Nobody is going to search eBay and B&S for you.

Am I missing something? Where did he mention anything about a 'shiny silver' vest? Obviously anything 'shiny' is a bad idea, but I don't see him mentioning anything shiny, unless he's edited his post since you responded?
As you say, a tweed waistcoat can look good, but plain colours such as dove grey, buff or burgundy can also look good in the right combination.

Silver is metallic, and hence, shiny. And I've seen vests I would describe as silver, they are invariably shiny, and they are not pretty. If they were flat, the color would be "gray".

Perhaps it was just some confused language, but the impression I got was that he was thinking of wearing something like this:

Which, of course, looks utterly horrible in any context.

Thanks. The sleeve is not longer but my lower right arm make it look like that (aided by my posture, probably): that will be fixed cutting the left sleeve only.
So, I want to keep it but now I started wondering about trousers to go with it: the cream (or is that tan?) in the picture don't look bad but not great either, I think. My dark browns will be too dark and also my greys, navy, I'm not sure... what would you pair it with ?

I don't usually like seeing suit jackets re-purposed as sport coats, but given that one's fabric, and your intention to replace the buttons with brown horn or something along those lines, I think it'll be okay.
It's arguably slightly shorter on you than some would consider ideal. But not necessarily objectionably short, and in general acceptable jacket length is somewhat shorter today than it once was. Frankly, I don't see the length as being a problem at all.
Other than that, front fit looks about right. No, it's not as tight (or "close fitting" or whatever the currently popular euphemism happens to be) as some would prefer, but I strongly prefer a more traditional, less fitted look, so to me it looks good.
The left side of the jacket and the left sleeve appear longer than the right. It's probably just how you're wearing it, or how you're standing; I doubt whether it's an actual tailoring problem.
Shoulders seem okay, and they're often financially impractical to correct if fundamentally off.
I'd say it's a keeper.

So, the question is about general front fit (if you can tell from these poor pictures) and about using it, as I intend, as a sport coat, changing the buttons for brown horn or something.
The fabric makes me think it won't look as a suit coat but what do you think of it ?

Identifying a pair of shoes

Hey guys,

 

Need help with identifying a pair of shoes I saw on a magazine.

 

Any idea?

How long should a tuxedo jacket be? Is it proper to have the jacket the same length as a suit jacket or is there another standard I should be on the lookout for? In my opinion, a suit jacket should just about cover the butt, but I'm wondering if tuxedo jackets are traditionally just a tad longer. Thanks so much.

Wow, you're right. I musta misread "suit". facepalm.gif

Sorry about that, whoever you are. You didn't deserve all that shit.

A suit vest must be purchased as part of a suit.

Does anyone have experience with the John Smedley Ashmount here? I'm looking to get something better than J-crew and the high v-neck and slim fit is what I want in a sweater, but the $190 is making me pause. I tried ordering on the UK site, which would only be 100 pounds=155 dollars without VAT, but it won't let me checkout. baldy[1].gif

Does anyone have any thoughts about the fit of my suits that I posted earlier in this thread?

Any advice is appreciated! Thanks a lot!

Quick question: would I do better with a white shirt here?

 

DSCN2559 (Custom).JPG

 

Jacket is brownish gray and tie is green wool. Wanted to do a cream shirt with this, but I've been shopping today and found nothing that fits right... so my options right now are either blue or white...

 

EDIT: This is how it looks with white (and no flash):

I'd go with white, especially if it's a suit.

I just purchased a couple of Borrelli Napoli shirts from yoox, and they arrived this afternoon.

The label on these is "London exclusive" with the Borrelli "B" logo above it.

I've never seen this labeling before. Is this some off-brand or made-exclusively-for... clothing?

Where can I find these for not $1000 (i.e. <200)?
