Looking for an alternative to the jcrew 3-400ish ludlow jackets. Still want something stylish and with the relative quality, but looking for a change. Any ideas? thanks.

It would help if you explained why you "want a change."

Lapels are slightly too thin and it is very narrow in mid section, then wider at hips.

Ricpac, I would also check out http://www.pediwear.co.uk/ and http://herringshoes.co.uk/.

What do you all think of oversizing shoulders by a little less than half an inch if the coat has decent padding to add structure and improve the silhouette?  I'm starting to think this may not be a bad idea since my shoulders are somewhat narrow.

Cptjeff, thanks for  your input.  I think I'm going to hang on to the suit and get some use out of it this summer.  Thanks!

Does this look like a fairly high button stance? Can't tell with the angle.

I think low button stances look better on me.

Pics would help. I really can't imagine what you are saying. You're mid-section and hips are not that far apart

I am going to re-submit my question since it was buried due to the moderators' slow confirmation time.

 

I accidentally ordered the wrong dress shirt: I placed an order for one with fine stripe motif instead of a plain light-blue one. I am now considering whether or not I should correct mistake, or if such a dress shirt would be an excellent addition to my wardrobe - which, at the moment, only contains plain, motif-less dress shirts.

I am worried that it looks too much like a pajamas, and that it will stand out too much at my corporate place of employment where tie and jacket are obligatory. I am starting there after New Year's, so I don't actually know how "brave" the other employees are in terms of dress shirts.

 

What do you guys think?

I got a olive oil stain on my suit.
How do I remove it? I've dry cleaned this suit twice or three times this year already, so I would prefer to not do it again, but obviously would if I had no other choice.

A fine stripe shirt is still pretty tame. I wouldn't think twice wearing one in a conservative environment.

Do you think it looks like a pajamas? What I'm trying to find it is what I would get the most value out of: A plain, light-blue one - or the one I have linked.

 

The following is the plain one: http://www.harrods.com/product/modern-fit-shirt/armani-collezioni/000000000002925420?cat1=new-men&cat2=new-men-formal-shirts
