post #3286 of 3615

I purchased the Zenga in the MTO as my first summer blazer (have a Navy for the winter) but have no pants to wear with it.   What do you guys recommend picking up for pants to go with it?  

post #3287 of 3615

Which Zegna?  Various shades of grey, and brown/tan will be the best if you bought that beauty guncheck.

I forgot there was more than one Zegna.  I got the Indigo.

Light grey, but better yet cream, or off white for a true summer look

I'm in the same boat. I ordered the same jacket.

I think the wool mohair trousers being made would be pretty much ideal. See the swatches here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/69315/www-ehaberdasher-com-affiliate-page/3210#post_8440112

As @Ebichuman mentioned, white or cream would look great, but I would find that a little too flashy for work. Light Grey would be safe and versatile. I thought the grey fresco in the post I quoted to above could be OK, but would prefer lighter.

I also had my tailor make me some light blue pants, which may have been a terrible idea in retrospect. Lol. Too pitti-esque.Pic of possibly offensive pants here : http://www.styleforum.net/t/245529/a-sam-and-david-hober-tie-appreciation-thread/6480#post_8478186

I agree I think the wool mohair looks great.   The grey fresco had so much potential but I think you are right lighter would have been better.   @eHaberdasher, do you think that the grey fresco color is accurately depicted in the swatch photos?

Did any of the Bella Spalla Jacket Pre Orders extra cloth make it into OTR?

It is on our screens for the most part, but screens vary so much from ipad, to mobile phone, to laptop... so we just do the best we can.

FYI got a new sample model for Bella Spalla which has a completely natural shoulder and posted a quick pic on instagram:

What are your thoughts of wearing the grey fresco with the Zegna indigo?

Any way to pre-order these, I'm thinking I need to navy hopsack too to go with the hopsack pant?

Nice looking.  Is this a sample for the future or is this what the current MTO is going to be? -

Good afternoon gents. After working my way through law school with some OTR crap from Macys, I am about to enter the big bad world of oh-god-I-better-impress-this-client lawyering work. None of my suits fit very well, I am considering scrapping the whole bunch.

 

After much research, I am landing on Benjamin as my suit of choice. I have found a local tailor with good reviews and who a buddy goes to who I will take my suit(s)? to. I am in the market for two suits, both for business, probably navy and charcoal. Prefer to spend $400-600 each, plus tailoring. This puts me square into the Benjamin camp, for the best quality in that price range. 

 

That said, I would love some recommendations. I have a stocky/athletic build (aka, used to be an athlete, now I have a belly) and I am 5'10 at about 215lbs. My chest is a 46 and waist is 38-40, depending on how good dinner was last night. With those measurements, I arrived at the Benjamin Nobile, which is for sale at ehaberdashers. I found the 45/46R sized Benjamin Nobile comes paired with 40.5W/35L trousers, which are probably a perfect pair. 

 

My question for you all is, which suit model of the Benjamin line is going to work best for a guy with a dad belly? I would prefer a suit with a shorter jacket and two vents, which I think the Nobile works. Is there another brand or line of the Benjamin that I am overlooking? Thank you very much!

You could go Benjamin, and get great value for money. Or, you can blow away your clients and become partner in two years by wearing Tom Ford. The choice is yours...
