REVIEWING SUIT RENTALS AIM TO COLLAR MASS MARKET. GREAT IDEA, BUT WILL THE FFIT MEASURE UP?

Previous Post: What is the next style for 2016?

Nice suits are expensive. Cheap suits are, well, cheap. Even the in between, that midrange sweet spot of build quality and affordability, will set you back closer to a grand than not. If you need to wear suits regularly, you need deep pockets.

Monthly suit rental service NextSuit is looking to change all that.

"The idea came from my personal frustration of needing to wear different suits but not being able to afford to buy multiple suits that I wanted," NextSuit founder Valentine Ollawa told BostInno. "After discussing with friends and colleagues, I realized that I wasn't facing this burden alone. So I decided to create this company to provide an alternative to suit ownership through rentals."

The company is currently in pre-launch phase, looking to roll out in Southern California before expanding to other locations. Ollawa told us Boston is "very high on our list of cities."

The gap in the market NextSuit seeks to fill is closer to a chasm. Burgeoning businessmen – or even just those intent on dressing above their pay grade – can hardly afford a closet full of suits. Owning three quality suits can represent a couple month's paychecks. Required to rock a suit Monday through Friday? The sticker shock will be severe.

NextSuit will offer one suit per month for $80, or two for $140. You send them your measurements and select your suit and it'll be shipped within 24 hours. Wear it as many times as you want within the month. Then send it back in a provided prepaid package. Ollawa said they plan to have as many different colors and styles as possible, and will cater to the aesthetic most preferred by their customers.

"Our target customers," said Ollawa, "are the men who would otherwise walk into a department store to buy a suit that fits them and is ready to wear."

Admittedly, it's here where I grow a bit skeptical. Very few suits truly fit off the rack. And even very good custom suiting companies like Indochino or Alton Lane or Blank Label often require a quick nip and tuck at the tailor to get just right. Sending in your measurements will get you close. Close doesn't quite cut it when it comes to a suit.

Ollawa said NextSuit has partnered with various tailors to head off any fit concerns. Also, it should go without saying that the suits will be thoroughly cleaned before heading off to their monthly home.

Here's to hoping NextSuit nails it. Price is often the biggest prohibitor between dudes looking good and settling for less. This could swing the pendulum the other way.

We'll tip our hats to that.

Reviewing the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro
The 6th Generation Camaro Worth $37,295

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has arrived, and it looks trim and toned—and thirsty for Ford Mustang blood.

Yes, we’ve already mentioned that car. There’s simply no way to avoid the Mustang when you discuss the Camaro, just as there’s no denying that the Ford largely overshadowed the Chevy for five decades. Consider that the first 1967 Camaro was a two-year-late response to the Blue Oval’s original pony. Or that, until recently, the Mustang traditionally outsold the Camaro. Or that the Camaro nameplate was scuttled from 2003 through 2009, an indignity never suffered by the Mustang. (To be fair, that the front-drive Probe was intended to be a Mustang might be the bigger humiliation.) Or, perhaps worst of all for bow-tie fans, that the Camaro has usually lost to the Mustang in our comparison tests.

But the slate has been wiped clean; the road course, drag strip, and Woodward Avenue freshly prepared for battle; and the Camaro reinvigorated with more muscle and a plethora of new technologies. This should be good.

Laying the Groundwork

The most potent weapon in the new, sixth-gen Camaro’s arsenal is its platform. The new car sits on GM’s Alpha architecture, the foundation on which the Cadillac ATS and CTS have built their reputations for kick-ass dynamics. Chevrolet says that the new car is 28 percent more structurally rigid than the last one, and that some 70 percent of its Alpha component set is unique to the 2016 Camaro. (This seems like a good point to drop in the fact that the only carry-over part numbers are said to be the bow tie on the decklid and the SS badge.) The Alpha bones make for a slightly smaller Camaro in every dimension; the 2016 is 2.3 inches shorter overall, 0.8 inch narrower, and 1.1 inch shorter in height. The wheelbase is down by 1.6 inches, and the track measurements, front and rear, are reduced by between 0.4 and 1.1 inch, depending on trim level.

All the decimal shaving results in a car that, depending on the trim level, is more than 200 pounds lighter at the curb, according to Chevrolet; the body-in-white alone is down by 133 pounds. Even before we dive into the rest of the chassis and powertrain details, that’s already promising—weight is the enemy of performance, after all. Rendering the cross-dash beam in aluminum instead of steel saved 9.2 pounds, while 26 pounds were pulled from the suspension by using aluminum links up front and punching holes into the steel links fitted out back. Once again, the front end is suspended via struts while the rear gets a multilink arrangement; GM’s sublime Magnetic Ride Control active dampers will be available for the first time on the Camaro SS.

Every Camaro can be equipped with Brembo brakes, and the branding is standard—and the pieces beefier—on the SS. Non-SS models get 12.6-inch rotors squeezed by four-piston calipers at the front and 12.4-inch discs and single-piston calipers out back, while the SS upgrades to four-piston fixed calipers all around and 13.6- and 13.3-inch rotors. Eighteen-inch wheels and Goodyear Eagle Sport all-seasons are stock on non-SS models, and they can be upgraded to 20-inchers with Eagle F1 Asymmetric run-flats. The SS will roll off the Lansing, Michigan, assembly line with 20-inch wheels wrapped in Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 run-flats (you know, for twice the eagle-ness).
Powertrain: 4-6-8

The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro engine lineup is very similar to the Mustang’s, as it features a turbocharged four-cylinder and naturally aspirated V-6 and V-8 options, but the blown four will serve as the base motor in the Chevy. The two smaller engines will be available in both LT and 2LT guise (they’re the only two trims with those engines), while the eight-cylinder is again SS-exclusive. In contrast, the V-6 Mustang is the bottom feeder and available with very little in the way of options.

The four—the first in a Camaro in 30 years—and the six can be ordered bolted to a Tremec TR3160 six-speed manual transmission or GM’s 8L45 eight-speed automatic. The SS gets the same transmission types and gear counts, but the manual is the familiar Tremec TR6060 (now with active rev-matching) and the automatic is the 8L90 that’s also available in the latest Corvette.

The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine makes 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, just about equal with its output in the Cadillac ATS and CTS. Chevy says it’ll return more than 30 mpg on the highway and hustle the Camaro to 60 mph in less than six seconds, although the company doesn’t specify which transmission achieves those numbers. For reference, we’ve tested the EcoBoost Mustang and achieved zero to 60 mph in 5.5 (manual) and 5.2 seconds (automatic). GM’s 2.0-liter is too coarse and uneven in its Cadillac applications, but hopefully the Camaro wizards have found a way to smooth out the power delivery. We also wouldn’t mind if they made it rev a little more freely.
