 Rest assured I am not Noodles but I sure have learned a ton from his thread.  I left the 40R at the tailors today and the 38R is going back.  Thank you Gents!

Did you check the measurements before taking it to the tailors?

I didn't check the measurements.   I just left the one that was slightly bigger which I labeled in fit pics above the 40R.  What am I missing?  Does the jacket not fit?

Bit of an inside joke, I think.:)

Ah ok, I almost had a picnic attack as I thought @Claghorn was saying the soft shoulders made me look too much like a pear and I should search for a more structured jacket, phew.....

Pear shaped is the new v-shaped.

Hello everyone, I am getting a new suit and can't currently afford more than one but I am planning to spend a fair amount on it. I have decided on blue but I am not sure how dark it should be, specifically, I like the one in this picture but I know it is lighter than the all purpose darker navy that is usually recommended. I need it for internship interviews, formal student events and club meetings and career fairs for management consulting and investment banking. Would this color be generally appropriate for these things or would it be too distracting and should I get a more neutral navy? Is there a color that you would recommend for these needs over navy? Thank you all.

So he is the brains behind this little ditty, eh?

 

Synthesizer to tickle the pineal gland (Click to show)

 

I think that when the world ends and we are besieged by disintegration-ray toting beings from outer space, there will be a last triumphant moment in the standoff where a lone youth with a ghetto blaster plays this tune, and the tension melts, and we take their tendrils in ours, and we dance, tripping the light fantastic under their flying saucers, with the tractor beams repurposed as disco balls and illuminating the charred lawn below. Then they vaporize us anyway.

@SullenAesir. Navy. When you have a larger wardrobe, get a slightly lighter blue in a summer appropriate fabric if you really like the color.
post #37033 of 37396

Agree.  Navy would be more versatile for the purposes described.

 

Cheers,

I am somewhat associated with solid blue jackets of many, many shades.

 

So speaking from experience.

But will your penchant for understatement help or hinder in the world of academia?
