Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 1543

This thread got started partly because I had like 10 navy ties and nothing else. Plus I was doing other stupid things

What do you'ns think of this stuff?

Exhibit B is my preference, but I like em both, though i'd wear both with grey suits over navy. navy suit, light blue shirt, navy tie can work but it's a bit boring even in conservative workplaces. I'd reach for burgundy or forest green ties (or grey in winter) to wear with navy over navy. My 2c

My 2 cents is the Exhibit A tie is more suited to CBD and the Exhibit B tie is more suited to casual fits, i.e., sc and odd trousers.

Well, fortunately the former is no longer an issue. smile.gif

Part of the problem is with tie producers who continue to produce more blue ties than any other color, by a very large margin.  I’m probably not the only person here to get an e-mail today from Proper Cloth announcing their new spring line of ties.  Here it is:

Honestly, even assuming a very traditional wardrobe of mostly gray and blue suits, blue ties, while they have a place, aren’t nearly as versatile (or, in my opinion, as potentially interesting) as mid to dark brown, exactly what’s not represented in PC’s collection.  And they’re pretty typical in that respect.

 

In a proper world we’d all have more brown ties than blue ties.  And perhaps more green and orange, too.

Thanks all for the feedback.

Before this thread got started, I had all navy based neckties and 38R suits and no oxford shoes and no good shirts.

Caustic, how the heck did you end up with that drink?

Koreatown. Damn good food there too.

It looks like that project is going well. Patch pockets look a bit high, but that he marked them to lower. Is this the same guy JC uses?

Watch for that front balance.  It scissors in a little bit.

 

I'm curious - what is this tailor's process when it comes to fittings?  It's not that common to see a jacket pretty much finished but where front buttoning or pocket placement is not yet done.  Usually the basted takes care of that?

post #23143 of 37403
Honestly, it's further along than I was expecting. I think it's basically MTM, essentially finished except for the buttons/buttonholes. He's going to slim the waist a bit and move the pockets down, too. Also, despite the chalk marks, I'm getting only one button, in a medium brown horn, and one button on each sleeve. (And having him remove the name tag from inside which bugs me for some reason.)

Greg, what makes you think it's scissoring? The overlap of the fronts?
post #23144 of 37403
Murl, no, this is a different tailor.
post #23145 of 37403

Wait, is there a tailor in San Francisco of whom I'm unaware?
