Madison Two-Button 1818 Suit
Great suit, great value!
For my first suit from BB, going conservative was a good choice. The Madison 1818 is the full, original cut (from what I was told) by BB. I got the navy; clearly a classic. I went with this particular one (the double button) because it came with the pleated pants. The tailor at my BB shop did a great job finalizing the suit to make it fit me perfectly. If I knew any better, I would have requested the tailor for functional sleeve buttons. In terms of the fabric, the texture and look didn't stand out as high quality wool, but it didn't say it was a blend of cheap wool. I think the suit is of great value. Something like this from a European brand would cost almost 2~3 times. If you are looking for a classic, quality suit; or if for a first time BB suit--like myself, I'd recommend starting from the 1818 Madison line.

Superior material, stunning appearance, and comfortable fit,
in spite of my not entirely Olympian physique. It's why it's my 5th Madison suit in less than a year.

Solid (Pen-Stripe) Suit
The suit is excellent, fit/value/appearance. Even better was the service I received.
