Sorry about the last one. Burgundy doesn't "shop" well onto this pic.

I like the first one a lot, and the second one is growing on me. Now all I have to do is find a sweater that first color.....

It depends on the pattern for me. I have small-patterned neats that I would not hesitate one second to wear with an SC and I have others that just scream "suit". Can't really pinpoint what's different between the two, it's more of a gut feeling...

yeah, same here. i think i pretty much agree with diaz as far as general rules go, but i dont think i really have a personal hard and fast rule for this, as far as SC/blazer and what neat i do and dont wear. i take into account the fabric textures, the colors, the scales of the tie and jacket (if the jacket is not solid) patterns, and if i think its a go, ill rock it. for better or worse.

Yeah, photoshop only helps insofar as it approximates stuff you can actually buy. I think any medium brown would work though.

Hello friends.  If you'll forgive the diversion, I'd like to share this.  Back in the 1930s, it seems men even dressed well to be arrested.  May the three piece live on long and proud.

Quite so, Noodles.  

 

I was saying a while back (I think to the hapless "Mickael" or someone similar), that the "classic menswear" most generally admired in here - IMO - goes back to the 1930s.  That seems to be something of a turning point, not only in establishing certain styles, but also in there being quite a variety and freedom: double breasted stripes from the 20s still around, different weights, colours and textures, and all kinds of lapel shapes (some interesting ones in those pictures.  The trousers would also be short enough for SF approval in many cases, although some (like me) prefer just a little break!

 

Also, pre-dating WWII, the three piece was still very much the norm.  I heard a story that it was WWII when the English started having their suits made without a waistcoat to save scarce cloth, and took to wearing sleeveless jumpers and cardigans underneath instead, or nothing at all.  Certainly that seems to have been when the waistcoat started to vanish from even the standard business suit.  I'd be interested to know if anyone else has heard that explanation.

What I wonder now is with every maker going trimmer and trimmer on these suits, whether that will have an impact on suits for good. I am hoping it is just a fad and it'll go away. There's a difference between a good fitting suit and a slim fit/trim fit suit, IMO. I hope the suits don't lose their masculinity.  

 

Sincerely, 

Noodles.
