Nobody should be wearing 2" ties. I only wear 2-75-3" because I'm like 140lbs. Things need to be kept relatively in proportion.

+1

It's about having a proportional tie to match your body type. I'm a bulky guy, so I stay with 3.5" - 4" ties.

only you can answer that, Do you feel hot in it? If so, don't wear it. The fabric composition is not as important as weight and weave and those are not as important as how you feel wearing it.

Heres my two questions im attending a hollywood themed ball , im also helping to organise it. The look im going with is similar to James Mcavoy in attonement.
1. Do i go with the smaller windsor collar or larger Graffton?
2.Do i put bowtie with wing s on top or behind?

If you want to look good wear a spread collar shirt with a bowtie. All else is sub-par. Just my opinion.

thanks for reply but i dont own a stiff spread collar and its not really the look i want to go for . As most people attending will do new hollywood (think brad pitt,george clooney) i want to do an old hollywood style.

They're quite slim fit, more like black label than white label.

How much can a tailor take a suit in and can they do it on the torso or am I stuck with a 38, 40 whatever?
post #15506 of 33081
They can't take in a chest, but they can the waist quite a bit.

Thanks, I'll just buy it and take it to my local tailor then, see what he says. Should be alright though. I'm guessing they can shorten the arms to more or less anything, right?

Yep.

Hi,

 

This is my first post on this forum, but I've been lurking here for a couple of months.

 

I have a question: is the sleeves on this jacket too short? My wife thinks they are, but she knows nothing about suits, and I'm not sure what to think.

 

Relevant information: I plan to use the suit for job interviews. I want it to look fairly conservative, but still a little fashionable. It's a hickey by Hickey Freeman suit, in navy. Sorry the photos aren't better, but hopefully they're good enough.

 

If the sleeves are too short, how much should I ask the tailor to add?

Take a photo standing naturally. My impression based on this is no, but some people like only about 1/4" of cuff to show, you have about 1/2" there, which, imo is just fine.
