I was thinking of a t-shirt under a sports coat kind of thing. As you mentioned, the second night out sounds a bit casual. Personally, I don't like the t-shirt under a sports coat thing too much. If it's going to be casual and relax, why not just lose...

It definitely is better than the 15/35, and it looks good to me, but I'm not exactly sure if that's the "correct" length. The experts on SF might be able to provide more advice. Personally though, I don't think tailoring your jacket sleeve to match whatever RTW shirt you buy is an optimal solution. There are rules on where the sleeve (of both jacket and shirt)...

A store I frequent is hosting the event so they let me know. If I do hear of any visits to the States, though, I'll be sure to give you a heads ups. jmark Thanks! P.S. Tokyo's a fun city.

Hey jmark, Which city are you in? And how did you find out about their visit? I couldn't find their website and would be grateful for more information. Thanks.

Yet another gem from SF. If one didn't have a butler, how did one (or more specifically, one's clothes) survive before SF?

I'm wondering: since the suit coat covers most of the front part of the pants where the pleats would (or would not) be, does the choice of flat fronts or pleated matter so much if the trousers are part of a suit?
