While I'm not religious about the no dark suede before jabor day rule, these shoes are not the best choice against the rest.

On a personal sidenote, are you an academic at one of the colleges?
I've been to Oxford once for three weeks of language school and stayed at Hertford College.
Had one of the greatest times of my life over there and am still in love with the city.

You should play with scale.

Everything you have on today has a small scale. Small tie pattern, small striped suit, small striped shirt.

Try varying it a bit. Even a solid shirt would improve this look. But with everything do small, it looks too busy.

I like the brown suede. It grounds the rest of the outfit.

You make a good point there. I personally like using collar pins on oxford collars because they are not as stiff.

As long as he's not buttoning the collar points, I don't think it's horrible for Tirailleur to use the pin with that shirt. If he insists on using the pin, that is...

On a single breasted suit I've come to learn to choose ones buttoning button at the slimmest part of ones natural waist. But since DB suits usually run shorter and have closed quarters I'm not sure if this rule applies anymore.

So I'm asking someone who has dabbled in bespoke double breasted suiting to shed light on my acknowledged nescience...worship2.gif

For DB, there are lower cuts and higher cuts, both with be found in Mr. claymore'spgotos and the armory boys.


In my opinion, DB only looks good if they are cut slightly longer than single breasted. Short makes the proportion bulky.

Button position is still on natural waist, just further away or closer to create a close or open chest.
