any other opinions on this shirt and back faded jeans? what would you wear with them

 

Anyone feel free to speak up if you disagree with me but I would prefer sticking with a nice set of blue jeans because your shoe options are far greater. I feel like black jeans are actually LESS dressy than a dark wash blue jean. Most of the time when I see someone wearing black jeans it's paired with a black or white sneaker. I like these pumas but I don't think I'd wear them with that shirt.

 

If you're dead set on wearing that shirt with black jeans I'd suggest a black or grey chukka?

I often read comments that you should avoid using a jacket from a pair of suit as a sports jacket alone. Can somebody elaborate how a jacket from a suit and an individual sports jacket differ when you look at them?

They have different designs. A suit jacket is more conservative (solid or light, subtle designs) while a sports coat usually has patterns. A sports coat is more 'fun' version of a suit jacket.

Suit jackets are fine worsted plain weaves or twills whereas sport coats are generally more interesting weaves like herringbones, tweeds, nailheads etc with chunkier yarns.

Well, I have a fondness for penny loafers. When on sale, Sebago Cayman II's are often available for about $100 per pair, which is inexpensive enough that even if you wind up not wearing them very often, you needn't feel bad about blowing serious money on them. And while they're certainly not extraordinary loafers, I'll take them over current Bass offerings, any day.

They're a step up from boat shoes, but are still casual enough to work nicely with jeans and a decent shirt. A pair in burgundy might be just the thing for you.

Are there any truly slim chinos out there? I've tried both Lands End Canvas' and J. Crew's slimmest fitting chinos and both were still baggy. I'm 5'5 and ~135 lbs. I'm looking for something with a bit of color in addition to the regular khaki color - navys, corals, reds, grays, etc. Looking to spend less $100 (under $80 would be fantastic) per pair.

I'm also looking for slim-fitting chinos. I'm 5' 7", 145 lbs and in good shape. I tried J. Crew but their fit and quality are terrible. Brooks has better quality but their fit isn't much better. Thanks.

Another good reason is that you want the jacket and trousers to wear evenly. Being exposed to sunlight can also subtly alter the color of the fabric. If you wear our jacket without the trousers often enough, it will wear faster, and can look slightly different.

Gentlemen,

 

I need a black suit for a friend's wedding in November (not my choice - I'm a groomsman and this is the uniform he's picked). Not wanting to spend too much, I started poking around on eBay.

 

Botton line - does this look real and/or does anyone have experience with this seller? 

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/44-R-RALPH-LAUREN-PURPLE-LABEL-BLACK-WOOL-SUIT-5-995-New-/190717973064?pt=US_CSA_MC_Suits&hash=item2c67ad5248#ht_923wt_1157

 

I particularly ask because the lining of the pants doesn't match the lining on a RLPL suit I bought a few years ago. 

 

Thanks in advance.

I need help with sizing or other options.
I bought a blazer 42r at Zara and at first glance everything looked fine, but I then noticed that the shoulder pads were sticking out and give me a very boxy appearance. I retuned it and tried a smaller size and no differnce. I just returned it and continued searching and found the same problems with them all. My build isnt anything extreme I work out and have a slight build, I wouldn't think my traps would off set the jacket tht much. I tried taking it to a tailor before I returned it the final time and they couldn't help they said. Where do I go from here I want something slim fitting and I'm striking out every where .
Thanks

To be honest I would say absolutely not worth it. As you are obviously uninterested in a black suit for the most part by saying it wasn't your choice, and assuming that you therefore would not be wearing it much after the fact, you could go for perhaps a hugo boss black  label which you can find for sub $400.

 

for that price, it could be fine to wear out to a club or some such after the fact, but if it never sees real life again you would b fine as well. it just seems that nearly $1,200 on a suit you seem to not care for very much is absolutely not work that $. Keep the other $800 and spend it on the bridesmaid you'll b bringing home that night!

+1 black jeans go with black, grey, or white. beyond that an you're at about 94% chance of looking terrible. Mind you, beat up black jeans with a white henley with a black leather or waxed cotton jacket (see: belstaff) can work great... perhaps with black chelsea boots and you look  like a bad mothaf*ckah. 

 

A dark blue jean has SIGNIFICANTLY more wearability. Brown, black, patterns, solids.... it's a go-to cure all look great. Get some naked & famous perhaps.
