I don't mind the width.  I really like their ties.  The value is decent I suppose.  I would like cheaper, if it's out there.  He was right about the pocket squares from gagliardi.  I ordered them yesterday, so I haven't seen them in person. But most are 100% wool and the designs are similar to suitsupply.  They are only about $15 a piece, shipped free.  I ordered 10 to get the express shipping.  Hopefully they are nice.

I have this Lazio, and I was curious if it would be a good look to pair with either of these waistcoats:

 


Is there an SF consensus on this?  I would assume that the consensus is that it's fine.  I don't know, though.  I can't see anything wrong with wearing an odd vest under a suit.

It's doesn't seem very common. I personally love it but don't see a lot of examples out in the wild or even here on Styleforum.

 

It really is something that stands out over regular a 2-piece or 3-piece suit, so if you think you'll outshine or take attention away from the groom then it's probably not the best idea.

 

Either of those waistcoats would look excellent with that suit; I prefer the one on the left however.

Wool squares quality are all about the same from what I've seen. I'll post some pics of gagliardi if anyone is on the fence.

Do you know of a company that makes ties similar to Suitsupply for less?  

post #11001 of 13751
I'd have to look into it. I haven't really looked at ss ties as I usually go Hermes or ferragamo animal/fun prints or solid knit.

I know you weren't asking me but I would definitely recommend Berg & Berg. They're a couple bucks less and much better quality compared to SuSu. The only reason why I don't use them is because they only come in 8 cm but I prefer 9 cm.

I like to use them a lot. Certainly that is not really seen here but that doesn't mean anything. If European Royalty use it, why can't you :P

Berg and Berg sounds like a law firm.  I just looked at their stuff.  Ties look great, but they are not really less expensive.

Most of the SuSu ties I saw were between $69 and $79 and Berg & Berg are $67 to $73. So let's call them even?

post #11006 of 13751

So I think I'll go with this one. Any recommendation to what color/pattern tie I should get?

EDIT: Sold out in a 44 online

Berg and Berg ties look great.  Have you tried them?  Is the quality good?

Yes a good friend of mines owns a few of them so I've felt them in person. I've also tried to knot a SuSu tie and can clearly say that B&B was superior in every way. YMMV

I just received the navy suits I mentioned a couple of pages back. I actually went for the York instead, as the measurements felt more adequate.

I ordered sizes EU 42 and 44 (that'd be US 32 and 34). The thing is that the size 42 jacket fit me very well, the trousers on the other hand were a little too tight. Although, the 44 trousers fit me fine.

Is it possible to alter the 42 trousers to a 44? It seems like there's enough fabric for that. Also, do you guys know if the rise differs between the two sizes (42-44)?

I think tailoring a full 2 inches is going to be tough there is only so much fabric along the seam of the pants. If they don't fit it is best to just return and save yourself the headache of getting them altered and they still don't fit right.
