Time for a stupid question..

I have this black double-breasted Neil Barrett blazer in an odd, kind of textured stretch wool. Can I wear this with normal black wool trousers? Or will the blacks/textures not matching exactly make it look out of place? Would just try it myself but black wool trousers are still on my kop list.

I´m planning on wearing a kinda grey-ish suit with a grey tee tomorrow. I wanna try the whole tee+suit thing. I haven´t checked how close the colors are but I think there wouldn´t be much contrast. Should I try better with a darker tee?

Those 2 things can make something like a simple v neck, rolled up chino look improve drastically.
Also, optional things are a nice watch and a nice briefcase/bag.
EDIT- One more thing....how hot is it where your at? Even in summer......when evening comes around I can still wear pants and button up shirt? I just go with linen and linen blends....

yeah footwear + accessories are the way to go definitely.

about 80 F or 30+ C constant, humidity 90+%
yeah cotton shirts and stuff are still alright but certainly no layering. i hate the rough texture on linen/blends though.

Wooster is also a short dude. Proportion play isn't going to look good on short dudes like, ever

Besides kunk the only people i've ever seen in rick both IRL and online except for rick himself have been some degree of out of shape.

I thought this is an interesting article. Posted in MC because perhaps some there (Manton?) can elaborate, verify, or give countering evidence, for the history of the suit ? Well it was interesting to me, in particular the paragraph I've quoted below. I have 1 suit, a single-butting Raf from spring/summer 2008, and I've never worn it. I don't like the concept of fitting the human form much. I prefer that my outfits, uniforms or otherwise, drape gently over my body, not to hide anything but rather I find the concept quite elegant. Anyway, thought I'd share and get your reactions to the article !

Men's clothing

Suitably dressed

The lounge suit, battledress of the world’s businessmen, is 150 years old—possibly

The practice of fitting cloth closely to the human form rather than draping it around the body was new. As fashion historians point out, medieval linen-armourers had long made padded undergarments that fitted beneath suits of armour, reducing a little the discomfort of wearing plates of steel. But the Enlightenment and neoclassicism brought tightly fitted clothing to the surface. In an attempt to emulate Greek statues of naked men, Brummel commissioned figure-hugging trousers and coats. He used plain colours to focus attention on form and line, ushering in what Mr Kelly calls “the tyranny of monochrome”. When the prince regent swapped his flamboyant wardrobe for Brummel’s stripped-down style it spread across London and beyond.

Last stuff I tried on from Garbstore was from FW10 so maybe it's changed but I thought it ran a tad big. Not necessarily enough to size down.

It's so often that I see people wanting to trade/sell their Silent Polios pants because of the hem. I understand it's too tight, but could someone give a more clear explanation? Like, is it so tight that you absolutely can't get it past your feet or just find it to be a bit of a struggle? I say this because I've considered buying them but that hem issue is making me rethink it.

The suit as we know it today (matching jacket and pants) started out as loungewear. Basically invented so rich English dudes could be comfy smoking pipes and drinking scotch in their country homes. For work in the city, it was a heavier frock coat and contrasting pants. But, the "casual" lounge suit was so loved it eventually became acceptable to wear to the office and became known as the "business suit". I don't think the original suits were all drapey though. Some were form fitting and some were loose. I think Brooks Bros was famous for creating or at least popularizing the "sack suit" around the turn of the century. The sack jacket has no darts so it just sort of hangs in a straight line from the shoulders. Usually paired with stovepipe pants. One of the old MC posters has his own forum Cutter & Tailor that has lots of examples and explanations of old suit tailoring.
