French cuffs are totally fine. As far as ties, with white shirt and navy, you can do almost anything.

Any opinions on what's the use of the extra piece of fabric found inside the back pocket of the trousers?

 

I'm thinking of cutting it and using it as a fabric swatch in order to check combinations with shirt fabrics or ties I intend to buy.

It can be used for reweaving any holes or tears.

They're actually just folded under so I could see what it would look like with the right length. I'm going to take it in today to get the sleeves done but I guess nothing else, which is good!

I would get the back cleaned up a bit, shorten your left sleeve and then that is it. the length is fine.

Nothing is wrong with them, but they are stuffy. If you want to liven up a suit especially for cooler, sunny weather making it looks a bit more casual gives it a new feeling.

You would look better with wool pants, imo.

Hence the caveat about the pants ;) I wore them that day and just threw on the jacket for some feedback. The jacket is cotton twill though so whenever I do wear it I'll most likely go with cotton twill slacks.

Navy blue or olive flannel or tweed pants, plain twill OCBD and that jacket would be str8 pimpin.

Thanks for the heads up, I'm new to the game so I appreciate the pointers

This, on the other hand is not helpful at all.

Need some recomendations for places to look for a gray and a navy suit. I can probably spend around 500 each, and am looking for something of moderate style -- nothing too conservative like brooks brothers or too experimental either. I'm also 6' about 185 with wider shoulders and long torso. Thanks.

J. Crew?

Is jcrew good quality for the price? I always thought people looked down upon it.

I'd like to buy a bespoke suit.  Can someone recommend a good tailor in NYC?  I'd like to set a budget of $2500, but I'll spend more if warranted.

post #12539 of 33455

Seems to be a lot of activity here today....

 

My shoulders measure 18".  When I buy suits, how much allowance should I generally add to make sure a suit fits in the shoulders?  Or I guess I should say, is there a minimum to not go past? So on my 18" shoulders, an 18" jacket is going to be way too tight, but is 18.5 better than 19.25?  Is it just preference?

 

And is it true (I saw it on askandy) that a chest is usually cut 4" larger than your chest measurement?  So my 42' chest (a 42R) would be cut at 46"?

Vahram at Mr. Ned makes mine and they're all kinds of awesome. Besides the high quality, I think his big strength is that he's fluent in a lot of different styles. I go for a Tom Ford-ish Italian cut, but he'll make pretty much whatever you want.
