Navy blue is the most versatile you can buy IMO. Maybe a mid blue if you attention starved wink.gif

If you want to be different, purple maybe?

Would it be a nice business casual/just casual sports coat for some years or does it look a little too trendy (thin lapels ?, high button stance?). Fabric is like a very fine velvety corduroy. They call it sarge but I don't think that's very accurate.
Thanks.

Any answers?

Also, I'm thinking about this Herring shoes from their Graduate Line as a nice winter shoe to wear with grey flannel or worsted wool slacks, khakis, etc. What do you think ? Is that waxed leather in fact corrected leather?

looks good but way too short... is it just the model or are the jackets made short (to be trendy?)
check the coat length if available
i don't think the lapels are overly skinny

I like the idea of purple, however my date is wearing a plum dress. Is it a taboo to match your date?

I am not an expert, but some may consider it a little "corny" if you will. I don't mind matching my wife at formal events, and we seems to like similar colours. (blues mostly)

Ask your date what she thinks too. Don't you care more about her opinion then a bunch of random guys on the internet anyway? wink.gif

I have to wear a suit to an internship each day and since I mainly hang out on the other side of the forum I had to go out and buy a few. No problem there. However, with the winter months coming up I'll have to wear something heavier than just a suit jacket. The thing is I don't own any coats that really fit over a suit jacket, nor do I want to spend any more money on clothing specifically for this temporary stint. I have a Canada Goose bomber that I generally wear, but like I said, won't work unless I don't have my jacket on due to it being too bulky under there and the jacket getting wrinkled and what not. What options do I have then? Just carry the suit on my arm? Toss it in a bag...gently? My commute is just a 30 minute walk, or 20 minute bus ride when the weather really doesn't suit my short stroll to work.
Thanks in advanced.

If you are not opposed to getting something new, there are plenty of coats that can pull double duty. Depending on how cold it gets where you are , a toggle coat might like a good choice, or a barn jacket or Barbour-type coat. It just needs to cover your suit coat (i.e. over you ass). You could also wear a down vest over your suit - probably not approved in this forum, but that seems to be in fashion nowadays.

Thanks. I think it covered my rear when I tried it at the shop but I'll check again and make a decission.
Any info on the "waxed leather" on those Herring shoes.

Hey guys, new user here - long time reader - but had a quick question (made my own thread, didn't see this earlier)

 

But anyhow, I just picked up two pairs of bucks:

http://www.zara.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product/us/en/zara-us-W2011/130507/467086/WASHED%2BSHOE

and

http://shop.lacoste.com/Lacoste-Mens-Sherbrooke/dp/B0051V1WVY

 

I'm wondering what are some good things to wear them with (i.e. types of jeans, khakis/chinos, what color shirt/blazer) - I really struggle with some of these things! I'm not sure the blue ones are worth keeping...

 

Thanks!

Hi everybody,

How would you recommend I accessorize this suit (shirt and tie - colours and patterns)? It's a flannel wool.

Thanks!230

For starters, use fewer accessories than that guy... sheesh...

I'd go with a pale blue shirt, interesting pocket square, no tie or lapel pin.

I'd wear a solid shirt. If you want a more "fun" shirt, then a shirt with either a much smaller or much larger pattern.
With a solid shirt you can go for any tie as long as its pattern is sufficiently different in scale from the suit's.
The tie has to be at least 3" wide, preferably 3.5". Look at those lapels! Also, a knit tie or a paisley would look marvelous.
Stay with a simple white linen pocket square for now. Since you've asked this question, you're likely not ready to add another color and pattern to this already loud outfit.
No lapel flowers, tie clips or tie bars, please.
