I like a bright red or a light blue or if I'm conservative silver. Unless the suit is a thinner material in which case I would not get a contrasting lining

Anybody know where I can get a bolt of the lining from the Fresh Prince prep school jackets?

I'm thinking something erotic, and sexy would be enticing: Although Paul Smith did those cuffs a la Tony Blair, I don't think he has done suit linings yet.

He's done tie lining with erotic display. I have a few.

And then there are those naughty collar stays by one company whose name I've forgotten. But who wears collar stays anyway?

I just bought a light cream colored sport coat with a shiny lime green lining, i love it. Makes me want to turn the thing inside out and wear it that way. Its interesting how this concealed / added color can really change the personality of the jacket.

How much and how difficult is it to replace an existing jacket's linings?

It takes a worker a day's work. Not difficult but needs attention. I've considered this with my tailor for a couple of jackets and it would be about $150. I dont know if that's the prevailing rate. Oh, and I like fancy linings too. I like shot linings, bight linings, ones with little patterns on them, self or otherwise. I didnt used to, but I need new toys

I also hate bright colored contrasting linings in suits as well as in all other tailored clothing (which, of course, consists of sportsjackets or odd jackets, odd pants, odd vests, top coats, overcoats, tuxedos, morning coats and tailcoats), Matt.

At the absolute least, it is me as much as it is you, maybe more.

Sky blue is darker than baby blue, right?

Also, marine blue is lighter than sky blue and darker than baby blue, right?

As the original poster - way back in 2006 - I do have to confess that for the last twelve months I have reverted to matching linings!

Possibly for a change, possibly taste changing.

Not too sure why this one has been resurected though but an interesting remonder of how my commisons change though with the same bespoke tailor.

Funny to see an old thread revived. I'm far less a fan than I was two years ago. I now prefer linings in the same color of the jacket material.

I recall seeing a Paul Smith suit that was a tone-on-tone purple map of London. I would love something like that.

I like contrasting linings, sometimes, but it should be muted and complimentary, like burgundy with navy or plum with gray.
