What tips would you give a teen moving to a tropical country on casual wear? What should I adorn my closet with?

Thank you good sir, I did not even consider the British brands as I thought they'd be well out of my price range, but it appears the Loake Kemptons is slightly over $200 USD VAT.

Do you know if they hold up well in the rain?

Saddle actually has a pretty strong orange hue to it. I personally have it and love it, but I'm not sure it's what he wants.

Yeah, I already have a 1.5" saddle belt from Tanner, but it looks too chunky (not just width, but thickness) to go with sleeker shoes and khakis for business casual days. I don't even know what I want - probably a happy medium between a saddle-style belt and a boring dress belt. If it's any help, I tend to stick to the Our Legacy/Unis/APC aesthetic: nice basics with a trimmer fit.

Anyone know anything about pants by James Ervish?

Linen!  Linen, linen, and more linen! 

 

Linen allows sweat to evaporate easily, and doesn't retain body heat as much as most other fabrics do.  Opt for looser garments, to allow for air flow.

 

Oh, and get some good deoderant.  You'll need it.

Pretty much that, but Forward/Corner/Acrimony are where I would pick up silent. Always goes to deep drops, especially if you're in a weird size

I'd like to start wearing jeans that I can tuck shirts into. But I have not been able to find jeans that have the right dimensions; i.e., that fit around my waist an inch or so under my bellybutton but have enough room for my butt and thighs. At the moment I have just one pair of jeans: Levi's 550 (relaxed fit)* in a 32, which get the butt and thighs right and look nice with shirt untucked but are loose around my waist and not quite high-rise enough.

Measurements are: waist 31"; butt 40"; thighs 24".

With chinos or dress pants I can get pants with a high enough raise and just have the waist taken in, but I've read that tailoring the waist on jeans is not advisable (something about the pockets ending up tilted inward?). Any thoughts? Where should I look?

Do you want them slimmer fit? I got a pair of slim-straight Diesel Safado's that I can fit into and we have similar dimensions, though my thighs, butt, and waist are all an inch or two larger. I just sized up in the waist ever so slightly and they fit perfectly. But once I get around to it I'm going to try the APC NS which a lot of people have recommended and seem like a good way to go - so I'd check those out. I can't fit into anything under a slim-straight and usually a straight fit is perfect and amply snug. I also have a pair of Earnest Sewn straight leg jeans that fit perfectly in the thigh that you might check out when they come on sale.

Thanks for the ideas, I'll check those out. I'm not interested in true slim-fit, really, although to be honest that may just be from never having tried on a pair that even came close to fitting. The pair I have don't look baggy on me, just not tight.

EDIT: On Diesel Safados and APC New Standard rises are too low: 10" and 10.25" respectively and I need more like 11-11.5" to not look like an asshole (to myself) with my shirt tucked in.

Maybe I just need to go to Nordstrom or something and try a bunch of stuff on. Anyone have input on the tailor/don't tailor jeans waist question?

I'm not into the slim fit either (mainly because I can't fit it..) but the slim-straight and straight I think are a nice medium. 

 

Understandable. I did notice that, that they have a fairly low rise. I felt kind of at the cusp because I'm 6'2" with long legs so the rise is sort of at a minimum - but I haven't tucked it in so it may be the same as you.

Didn't consider VAT (I'm American). I just ordered my first pair of Kemptons a couple days ago so I can't comment on how well they hold up in the rain just yet. Everything I read about them was pretty positive though.
