Thank you. That link has a great read.

It is funny how a well made(?) jacket is not naturally rolling. It is maintaining the original crease.

Not quite sure what you mean--do you mean that your jacket's lapel is creased, not rolled? Perhaps it was not pressed properly to begin with, or perhaps it was (unfortunately) not well constructed.

smoke horn buttons, brown horn buttons, tan horn buttons or something else?  

I have both brown horn and tan horn and I think tan horn is really nice looking.

So it is rolling but you can clearly see the original crease still there. Is this a poorly made jacket?

Quick question for all you Noodlers!

 

What tie would you choose for this suit?

 

post #29916 of 37396
Navy or burgundy solids and neats come to mind.

ohai Calypso.  Suit looks summery, and I find box checks pretty loud.  So a Shantung or linen in a solid imo

Easy answer is navy grenadine. But I feel like that could be the answer to most of life's problems.

^^ Brown knit

I think a neat might be too dressy. I think a burgundy or navy repp would be killer, or a textured solid.

Textured solid - Navy/Burg Knit ftw!

Even a repp would be too dressy for a fabric like that. That suit screams for a knit. Any colour goes: navy, burgundy, brown, green, black, mid-blue....

thanks fellas :)

a solid knit or grenadin it is.

post #29924 of 37396
I'm going with a rich, bottle green grenadine.

I'll cop to coming from a "repps with everything" kinda tradition.
