They may be OK for people like him who have serious chops, but I think he should really caution the folks at home against trying this.

But what's correct? Well coordinated or simply white linen? I opt out of pocket squares, they seem to attract negative attention as being dandyish. I'd go white linen on occassion or if i really wanted to dandy up a tuxedo I would do cream silk, but I just dont see it for CBD.

I think anyone in a suit-wearing environment could wear a square, particularly if they wear it every day and it just becomes part of their look. Yeah, they'll look like they care, but honestly if you're one of the few whose clothes fit, then you already look like you care.

I like the challenge of this thread: to show taste and care, without hewing to the most conservative conceivable choices or the cartoonishness that is regnant in What Are You Wearing Right Now.

I wear a square every day, without remark, and I live in an overgrown beach town where people talk about their "dressy" flip flops.

Is this Chan? I got shirtsleeve on my first Chan order and there was some slight divoting on my left shoulder. The problem was that the sleevehead did not have enough horizontal width. I noted this to them and they just reshaped the armhole/sleevehead for the subsequent order and now the sleevehead is nice and roomy. Wouldn't a similar change solve your problem?

Not exactly sure what the issue is, but it's hardly an issue at all and I'll talk to them and see what makes sense. Thanks for the input.

I don't know who you are getting this coat from but I will say asking an English tailor for a shirtsleeve shoulder is to ask for heartbreak.

Nope. It's good ol' Chan who can do both well enough if not as well as the English and Italians.

Manton,
the Solito suit is awesome, if only he travelled to the US consistently
Is he still around 1300-1400 euro CMT?

It's $1,800 CMT for a jacket, I don't know what he charges for pants, mine are by Ambrosi.
