Which brands make suits/blazers that firs small to size?

It seems like SW&D brands are the only one that makes suits in my size, 

and I don't want to spend a lot of cash on suits that are not particularly good to that price.

I just bought my first pair of dress boots.  Can anyone tell me how I should be caring for them (polish vs conditioner etc) so that they stay sharp?

Same as you would any other pair of nice leather shoes. Polish every 5 wears or so, condition every couple of polishes. Wax or cream doesn't matter that much, just none of those instant shines.

Going to a wedding in a few weeks so I bought this tie/pocket square combo. Can't decide if it matches. Opinions?

Girls match, men coordinate.

Here are some alternative options with that tie:

I'm looking for a sport coat blazer made of a heavier fabric (wool/tweed etc.) maybe something patterned like this but in a neutral/dark color, know it's a long shot but any suggestions?

Can somebody elaborate on bias pipes with some images to compare bias and not-bias (?) pipes.

 

While reading over this thread, there was some discussion about bias pipes came up. Despos explained them in the following, but I am still confused.

Quote:
Pipes are the two strips of cloth that make the pocket. The fabric used for this on this suit are cut on the bias rather than with the grain line of the cloth. Looking at the jacket pockets and the back pockets on the trouser you will see the stripe in the cloth running in a diagonal direction rather than a straight horizontal line.

These are images from the original thread:

A tweed jacket in a brown check?

Look wherever tweed jackets are sold in your area, a decent men's store should have a few different options. You're in New York, home of a huge fashion industry- pick out a menswear shop with a tweed jacket in the window. It's fall, they should all be showing off their cool weather stuff. Alternately, get one made to measure here. The member "tweedy" here also has a pretty huge selection of vintage tweed jackets, you could try private messaging him.

What is the best knot to tie a 7 fold with? I can't get the half windsor to knot or dimple properly. I don't have this problem with other ties, thicker non 7 folds included.

just go 4 in hand, you'll have a lot more ease of dimple. 4 in hand is really my go-to I never tie anything other than that
