The mass market knows about Suit Supply?

I see what you mean, jrd, but it did not strike me as too short when I looked at the picture. It could also be the angle. It does look like a probably covers his behind, which is an acceptable length.

As someone whose first suit was a Men's Wearhouse getup (judge as harshly as you want, I still gets the heeby jeebies thinking of it lol) that barely covered the top of my backside, I think we can lay that blame on far more than SS's doorstep ha

What's the pros and cons of half vs fully lined wool trousers? Does the latter stop the trousers from flapping around? Keeps them warmer?
post #31506 of 37396
Warmth. Bagging at the knees.
Leg hair poking through if open weave.

See above. Also, doesn't full lining hold the trouser legs in place better than half lining and thus eliminates some of the problem of flapping trouser legs? Or is hem guards my only option here? Cause I'm not sure Luxire offers that together with a military hem. They didn't answered when I raised that particular question in their thread.

Cons: feet can catch on linings when pulling pants on and off, wears pretty warm

Noodlers, a genuine inquiry for your thoughts. I've recently purchased on sale some navy suede bluchers from Barney's house brand. I admit it was an impulse buy due to the price. I recognize that the season for these shoes has perhaps passed but I am seriously stumped in how to wear them. Any ideas?
post #31510 of 37396
Casually. With khakis/chinos or moleskin... and a plaid shirt and a knit. Or a blue OCBD and a country SC that jives with the pants.
post #31511 of 37396
I figured as much. Pretty futile to pair with a tie I would imagine.
post #31512 of 37396
I bet @GusW would have a suggestion as to how to successfully wear them with a tie, something colorful and fun, but its not what I would envision buying those shoes for.
post #31513 of 37396
I'd have to see a pic of them to offer a good suggestion.

They are a more casual shoe so mix them with more casual elements - knit tie rather than a fancy silk, khakis, white or natural jeans, maybe a sweater or cardigan, a more casual sport coat like tweed would be very nice. etc...

They might look great with a tan suit and rep or knit tie.

Thank you.  They are these:

That looks fine @Isolation and don't taper the waist.

I do not believe SuSu is well known in the U.S. My guess is that an avg American will go to a BB store IF they wanted a nice suit.
