Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 2321post #34801 of 373963/4/16 at 12:20pmpost #34802 of 373963/4/16 at 12:24pmpost #34803 of 373963/4/16 at 12:27pm
Hi guys. Just got back from tailor (alterations) to pick up my jacket. Let's just say he needed to do some serious surgery. Does anyone see anything terribly wrong with this jacket, so that it needs to be burned (except that guy, can't remember his nick, who always wants to burn everything)? Thankspost #34804 of 373963/4/16 at 12:48pmpost #34805 of 373963/4/16 at 12:55pmpost #34806 of 373963/4/16 at 1:19pmQuote:
As I've mentioned before elsewhere, this is the principle I was brought up on. It would be naive of me, however, not to recognize that there are generational differences in attitude; a lot of younger guys see braces as an accessory intended to be seen, or at least to be see-able, as it were, under some circumstances.
Many younger American males, if they do not come from a family were dress matters, get their sense of what is appropriate from the images of popular culture, beginning with TV. American police procedurals are one reason why for decades we have seen so many guys wearing loosened ties with the collar unbuttoned and visible suspenders: it's how the good guys dress when they're hanging out in the squad room.

Cross post, looking for help and opinions!
I'm looking for some worsted flannel too, but can't seem to find anything.
I'm looking for a bold stripe with char or slate navy background. but all I see are relatively subtle stripes and/or dark sombre navy.
Closest I've found look-wise is this:
But I want something less saturated. I've found some in Huddersfield that seem close, but they are too heavy for my liking.
I guess it'd be something like this:
I also like a more densely packed stripe like the first one. Could this just be normal navy and it tends to look darker on swatches, and I am probably alright just picking up any navy chalkstripe in worsted flannel?
Somehow also tempted by this, but it doesn't look very flannelly at all:
I think braces being seen is fine, but in my experience it's not good if its only purpose is to accessorise because then you come off as too tryhard/hipster. Unless you're going full camp I guess, which is not a CM thing. Then again I feel the same about fun socks.post #34809 of 373963/5/16 at 5:35amQuote:
Did I say a Canadian suit had to be made of denim? No. Are any of my suits from Paul Stuart made of denim? No. Was I working with the witticisms and cultural assumptions of other people when I made my remark? Yes. So there!post #34810 of 373963/5/16 at 6:09amIso - H&S classic Flannels(though I'm not sure if it's as bold as you want)
10/11 oz worsted flannel. They have one with wider stripes (1' or so apart), and one with narrower stripes (.5' or so apart)
They also have a few in the heavier weights too
If you have money to burn, lesser golden bale has some nice ones . DiCaprio from wolf on Wall Street wears LGB for his chalk stripe suit.
Honestly - you should just ask your tailor. Most mills have something like that (fox has many books that aren't online, etc)

OK, OK... It is amuzzing to hear Canadians and Americans making jokes of each other, especially as new comers don't see much difference.
BTW, your vocabulary is so rich, I am constantly reminded that English is not my native language. Witticism...
