Before reading enough SF threads, I purchased a 1940's Brooks Bros tuxedo jacket. I thought I was really smart- it had all the proper blacktieguide features to be classic, and it was cheap!
After receiving the jacket, I started the hunt for matching pants... and found SF threads advising me to never buy separates, as I'll never match the wool colors. The posters in those threads were right. I've had no luck thus far.
Advice please! I think I have three options:
1. Resell the jacket, and start over in my hunt for a matched set.
2. Drag the jacket from formalwear store to store, hoping to find the right pants.
3. I'll be in HK in about a week. If I brought the jacket, might one of the tailors be able to match the fabric?
Thanks in advance for your advice. Yes, I now know what a fool I've been in this matter.
