You shouldn't wear a suit jacket with different trousers.

If there's no pants then it's not a suit.

And as Ich Dien says, a suit jacket should only be worn with the matching trousers. Sometimes you can break this rule without most people caring, such as a navy jacket doubling as a makeshift blazer, but certainly not with anything with pin-stripes.

Anyone ordered from Jantzen online lately? I placed an order via email earlier on this week and haven't heard anything.

I've visited the shop several times over the years and had multiple orders with them. Usually I've heard from them by now. Thanks for any help.

I would not wear a pinstripe jacket with anything but the matching pants.

post #10284 of 30945

I'm looking to buy a suit for mainly weddings/funerals as my current one fits horribly I've now found out after some research.  I'm wondering what my luck or options would be at a mens warehouse type store with my size (which I'm not sure of).  I'm about 5'11" 195 athletic build and I'd guess chest would be in the 40-42 range?  Would I have a lot of options finding something off the rack or any suggestions of what to look for or feel, in the fit?  Also wondering what type of quality I would want to get since this will probably only be worn 3-4 times a year. So it doesn't need to be an everyday suit in terms of durability, but I don't want it to look extremely cheap obviously. 

 

I'm hoping to find something decent in the $300-500 range and then bring it to a tailor friend of mine to fit it better.  I don't want a $1500 suit, (actually I do, I just can't afford to pay for one) but just something that looks nice and fits extremely well.  Any advice for a fashion-impaired guy?

Thanks

I'm looking for quality Italian bit loafers that are offered in wide sizes, any suggestions? I am also looking for good suede chukka boots in wide sizes, something with a slender cut. Anything in the $400 - $500 price range for each, thanks.

Pleated are considered at the moment, by the general public, as less fashionable and for older people. But this doesn't mean they can't be worn, you just have to be careful with the cut and make sure they fit well.
