Sean, Do you have any input on my fit? I am thinking about shortening the jacket. Sorry for the sub-par pic: http://i.imgur.com/i3wVayV.jpg http://i.imgur.com/WKPn4hu.jpg Thanks for advice!
Thanks for your input, k4lnamja. Below are some (admittedly not ideal) pictures of me wearing the sport coat prior to any alterations. Again I think it could use about an inch off the length? Though it does appear that the top button point is dead center right now. Should I shorten it? Also how viable is it to soften the shoulder padding? As of right now it is quite stiff. Lastly, how viable is sleeve slimming? I think it could possible use some. I may just get the...
So I purchased the Brooks Brothers tweed sport coat shown below from ebay. Though it's marked as a 41R (which I usually fit well in) it is longer than my other BB coats. Granted I don't have a fit pic yet but I can say that with my hands at my sides in a relaxed cupped C position the jacket touches my finger tips. I prefer my jackets to reach the end of my thumb. What is the viability of having the jacket shortened a bit (3/4 of an inch?)? Is this a practical alteration?...
Avoid business casual. It's the nemesis to a well dressed man. You're going to have a lot of missteps, it's inevitable. I would read the "whnay good taste" thread to learn a lot about dressing well. A few quick tips: Skip the crummy shoes and get quality shoes that fit well. Allen Edmonds quality should suffice. You will feel a drastic difference in quality over something like Cole Haan's and it will save you money and anguish in the long run. Always get the longer...
I doubt it's as simple as you may suspect. Though it's a completely different garment I wanted to get a different collar applied to my Barbour Liddesdale jacket. My tailor said it was more complicated than it appeared at first blush and it'd cost $60-80 which is half the cost of the jacket. I declined. I'd imagine a tux would be quite a bit more expensive.
Sebago's designed by Ronnie Fieg may be your best bet. They take about a week of wear to break in. I usually put duct tape surreptitiously on the back of my heel until they're comfortable for regular wear. http://shop.ronniefieg.com/collections/rf-x-sebago-men http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0070/9152/products/DSC_6766_1024x1024.jpg?1969
The vast majority of the time when I see a lighter SC with darker pants it looks like that person just strolled out of Joseph A. Banks. In my opinion it's rarely executed well. sugarbutch - I was referring to the slogan in your avatar. I thought without the beard you might be more cheery? Unless your slogan is meant to be taken in a more intimately descriptive anatomical manner in which case I am shocked and appalled!
^de-bearded? Do have a more graceful demeanor until it grows back? It looks good overall but the lapels are a bit slim on that suit. Also, do you have your pocket flaps all stuffed in or are they welt pockets?
You could save it and make it work for a streetwear type shirt if you dabble in that style. I can't imagine it working too well in a professional setting without standing out for all of the wrong reasons.
If you do your diligence and are patient then you could probably find that watch or something similar on WatchUSeek or EBay. I bought a gently used Hamilton X Wind from WUS for something like $650. They retail for quite a bit more than that. The model you posted might not be as common to find. I would suggest searching for the similar looking Jazzmaster which is more abundant. I also purchased a Jazzmaster Open Heart on ebay for something like $600.00. It's my favorite...
