I don't care for solid socks, but, when I'm wearing a suit, I like the background color to match my pants. Whenever I wear socks that contrast or pick up the color of some other item I'm wearing, I feel self-concious. If I'm not wearing a suit, I prefer socks that contrast with my pants. I have no idea why I feel this way, but I do.
So, another question about Lessers. I met with Patrick today and couldn't settle on a fabric. I had wanted a dark grey (maybe just a bit lighter than charcoal) nailhead and didn't find one in any of the books. Anyway, I looked at the Target book again, the Crispair and the Lessers 11-12 oz. book. I failed to look at the 9 1/2 - 10 oz Lessers book. Assuming, I'm looking for something no warmer than the 10-11 oz. Target fabrics which I'm familiar with, was I looking at...

I'm thinking a 1/2" lower buttoning point. Any thoughts?

Quote: Originally Posted by Manton The traditional way (or at least the Huntsman way) to cut a one button SB is to raise the buttoning point a hair over what it would be on two button. It's more like a three button stance with the top and bottom buttons left off, and a lapel rolled to the waist. That's interesting. I had thought that lowering the button placement made more sense--in order to elongate the lapel line. I checked the...
I'm considering ordering my next suit from Chan as a one button, notch lapel. It seems as though the one button, single breasted suits shown always have peak lapels. Why is this? Is there something deeply wrong in combining a single button closure with a notch lapel? Any reason to avoid this combo?
I wear black C&J Sandown (chukka) with suits. I'm waiting on a a pair of C&J Chepstows to wear with jeans and khakis.

Chan includes shipping and customs duties in the quoted price.
