So I just got my suit back from the tailor. Bespoke piece @in sitches and a few others tilted my mind into getting (brown). I got a tweed vest with it, and overall I'm loving the combo (pics soon no worries). BUT...there was some confusion on my order between the tailor and myself. We had discussed side tabs, then the utility of using the trousers as seperates (birdseye heavier weight wool) and we got a little crossed up. End result, I have loops on the trousers. The tailor has offered to modify them to sidetabs...question: should I run the risk of the faux pas of belt loops + vest but have a bit more utility as far as the trousers are concerned or should I take them back in to switch to side tabs.
Note that for work and whatnot, I won't be wearing the vest most of the time. Got as more of a casual piece.
