What type/color tie would look best with a light blue houndstooth dress shirt like the one below.

Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know where I could find a decent 34S suit? They are harder to find than I thought. If not, does anyone know a good custom tailor in NYC that could make one for under $1000? 

 

Thank you.

I'd go with a solid twill.

I don't say this to offend, but you might want to try looking in the boy's section. Otherwise, Suit Supply, which has a store in NYC, has suits that go down to 35 at least. I don't know about 34S, but perhaps one of their extra-slim fitting 35s might work for you. The last resort is custom, for which I'd recommend WW Chan's ~$1500 deal over something under $1,000. If you had to stay under $1,000, however, maybe ask Suit Supply how much their made-to-measure services are.

Thank you for your detailed and quick response. I will look into Suit Supply. I have heard good and bad things about Mysuit for custom fits as well. I am not a wealthy man and I already get my shirts custom tailored so I'm looking for a cheap... not CHEAP... suit and sport jacket.

I have had some luck at Topman but it's very hit or miss.

Children's suits and clothes tend to be boxy on me and the sleeves are too short most of the time.

Thanks again!

I know this has been asked before, but if someone could help me either find this jacket or a similar one, OR the thread in which it was asked, i would really appreciate it. I can't manage to find the thread.

Thoughts on these chukkas? I'm looking a beater suede chukka to knock around in jeans. These are nubuck and a lighter than I had been eyeballing, but they're interesting. I wonder if this is a leather I could darken up some.

Hey guys I need jackets for fall and winter but I'm not sure what kind of jacket will compliment and coincide with my style. For the most part I wear button up shirts ( Oxford), normally with twill skinny jeans or denim with boats shoes or basic black vans. I was looking at a lightweight heather gray letterman that I like but I'm not sure how it will look with my wardrobe. I do plan on buying a peatcoat but I want another jacket that isn't so formal, I'm only 17, so I don't want to over do it especially when I'll mainly be dressing for school. Thanks in advance.

I love em , I been looking for something like these to replace boats shoes when it gets cold, they would look better dark, although I really like the sahara color.

Short time lurker and I appreciate the constructive comments.

 

Is this tie knot too big?

Does the way shell cordovan wrinkle make it inappropriate for black cap toe oxford specifically aimed at conservative business dress for City of London?

Would this tie work with a dark navy nailhead suit and light blue shirt?  Or would a white shirt be better?

I am drooling over the tie and want to make sure this ensemble will work before I pull the trigger.

Does anyone know the maker and last of these shoes (BB Peal medallion cap toe)? I've read that the single row of nails means C&J, but I have no idea what last. Thanks.

It would go just fine with either but I would use the light blue shirt.
