You've pretty much answered your own question. The fabric and pattern of suit trousers will often be different from standard trousers.

I am in the hunt for some real nice wing tips. What do you guys think about Church's Shoes?

Church makes a good shoe, but depending on your budget there are much better options.

I was looking at C&J Cliffords in Barney's the other day as well. I thought the construction of the Church's was pretty good as well. But I know C&J from previous experience is a shoe for a lifetime. Which other options do you recommend under $800.00

C&J over Church for sure. Also check out Carmina.

C&J it is. Carmina I can't say I've never heard of them but now that I do. I will consider them.

Hello all-

I have a quick qustion: my chest measures 41". When buying off-the-rack sport coats that come in two inch gradations, is it best to go one inch smaller, or one inch bigger? 42R looks good on me, I think, but the shoulders do generally stick out a bit. 40R feels a bit tight across the back.

Thanks.

Thanks.

Varies from brand to brand. I would try on both and go with whichever fits better.

I really hope I don't get blasted for this due to my fashion ineptitude, but here it goes:

 

For Halloween, I am throwing a costume together last minute and of course I need to order things.  I'm going with a 1920's style English golf gent...of sorts, and I am ordering a pair of plus twos, or plus fours (knickerbocker/golf trousers) and I need to know what colors are going to go with some clothing I already have.  I already have a medium grey news boy cap and a light blue v-neck sweater.  I have a decent Michael Kors dress shirt and tie that go well with the sweater (I know, not 20's style, but bear with me).  I also have a pair of nice brown shoes.  My overall question is, will the brown shoes go with the grey news boy cap and corresponding plus twos?  If so, what color socks do I wear?  Argyle? Solid color?

 

Thanks in advance, gents.  I really appreciate the help!

This was a duplicate post.  I tried to delete it, but for the life of me and I cannot figure out how.  I run another forum and our set up is very different.  A mod can delete this if need be.  Apologies!

It wasn't a question. I was curious as to whether the vague comments about the difference between trousers and orphan trousers extended beyond fabric in the opinions of the posters.

There have been threads in which several have opined that there is a difference, other than buttons, between a navy blazer and a navy orphan jacket. The people who believed there is a difference vacated the discussion when asked to list the differences.

Brown shoes are fine. Argyles are a good choice for the look you are going for.

Navy suit, white shirt. Is pairing that with a navy tie with white dots overdoing the blue? Tie would be: http://www.kentwang.com/ties/pindot-navy.html.
