Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 2453

post #36781 of 37396
Since this thread is back from the dead, I'm beginning to plan out my second Kent Wang commission, this time for a fall/summer suit. This thread did a wonderful job of helping me with my S/S suit and I'm always looking for advice, good natured or otherwise.

My current F/W suiting is:
Blue checked jacket
Brown cashmere jacket
Navy "four season" traveler suit

I'm thinking of ordering either a navy/dark blue flannel suit, or maybe something tweed that I could break up and wear casually. I love the look of gray tweed suits and gray tweed jackets with jeans.

I'd go with a flannel navy BlazerSuit

I'm a fan of Ex Officio sport mesh boxer briefs. Right now they're $31 a pair on Amazon, but I've gotten them as cheap as $18, I think.

What's the hot climate equivalent of flannel?

Linen and linen blends. Pure linen is fantastic. Light and breathable but wrinkles easily. A good wool/linen blend is the best of both worlds.

Fresco, linen, seersucker.

I was thinking more formal so it could be used in a not-ultra-conservative-business context, and a versatile blazer. Wool/linen would probably work.

And fresco may be the best bet, but I have trouble finding fresco in my size (42S, generally).

 

Thanks both of you for the suggestions. Other than the color, what makes a BlazerSuit? Soft shoulder, maybe besom pockets? Preference towards a specific type of button?

Not sure whether shoulder structure enters into the equation in terms of the formality or whether that's more of a personal/body-shape driven choice (or both), but typically the blazersuit will have patch pockets and I went with dark brown horn buttons on mine. This is fresco.

I was thinking that it may look strange to have a very structured shoulder if wearing the jacket with odd trousers. I like the one you're wearing, MTM?

Yep, MTM. From a tailor in Japan.

I have blazers and suits but no blazersuit. Doesn't sound like anything I would recommend. Patch pockets are way too casual for me during the week.

Let me get this straight: you wear black nylon underpants?

Don't knock it til you try it.

My wife has an online women's underthings business. A shocking portion of her customers are men purchasing nylon undies. She's learned not to judge
