I have been invited to a "cocktail attire" party, hosted in a private home by a business associate in honor of a couple getting married. Normally, for anything involving a wedding, I wear a suit and tie. For a cocktail party, at least a jacket, dress shirt with collar, killer shoes and appropriate trousers. But the host made a point of saying, "it's a cocktail party, but you can wear khakis if you like, I know my husband the co-host will". Strangely, I have a feeling...
I found a midnight blue "casual" blazer on sale, and was wondering if it can still be considered casual if there is some minor padding in the shoulder? It looks slim, and cut beautifully, and the pockets look great. Everything about it says, "not a work suit" except of the minor padding. My second question is: what can you wear with a midnight blue blazer? It looks black in either night or day. My thought was a pair of dark washed jeans, or charcoal slim...
Hell yes or hell no? Here it is: scroll down to the sateen jacket and jeans. http://frachelli.com/?tag=mens thanks for your opinion

Thanks

I need a cottom suit. I am debating on whether to have BB do a made to measure Fitz vs. the Ludlow off the rack from J.Crew. I like the styling better with J.Crew Lapel is slimmer. But it looks and feels fused. Because it is. On the other hand the BB Fitz is better quality, made to measure, fully canvassed. The lapel is fatter and cannot be altered by BB. It looks stodgy. What should I buy? It's only a summer suit. TIA.

Dig a little deeper and you should be able to determine if it's something you're interested in. Bingo that's probably it, but if you know of other options, let me know...my budget is about $1,500.
I am trying to find a casual, cotton suit in a stone color, but cannot find one that comes close to fitting. I did locate a Calvin Klein in the right color, but the fit through the middle was full and balloon like. Personally I am 5'8 155 lbs, slim and fit. Can anyone point me towards a brand that is slim, stone color and decent quality?? Thank you for your time and help.

If you've got some younger friends/co-workers and they want to go out to a club, and you want to socialize, that's fine. But if so, honestly my advice is to dress your age. Much better to not look like you're an old dude trying to go hard with the youngsters -- just be like "yeah I'm 47, fuck of it? My...
