Black shirts are fine to wear with jeans, but I'd never, ever wear one with a tie or suit. I'm a college student and every single person I've ever seen wearing a black shirt with a tie and/or a suit has been a meathead who has no idea how to dress himself and pairs a rumpled black shirt with a shiny solid, frequently black tie (as DocHoliday suggested earlier) and black chinos.

As I understand it, removing pleats requires a recut, which he is having done anyway. So I don't know if it would be that much more.
These boards would seem to be quite valuable. People essentially come here to learn about how to spend relatively large amounts of money on luxury items. Just look at people chomping at the bit for the 5EPxSF denim over in Streetwear. That's a pretty sizable transaction generated entirely by the board.
I got my Haspel from STP today. It's pretty great. I was worried after reading this thread that the cut would be too full for me, but it's really not bad at all. I'm going to have it nipped in the waist. My only complaints are that the rise on the trousers is a bit higher than I'd like and that the shoulders have too much padding for this kind of suit, IMO.
Very happy with it though, considering it cost me $120.
