When I got my bespoke suit made, I asked for a special pocket to be sewn in to hold my credit card and phone.

Since then, I keep my 'wallet' in this case as you noted the Prada one in my overcoat.

I found any bulk on a nicely made suit jacket 'ruins' the balling look LOL

The iPhone 5 is in my pocket as well, but can't take pictures of itself. And my Mont Blanc Meisterstuck is tucked into my shirt placket, so it doesn't count.

Also, I keep my watch on my wrist - not in my pocket. That's just odd.


Yes, you are right... watch is on my wrist. It's just a habit for me. Empty pockets and watch comes off...

At some point, it makes more sense to pay for a ticket to Singapore and purchase a bespoke suit there for $100.

LOL I sure hope you don't and I will be first to encourage you not to! The labour costs are cheaper but the material cost will be somewhat equivalent (less duties and taxes). If you are going for besopke, go for the most expensive material you can afford. It is well worth it especially how the end product hangs on your frame.

I'm nowhere near bespoke suit territory and doubt I ever will be. Colorado has a different cultural standard when it comes to clothing. If I practiced in Chicago, my suits would be more expensive. Out here, I get a $600 suit that fits well and I'm dressed better than 99% of the state.

I even get credit-card sized pockets! ;)

It's all proportional, I guess. If I had, say, my dad's income, I'd probably have suits made for me. Give me another 30 years of law under my belt and maybe I'll be where he is - with about 10x the monthly salary and some significant partnership income to boot. At that point, $5000+ on a suit wouldn't make much of a dent.
