I have the same dilemma with short letters and text messages. Of course it is nice to thank your correspondent. On the other hand by sending a "thank you" message you compel someone to devote his time to opening and reading this plain message, without any useful information in it. Should not thank you be accepted by default? Otherwise, the recipient would feel obliged to say "you are welcome" and then you would need to respond with "thank you again" and who knows where this meaningless exchange of compliments would stop.post #20508 of 301602/26/13 at 10:33amQuote:It would be impolite to stop at hundreds of "Thank you" posts. Good manners dictate that each "Thank you," be responded to with a post saying, "You're welcome."
After all, if we're going to clog the "Ask A Question..." thread, in the name of manners, it would be unforgivable to do so halfway.
Alternatively, we could accept that while manners are undeniably important, some of the traditional rules on saying "Thank you," and "You're welcome," which pre-date the rise of online interaction, may not strictly apply in the context of an extremely active thread on an online forum with numerous participants. (Just as etiquette and manners originally intended to address in person conversation and postal correspondence adapted in various ways to the widespread use of the telephone as a means of communication.)
Naturally, none of this precludes one from sending a private message of thanks, in response to some particularly worthwhile advice. Nor does it suggest that appropriate public follow-up, regarding how advice received influenced how one opted to proceed, is necessarily undesirable.

Haha...it was just a general observation; I posted that immediately after I'd replied to your question, it wasn't directed at you!
Anyway, yes, points well made above. I'm just curious how all these questions turn out in the end.post #20512 of 301602/26/13 at 11:25ampost #20513 of 301602/26/13 at 2:06pm
I have no idea, so I'll just link it and risk having it sniped: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Oxxford-Clothes-GRAY-PINSTRIPE-MEN-SUIT-JACKET-SZ-38-S-722-/121072358372?pt=US_CSA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item1c307993e4post #20514 of 301602/26/13 at 2:28pmQuote:
Thank you. This is what I was thinking as the thought of a red toned belt just seemed odd, not that it couldn't work in some situations.
That doesn't evoke classic menswear for me. However, to answer your question try Julius or RO.post #20515 of 301602/26/13 at 4:21pmpost #20516 of 301602/26/13 at 4:44pmQuote:
Depends how dark the charcoal is. If there is enough difference IMO it could work but I would change the white oxford to a pale blue button down.post #20517 of 301602/26/13 at 5:38pmQuote:Originally Posted by Doktor Corn

Don't bother, that is clearly an orphan suit jacket and will always look as such.post #20518 of 301602/26/13 at 5:45pmQuote:
The charcoal is like the one below. I also have a pale blue oxford shirt but I thought white would provide better contrast.post #20519 of 301602/27/13 at 3:38am
I have a sports coat that I feel fits well. The measurements are..Pit to pit 21Sleeves 25.5Shoulder 18Length 29.5There's a sports jacket I like..Specs:
Chest: 22" Sleeves: 25.5" Shoulders: 19" Length: 30"
It's possible to get a jacket tailored to these specs if they're purchased with the below, correct? I'm OK with the length being longer. Since the sleeves match perfect, I think the shoulder being an inch wider could droop the sleeves too much.
