Hi I have a brand new detachable stiff collar to be worn with a tie. The trouble is that the tie will not move within the collar so I cannot tighten the tie. The silk of the tie and cotton of the collar appear to just lock and get stuck. I've heard talcum powder on the collar could help, but that could be very messy. any advice? Thanks R
Hi, I'm wearing a top hat, morning coat (black), striped grey trousers with braces, a light blue shirt with white collar and cuffs, and ... a dove grey double breasted waistcoat. I'm hoping for some thoughts on Waistcoat I'm having made a dove grey double breasted waistcoat. I can have a shawl or a peaked lapel. The tailor prefers peaked lapels, but has said i can have what I want. This is a suit that I intend to last, and I was wondering what might be best to go for...

Not sure that you are basing that on. SuitSupply you can get a whole morning suit for £300, Hackett the morning coat alone costs £750. Which is what I would expect, I've never known the two to be in the same price bracket.As for the £2.5k comment, it would be more relevant if I was spending £1.5k, I realize the limitations of my budget.Any other thoughts?
Thanks - given the "arbitrary" comment, does anyone have opinions based in experience? Much appreciated R
Hi All I'm getting married next year and will be wearing a morning suit,  I've had to scrap the Savile Row bespoke option and have hugely reduce the budget. I'm hoping you can help. I notice that SuitSupply have a a morning suit for £300! Is this likely to be worse quality than a decent rental. Are there any chance there shops anyone might recommend? Or, get a second hand morning suit. . Does anyone have any recommendations for shops selling second hand morning coats,...
Hi All I'm getting married next year and will be wearing a morning suit, I've had to scrap the Savile Row bespoke option and hugely reduce the budget. I'm hoping you can help. My idea is now to purchase either a second hand or a decent quality morning coat. The Marks and Spencers option seems to be part polyester so is a firm no. Does anyone have any recommendations for shops selling second hand morning coats, or somewhere that does off the rack morning coats at...
