Eddie Fitzgerald is a veteran storyboard writer for cartoons, and he has a very funny (or peculiar) blog. He just wrote a nice, short illustrated history of men's suits. Maybe you'll like it. Uncle Eddie's Theory Corner: Savile Row Suits
I am in my 20's and am generally clueless but I agree that a backpack is not good... but, I will also say that I have worn a backpack () that is kind of boring/sporty (looks like this one) and I think no one really cares. This is just for getting around a conference when I also had to carry around another bag in my hands.

Thanks BoomDiggs! I... am... not confident about that! But I'll look into it. One more question tonight: This is about checking my measurements. What is an acceptable margin of error when comparing my fit to eBay listings? I measured my best-fitting jacket, and the chest width is 20 inches. There's a jacket on ebay with a width of 21 inches.

I just got some new buttons for a blazer. Can I take this to any ol' alterations shop? Or do I need to go to a (more advanced level) "tailor?" (got em from someone here on StyleForum
Got em in the mail. They're great. Thanks!
