$399 Suit Vs. $7,900 Suit

– What’s up Evan? – Sup. – You like fashion right? – I do. – Then why do you always look so bad? (chuckles) I’m just kidding. – Bad meaning bad, or bad meaning good? – It’s the one that you want it to be. – Bad. – Will you join me on my suit shopping extravaganza? – Suit. – We’re going New York. That’s not how you get there. We gotta get on a plane. It’s not that, it’s actually that way. – Nope I’m going. – Time to shop til we drop. – Hi. – Oh. (laughs) New York, fashion capital of the United States. – Yes sir. – Today on worth the lifestyle, we’re gonna try three different suit experiences that through drastically different price points and find out which one is the most worth it at it’s price. Worth it. – Suits never go out of style. Every man needs a suit. – And some women too. The first place we’re going to is a place called Suit Supply you’re gonna help me buy a suit. – Okay, what about me? – I mean you can have one too. – Suit up. (cool music) – My name is Nish De Gruiter, I’m the Vice President of Suit Supply USA, we have jackets, casual pants, shirts, all the furnishings.

– So what makes a good suit a good suit? – It should be fit well, it’s all about the interior, if you see people the name boxy suit, it still look very square because the interior is glued on the inside. If you see a proper made suit, breast pocket has a round shape to it, shoulder is a little slim it’s softer, our fabric are from high end Italian mills, Zenya, Barberis, Lo Pia, different colors, show the different price points, so the blue line is opening price point at 399, Suit Supply is a vertically integrative company. A wholesaler or retailer, we cut all those middle men out that’s why we can have a much more attainable price point. There’s always something that we can fit you in for example Havana fit works I think for your broad shoulders well.

– Is that, that’s for me right? – Yeah, (laughs) – We have a tailor who does alterations while you wait. – We have a tailor in the store? – Yes, like an open kitchen. – I like that you can walk in and walk out with a suit the same day. – To determine your size, chest size 40, shirt size 15 and 3/4s. – You have a suit here ready based on those three measurements. – From size 30 to regular all the way through 52 long we have in stock, ready to go.

(groovy music) – Alright come out here Evan, let’s see, oh. – This particular suit, is Havana suit, works well for your broad shoulders, smaller waist. This is really business something more formal, soft shoulder, the sleeve length is perfect here you show just the right amount of cuff, we have a high arm hole, that’s really Italian style. Italians like to hug. – I like to hug. I like to hug Steven. – You want to do a hug test? (laughs) – Hug test. – Let’s do a hug test. – Hug approved. I feel dangerous, – Dangerous? – Yeah, I feel like I might go somewhere and spend all my money. (laughs) – You look pretty fire but it’s my turn. – I think you should go a little more casual, I would go for charcoal gray. – Charcoal gray? – Charcoal gray will be a great color for your skin complexion, will work well with your hair. – Yes. – I will take a 36 suit, I will go for a 14 and 3/4s shirt. – So I’m 36 and you’re 40.

– 40 chest and 30 in the waist. – We need to advertise how much more buff Evan is than I am. (laughs) (smooth music) Oh ho, – This is a great outfit, it should be louder than your personality. – Oh wow, this is very breathable. Even though this is more casual, it’s more different its more unique. – Right. – And I love that about it. – You’re still wearing a suit and it’s very casual, you don’t go out of your comfort zone. – This is amazing, it’s hard to express how I feel right now. I feel like, you need to start treating me serious now. No more of your dumb hugs. This is all business. Pizza time. I think the crazy thing about that suit was how comfortable it was. – The suit jacket Nish gave me, I don’t think I have to alter it. – You’ve never had that kind of suit off the rack fit you so well. – Yeah. – Suit fact, the term bespoke, comes from the 1600s people would go into tailor shops, they’d have the ask for the fabric that was been spoken for that’s where bespoke came from.

That’s what fashion is though, pretty much copying people that look good. – Mm-hmm, it’s like a little bit of word play there. – Word play is more like when you say like, yo my name is Steven and I like to go to. – I’m Evan I come down from heaven. (laughs) – What? Suit number two, are you ready for this? – I’m actually most excited about this. We’ve been prepping ourselves to get fully suited – From an e-commerce site. We used a company called Articles of Style. Apparently this place is legit. – I’m Evan, I come from heaven. – Let’s go to 7Eleven, where you actually came from. (smooth music) – I’m Dan Trepanier, I’m the CEO and creative director. – Hi I’m Will Howe, I’m the COO of Articles of Style. – Articles of style is online luxury men’s wear brands a lot of guys out there are getting very mediocre frustrating experiences with custom e-commerce. Meanwhile in bespoke world, guys are thrilled so can’t we offer a service instead of just an algorithm where you measure yourself. – How are you making these suits? – Everything is made from scratch, based on that one client.

We found Southwyck, the oldest tailoring factory in America. At the factory what you’ll see for example in addition to a lot of other things is a digital pattern making. Printing your pattern. It’s laser cutting the fabric, then basting the garments together for assembly, so setting sleeves, they’re removing the base stitching when the garments done, they measure it to make sure it’s exactly what we ordered. And if it’s more than an eighth of an inch off, we have to redo it. So you fill out your physical profile on our website, we then figure out your estimated measurements, cut a custom try on just for you and send you that, take pictures in the try ons, upload them to your account, you have an opportunity to write feedback so you guys write a novel and in there.

– That’s gonna be this guy right here. – I’m gonna write a novel in there. – Right, I mean you gave us specific measurements. – Super detailed feedback. – That’s great, you know what you want, you know. You want for example, a very small leg hole which isn’t uncommon. – Gotta be specific right? – Yeah. (laughs) – I don’t even know what a leg hole is. – It’s the circumference at the very bottom of the pants. – It’s called the opening. – Gotcha. Okay. – If you’re telling us nothing, you’re trusting us for the expertise and if you’re telling us a ton that makes our job easier because we know how to cut the garment to your preference already. – This is the moment of truth. – Should we try ’em on? – If you guys get this right, I’m coming back to the store, (laughs) (smooth music) alright here we go. Oh shoot.

I really don’t recognize myself right now. This thing is just, throwing me off right here. This has never seen the sun. – This is a luxury fabric, it’s linen and silk, primarily silk actually, you’re a really slim guy right, so you probably often have really big shoulders on your jackets and we cut a really high arm hole, so if you have a slim biceps, that makes a big difference. – I have toned biceps. (laughs) – That’s slim. What’s really driving the comfort of the jacket is the no shoulder pads at all, so it’s really a shirt shoulder. And it’s really lightweight construction to your chest, so it’s really just like something you can throw on, and the trouser you picked was a cotton cashmere blend, so it’s really, really soft fabric as well. – Is there a name I can, an alter ego I can have when I wear this? Steven, Steve! – Steve. – Steve.

– Yo Steve is out. – Hug test. (laughs) hug approved. – It’s your turn. – Let’s go. – You’re not gonna look as good as me. – Let’s go. (groovy music) Oh wow. First of all, got the 12 inches, right length, shoulder width, everything fits perfectly. – You’re a harder fit than Steven is, mainly because you’re really big in the shoulders, strong chest, but really narrow waist, you’re wearing like a 31, 32 pant and like a 41, 42 jacket. Which is a 10 inch drop, that’s impressive. – I work hard for it. (laughs) – So you really benefit from the unpadded shoulder because you already got all this meat up here, you can’t really buy a suit off the rack so a guy like you is extra blown away.

– What do you think Steven? What do you think Steve? (laughs) – I mean, you look fine. (laughs) (fun music) – Yeah, hug approved. (smooth music) – Cut, cut, next place. (laughs) what is it with you and the 12 inch leg whole man? – You gotta know what you want when it comes to suits. – It’s true, from never having met me, to getting a suit that fit that perfectly, I was pretty amazed. – That’s probably the most impressive part about Articles of Style. – Yeah. – Hands down. Suit fact. – Oh my god. Did you know men have buttons on the right side and women have buttons on the left side. So the theory goes that men had to go to battle and wars so they had to be able to suit up very quickly and most people are right handed.

For women the thought is that women were wealthier so people would help them put it on, so you’d actually have it backwards ’cause you know the person helping you would, – I see. – Be right handed and could do the other side. – But if you’re a right handed woman and you’re a left handed man (laughs) you’re in trouble. – In battle, you’re screwed. We’re going to gentlemen by the name of Leonard Logsdail. We started from a retail store, and then we went down to a smaller e-commerce site and now we’re down to one man. – So we’re trimming down the number of people we have.

– Interesting yeah. – It is interesting. – The more you spend the less people who work on it. Hmm. – Hmm. (soft music) – My name’s Leonard Logsdail. I’m a tailor here in New York City with my son Leonard, he’s been working with me for about four years and he’s learning the trade from me and today we’re going to talk about production of a handmade suit and measure you for one as well. – Amazing. It’s me by the way. – It’s all you man. – If you like we can do a comparison between a good body and a bad body. (laughs) – You hear that. – From a tailoring point of view, people will look at him and say well he’s got a great body but from my point of view it’s actually quit difficult, the shoulders a 40, it’s about 3/4 of an inch lower on the right hand side, its understanding the nuances of the body and then being able to interpret that from a plain piece of brown paper when I construct the paper pattern.

– What is bespoke, what is a bespoke tailor do. – When you get buy something off the rack it’s made for everybody and no one in particular. We do it completely the other way around. I’ve got 45 years of experience of understanding men’s bodies, many clients say to me that I understand their bodies more than their wives do. Because when you come in three months later I can tell if you’ve put on a couple of pounds or taken a couple of pounds off. – We make the suites ourselves on site, garments cut here, our jacket maker makes about two a week. It takes about 60 or 70 hours of hand work put into it. – Very labor intensive. – And how did you guys get to where you are now? – Well I think it’s the heart that goes into it.

I built up a business in London. I moved out here in 1991. There were probably about 50 or 60 old Italian fabulous tailors in the United States have all died off. – So this suit you made right here. – I did yeah, I made all those clothes for all the guys from Wolf of Wall Street. – No way. – One of the reasons that I get the movie work from the tailors here is because if you want something 1970s with a flared pair of trousers and big pockets I can do that for you. – How much is a suit that you make and then what defines the cost of that? – The skill of moving and stretching and shrinking and feeling the fabric in your fingers takes a long time and when you’re charging a lot for a suit I’m not gonna do it until you’re ready for it, a two piece suit starts at 7900 dollars. Probably the lowest quality we make is a super 120s with cashmere and then we move on up from there to a Vicuna suit which probably cost about 30,000 dollars ’cause the cloth is very rare.

– They found a way to shear it and they stay alive. – I want a suit, maybe for my wedding? – We can do that for you. – Okay so I have not proposed to her yet, but I’m thinking about it. – Well she might hear it now so. – She will hear it. – So are you gonna get married on the west coast, the east coast? What time of year? Are you more of a conservative type of person or do you want something that’s got a little bit of oomph to it? (laughs) – I hadn’t even thought about that. – We need to know this because if you’re gonna get married in Alaska in the winter, I can’t show you some of these fabrics. – Gotcha, I like a little bit of flair yeah. – So this is a Super 130s and it’s beautiful. – That’s great. – And it’s beautiful, feel the fabric so that means it’s going to be comfortable to wear, now we have to decide what style of suit you want. Do you like more of the modern style, like a shorter jacket and a tight pair of pants? – I would love to go with what you’re advising.

– So we’ll go two buttons on the front. The pink lapel means you thought about pants, we’re gonna make them with no pleats. You use your back pockets? – I do, and I heard it’s bad for your back to put a wallet in your back pocket. – If you’ve got a lot of money in it yeah. (laughs) and then we’ll start the measurements and the body figurations. 38 and a half. – 38 and a half yeah that’s what I’m talking about Evan, got some gains. – And we’ll cut the suit out after that. – How long will it take, you said at least three fittings? – Depends, sometimes if I do my job correctly, the first time we could do it in one, sometimes I need two, sometimes I need three but I will not let the suit go out the door until I’m happy with it.

My plan is for Ying to look at you on her wedding day and really decide that you’re the one. (elegant music) – Alright man. That. Wow, dude that looks so good. I’m not used to this. This navy color looks really really good on you. You should start wearing this everyday actually so I can take you seriously. (laughs) – Dude it looks so clean, okay. And my favorite part of this suit, the back of it is like perfectly shaped for my back.

I look like a body builder. – Oh wow, yeah. I see you. – I see you. I’m used to feeling fabric pull at me in certain places. I don’t feel that here. Oh yeah, see that. The insides transcription, see this phrase, it’s from my mom. I don’t know how to describe this any more man it’s so, it’s so perfect. – A perfect suit is when I’m working with a client and I look in the mirror and I see the look on his face is when you’re happy when you walk out the door.

(playful music) – Hug approved. Thank you for taking me shopping, why did just grab your bicep? (laughs) Evan Ghang, which suit is the most worth it at it’s price for you. – Suit Supply is probably my go to place when I want to buy suits. – If you need a suit tomorrow, that will fit you very nicely, Suit Supply, and it’ll look great. – But I have to say it’s the Articles of Style.

They found that middle ground where everything just meets perfectly and the fact that I’ve never met them before and they got the suits down perfectly that’s already a winner for me honestly. – I thought I was gonna go with Articles of Style, I guess I’m a fancy boy ’cause I’m going with Leonard Logsdail. – What? – He doesn’t cut corners, well he does on suits. Ha ha ha ha. It’s not about the money, it’s not about the time, it’s not about anything, it’s about getting the product correct and I look up to people like that. – You looked really, really good in that suit. – Alex, who was your Worth It winner? I must have looked really good in that suit. – This guy. – That wraps it up for our season two of Worth it Lifestyle. Thank you guys for watching, it’s like because of you guys watching now we can make these videos so we out. – Peace. – Can I do one more thing? So in the first location that we did for this video at Suit Supply, we were told that of this thing called a hug test, I’m just gonna give you a hug.

– Come on in. – Hug approved .

My House Tour in Japan

*Knocking Hey, you must be here for my new home tour! I just wanted to start off by saying this is an unofficial tour because not everything is done yet Shelves are still bare, things need to be delivered still. Little bits and bobs here and there. But lets face it, I feel like a home is never completely done There’s always things you want to add in or change So I’m going to do it now because I want to get into Christmas mode ASAP and just decorate this place So I wanted to show you guys around before I do that Oh and one more thing, um, the house on the thumbnail of this video Isn’t my actual home. It’s sort of half clickbait half- “I want to keep living and not have my real home on the internet and my exact location address” So yeah, um… Without further a-do, I’m gonna show you around! Over here we have a huge shoe closet. It’s basically filled with shoes from the bottom to the top And then some areas have some random little things like stuff for Rosie, spare change, receipts for tax Rosie stuff, sunglasses that sort of thing.

But all these other ones are just completely filled with my boyfriend and I’s shoes. This is our main entrance light and we got it at one of those vintage light shops in Nakameguro Over here we have the mirror where I show you which outfit I’m wearing and what shade of Kylie Jenner lip kit I have on my lips that day Here we have our umbrellas. In here is the storage room for Winter Coats and Christmas decorations And then when you walk here, there’s a bathroom It’s gotten a itty bitty.. Sink here just that you can only basically fit your hands inside Towel here. Soap. One of those fancy Japanese electronic toilets that shoot water up your bum Gotta have that And that’s basically in here Let’s move on In here is the bedroom This our bed! And…

Over here we have a humidifier because it’s super dry and it lights up and bothers me at night So I put this mint package on there and then our TV This sort of goes out to a little terrace and then I’ve got my lamp here Bedside table Over here, we’ve got my boyfriend’s office Moving this way is the closet This is my closet. Um I have everything here organized in color coordination This area right here is my pajamas underwear, socks, bras Underneath is slippers. These I got at Nitori Which is like sort of a Japanese IKEA, I guess Inexpensive home-ware shop These are also from Nitori I have my jewelry in this one, glasses and scarves in this one and accessories And in this one I forget what I have – OH Hair accessories Over here, up here, I have my hats everything like that In this section I have bottoms and then here we have my denim Down here is Rosie’s closet sometimes and sometimes my workout wear area, go and lounge-wear clothes Moving on to this section, up here I’ve got handbags Here’s all my sweaters This is t-shirts, these are long-sleeve shirts, these are sweaters.

These I also got from Nitori Here I’ll link all the items in the description box to so you guys can see where I bought them easily But these are from Amazon. In here, I just have some denim that I don’t always wear and some other items I don’t always wear and Here I have Christmas sweaters and Christmas stuff. Which you guys will see very soon on my channel that I’m wearing it all my my Christmas videos. These are all jackets, hoodies This is my luggage where I store my suitcase. And then here is dresses This is Christmas gifts inside here, so I can keep them hidden away. Alright, Let’s move on to the bathroom this side of the closet is my boyfriend by the way I think it’s really balanced on how much I get versus what he gets I have more stuff In here is the laundry room bathroom Over here is my linen closet I’ve got all the bed sheets, towels, ironing stuff, laundry stuff.

Here is my lush bath bombs. And… Here is my like curling irons Dryer, straighteners, all those electronic products. This thing is pretty cool because you can pull this out to iron on so it kind of just hides away and then this is where we put our dirty clothes so it’s nice- nicely tucked away too Here is another storage shelf Up here is items that I don’t really need like parts to the vacuum Spare hair conditioner and shampoo, makeup products that I don’t always use that sort of thing that’s what’s in these I think this is for Christmas presents Here is my makeup area, this is where I keep some palettes which couldn’t fit in the drawers And this is my lip area like where I keep all of my lip products.

This is glosses And then I arrange them in color, so this is sort of Orangey tone. This is nudey pink This is red and then this is purples and more deep colors And then this makeup area here has my makeup brushes, this is concealers and foundations This is Powders In here I just put the clothes on you can be ironed here are some face towels and here is one of my favorite quotes It says, “Home is wherever I’m with you” it’s the lyrics from a summer lookbook that I filmed with my boyfriend and One of our favorite songs. I still haven’t got to put this in a frame yet Because it’s actually quite hard to find a simple white frame in Tokyo They all have either ones with many many photos or some elaborate frame or glass or something like that. I just want a simple white frame I didn’t think I was going to be able to find one so I just kind of stuck it here like this for now It’s still in its packaging.

Two sinks, so one for each of us Which is really good for us because I’m quite messy. This is his side of the … Vanity, I think its called, with his products. Here I have my hair stuff, nail products and my 100 step Korean skin process that He gave me. The rest is kind of random and messy so I won’t show you guys Through here is the shower room I think this is something that makes a Japanese home quite different from a western style home Because the bathroom area in the shower area are separated by a new room and a new door Where as in a western house the showers just like in the corner, but it’s in the same bathroom area This is completely separate.

This is my bath and shower area Right here is the bathtub which is controlled, the temperature everything is controlled here electronically so basically you can just push it and leave the room and then once it’s ready It’s going to play a song and then I can even turn it off from upstairs on the upstairs controllers Yeah, that’s pretty cool And it can regulate the temperature and keep it warm and everything like that and the water comes out of here instead of a faucet Which is kind of different. and over here is just basic shower stuff- shampoo, body wash, conditioner. And that is the shower room Alright, let’s head upstairs to the first floor So you go up here and then you come to this gate which keeps out small dogs, cats, children kindau or those things of tiny nature and then if you can get over this If you can get past the gate then you’re going to come to the stairs of death which you can slip through If you can get up the stairs of death and all the way up to the top You’ll get to my chamber or my office, but we’re going to get that later.

This is my ewok named Rosie Hello~ In here we have some balloons from my boyfriend’s birthday. Which have lasted like what two months now? Guess I could just keep them up and have them until his next birthday, then I can save money In here we have the electronics Tax stuff, photos… Over here is Rosie’s cupboard. She knows and she get a treat Do you want a treat? Can you show them how you sit? Sit~ Sit~ Good sit! OK! Like I mentioned before a lot of the shelves are still empty and bare I’m not sure what to do with them yet, but they will get filled later Here I just have a candle. A little bit of Christmas is creeping in right here with the poinsettia Here I have another quite empty shelf I’ve got my little plant here, which I got earlier that has sadly just passed away.

I just noticed I totally forgot to water it There’s no sunlight in here. Good quote on that. Speaking of good quotes, we’ve got this one inside here. Which I didn’t frame yet Um, but it says, “Stay hungry, Stay foolish” Which is a Steve Jobs quote. My boyfriend and I both really love Steve Jobs and love this quote so it seemed right to put here. Over here we’ve got a little bit of artwork from Dali. Which I also need to be framed or displayed somehow But, I just shoved it in here for now Right here, we have Rosie’s area her little bed, pee mat over here Toys, food, water… Here is our dining table The table part is from Bo Concept, One of those extending ones so we can extend when we have friends over *Whispers* Although we don’t have any friends These chairs are from IKEA and Moving up we have one of my favorite things in the house these lights which we got in Nakameguro on that Megurodori or it’s like a furniture street from this little vintage light shop I really love the filament in these light bulbs.

There you go, looks like that Okay, we’re going to the living room Here is our couch I opted for fabric this time which I feel is a lot more comfier Than leather and I went for white although it’s it’s quite a risk because it’s hard to keep clean Especially with this little creature And these are Rosie’s’ stairs because this is probably Rosie’s favorite area of the whole house You can almost always find her on here at snuggled up to these furry pillows These pillows I got at Franc Franc I’m not sure if I’m going to keep the red It’s like I said Christmas is almost here, so I went with red for now. And this is from IKEA This is from Franc Franc And then we’ve got this vintage looking lamp here from Journal Standard Here is our coffee table I ordered this on eBay And it came but it arrived with everything separate like just pieces of wood and you basically have to do it yourself and put it together and it was quite difficult I think it took my boyfriend three hours? A lot of elbow grease, if you know what I mean This plant is from Loft, which is kind of funny because it doesn’t have any soil.

Don’t really get it, just like this root Probably going to die too Here we have some books and magazines Back here is where we keep our TV converters, tissues, Xbox controller, that sort of thing just to hide all those Over here is our TV area gaming systems Xbox this old Nintendo system In here is games DVDs, and a whole lot of Christmas decorations And here’s some more empty shelves Moving into the kitchen My favorite part of the house is this island because it’s perfect for cooking and making cooking videos Here we have our sink Two faucets to our sink Which is so that you can wash things from every angle Um… Here we have that… And here we have all of our dishes~ cups, mugs, that sort of thing Here we have a really cool oven slash Microwave Slash many things in one.

We got this oven at Bic Camera Which is a big electronics shop here in Tokyo. It does so many things- it steams, it toasts, it microwaves It heats things up Now, I’m not fully sure how to work this thing, but I do know how to work the toaster part And it makes the perfect piece of toast! Are you hungry? The perfect piece of toast All right, what do you want on it? I’ve got peanut butter, jam… different jams or marmalade This one? Yeah! Alright. There you go! I’m just going to show you one drawer, my favorite drawer. This is my baking drawer where I keep all of my baking supplies And I really love this cupboard, my tea cupboard I’ve organized it from non caffeine teas to ones with caffeine and then you’ve got coffee and hot chocolate up here and stuff to put in teas up here These are my little spices.

I got these jars and labels at IKEA In this part we have a dishwasher Here is just some pots and pans This is a fish griller The stove~ Not sure what’s in here, basically nothing. We’ve got rice milk, soy milk, almond milk, all kinds of milk basically Drinks, pasta sauces and condiments I think we had a little bit of fruit and vegetables. Oh yeah, that’s Apples Here is a little balcony In here is the pantry Baking stuff, chia seeds oatmeal Breakfast stuff, these are drinks then these are can stuff like soups and that sort of thing Over here is my boyfriends section aka the area of death because he goes to work And I’m the one who ends up snacking on this all day while I’m editing Another bathroom Just another little sink and toilet and That’s it Alright. Let’s go to the final floor Watch your step Up here is my office area Now, I’m not going to show you guys around this because there’s a lot of little details that I want to talk about in this office area and not everything has arrived yet So I’m going to do a whole nother video just for this office area So I’ll show you guys this area soon probably after the holidays Over here, we have some chairs where we seat the people that we don’t want to eat with at the dinner table And here is another little terrace or top area Rosie~ where are you? Where are you? Rosie, look up! *laughing* Rosie~! And here’s just a storage area where I keep lighting and props for videos and then through here is the spare bedroom Aka Sharla’s bedroom for any family member who visits me We got a pull-out couch here that pulls out into a big bed and just random stuff because I’m not finished with this room yet.

This will probably be the last room I do later Alright, this concludes my unofficial home tour! Thanks for coming over! Oh, maybe you should stop by next month too! I’m going to be decorating this whole place up for Christmas and I make a mean hot chocolate! Drop me a comment in the description box if you want to come over again Alright, I will see you later.
