The 40R Hudson is still best unless there's lots of excess in the chest that the photos don't pick up.  The 38 Hudson could work if you eased the waist, but right now it's pulling across your back and, to a lesser extent, at the buttoning point.

38 has a crazy ass shoulder divot, too.

Wow, the 38 is really see-through

If it's a Formosa jacket then don't worry. The divots are likely disappear over time!

More shots of the above 38r Hudson - manager was certain this was best fit, but I was unsure between the 3.

And yes the 38r Havana had a very very open weave.

38r Hudson - different lighting.

Those plain toe shoes posted by VVVBJ are a thing of beauty. I'd get those.

 

I believe the "correct" shoe for a dinner ensemble is a black patent leather "opera pump" with a black grosgrain (or similar) ribbon. However, I don't remember ever seeing anyone wear a shoe like this. As a fellow Aussie I advise you to steer clear of such affectations.

 

I myself, sewer rat with a gold tooth that I am, would probably wear my Carmina black lizard monkstraps with formal wear. Outrageously incorrect, but gloriously FU.

 

AFAIK  it's only/mainly @Sander  who hates whole cuts.  If u go into the shoe-lover parts of the forum e.g. the shoepron thread, the bespoke thread, the Vass thread, the Japanese makers thread  -  you'll find plenty of love for the wholecut.      The truly seamless wholecut  (made from a single circular disc of leather. . Bespoke only...)   is one of the Holy Grails.

Manton was the original wholecut-hater AFAIK

Japan maker thread has some of the most beautiful shoes on this whole site

People have been burned at the stake for less. All your blue suits and jackets and you don't have a midnight dinner. For shame, sir. For shame. (If not clear, joking around...a bit...).

Keep in mind that some Suit Supply salesmen are notorious for trying to get customers to size down.  I’m sure it’s not universal, but some of them seem committed to imitating the photographs on their website where the models are often wearing jackets too small for them.

 

Cheers,

By the way, here’s one short discussion from a number of years ago in which Manton touches upon the wholecut ‘formality’ issue in the context of the lounge suit:

 

Here’s the relevant bit:

 

“a plain cap is more formal than a wholecut, which is a ‘fashiony’ shoe, a recent innovation. At least, that is the way it is in the Anglo-American tradition.”

 

I know he engaged in more extended discussion of the topic elsewhere …

 

Cheers,

I also dislike wholecuts. More than happy to throw in with Sander and Manton on that.

Likewise.
