To all too many people, someone in peak lapels and double breasted suits/blazers will look like a fashion dandy. Which isn't normally what a small man seeking to come across as more masculine is after.I'm not going to debate whether simply wearing a double-breasted blazer should elicit such a reaction. I'm just noting that in many cases it does. Heck, to a significant segment of the population, anything better than jeans and a t-shirt is viewed with suspicion. That's just...
While the practice of putting bridesmaids in matching dresses goes back a fair number of years,the notion that groomsmen must wear identical suits is a relatively new one.If you look at wedding photos from decades past, you will routinely see groomsmen wearing non-uniform navy suits, grey suits, tuxedos, etc.And it will not look odd. It will look perfectly fine.(Nor have I ever heard of anyone looking at 25 year old wedding photos, and bemoaning the fact that the groomsmen...
No. Generally, one buys the same size in monks as in oxfords.
No, it's not an issue.Don't be that SF guy who over-thinks the matter until he convinces himself there's a problem.
Wear it if you like. In real life, nobody's likely to draw a distinction between your lilac/lavender pinpoint, and a lilac/lavender OCBD, worn with your jeans.Sure, some might say it's too formal. But some will insist that anything beyond a t-shirt or sweat shirt is too formal.As for whether it violates some traditional standard of dress... traditional standards of dress don't really concern themselves with jeans in the first place. So nothing much to worry about on that...
Over the past several years, more men have learned that dry cleaning (notably, excessive dry cleaning and/or poor or marginal quality dry cleaning) can be hard on a suit. That more people are aware of this fact is a good thing.Unfortunately, some fail to understand the problem in its appropriate context. Rather than turning away from overly frequent and/or poor quality dry cleaning of their suits, they have developed an unnecessary and exaggerated fear of any dry cleaning...
It's a thing. Sometimes even combined with that other thing - tucking the tail of the tie into one's pants.But in real life, I can't ever recall seeing a man wearing a tie and thinking to myself, "He'd look better if his tie's tail were hanging slightly lower than the blade."
Consider the Anderson-Little Classic Blue Blazer. It's within your budget, and should prove perfectly acceptable for fraternity and other college-type events where a blazer would be appropriate. It's not 100% wool. In purist terms, this makes it the most horrible thing ever to exist in the history of the universe. On the other hand, this does tend to leave it far more wrinkle-resistant than a 100% wool blazer would be, and that's no small plus, particularly for a college...
About as often as it is to wear your underwear over your pants.
