletic brand logo (Nike, Under Armor, etc) with shitty polyester khakis and cheap running shoes or crappy rockport loafers will just look dorky.

I am considering buying one, but the shoulders are like pic related, with my shoulder bones falling short from the actual bend of the suit.

Higher-end (400+) suitsupply is pretty good for the money. Make sure they are made in Europe and have full canvas. These are primarily italian-styled suits, though, in both Milanese and napolitan style, which is not very prep.
Depending on your budget, it may be better for you to go for made to measure($800+) or bespoke ($3000+).
I am very hesitant in recommending expensive ready to wear suits such as j press and ermenegildo zeugma because the other 2 methods have a much better value proposition compared to the fit. They may have some pretty awesome fabrics, specially in the case of zeugma, which is one of the world’s largest fabric manufacturers.

Excellent post. I will add though that due to being Italian and also because of the demands of luxury-tier fast fashion, a lot of Ermenegildo Zegna fabrics are thin and not hard wearing. Some are downright underdone. They *can* make really great fabric but often don't because it's not what's ordered (or in demand, a lot of people just don't know how to discern good cloth and end up preferring things that are not good). Because Zegna gained an immense reputation as a good clothmaker, now there is a huge incentive to cut corners on what you order from them so you can say that you're using a genuine Zegna textile, without having to pay for what the good shit would cost.

Well, there is not much reason to buy their suits, then. Considering that they can cost well into the bespoke, they are downright inferior to a made to measure suit where you can pick your fabric, as i assumed they reserved some fine cloth for their suits.
I guess that settles it, then. €800 is the cost ceiling for ready to wear suits, anything over that will be downright inferior to mtm.

For anyone just trying to experiment with the style, I think the best thing is to actually go into a store, try things on, get a few items on sale so you have options. As opposed to blowing that same amount on one premium item that you find on the net, which may or may not fit well.
