I never stated it wasn't.

Guys, I need help.
Can you recommend colours/patterns to go with this jacket? I don't want to repeat the mistakes seen in the picture. What colours would go best if I were to wear mid grey pants?

Thanks

I'd go for a wine/white dot tie, light blue shirt, white linen square.

Thoughts?

Do wider shoes have larger toeboxes? I tried on a pair of size 10 AE Park Avenues the other day that fit perfectly, except for the toes in the right shoe (my right foot is ever so slightly bigger than my left, so I often have to size up to avoid crushing my pinky toe). Would a 10E fix the problem (there were no nontraditional widths available, so I didn't get to try one on)? Or should I just size up and deal with the extra space?

A larger toebox in what dimension? Length? Shoe width generally refers to the girth of the shoe as measured around the instep of the shoe. As such, the toebox of an E-width shoe may be wider, but it is unlikely to be longer than the toebox in a D-width shoe. Of course, as with any matter of shoe fit, the best approach is to physically try on the shoe in question.

I know the typical solution to this is buy a "sports shirt," the problem I encounter with that is the medium fits me perfectly in everywhere besides the neck(in every brand, not just RL), almost all sport shirts at 15-15 1/2 neck side at medium and I'm a 16.  I swim in a large.  

I don't suit up very often, and dress casual the rest of the time.  That being said I need as much flexibility with my wardrobe as I can get, you know money and all.  It would be very nice to be able to find a coupIe shirts that could fit both bills or jeans and slightly dressed up.  I wouldn't mind any brand recommendations to fit me needs either!  I live near Jackson Premium Outlets in NJ and have RL, J Crew, Brooks Brothers(even their slim shirts are quite baggy), Banana Republic, Gap, Tommy Hilfiger and a few others at my immediate disposal to make up for lack of funds.  

This might help,

I'm 5'9, 42" chest, 32" waist.  

Thanks you!

I think you might have an issue with the chest, but not the length. I wear a medium custom fit and am only a 38 chest and the shirt is a bit constricting. I'm not sure if a 42 chest will fit into that shirt. I have to caveat that I have sport shirts and dress shirts in the custom fit. I think my dress shirt is a Regent shirt and my sport shirt is a pink OCBD. The dress shirt is a bit tighter fitting. If I were to wear them untucked though, I would need to get them shortened, since I am only 5'5".

I would suggest going to a shop that deals in custom suits (it sounds like you want to pick your fabrics, etc.). You can see and feel the fabrics in person, talk with a person face to face, and they will always treat you well if you are serious about buying a suit (bring you water, sometimes even a beer at very vintage shops).

 

If you have decided to save some money and go online I would suggest Black Lapel as I have 3 suits and 5 shirts from them. All very good, not quite my bespoke suits, but very good. They are a little more expensive than some other online mtm shops, but have half-canvassed and fully canvassed suits. Indochino is a popular choice but based on the experience I had with them I can only tell you to stay away.

 

For my groomsmen who were all cheap we are going with iTailor.com. They fabrics aren't very soft, and they are fused suits. But $200 for a mtm suit is a pretty sweet deal.

Your question is really broad which makes for a difficult succinct answer. The link for the WAYWRN casual thread is below. You might also consider browsing the Streetwear & Denim forum.

So I just purchased my first 2 pairs of AE's; Black Park Ave and Walnut Hale's. So obviously the black PA's are a staple and can be dressed up with just about anything, but what are your opinions on the Walnut Hales? It's definitely a lighter shade of brown so is there anything I should avoid wearing them with? Can they go with a dark navy suit, light grey suit, and dressed down as far as dark denim with a sport coat?
