New the site, had a quick question for everyone...the advice is much appreciated!
I have a business casual dress requirement for an interview. I was wondering what colors (shirt/tie/pants) would work with a brown/tan blazer like the one in the link below. How would a sweater look with a shirt/tie and coat? http://www.josbank.com/menswear/shop/Product_11001_10050_297868
Thanks again for the help.
I would try a white, blue, or lavender shirt with a blue tie, maybe a navy grenadine. If you haven't bought the jacket already, don't.post #20463 of 314352/23/13 at 6:14pm
I'm looking at getting my first summer suit commissioned, I have a nice wool/linen 50/50 picked out in a light navy color. I was wondering if I should get the jacket fully lined or half lined? I work in NYC so some summer days can get pretty brutal and my initial impression was half lined, but after doing some research I've read conflicting reports on fully lined vs half lined especially in regards to linen/linen blends. Any help is appreciated.post #20464 of 314352/23/13 at 7:11pmpost #20465 of 314352/23/13 at 7:44pmQuote:Originally Posted by JohnnyGalt

I would say half lined. NYC summers can be brutal (I would know) and with linen the most important place to be lined is the sleeves. Embrace the wrinkles in the tail, which will be there regardless, although maybe slightly less so if it is fully lined. But wrinkles are part of the wonder of linen.post #20466 of 314352/24/13 at 2:29ampost #20467 of 314352/24/13 at 4:34ampost #20468 of 314352/24/13 at 4:34amQuote:Originally Posted by wesny

I have three linen suits. They crease like a bitch in no time at all. Then you take the choice whether today is a day you want to look pressed and neat for an hour, or to just "embrace the wrinkles" as you put it.
I would also say half lined, although another factor is that linen, depending on type, can be quite transparent in a single layer in the light, so if you're wearing an odd jacket in a very light linen, it might look strange at the bottom when the sun catches you. Also, because of the creasing and softness, it's inherently casual. I wear my suits for all kinds of meetings, and offset the casual look by having all of them made up as three pieces, so I have the option of the inherent formality that way, albeit in a very summery look..post #20469 of 314352/24/13 at 7:43ampost #20470 of 314352/24/13 at 10:40ampost #20471 of 314352/24/13 at 3:43pmI was wondering if I could get someone's advice on tailoring pants.
I did search, but I couldn't seem to find a definitive answer cause my inquiry seems a bit too specific (I'm really picky )
I need some wool trousers for my internship this summer, and I had a couple questions.
I'm a really skinny asian college student, and so most of the pants I've found don't seem to fit me as slim as I want.
I'm looking for something with a 32 in waist, 10-10.5 inch rise, 11-11.5 inch thighs, a 7-7.5 inch opening, and 100% wool under $150 a piece. I know my measurements are a little weird, specially for the waist size, but I have a naturally thick waist (bone structure I guess), even though I'm pretty lean.
I know that my measurements aren't something I can easily find, so I was planning on just buying a pair of landend's tailored fit wool pants (since they're only $70) and just getting them altered.
My question was, how much can I alter these pants before they start getting weird? Can I slim down the legs 2 inches or so and also shorten the rise by 0.5-1 inch?
Thanks for all the help!post #20472 of 314352/24/13 at 3:48pmpost #20473 of 314352/24/13 at 4:32pmpost #20474 of 314352/25/13 at 1:06am
