This video features a Savoy Square suit that I thrifted for only $15! It's a double breasted 4 - 2 button wool suit with peak lapels, pleated pants, and no cuffs. It's kind of an interesting suit, and other than the waist being too tight, it fits me like it's already been tailored for me! I do a simple alteration in this video to let out the slacks about 2-1/4".
