post #18496 of 30160

thank you very much for the insight.  When i said small i meant a slim fitting shirt, not a size small.  I typically wear a 16-33.  I also just remembered black friday is coming up so that sounds like the perfect time for me to try to find some stuff from BB.  Do they typically do a decent discount on black friday?  I'm from canada so I have no real notion as to the savings. :/

 

again thank you very much!

2) I found the armholes to be fairly low.  If I request a remake for higher armholes, will it be impossible to wear this overcoat over a suit jacket with low armholes?  I have some older jackets which (unfortunately) have low armholes, and I wouldn't want to be unable to wear them at all with this jacket.

Thanks

As you expect, if the overcoat has higher armholes than the suit jacket, they will not lay nicely on your figure. Wouldn't recommend. Sleeves should be just snug enough to fit your suit or a thick sweater, and some bunching may be inevitable.

The sleeves shouldn't bunch up in the overcoat. Either the overcoat sleeves are too slim, or the suit jacket sleeves are too big. An overcoat (made to go over a suit jacket) is not going to have very high arm holes. You should still have movement and shouldn't be as low as a 80s-90s suit. But should be low enough to fit a suit in it.

Anyone could tell me where I could find this suit that Owen Slater wears in Boardwalk empire. Or the name of the style? I'm having a 30's themed birthday party for my 30th bday (go figure) and I'd really like to wear something special. Thoughts?

I'm thinking about this Brooks coat when it goes on sale. Would that be a good deal for $560?

I have this coat in charcoal http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/outerwear/wool/PRDOVR~17934/17934.jsp and it works really well for me. It's not quite as tradition as the BB coat that you posted, but a heck of a lot cheaper and still looks good on me. Gets a lot of compliments.

Conservative- you can find conservative ties in most any color, but some colors are more conservative than others. For an interview, I would recommend a darker color- burgundy is usually my go to when a conservative tie is called for, navy when I'm wearing a charcoal suit.

You could get away with anything but black. Depending on the charcoal it could work but you would have to see. Blues, greys, and earth tones will work.

None - the shoes are hideous.

The super overscaled broguing details on the uppers looks totally out of place with the super thin soles. Look for something a bit less out of whack, please.

Hi guys,

 

Have read through all the threads about super numbers for wool, but I hope to get a deeper insight into the VBC super 140s in terms of construction, durability and sheen.

 

Thanks!

Is a tailor able to raise the arm holes on a winter coat? If so, any idea on what it should cost?

Get RL Albin instead. Much more elegant.
