I would be deadset against it because I don't like pairing black with navy. Those are black stripes right?

Black shoes, socks to match the pants.

If you get your suits from a tailor, should you always return to that tailor if alterations become needed (so that he can modify your pattern)?

Is £139 a good price for a Kiton shirt?

It's probably less than half price.

Yes 50% off in the Kiton concession in Harrods. Didn't know if that was an amazing price or just so-so

I've recently lost two more pounds. I'm now at 332 lbs. I'm 35 lbs lighter altogether since my highest weight was 367 lbs in late 2009. Is it okay for a big and tall man like me wearing plaid, or bold stripes. And even narrow neckties from 2" to 2.75" wide?

Are you talking about a MTM suit? If so, I would go back to them for alterations since they probably won't charge you for them. There is, however, a good chance they aren't updating their pattern at all, unless of course, you request it.

Try a pink shirt with light grey suit!

Light blue solid or micro-check shirt.

I would wear dark brown with the grey. You could go oxblood with either. And socks in a similar shade to pants.

I wouldn't.

No or very slight break is fine. The ankle thing is definitely a fad.

I wouldn't.

What do you mean I would't like wear plaid or bold stripes or trendy narrow neckties like you see on GQ Magazines recently?

I'd avoid the narrow ties but stripes should be fine.
post #15494 of 33197
Those narrow ties are trendy and very 1960s like Mad Men for example. I've got a few neckties that are under 3" inches wide. One from Brooks Brothers, Two from Barney's Co-Op, and one from Gitman Bros. which I purchased the latter at David Lindsey Clothiers months ago.

Can anyone comment on the fit of Barba dandy life shirts, say compared to regular Barba dress shirts
