Thanks for the advice guys.

Trying a suit with a jacket that's longer in the body than I'm used to. It's black and I don't intend to attend any funerals anytime soon, so I guess it qualifies as a streetwear suit. Would wear with a t-shirt or buttoned shirt with no tie, not necessarily the ones in the pics though.

Thoughts on the suit, proportions etc.? All feedback/criticism appreciated.

Thread Starter 

proportions seem fine to me, it looks like a fairly "classic" 50/50 top-to-bottom ratio. you could easily wear that in a regular biz/office environment without anyone blinking an eye. If you want to take it out that world, you should definitely try different styling -- maybe ankle boots or a turtleneck or a big scarf or weird shoes. you could even take in the pants if you want to exaggerate the slim silhouette.

By traditional standards that jacket is still cut short so you are fine

looks pretty good to me, you could perhaps hem the trousers a little. i often wear a black suit to art events etc, i like it precisely because it doesn't look like you've come from your job at a law firm. also i recommend listening to ghostface killah's 'rise of the black suits' a couple of times before leaving the house.

Thanks guys.

robinson: Ghostface tip is awesome. Blixa is another inspiration for black, whether it's clothing, risotto or what have you.

I am not really into CM (MC) at all, but because of social norms (I guess would be the reason) I need a suit and some dress clothes for interviews (internships and later on jobs). Should I just go into the CM world (suitsupply) or are there other options? I want to stay under 600 or so for dress shirts, ties, and suit(s).

Buy a proper CM suit for formal occasions (unless your internships and jobs are in the creative field). $600 for a suit and dress shirt and ties is impossible outside of Uniqlo or thrifting. From the sound of it, you will need shoes as well.

will check CM in that case...

post #702 of 898
You can get cm suits for under 600 at suit supply.

I guess you might luck out on a staple color (like navy) at Brooks Brothers during a sale (if you're a less common size). You could get by with Uniqlo everything probably for now for just an internship (depending on industry too I guess).

$600 for a suit + shirts + ties is pretty ambitious. For just the suit it's doable.

Steve Smith or Collectme on eBay will sell staple BB navy / grey suits for $300-350, standard uniqlo shirts for $80 more, then rest on a pair of Meermins or Allen Edmonds. Could be done. Ties you can thrift or get hickey freeman ones at Marshalls for $10-12
