Of course :).

I'm a fan of going sockless when dressed casually in the summer, but never with a suit.

It is very business-y, but a fine pinstripe is subtle enough I think.  A chalk stripe I'd definitely keep for pounding the boardroom table and shouting "greed is good".  I love that.  Then I go outside and get into my rented Hyundai and everyone think's I'm a dick.  But it's worth it for that moment.

This made me laugh :D

 

I think I get the difference now. So basically something that resolves to a solid from a distance is fine and stay away from the larger chalk stripes. Thanks Mimo!

I wish I would've had that line at the car dealership last week lol8[1].gif

I like this talk of Brown Neats, I need some of these in my life. I'm finally catching up from my vacation expenses so some of these may be in my future.

PS thanks for the clarification on the sunglasses Rudal, I completely missed the idea that it may be a reflection and thought it was a new style of lenses which incorporate a top shade element like wind-shields. Thankfully I was completely wrong.

I need help with ordering the right size. 

I just measured the belt that I have from one end of LEATHER to the other end of LEATHER and it is like 115 cm. wtf?!

"Length measurement is taken from base of the buckle tongue to the second hole"

Rudals the way that Equus recommends measuring is from the base of the buckle (i.e. where the leather stops) to the hole that you use to fasten it.  Take that measurement and add two inches for belt size.

Agreed.  But having checked the websites of many of the usual suspects it seems like blue and burgundy account for about 90% of what’s available.  Hence my question.  :)

 

Cheers,

@Delands, a solid navy suit (or charcoal for a day event) is best. White shirt. Wedding tie (or at least something subtle and tasteful in the silver / grey range). Personally I dislike even subtle stripes outside a business setting. In any event, a navy solid and grey solid suit are critical wardrobe staples regardless of what you end up wearing.

I just received a Sartoria Partenopea suit. I love the fit and quality, but I'm not so sure about the colour. It was advertised as navy, but it is a very, very dark midnight blue, verging on black. It looks black under artificial light, so I'm doubting whether I should keep it or return it. Do you think it is appropriate for wearing at the office at an investment bank?

Here are some pictures, where I compared it to a black tux.

Is the length right????

post #5864 of 37396
Yeah, it completely covers my seat.
post #5865 of 37396

Looks way short and buttoning point looks way high.  Might be the angle or the untucked shirt playing tricks...?

 

I think the color is fine though - very conservative.  It's a good suit (solid dark navy) to have in one's closet
