Medium to dark, better yet charcoal for FW or a medium grey for SS

why do rlbl suit pants not have belt loops? instead they have these two side tabs...
why would they not have them? doesnt make sense to me.
I like wearing belts with suits. Are there no ways to do so with these pants?

No belt with suits = winner. Go with it.

Some brands give you the belt loops separate as well, incase you want to have them added. Not sure if RLBL does...

It's a sleeker look to forego the belt. That said, I usually wear one because I like my belts!

Where to source for cloth? I want to purchase some to commission my tailor for a suit.

Thank you very much sir!

I am considering having a new suit made, I am set on a three piece (with no lapels on the vest), however as all of my current suits are notch lapels, I was hoping to make the three-piece with a peak lapel. My issue is as an individual of smaller stature I have made all my current suits with narrow lapels (regular sized lapels look unusually large on me), approx. 2.25".

 

My question is, has anyone seen narrow peak lapels on a suit? And if so, I would appreciate someone positing some pics so that I can determine whether it would look odd on a suit.

 

Thanks SF brethren!

I am looking to purchase my first (well fitting) suit (I am in college). I would like to keep it around $450 (socks, shirts, tie (one or two), and the suit) if that is possible. I already own shoes (AE Park Avenues)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Aldous,

Check TM Lewin out. I'm very happy with their suits. They're half canvased. From their current selection I would recommend the styles "Stephenson" and "Earlham". The cloth have a great feel. I purchased the Portobello and Brunel models also but didn't like the cloth as much.

 

I have a question of my own.

 

 

I intend to buy a overcoat and use a suit/Sport coat under. If the shoulder width (shoulder seam to shoulder seam) on my suits/SCs is 17,5-18,5", what should the shoulder width be on the overcoat?

 

Same thing goes for chest width, which is 19-20,5" on my suits/SCs. What should the chest width on the overcoat be?

 

I'm, of course speaking in general and am aware of that I wont get a exact scientific answer. I just need some rule of thumb to know what to search for at the Internet.

 

Thanks in advance.

At least make the shade closer to mid than to black. Charcoal really isn't as versatile as an odd trouser as something a little lighter.

Definitely medium gray is a lot more versatile than charcoal but charcoal does have its place (with light-colored shirts).
