How do you feel about wet/wet? I wear a lot of repp ties, and I know I should eventually pick up some madder or challis squares, but should I push them up the list? I generally wear oxford cloth shirts and tweed jackets, FWIW.
RTC, you know that if you don't wear a PS, she might not be able to tell you're an iGent from the get-go.
Srsly: I like that color combination, but wish I could get a sense of the proportions -- the coat looks kinda relaxed, and the pants look kinda skinny.
If BB Madison fits you, J. Crew's stuff probably won't. Also, the lapels are 2011 skinny.
You might be able to stack a mall coupon on top of that 15%.
The BB suits are solidly middle-of-the-road, so they're not going to date too badly any time soon.
Thanks for the review, @Stebbin. I don't know if this came up in your discussions with C & G, but is it possible to go in for a fitting on their lower-end suits?
Also, does anybody know anything about their shirts and trousers, or have an (even) cheaper recommendation for somebody in Shanghai to make those?
Claghorn, I had that issue with your wool tie just a little bit, but I felt the relatively dressy shirt balanced it out.
The second one probably works better in real life, if I remember how your hair looks. Not to get all on you, but I don't feel like you filled out the range in terms of color value perfectly, and I think the saturation doesn't come together perfectly.
Yeah, I should do that. Thesis film, so getting to throw on a baseball cap and look exactly like Ron Howard is fairly funny. I dig that, Claghorn, I'm often tempted to wear my cord jacket with wool trousers, but I doubt my particular examples of each would work as well as yours do. And the bridle belt is a great touch.
