You're going to have to look really hard to find linen pants under $100. Linen is expensive. I think my girlfriend got a pair of pleated linen pants from American Apparel. See if you can squeeze in them.

Thanks. I was actually looking at these, if it matters: http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/index.cfm/Shoes-Color_8_Cap_Toe_Boot_293.htm

I'm not particularly interested in the shoes, but I do like the socks.

Is there any brands that make suits/blazers in 34S? I am a pretty small person, and cant find anything that fits me right.

The "Put This On" entry from 4 Feb. 2011, may be of interest to you. It can be found at http://putthison.com/post/3112563558/q-and-answer-where-can-i-find-size-34-suits

I have a beautiful Dark Navy micro herringbone brooks brother fitzgerald suit I just got off the forum brand new unfinished. Im having it altered this week. I purchased it as I will be attending a wedding next month and didnt have a suit that fit well. 

 

I have my shirt (a white golden fleece spread collar french cuff), my cufflinks, my pocket square (white linen), but I just can't figure out what tie to wear. I have a brown (almost grey) Drakes tie (its brown and gray dots but looks like solid brown) but I dont know if a dark brown tie goes with a navy suit. I have a red Brooks Brother Makers Repp solid tie thats really nice but I feel it comes off too "political" for a wedding. 

 

I'd love to go a little monochrome and wear a navy tie, maybe a navy with white pindots tie. But Im afraid it'll come off too matchy. 

 

Any tips? Id like to stay within the solid/stripes/pindot realm of ties and away from patterns or paisleys.

Wear something more cheerful. Dark and sober suit, plain white shirt, and conservative tie would be more suited to a funeral than a wedding. Wear a pink gingham shirt and that brown tie (which does go with the suit- just about anything goes with navy, and brown and navy generally pair well), or the proposed navy one. Or something. It's a happy occasion, have at least one happy element in your attire. You could also try a more interesting tie; a louder stripe could be fun. Navy, green and orange or the like. Or a loud paisley. Or a striped knit.

With a shirt like that one. Plain satin ties are usually too boring for me, but a solid tie, or something close to it, can really anchor a shirt with a bolder pattern.


dgonsh, no comment on your tie since the photo being so far off makes it difficult to tell. Plain navy would certainly work as a fallback if you're uncertain about the tie.

You think lavender check can go well with a navy suit? the suit is almost solid navy but there is a subtle ultrafine herringbone. i dont want to be too printy...

 

would i be best to go with something like this for a tie: http://www.samhober.com/grenadine-garza-fina-solid-ties/navy-grenadine-fina-silk-tie-11.html

Why do you never see a man wear dots like this girl on Guido's tumblr?
