If your shirt was colored, you could go with a pastel colored tie to take some of the attention away from the jacket / shirt.  But because your jacket is a 'power' color and your shirt is white, I would go with a navy blue or a burgundy solid tie or with a subtle stripe so as to complement the 'power' nature of the jacket.

As a generaliztion one should not mix suits, especially when the colors are extremely close. I can think of a few exceptions but this one doesnt make the list. I am sorry but it just doesnt work. Use the vest under a sport coat that is a different color or, if you want to look like a hipster, wear it with no jacket.

Thanks for the advice. What type of sport coats do you think would work with a black vest under it? Maybe a tan or grey? And what if I wore a matching light grey pants and jacket, with the black vest? Would that work?

Useful advice, many thanks. I have a light blue shirt and a light/pastel brown tie. Maybe i'll go with that combination.

Which sorts of interfacing are used for bow ties?

Hello, don't know if this is the right place for this newbie question, if not - my apologies.

I'm trying to know what type of fabric this suit is made of? and color would be described as mid-grey i guess?

I really like both the fabric and the color and would like to know what it is and where I could find something similar. Thanks in advance a lot for your help!

Curiosity compels me to ask, which country is this, where a dry cleaner is the nation's largest employer?

I'm not looking to make fun of your country, mind you. It just seems like such a bizarre situation...

Of course, I suppose it could be a situation like what we'd have in the US, were Walmart (the largest non-government employer in the US) to start offering dry cleaning. (I *think* the largest US employer is technically the Department of Defense. Anyone know if they run a dry cleaning service? No, I'm not joking. I could imagine some DoD dry cleaning business which would be found at isolated military bases, at the Pentagon, etc.)

Anyway, there's often no real correlation between a company's size, and the quality of the job it does.

I tried my hand at thrift shopping this weekend. To prepare, I took with me a list of suit brands that are apparently worthwhile. Today, I found this Pal Zileri Gruppo Forall. I thought this might be a good place to find out if this is actually a decent find or if I wasted my money. Thanks in advance for any insight.

  • Despite the pictures, the suit is actually a dark blue.
  • There don't seem to be any indications of size.

Hi All,

Can i get your critique on this navy blazer i purchased when in japan last year - i havent been able to wear due to warm weather. i know its not your "traditional" sports blazer, but i love the soft shoulders and slim look of it.

I dont normally wear blazers and just want to get a quick sanity check from you experienced SFers.

thanks !

The jacket looks a good three inches too short...

you are spot on, measured my other suit jackets and they are 2-3 inches longer. It was a rushed purchase and i have my self to blame, oh well i think ill be putting this on marketplace shortly.

Hi, I'm trying to identify the fabric of this beautiful suit. 

Can anyone help me either identify it or the best way to describe this type of fabric/suit?

Colorwise - is this what one calls "Oxford grey"? 

Probably newbie questions, but trying to educate myself ;)


Hoping this is the right place for this question..

Thanks in advance :)

Is herringbone an exclusively tweed pattern? I'm looking for a grey herringbone odd jacket but it seems like they're all tweed. Alternatively, what would be a good, versatile, pattern that's predominantly grey?

post #20773 of 33377
You can find herringbone cloths other than tweed but you run the risk of the pattern appearing self-striped which would be a dealbreaker for me.

I'm here to ask a question that can be stated in one word, a word full of contextual meaning.  Please associate it with the following picture and ask the question yourself.




This... thing... is a cotton-linen blend.  Meaning it's for use in the summer.

The price?  $2352.00.
