post #16681 of 31168

Hey guys, can anyone help me find a blazer similar to this one?

 

400

 

 

 

I've tried looking around for similar sports jackets but i just seem to only come across the generic tweed blazers, have had no luck finding anything remotely similar to this one. My budget is around £200.

Would really appreciate any help, thanks.

I have just bought this cotton navy Harrington cotton jacket:

 

 

 

700

 

 

 

My question is. what should i Not wear ( +colours to avoid) with this Navy jacket?  

Are Creme cargos, denim jeans, black chinos all suitable? all with dark brown boat shoes

 

- i've noticed this harrington jacket is quite baggy around the midriff/stomach area,

is this the style? as i might tailor it so its tighter in the stomach region and less baggy

 

 

 

Also on a different note, i just bought this long sleeve checked shirt:

 

 

 

700

 

 

 

And am i right in thinking i shouldnt tuck this into the jeans or chinos/cargos im wearing (with a belt)

As from the pictures i've seen online, they all seem to not be tucked in / freely hanging down

What is best for these style checked shirts, tucked in, or not?

Also , what bottoms are most suitable?

 

Thanks for all opinions

If you sweat a lot, definitely wear an undershirt. Seeing the outline of the sleeves through your white shirt is miles better than pit stains.

 

If you are looking for something invisible, check out this undershirt: http://www.uniqlo.com/us/CPaGoods/itemcode=071299

Get the color that best matches your skin tone, and it will be almost if not entirely invisible.

For you 36R (suit size) guys:

 

How tall are you and how much do you weigh?

Gentleman, I need your help. The Allen Edmond Fifth St boot has caught my eye. I was in the market for an oxford shoe in burnished calf or Walnut when I stumbled across the Fifth St. Currently I already have a derby boot that works well enough for dress and casual (it is black) but I lack a suitable oxford dress show. Do you think I would be better suited to get a dress shoe for now since I already have a pair of boots or say to hell with it and get the Fifth St?

I don'ut usually tuck in checked shirt, because they are usually not made for tucking in. The distance between the last button and the hem isn't long enough to tucked in. If you look at dress shirts and casual shirt (like yours) you can see the difference on the length from the last button to the hem

Clever.  I'll look into it.  It's over 100 degrees here everyday, so yeah, people sweat.

I'll still wear wife beaters on more relaxing days. Showing sleeves really doesn't bother me but showing a crewneck looks terrible.

I was simply concerned with the sleeves.  I will be wearing a tie so it's no big deal on the collar, but I agree that the visible crew neck and shirt combo isn't a flattering one.

I own one charcoal suit, for sombre occasions etc. (and a dinner suit, but that is neither here, nor there). I never wear suits at work (Navy, so always in uniform). Thus, any time I would wear suits the occasion will be social, so I don't need to strictly adhere to business demands. I don't want something trendy and soon to be out of date. I prefer to stick to very traditional styles, as I feel they always look refined and respectable.

Good man. You've come to the right place, then.

What colour would you suggest for a single breasted (very possibly three piece) suit? I'm looking at a shade of grey (no pattern), not too light, and not too flat. This for instance appeals to my eye, but I welcome divergent views.

Navy or midnight blue are traditional colors for after-work suits. The medium-to-dark gray suit to which you linked is not a bad choice and would have more versatility for daytime events than a midnight blue suit.

Also, any particular criticisms of a ventless italian styled suit?

They are somewhat more trendy and less functional than a double-vented jacket. Much better than a single-vented jacket, though.

It really depends on the context in which you will be wearing the boots. Even though boots were originally more formal, they are considered less formal now and might raise eyebrows in the most conservative of business environments. Personally, I prefer boots and can wear them 99% of the time, so given the choice, I would get the boots.

Can someone link me to Vox's thread about coordinating your outfit?

Greetings all.

 

As a newbie in all things style I need some help. I read that after I shave I need to use an aftershave (also a newbie in shaving at 42 years). Does the aftershave have to be the same brand as my cologne? And wouldn't having aftershave/deodorant/cologne  be way over the top and overpower each other? And what deodorant is good? Is the stuff from the supermarket suitable or, again, do I match it with a cologne? And what about powders (talcs etc) do I need that too? I ought some aftershave from the supermarket (Imperial Leather) but even my untrained nose can tell it isn't the full chop, so some ideas please.

you don't need to buy the same brand aftershave as your cream.

aftershave will reduce infections from any cuts, moisturize skin, and add a scent - those 3 reasons are the most important.

The rest is all your preference, I recommend using a mole hair brush with a little cream mixed. Use hot water to loosen your beard and open your pores. apply the cream well and wait a moment. then shave with a safety razor very lightly, use it's weight to make the cut. I have thick hair so i swipe and clean short amounts of the stubble off at a time. Don't rub your face with a towel, gently pat it and do the same after when you apply the aftershave

It was the aftershave & cologne I was asking about, but thank you your post has given some much needed direction.
