    Anyone know a tailor in the LA area who can do a bespoke nehru suit (not a tux, a suit)?

    Thanks.

    If they're good enough, any tailor should be able to, as long as you supply images of the style, etc.

    Why is 'not a tux' specified? I've never known dinner jackets to be commonly made with a Nehru collar?

    It was a late 60s thing. They did everything in matters of black tie, including the "formal Nehru jacket". Didn't look too formal, though, as you can imagine. I think there's an example in the BlackTieGuide.com site.

    Any respectable tailor should be capable of replicating the Nehru. Alternatively, you might contact Uncle Onyango (President Obama's uncle) about buying or renting his genuine, original 100% pure virgin polyester LEASURE SUIT. This photo was from his DUI court appearance in Massachusetts a couple of years ago.

    Moderators: I think this politically oriented response should be cut since, after the first sentence, it has nothing to do with my question.

    Leisure Suit. If you're going to mock that Soul Train suit, you have to get the spelling right.:p

    I stand humbly corrected. Spellling was never a strong suit, and with the advent of autospell, there's been no improvement...

    Didn't mean to offend anyone with the leisure suit comment and photo. I actually thought it was a great suit at the time of the hearing, and do so now.

    I'm not offended. You showed me something I didn't even know about.
