If the leg opening is that wide, they need to be long enough to touch your shoes.

Understood. Thank you, sir. Could I get away with a more aggressive taper on these, or would it start to look a little bit silly if I went for a smaller let opening?

I would say if you're tapering the leg opening, you should narrow the whole leg a bit. I would also go slightly longer on the jacket.

Too warm for a suit really. But I wanted to premier a gift from @upr_crust. Happy smurf day to all of you.

 

 

 

 

A gift that I think I will enjoy for a long time (bracers).

Hi I see a lot of guys wearing Suitsupply. Can anyone tell me what their alterations service and MTM is like? As they are opening in Dubai soon. Thanks

Good eve gents,

 

Speaking of the 'Northern Lights" look. Someone had given me this skinny tie and I thought that I would try and experiment to see how it could work with a sportcoat and odd trousers. I personally feel that it's too skinny for my tastes as it is very difficult to get a dimple with such a thin tie. Unfortunately I had no idea my shirt collars were folding up while taking the photo as I had forgotten to put on my usual brass stays when I left my flat, so my apologies on that as well. I also think the right sleeve could be lengthened just a wee bit more. Tie is black and trousers are a charcoal windowpane.

Tried to take a photo off a mirror but I had forgotten to clean it. Apologies for the smudges.

 

 

Trouser pattern

 

 

 

 

 


With many thanks,

Hal

@Hal Freeman sorry, but you've got to let this tie go. It looks silly compared to your frame and the rest of the outfit.

 

In general I think, that every tie should be at least 8 cm wide (with perhaps knits being the sole exception) if it is to be worn by a grown man.

8cm seems to be what I think is the bare minimum as well. 

 

@blekit I would suppose so sir. I've been thinking of letting it go too, considering I didn't really purchase it, as it was given. Ah well. I thought I would give it a try but your response just reaffirms my initial concerns when my mate handed me his tie, and that it is simply too thin.

 

I suppose I wanted a second opinion. Nonetheless, I do appreciate the input and I will never probably wear this tie again to be honest haha. Thank you sir.

I would agree with Sugarbutch here. The pants as they are now are a little too short. You can choose two ways to go about that, either more aggressive taper (probably needs to be combined with narrowing the leg opening as well), or just keep the pants as they are but let them down an inch or so. Personally I would go with the second option. That's a classic BB cut and you have the body type that can get away with a looser cut. Perfect to wear with a knitted sweater and possible a slightly heavier jacket, like tweed, cashmere or a thick wool fabric.

 

Btw, your colour combination on that fit was really on point.

This is a bit of uncharted territory for me.. not completely sure about the fit and profile, or how tapered I should/shouldn't had gone. Little breezy today, so it was hard to get a clean drape. Thank any and all, and I hope you all had a good weekend!

Excellent fall/winter trousers. Pleats are fine. I would lower the hem closer to the shoes personally.
