    I followed him for a while, have one of his books on my coffee table, and spent way too much on shoes and clothes I never wore
    He’s good, but there’s 1% of people out there who actually dress like him. The rest are larpers

      I listen to him both on the frog and english channel and I havent bought a single piece of clothing for the last 8years, everything I wear lost his colors, has holes, lost their shapes, etc

    He’s great at what he does but not all of his videos are very useful, as the other anons have pointed out. Great starting point for knowledge though.

          Is it the hair? I have this theory that hair length is conducive to suit flashiness. As long of course you’re attractive and in shape.

          • Anonymous says:

            That’s a funny theory. I don’t know what it is. Maybe it’s the hair, maybe it’s the fact that he’s French, or maybe it’s that he just always looks relaxed and at-ease regardless of how crazy his suit is.

            probably, can you name a bald dude who looks great in a suit?

        if you watch his videos and immediately go out and guy 5k worth of suits, shoes, shirts, etc. you will regret it. it takes time for people to 1) build up confidence to dress like this in today’s world and just because you think you’ve got it doesn’t mean you do, and 2) you need to find your style. hugo likes double breasted suits with giant peal lapels, maybe you don’t. maybe you like single breasted with notch lapels. maybe you like loafers but later decide you like oxfords more, etc. things like that. if you go in too deep too fast you will waste so much money and regret it
        that’s assuming you even have the balls to wear a full suit every day in a world where people wear sweatpants out in public.
        also, location matters. if you live in paris or rome, then this works. if you’re an american in hecking iowa and you wear this it won’t.

    Can a cheap suit look good as long it’s tailored to you properly?
    Or do you have to buy a really expensive suit to look good?

    • Anonymous says:

      Define good. I’d suggest with tailoring that you buy the best you can afford but even a cheap suit can look decent if you make smart choices and alterations.

    • Anonymous says:

      You run into diminishing returns with suits very quickly, but not immediately. A tailored, properly-fitting $600 suit from a halfway-decent outlet like SuitSupply won’t look out of place in a crowd of designer suits, but a legitimately cheap synthetic/blended suit will stick out, regardless of if it is tailored. But a poorly-fitting suit will always look bad.

    The other good one is the armoury, you see that they are not LARPing.

      while I agree, at the same time you just described that you will make mistake and purchase shit you dont like like double breasted or huge lapels, starting out and buying little by little or directly buying stuff for 5k is the same

        Mark Cho is a ruthless businessman but he knows his stuff and has a really great eye. Also a lot of god tier menswear comes from Japan and Hong Kong, if you know where to look (Ring Jacket, The Anthology, tons of bespoke shoemakers)

    Hugo and his wife both seem like really kind and genuine people. They’re a breath of fresh air compared to the wasteland that is fashion or style discussion on social media.

          Several Parisian meetings, like trunk show of CNES Shoes (amazing singaporian brand).
          The new Lanieri shop in Paris.
          And some cocktails about the french sartorial community.

          Everyone is well welcome here, it’s always joyful and fun.

            No you should’nt. i’m not gonna lie they are simple people. They understand that not everyone can afford a suit etc.
            I met a lot of people which came to those events with Hugo just because they love ties, or socks.
            So i met two guys with very cheap suits, like those suits at 60€ from H&M or worse, and they came because they had a huge collection of vintage ties. And there were very proud of it.

            I met a guy, who is now a friend of mine. He was 19 in 2022, and didnt have a lot of money, so a friend of him give him some true 100% cotton or wool drapers. And the man learn on the internet to make his own suit. first was a total mess, the sleeves were too shorts. But the guy came with it anyway and everybody was asking him about his work.
            The ambience is very joyful and wholesome. One night i talk to Hugo to ask him if i can get a picture with his wife and him and he said to me yes come with me.

            His wife has a genuine smile, cute hair and ridiculously great breasts. Also seems like a good all-around person. Hugo truly hit the jack pot

            This anon is right. i’ve got three pictures of myself on Insta and Sonya "like" one of them and put a comment.
            Three months later i met them at the Lanieri New Shops and when Hugo took to meet his wife for a photo, she recognize me. We were 300 that night and she said in english "oh yes you are the man with the fun pose in the metro".
            And i am nobody huh, i dont have a name, im not an influencer etc.

            Can’t find the photo i have with them and my wife sorry guys.

            funny because the first thing I would assume from him and being "friend" with cifonelli, huge shoe makers and big names in Paris was just him faking friendship just to get favors or some shit, but the dude might just be a genuine good guy after all

          • Anonymous says:

            The man is friend with Cifonelli and somes others, but a lot of them are from professionals relationships. It his job.
            But when "he open the event" everyone is welcome, i’ve met the owners of REDA1865 Drappers. The man is an italian millionaire and i casually talk to him. Even is french was very shy but it was okay.
            He was very surprised to see 300 people in the event and the average age was around 22 years old.

            Funny intercourse with Hugo, while i meet for the first time at the CNES Shoes Trunk Show in Paris, i asked him about the Lanierio New Shop Night event, like i dont know if i have a place to these kind of event cause i dont have any suit from them etc.
            And he said to me thats its ok i can here nobody is gonna juge me or anything else.
            And then i asked him if my wife can come with me to the Event, and he smile and said to me "Yes please, bring her with you, cause i’m afraid there will be only men". And he was kind of right, on the 300 guests, there were probably something like 25 women but that wasnt a problem, really nice event.

            I don’t watch "Sartorial Talks" cause i’m french so i watch the YT Channel in French, but i guess he do not serve the same audience, there are far more english content about Suits. Like Kirby Allison etc.
            But in France, the man is alone, he is the Godfather, every suit shop in France knows Hugo Jacomet. Cause a lot of customer come there and ask something "like Hugo Jacomet".

            Sonya Glin talked to my wife, my wife love the way Sonya dressed but she can’t dressed like her cause she is a doctor, always in white blouse. I met a guy who is in a video on YT, and we talked about handmade custom then we talked about DOOM Eternal i dont remember why.

            what kind of shoes the dudes in that kind of events wear?
            I’m starting to like and enjoy that kind of style but at the same time I have no clue which shoes to buy

            Sincerely its very classic, always remember that "simple is the best". Never buy some boots in crocodile yellow leather. Stay simple.
            Hugo was wearing different kind of Richelieu at those events (Oxford in english).

            Here is some of my own collections, my collection is bigger now but i have no modern pic.

            is it a good brand? I see a lot of them pre owned for cheap but I’m wondering if they are good

          • Anonymous says:

            To be honest they are my everyday easy shoes.
            When i take care of them (dont know the expression in english for "healing them") they became news again.

            Somes of my Finsbury are 5 years old and they are still comfy/pretty.
            Only one of mine had to change de bottom cause i weared too much but there are really good. And not so expensive.

            Here is my favorites brands (its not an order) : Finsbury, Morjas, Septième Largeur, InCorio, Crockett and Jones.

            on vinted you can cop almost brand new finsbury for 30-40 euros that is why I asked

            Im not a great expert in Vinted, is it easy to sell suits like Pini Parma brand ? i exercise now and i can’t put my old suits.
            I dont know if vinted is the good way to sold my suits.

            if you take time to lurk the website to see for how much people sell their suits to avoid selling for too low or for too much yeah it’s great
            most important is picture quality, taking time to take the measurements, good description, etc
            while lurking the website you can have a graps on how to take the pictures and the informations needed to sell it quick. I never bought or sold items on the website yet, lurking for a week and I might get some goodyear welted shoes brand new with dainite soles for like 60euros with shipping

            just browse the website for a bit and see it for yourself. I did browse the website for days without an account to see and in my opinion it’s great, but that’s my pov of a poorgay able to buy good pieces from well known brands for quite cheap, for example 150euros you can have almost new or new westons, crockett and jones etc, and not talking about septieme largeur that is even cheaper

    What’s the difference between a suit and a tuxedo?
    Also what are good colors for suits? Hugo said that black suits are bad unless you’re at a funeral. I didn’t know that. What colors can you wear then?

    • Anonymous says:

      Royal Blue, Navy Blue, Mid to Dark Grey. Those are your best bets to stick with, especially for a first suit. Black was typically reserved for evening wear, Black Tie and White Tie events, not your every day business. Or like you said, funerals.

      As for tuxedo vs shit it’s easy to mix them upon first glance. But a tux is generally reserved for black tie events. Worn with a bow tie rather than a necktie. It will also have satin lapels, typically in a shawl or peak collar. The trousers will also have a satin line down the side. There’s more little details but that’s the basic rundown.

    I wish he would give shoe advice
    they gave him and his wife advice and brands for every piece of clothes possible but never he gave advice on which shoe model to buy and to avoid
    I’m aware of the videos he made on brand recommendations but he never mentionned if you should prioritize derbies, oxfords, which kind of loafers, if chelseas or chukka are good when you like his kind of style etc

    literally had to google his name and closely look at his fits to see which shoes he choses

    just got a 100% wool navy blazer for 24 euros at the thriftstore lads
    might not even need tailoring, fit is almost perfect, maybe needs the sleevs to be shorter like half a centimeter
