Which colors for pants are safe to wear for short guys besides dark (blue or black) colored pants. 

Short guys are often recommanded to wear dark (blue or black) colored jeans/pants. I currently have a wardrobe consisting out of these items but I'm wondering which colors are also safe to wear since it gets a bit boring?

Wonderful, you answered two questions - so I should button, and get more suppression smile.gif

I've heard both 'rules'. I have no idea whether either is correct.

I bought this single Holland and Sherry button on eBay. Can I use it as the single button on my black tuxedo? Right now it has a single satin faced button.

I think you can wear the same color pants as the non-vertically challenged without fear. Black and navy aren't very versatile. Wear did you hear about these "safety" concerns?

I am certainly not an authority, but visually, the "buttoned" look makes more sense to me.

I have commissioned a bespoke black suit - 2 button, single-breasted, flat-front, slim but not skinny. I'm a part-time musician, and I'll use this suit for my gigs and maybe also for parties/going to the opera/etc.

 

It isn't a tuxedo, and I don't want to pretend it's a tuxedo, so I'm thinking I should inject a little flair into the suit. I've considered putting contrasting stitching on the cuff buttons, or contrasting thread underneath the double-vents. Thoughts? I don't want to be too ostentatious; I just want to add a little sprezz to maximize the bespoke benefits and to show that I'm not pretending it's a tux.

 

Any opinions/suggestions about this would be much appreciated. smile.gif

 

 



Maybe some mother of pearl buttons? Makes it very different from a tuxedo. And keep it 2 button as that steers well clear of tux territory.

I have an event coming up and was wondering if anyone could advice me on how I should tie a knit tie

i.e. this: http://www.thetiebar.com/tie-bar-product.asp?pn=22529&orderPageReturn=%2FcategoryPages%2FAll_Ties.asp&pg=1&categoryIds=31,62,70&optionValueIds=

knit tie vs traditional woven...100% silk so it is rather cumbersome the last time I tried and turned out awful

Would just like to keep it simple, will be worn with a spread collar


edit: found this through some searches

The four in hand is the only correct knot for knit ties, according to Michael Drake, Alan Flusser and a variety of other sources.

Does anyone know where one can order small plastic clips of the type Kent Wang uses for his carousel pocket square rack? See: http://www.kentwang.com/accessories/pocket-square-rack.html

are these shoes appropriate to be worn with a navy suit or are they too casual?

Is there something weird about the way Epaulet measures rise? It says 12.5 for the Rudy cut which would put them at about my sternum.

There is front rise and back rise. Also, a google search will find conflicting instructions on how to measure. One says measure to the top of the waistband while the other says to measure to the bottom.

Nice idea. I like it.

I want to upgrade my black suit to a proper tux for black tie parties, but can't justify the expense of a bespoke one at this time so was thinking to get a mtm one from TaT, any other suggestions in the sub 1k range? I prefer a shawl db but understand that isnt going to happen at this price point, so I will just go with a classic sb shawl.

Ask in the Epaulet thread, they'll know.
