Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 1359

The jacket with the peak lapels definitely looks more interesting than the grey suit. Get what you will wear.

Yeah. Even with all my blue jackets, that blue peak lapel will get more wear than the gray suit. But if were to ever get a gray suit, it would be something like that.

Or a houndstooth. A nice gray houndstooth. That would definitely do the trick for me. I'll keep an eye out. Perhaps next time I'm in Seoul....

I'm about to start a thread on wardrobe building philosophies, including but not limited to the idea of having a uniform within the context of classic menswear. I am sure you'll have some interesting things to say, Mr. Blue Jacket.

I'll contribute.

Awesome. Just started the thread. I'm sure there is a range of opinions on this stuff.

What's wrong with the fabric?
post #20379 of 37396
DC SuSu store had some horrible fabrics. That is all I can att3st to.

I dropped off 2 suits with my tailor today. She immediately asked if it was bespoke and said it fit really well. I only beef with her is she kept asking me if I really wanted 2" cuffs. She suggested no cuffs to my wife's delight. I told them 1.75". Ready by Wednesday, picking up on Saturday.

Why no 2" cuffs if that's what you want? Because your tailor doesn't like it?

She kept saying 2" is too much.
She first said only old people get cuffs. But there are fashionable people who are into cuffs. I settled on 1.75" cus 2" seemed too much when she showed me. But she left the deciding up to me.

Hmm, so now you've settled on a compromise that makes nobody involved really happy. FWIW, it's cuffs that are too small that look old mannish. Higher 2" cuffs give a more dynamic impression.
Go back to your tailor and demand 2" cuffs, dammit! smile.gif
