imo warm tones like alligator asks for brass. on a random note: spoo didn't follow this route with his monks. each to his own. nvm.

The question seemed a bit ridiculous to me based on some of his posts from the watch thread. Now you have me wanting to go back and check his posts.

What's the max acceptable amount of material between sleeve end and first sleeve button? I'm considering pulling the trigger on a 36R Suitsupply Jort, which has fully functioning cuff buttons. The only aspect that would need altering on me is to have the sleeves lengthened. Obviously this leaves the sleeve buttons a fair distance away from the actual sleeve end! How far is too far?

 

Thanks.

Thanks.

I think this is a bad idea.

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

I had never thought of a midnight blue suit, I like that idea.

However, as I correct in thinking you can only wear such a colour after dark?

 

I definitely want versatility for the first suit I go for. Thanks for the opinion regarding vents. Does anyone see any objection to a young man wearing a grey of that nature for a social 'suit up' occasion?

I apologize for the annoying nature of this question; my memory on this probably isn't completely accurate but I hope it's enough for someone to make a connection.

 

Within the past year or so on a well-recycled menswear blog/Tumblr (Sartorialist? Die, Workwear? Put This On? I don't remember) I recall somebody posting about a bespoke sports coat/light outerwear piece that they saw at their tailor or some other shop. The picture featured the jacket on a hanger - it was brown and it appeared to be designed for someone who rode a bicycle. The most unique characteristic that comes to mind is that there was a large lower patch pocket that seemed to function as a newspaper holder, and I believe there was a loop or belt of fabric above said pocket to keep the paper/magazine in place. I also think the pocket may have been stitched on a slant due to the hunched posture of a bicyclist.

 

Sorry if this sounds ridiculous, does anyone have any recollection of this image/post? I was confident that I had saved the picture for future reference but now I cannot find it on my computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You are correct that midnight blue is worn best after dark. If versatility is your criterion, charcoal gray or navy are your best options.

Yes a solid navy and a solid charcoal are the two best suits to start off with. They're good for just about any occasion and at any time of day or night.

I think this matches great.  The contrast in patterns along with the color contrast goes really well.  Widely spaced dots versus narrow spaced stripes...think this works really well.  And I always love pink on blue (especially since the pink tie has blue dots in it, which complement the shirt really well).   Just to confirm, that is a grey jacket right?

In my opinion there are too many patterns and the eyes can't focus on any single piece. If either the shirts or ties were solid they would work better IMO.
