Menswear n00b is back. Recap: I have 2 weddings to attend, a week apart from each other. I picked up one suit (blackwatch or black, grey, and purple tartan,whatever's it's called) and will wear it for both, but will wear different shirts and ties w/ the suit.

I've decided on 2 shirts: light purple (pictured) and white. Question: what color ties would go best? I've already decided on a 'patterned' tie of some sort, but what base color would look best with this suit and purple and white shirts?





And this is probably a no-no...but a grey tie with it? (I just threw it on to see how it looked)

Tie bar w/o jacket? I recently got my Kent Wang clip, seems like it's a great way to keep the tie tail from dipping into unwanted places like your food or a wet sink (when washing your face).

I have no need to a jacket for work usually because Singapore is too hot for one...only needed when meeting big clients / interviews / important events. Also, I'm not going to be the idiot who is impeccably dressed but broiling alive in 34 celsius and 90% humidity weather.

Dont wear a tie without a jacket, it makes you look like a waiter or a child whose mommy made him get dressed up for school pictures.

QUESTION OF THE DAY:

"What is the general SF consensus on pants without belt loops? Most notably, RLBL suits come with such pants." 

post #21800 of 30369
I don't have belt loops on any of my suits--I wear them with braces. My odd trouser do have belt loops.

Ok I know this is very un SF but would appreciate it if anyone knows how I can find more of this tie series. Afaik it's d&g about 15-20 years old. Need to replace one

Hey guys, I need advice on what shoe size would fit me well

 

Shoe in question is Herring Hampstead (using last 026 only in width F)

 

I fit into Clarks DB size 9 and most of my shoes are US 10.5 (only with exception of my Converse shoes idk why it's in size UK11 ?)

 

I have a flat foot though.. my feet measures 4.4 inches wide and 10.77 inches long

post #21803 of 30369

I can't tell from your other shoes, but I do own one pair on the 26, and they are a generous fit.  I'd guess a UK 10F would be very comfortable, and possibly even a 9.5.  Herring are very helpful if you email them to ask.

Does anyone know what the folding on the thighs of pants is from? Example below. I wear a size 33. If I get a size 34 and get the seat and rear rise taken in, the sides are pretty clean, comparable to "02 STRAIGHT" fit below. If I get 33's (which don't really need the seat or rise taken in too much), it's got the same fold on the side as this "04 RELAXED" fit below.

 

How can I fix that? If you see it from the front, it makes my thighs look gigantic. I look like one of those hunters with the huge thigh pants.

Anyone know were can I get some suede loafers? Kind off like these:

Blue plain suede loafers? Not sure. I got some blue suede string loafers from Carmina/Skoab..

I like them but I haven't really worn them yet. I'd suggest against it unless you've already got a vast wardrobe and know how to wear them well.

Thank you, but Im looking for some that dont have any kind of details/stitching in the top (not sure how its called). Just plain like the ones I posted but maybe better quality.

Did you even read what I wrote? Company HR policy dictates that I wear a tie during work (Jacket is optional). Wearing a jacket as well everyday is just plain uncomfortable, especially since I commute via the metro.

...Maybe you have never tried wearing a jacket all day in hot, sticky equatorial weather.

Oh contraire, I'm very familiar with hot, sticky weather.

You asked for advice and were given advice. You didn't like the advice.

If your dress code is so strict, and you won't wear a jacket, then just accept that you're going to look bad and move on. Worrying about whether or not to wear a tie bar is like worrying about turning out the lights when your house is on fire.

FWIW, an unstructured, unlined linen jacket is pretty cool wearing.

I have white pants. The pockets show through. I'm thinking of removing them. jst wanted a second opinion.

I'm wondering if its inviting trouble ( visible/vulgar crotch and buttocks). Kinda hard to test.

removing pockets in general: good idea or always missing feel like something is missing.

thx
