It's explicitly described as a "Long-sleeve super 160's wool two-button single-breasted mini check suit." Which gives rise to the question, "Are there so many _short_ sleeve suits out there that it's truly necessary to point out this suit's long-sleeve nature?" smile.gif

Welp, it happened. I saw a short sleeved suit jacket at a designer consignment shop today. I bought a nice PWVC grey cardigan, but I'm certain someone will want me to proxy this.

Sleeve too tight forcing cap to bend? a tiny .25 inch let out will fix?

it drapes beautifully when I wear just a t shirt. I had the sleeves slimmed down, maybe a tad too much?

Pic?

If you get the chance, please do set fire to it.

I'm afraid to shop at consignment shops anymore, now that Pat Robertson has opened my eyes to the possibility of witches having prayed demons into the clothing there. And you've got to think that if any article of clothing contains a witch-prayed demon, it'd be a short sleeve designer suit.

what color and pattern neckwear should be for gingam shirts? can't imagine, cause as it seems to me, gingam pattern is a self-enough saturated. so how to adjust to it?

where can i find info on that: any "how to", review or a rules summary?

Go with solid ties for gingham shirts IMO.

Gingham is pretty informal and generally would not be worn with a tie. If you do wear a tie with it, I'd go for a solid, as it's going to be hard to find something that doesn't clash with the gingham.

Don't wear gingham for formal wear.  Ergo, no tie. A micro-check on the other hand can be treated almost like a solid colour, just not with a fine patterned or heavy textured tie.

Hello.  This is "Classic Menswear".  Burn those things and start reading from the top.  Your plastic leisurewear has no place in here.

Tree, unvarnished.  Newspapers are fine for an emergency if your shoes are soaked, otherwise they neither support nor freshen the shoe like trees do.  Varnished trees do keep the shoe's shape, but are a useless and pretentious affectation.  Also, if your trees are not made specifically for your shoes ("lasted"), then there is no real advantage of more expensive ones over cheaper ones:  Go for a full-shaped heel, and unfinished cedarwood - cheap, cheerful and absolutely fine for most shoes.
