Good options for a blue linen sportcoat under 500 bucks preferably with wider or natural shoulders?

Is it ok to wear a solid navy or navy-based patterned tie with a navy suit? Or is that too much navy?

A solid navy suit with a solid navy tie can be a bit more solid navy than is ideal. Just the same, if the shirt has some interest to it, the combination can work. (And even with a plain white shirt, it's far from the worst look out there.)

A solid navy suit with a navy-based patterned tie is seldom a problem.

Bear in mind, "Is it okay?" is a relatively low standard. Many combinations can look okay, while still being somewhat dull or unimaginative. In some situations, "dull" may not be a bad thing, and personally I'd rather err on the dull side, than on the overly extreme side. Still, most of the time, I try to set my sights at least a little higher than merely "okay."

A navy suit with a navy ground tie is a classic combination.

Interested in a nice leather jacket that is non-biker like.  Any comments on the quality of this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280932513767&clk_rvr_id=370665741747&mfe=sidebar#ht_500wt_898?

How come Yoox never seems to have any men's suits in short sizes? Or am I just searching incorrectly? I've run searches for every iteration of my size (38S) I can think of -- 38S, 38 short, 48S, 48C, etc., but no dice. Is this just a matter of faulty searching, or is Yoox discriminating against handsome little devils like myself by their abject lack of high-quality duds?

How do you determine this based on creasing? Both of the dress shoes I have (AE 9Ds) have a little bit of crease below the laced area.

It's my understanding that both regulars, and longs, far outsell shorts. So probably many retailers choose not to tie up too much money and space on inventory which won't sell as fast as will other types of inventory.

Similarly, it's usually more difficult to find a size 15EEE pair of shoes, than a pair in 10D.

That style of jacket doesn't work very well with tailored clothing. If you're considering it as a streetwear option, you might consider asking about it in that forum.

Creasing in that area is normal and unavoidable. Creasing in the toe box and/or the heel is often an indicator of poor fit. It's often accompanied by some degree of discomfort since ill-fitting shoes are rarely comfortable.

Yes, too casual.

It all depends on your personality and the occasion:

 

*Why is there so much hate towards rubber soles? I'm not talking about the chunky ones like on skechers shoes, but ones that have the same slim appearance from the side as leather soles. I ask this because I'm in Ohio and our weather is crappy about 75% of the time.

 

Vancouver 80% is rain!

There are very stylized leather shoes with their respective “slim sole” like Prada, there are double layer leather soles in shoes like Canali that gives you better value. A leather sole give you support and breathability but it really depend on the quality of the leather. It’s also considered luxurious!

 

Are there rules for matching socks?

 

Depending on the occasion, if you want to be conservative match it with your trouser, if you wanna be cool get a funky colorful one but always try to match it with colors that your outfit may have like you tie, pocket square, shirt, etc so the level of coordination and detail is higher!

 

Break on your trouser?

It really depends on your personality and occasion, the trend is to barely touch your shoe but it has to be an aggressively narrow leg  and well coordinated with a respective shoe otherwise it does not look appropriate.

The only time untucked shirts look good is when they're short sleeved sport shirts, flat hemmed or short, and being worn with shorts or swim trunks. Preferably at the pool or beach.
And before you call me an out of touch old man or something, I'm in my mid 20's.


oops!  I will disagree a bit here.  I sometimes wear shorts, chinos or jeans with the shirt untucked.  I think that, if the shirt has short tails (i.e.falling just a couple of inches below the waist), then it was meant to be worn either way.

 

and before I get marked as a sloppy young man, I'm in my mid 40s :D  (sloppy old man maybe?)
