Over the decades, I've owned many, many suits (as that's what I wear most days, and this has been the case for a very long time), and the overwhelming majority of them have featured cuffed pants, so I'd have to say "yes."But I appreciate that in many countries cuffed pants are far less common than they are in the US. (Much as French cuff shirts are far more popular in many other countries than they are in the US.) Since you haven't indicated where you are located...I would...
Look, I dislike warm weather. A lot. I'm much happier in January than I am in July. And I even know that summer heat kills far, far more people than does winter cold.But for Dog's sake man, it's May. Not August. And it's Maryland. Not Death Valley.Looking at the National Weather Service's forecast for my own little corner of Baltimore County, Maryland, for the coming week, there's not a single day which is predicted to have a high temperature exceeding 73 degrees. And not...
Is this Italian tailor someone local? Because when it comes to bespoke clothing, the ability to visit the tailor a couple of times for fittings and the like is of huge value. Indeed, one could maintain that if you're not visiting the tailor a couple of times, it's not bespoke (in the strictest sense), but the presumably lesser made-to-measure. (Not that made-to-measure is necessarily the wrong choice. It depends.)Some would tell you that if you truly don't want to waste...
I have purchased a few JAB dress shirts over the years. All non-iron. They've proven perfectly adequate. Naturally, they're insanely overpriced at their "regular" price, but why would anyone buy anything from JAB at full price? JAB is also very easy when it comes to returns, and there are many JAB stores near me, so anything I might buy from them but not like, I can return without any difficulty. Which is a nice plus.In the same general price range as JAB, Lands' End dress...
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...
