Thanks to everyone who replied to my post, it is greatly appreciated. The thing is I am graduating from college in a couple of weeks and can't decide on what to wear. I really don't want to wear a suit because I know how a suit is supposed to fit and I think it will be hard finding something I can afford that fits like its supposed without being tailored. I know this is an important day I just am confused on what to wear.

For what, the actual graduation ceremony? Grey wool trousers and a blazer or sportcoat (along with appropriate dress shirt and tie) are what I would go with. Formal enough to respect the day, but informal enough not to look totally out of place on a college campus.

Can a silk knit tie be worn with a suit?
post #19550 of 32203
I just bought a few shirts from BB's sale. I'm trying to figure out what size fits better. The blue is 15.5x34 and the white is 15.5x35. I'm thinking the 35" fits better, especially when I bend my arm. What do you think?






Thanks!!!

Def 35". Might shrink slightly during first few washes also.

Yes, but it is a more casual option- don't wear it to a board meeting.

When I graduated, the robe covered everything up, so I regarded it as a jacket replacement, and just wore a shirt and tie underneath. Olive chinos, black penny loafers, white shirt, tie in school colors (green and gold in my case). Stick to the white shirt, other colors don't usually come off well against black. A tie in school colors is a nice thing to have for future life if you like your school, get one and wear it if you don't have one already. And I do recommend gray or olive for the trousers, you want something that goes well with black. Unless your robe color is different, in which case coordinate like you would a jacket in that color.

If you'll need extra warmth or aren't wearing a robe in your ceremony for whatever reason, throw on a navy blazer.

I've found a really nice beige wool suit in my closet, that I was wearing loooong time ago. It's single breasted. I want to alter it to make it double breasted, cause in waist part i'm much smaller than before and I like to experiment (I've done the same modification with one of my blazers). The only thing I'm concerned is jacket lapel - suit have a notch lapel.


here is my question: should I leave lapels as it is, or wearing notch lapel with a DB suit is a taboo? Its really hard and costly to make it a peak lapel, but because its not a business suit (cause its beige suit) I was thinking to add some additional part on lapels like this, to make it look more like peak lapel:

So what you'll recommend? to leave like it is or to modify it? 


Thank you

Never a good idea- the balance of the jacket will be off in many regards, and the lapels will indeed look wrong. If the chest and shoulders still fit (which, if you have that much room in the waist, I would be dubious about) you can have the waist taken in to make it slimmer while remaining single breasted. No, you can't add to the lapels. You can only take fabric away, you can't add it without the addition being incredibly obvious- one, you leave a seam in a conspicuous location, and two, you'll never find a fabric that matches exactly.

Khaki, Brown, Olive, Navy, just about any shade of Gray. Black is about the only thing you can't wear that color with, but you shouldn't be wearing that many black trousers or suits anyway. There is no debate on this one- only black shoes with black. There's major debate on what to wear with navy- I split the difference on that one. I prefer brown, but wear black on conservative occasions. Olive goes with both nicely. Some shades of brown can work with black shoes. No shade of khaki ever can- seriously, khaki and black is one of the most horrible color pairings you can wear. Don't do that one. Gray always works with black shoes, but browns that are generally similar in shade or darker than the gray also look nice- those are a dark brown, so they'll work with most all grays.

Medium grey trousers with a white or light blue button down will pair well.

Khaki, gray, navy, & medium brown would all work nicely. I tend to stick to white or white base shirts while wearing mine, though blue or tan can work if you play around a little.

Just got two Robert Talbott silk knit ties, my first two silk knit's. They were at Nordstrom Rack so I picked them up real quick since they were the last ones. 

Was curious if these were good quality. Pictures below.

Robert Talbott is generally excellent, though it surprises me to see they make their knits in China.
post #19558 of 32203

I was looking at other ties by Talbott and they all said made in Italy. I got these without looking where. I noticed while taking the pictures that it says China. 

 

I'm not too mad about it. I really like them. I just wanted to make sure (and hoped) these were decent so I know where to go from here with quality. 

 

Thanks Jeff.

I'm about to buy a pre-owned 9/10 (no tear, no hole, no stain) Gianluco Isaia Napoli suits in solid charcoal gray for around $350. The only downsize is the jacket length seem to be 0.25" shorter then my favorite sport coat length while all other measurement perfectly matched with my body measurement.

So my question is:
Is it a good price for a pre owned Gianluco Isaia Napoli?
Is 0.25" in jacket length really make a big differences that we consider the jacket is not fit?

Thanks all
