post #19381 of 33125

I am looking at A Southwick DB cashmere blazer with working cuffs, I know nothing about the brand. Any feedback is appreciated.

How about pocket squares from the tie bar? At $8 or $10 they look like a steal.

Would this color work with a navy blazer?

For some reason the shoe cream (Woley) won't stay on the right shoe. I wiped that particular spot with just regular water (did it on both shoe), this was two days ago and it still won't work. It worked fine on the left shoe. Anyone who knows why, or how to make it work? I already know these glued shoes aren't the finest quality out there (Acne), but I might as well try get some wear out of these. Thanks in advance.

Should a blazer cover your behind when sitting down?

I have my eye on a Plain Navy Napoli suit from Suit Supply; is there something better in that price range? For reference, I am average height, but very thin.

I am looking at light brown/tan shoes to pair with the navy suit; currently it is a 3-way tie amongst the following:

Allen Edmonds Fifth Avenue in Walnut


Meermin Linea Maestro in Light Brown


Andrew Lock Gryffin Wholecut


Just looking for input on these items or suggestions outside of the picks I've made. Thanks.
.

All the items look good and seem to be of solid quality. However, wouldn't black shoes be more useful? Definitely avoid light brown for wear with the navy suit.

Light brown shoes with a navy suit can look good (maybe depends on how light), but could be considered a bit flashy. Depending on your industry, a dark brown or black shoe is the way to go. Since you are considering such a casual shoe already, I am going to assume you don't need extremely conservative shoes, so I would recommend a dark brown punch cap to start (AE 5th Ave, for example). You could go with the standard black captoe too (park ave), which is always appropriate for job interviews and funerals, if not a bit boring.

Hey guys, I'm going to a black-tie-ish NYE party. Having attended the event before I know that there's going to be a number of people wearing normal dark suits. In recent years I've always worn my black tuxedo and felt appropriately dressed, but this time I forgot to bring it. The most formal option I have available is a very nice navy two button suit. I guess I want to 'dress it up' but I'm unsure if it's fine to combine it with my normal tuxedo gear (which I have available). Here's all my options: Shirt: 1. Tuxedo shirt with a hidden placket and Kent collar 2. White business shirt with a semi-spread collar Neckwear: 1. Black bow tie 2. Black tie with very subtle white stripes 3. Solid blue tie (with a hue dangerously close to the color of my suit :/) Can you guys please help me pick the most appropriate/formal combination :) Thanks :D

Don't combine it with tux stuff. Make it look like a formal suit. White shirt, french cuffs if you can, simple links and silver tie. Black oxfords.

Don't do it.

Assuming "black-tie-ish" (a description with which I'm unfamiliar) means something akin to "black tie optional," just wear your navy suit with ordinary suit-appropriate shirt, tie, etc.

I'm 100% certain that various celebrities routinely mix business suit and tuxedo gear, and I'm equally confident that some people here on SF think it looks good, but I'm telling you that it's not a traditionally approved practice. So if you care about traditionally approved practices, there's your answer.

Oh, and there's nothing inherently wrong about wearing a navy blue tie with a white shirt and navy blue suit. Don't worry that the tie is of similar hue to your suit. It's okay.

How many inches of fabric should be left folded inward on a pants hem?  Plain no cuffs.

post #19393 of 33125

hello all,

 

Is it a factor if the back vent is cut too high? Like the top of the vent where it starts to separate is almost at the middle of my back. Is it possible for a tailor to sew it down a little?

Hey guys - not sure if this is the right place to ask, but where is this Practical Thoughts on Coherent Combinations for Beginners thread that's raved about. I can't find it here, and the links that are all over the web, can't link to it because apparently it's no longer available? is there an archived thread or something? 

 

Thanks!
