Well I have no idea what this would look like. Or for sure if it is possible. But my tailor has said to me you can always change a shawl lapel, into a peak, and a peak into notch. I can only assume you can turn a notch into a lapel-less. But you will need a master tailor. I can't imagine it looking good without taking it to someone who knows what thy are doing. Which will cost you a lot.

Hello,

 

I keep getting this weird ripple thing in my dress shirts. It's difficult to straighten out (only stays straight for a few minutes). Does anyone know why this happens? My shirts are slim, but not tight and it happens on $50 and $200 shirts alike. I am a slim man without a gut of any kind. 

 

Standing:

 

 

 

I'm not sure why the picture is not coming out vertical... but you get the point. 

 

This is while slouching/sitting down:

 

 

 

 

Thank you.

I've seen a photo of an experiement with that (doubt I could find it again though) and it looked utterly awful. Erase that idea from your head, you're just talking about ruining a perfectly good jacket.

If you want a lapel-less look, buy a cardigan.

Hi, SFers.
I've got this Paul Stuart SC made in Canada.
What I only know Canadian suit maker is Samuelsohn.
I've already search but I can't find this tag by Samuelsohn, only find recent 'white' tag but this is light 'yellow' tag.
I think this is somewhat old stock. But I don't know exactly how many years old.
Anyway, I just want to know this SC's maker.
Thanks

Hi guys, I need more colour help. What colour tie and shirt would go best with the jacket pictured below? (part of a suit but I just put the jacket on to get some guidance) I'm thinking blue, green, grey, maybe purple??

Those are horrible pics. Couldn't the camera being a little further away.

Is the shirt tucked in all the way?

It means your shirt is too damn tight.

Could someone post the link for Manton's (at least, I think it was Manton's) "Good Taste" thread?  I've searched, but I can't find it :-/

I apologize in advance for the bad pictures, sadly I no longer have a photographer. 

 

three options, 

 

1) the shirt is too long

2) the jacket is too short

3) looks fine

 

the second picture is taken at 'handshake' level and extension just for comparison

Reposting a from a thread I made earlier, sorry about that! I can delete the old one if you want. 

 

My question:

Hey guys, I got this blazer at a bargain price yesterday. It says in the item description that it is 'canvassed', but I am not so sure. I will cancel the order if it is fused. I know it is from the 'signature silver' line with a number 1450/1-401183 (fabric/item i think) associated with it. However, I have not been able to find a definitive answer to my question. Anyone familiar with this line/blazer? Thanks!
