Ideas for my new MTM Suit

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
Im making up a new suit and was wondering if anyone had any ideas. I have about 10-15 suits (all the basics; Navy and Grey notch lapel, Navy and grey peak lapel, a grey DB, grey 3 peice flannel). My last suit I did a heathered blue wide peak lapel with patch side and breast pockets (I know I know) and it came out very nice. It doesnt necessarily have to be CBD but I dont want it to be too fashion GQ-ed with 1.5 inch lapels if you get my drift. Any ideas would be appreciated.

EDIT: Looking for suggestions on styling (which would work together with a certain fabric). For example,
Navy chalkstripe, 3 roll 2, wide peak lapels, ticket pocket, slanted etc. Please post pictures to for reference! Thanks icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I have very similar colors and or fabrications in my suits. I need a navy flannel but after that I would want to do a light grey sharkskin with patch pockets with a 3 roll 2 button, notch lapel, 3/4 lined.

Based on your collection so far I would suggest something visually louder like a blue worsted suit with light grey windowpane pattern or a dark (grey, blue, brown) chalk stripe flannel suit.

For what season?

If it's for fall/winter, chalk stripes on flannel (as suggested above) are always a nice addition.

what about a bird's eye wool suit?otherway chalk-stripes, as said, are a good choice I think.

How about a year round suit like a wool gabardine.

Or a POW or other (maybe slightly more subtle) pattern

I should clarify. Im talking more about style (which of course would work together with a certain fabric).

Something like that, and with stripes a little less bold, I think it would look better. Second one looks nice though. Chalk stripes are great on textured fabrics like flannel... about style, I'd say nothing too fancy. I would go for flap pockets, I think flannel normally calls for patch pockets but the stripes add a "businessy" touch and flaps might be better. And I really like slightly wider lapels on striped suits, though that depends on your physique too...

3 roll 2, peak lapel, ticket pocket, (slanted?)

^ I've edited my reply above. 3 roll 2 with ticket pocket and notch lapel would look nice... I hate slanted pockets, but that's just a personal thing and if you like it of course go ahead smile.gif
