I know its a faux pas wearing a BD and a jacket, but this combo is my jam today..
Individualized and Vittorio
Yeah disagree as well. If the BD has a substantial enough collar, it looks great under a jacket. In fact, most of my BDs hold up better beneath the lapels than some of my point collars.
I guess you are right.
I did a little research, and my statement may have been based on some SF misinformation.
Apparently the BD + Blazer is acceptable, but not a suit.
Marginally ok with a tie, depending on the formality of the tie.
A couple questions about the incoming Portuguese suit separates:
1) Do you know the hip measurement for Walt and Rudy? I typically take a 35 in Rudy, and take the waist in about an inch. I suspect with these Walts, I'd have to size up to a 36 and take the waist in two inches or more, which could make for strange-looking pocket placement. A 35 could work with alterations to the seat and thigh, but I'd rather avoid those.
2) What tone of grey will be stocked?
