Good pairing. Alternatively, charcoal gray pants would provide contrast which would be good for evening wear.

I really dislike the clicking sound that it makes. Rubber ones does not make that sound?

I'm looking for a suit for residency (medical) interview and have always been told only a navy or charcoal/gray suit. I really like this one

do you think that's navy or probably too bright/non conservative?

You can't really tell true colour on an internet photo, you would need to see the cloth in person.

 

However, the peak lapels are definitely non-conservative, and IMO disqualify it as an interview suit. I also notice it's a wool-linen blend, so the fabric may well be too casual. It needs notch lapels, lose the ticket pocket, and go to true navy in worsted wool.

Saw these photos and noticed that I have quite a bit in my wardrobe that would work well with a color like this.  I also just need more green in my wardrobe as it looks good on me.  I've considered the Epaulet rivet ducks (first pic), but they seem too heavy.  Their walt twill trousers are more what I'm looking for, but they only come in a much cooler, technicolor emerald green.  Any suggestions?  Thanks guys.

 

 

Any other non-Epaulet option on this?

Taking in shirts is a common and easy alteration, they'll look fine.

Can a suit jacket be successfully converted to a waistcoat? I mean, can it be dissasembled and pieces of it be taken for the front part of a waiscoat, to which would be added the appropriate material for the back panel?

Thanks!

I'm looking to get a bespoke suit in grey, it needs to be conservative enough for business meetings and potentially job interviews in future i.e. it should be the most conservative suit in my wardrobe, and I want to stick to details that won't go out of style in 10-20 years. I'd be going 2 button single-breasted, notch lapels, twin vents, 2 flap pockets. I want to get opinions on:

 

1 - colour. Should I stick with charcoal grey, or is mid-grey formal enough?

2 - pattern. Other than pure solid, what patterns would still be acceptable for a business/interview suit? For example, would the pattern in the photo below still be conservative enough? I work in London and want something that won't make me stand out as too casual when I have to deal with uber-conservative lawyers, bankers etc.

3 - trousers. I've mostly had unpleated flat-fronts that sit closer to the hips, and I'll be ordering two sets of trousers with the suit. So, I thought I would try one pair tailored to sit at the natural waist, with turn-ups (cuffs) and pleats. Any suggestions on what details to go for?

Just go plain solid for your first bespoke.
