I like Charleston, but I like Savannah more. For a Southern city I find Charleston to be a little expensive, where Savannah is more accessible financially. We're in the middle of a 10 day Hilton Head beach vaca...its ironic that I had to come down here to escape the awful heat (100+) and humidity of NYC.

After this week, we're heading to Kentucky to do some Bourbon tours for a few days, then back to the borough!

Epaulet - any chance for a peacoat / those types of jacket for fall?
post #22188 of 37429

Weller Navy Super 120s sportcoat just came in to match my trousers for the full suit. I know I need my tailor to shorten the sleeves and suppress the waist, but should I size down for the fit in the shoulders?

Also, these 2.75in lapels are slimmer than any suit I have owned. Is the suit conservative enough to wear professionally? I work for a Big Four accounting firm in the southern United States, so the typical office garb is fairly traditional/baggy. Thoughts?

I think it's easy to say that that in no way really fits you and you should at the very least size shorter. It might be the pictures (which are really bad and could be better, which you should redo and post in the tailors fit and feedback) but my vote is to change the size.

the lapels are already bowing and sizing down will make that worse. the weller cut just might not work for you.

Good for you, Rob.  I'm a Kentucky boy and a bourbon lover.  Do yourself a favor and get down Bardstown for some tastings at the Willet Distillery.  It's a short drive from Louisville.

Sizing aside, it might be a little snappy for the big four. If your clients are in suits, then id go four a business-y suit. If they are in business casual and you are the beard dressed guy there, then I say wear the jacket you want but no skinny ties, no horsebit loafers, etc.

Awesome...we will hit Bardstown first, definitely want to check out Willet...I scored a bottle of their 21 year old Family Estate in Charleston and just got a FE 10 from a friend in Mississippi. Other scores from SC were three bottles of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof which may be my favorite bourbon, and at $42, just an awesome sip. I saved up for HH where I want to buy a EW 23, but its REAL pricey...we're gonna do the BT Ghost Tour in Frankfort Saturday night with the kids which should be fun, but Four Roses is also a must stop for my wife and I...we love their juice.

Anyway, enough booze...gingham mash up shirt at mini golf...my three year old son literally spent 18 holes running around taking everyone's balls and placing them in the holes celebrating wildly afterwards...had the whole place in fits of laughter...and this was another $25 special...

I'm from Kentucky, too, but I never acquired a taste for bourbon. It's one of my great personal failings, and one I vow to remedy every New Year's, along with my yearly resolution to become more patient. I'm still working on that one, too.

Obviously, this is a bit off-topic, but if you're a Four Roses fan, I can't overstate what a great bourbon this is:

I have a few bottles of Pappy, the Jefferson 18, a 21 year old WLW and I would point the Four Roses single barrels in the same category. K&L gets a couple different iterations throughout the year ranging from $40-$60 and every one I've ever had has been simply stunning.

Just want to enthusiastically second this!  When I'm not drinking rye, I'm almost always drinking this one.  Both Four Roses single barrel and small batch are terrific!

Rhodes112 - I will echo some of the others here to say that jacket does look a little big on you. Actually, it looks like it might be a little too long. You might be better off special ordering a short instead of the regular length.

However, once you find a size that fits well, it will be perfectly acceptable for almost any business environment I can think of. It's a conservative color and fabric, the details are all very classic and subdued (except for maybe the purple lining), and nobody is going to look at your lapels and think they're too narrow. Personally I like wider lapels, but the Weller cut is not too fashion forward for a Big Four accounting firm.
