Gentlemen,here's my quandry.(Manton,if you could weigh in on this,that would be great).I'm considering buying a used ,(very nice.)bespoke Savile Row suit from a person who is not as tall as me.In all other respects,jacket,shoulders,sleeves,the suit is fine.It's just that he has a 30" inseam,whereas mine is 32".Therefore, to increase the inseam to my size,I would need to lose the turnups ,or cuffs.(Incidentally,this is a dressier striped cloth,not a country tweed).Is it okay to have non-cuffed trousers with a 3 piece suit?Chances are I won't wear the vest most of the time.Which brings me to another question.Is it more proper to wear a vest in daytime or evening,or does it really matter?
