Second, Zara doesn't make quality suits. If you have some additional $$, I'd suggest getting an MTM suit, since it is, after all, your wedding! If you're in the NYC area there are some great options including vendors here on StyleForum like Andrew Lock, etc. PM for recommendations if you'd like.

 

Third, if you are committed to the Zara suit, definitely opt for a different color tie. Don't have the tie color match your suit color. If your theme is spring colors, go with that instead!

 

Good luck


Thank you. I'm on the opposite side of the country from NYC, so those options won't work for me unfortunately. Also, I would get a MTM suit, but the wedding was planned quickly and everywhere I called is booked. Looks like I'm going to have to do the best with what I got. eh.gif

Trying to find some slim fitting, good quality dress pants and chinos for less than 100. Names, places, ebay storefronts? 

 

I'm about 29.5 waist, so it's sort of complicated... 


Also:

SHOULD I?

:D

When Incotex Ivory goes on sale, it can be had for less than $100. And damn, you can fit into a size 26?

Dinner with some old friends tonight but looks like it's going to rain, what shoes should I wear?

  • Suede desert boots with crepe soles
  • Leather wingtips with leather soles
  • Leather bluchers with rubber soles

 

Right now I'm leaning towards the bluchers because I'm scared the rain will ruin the suede boots and the leather soles.

Can soft shoulders be removed from a blazer?  I have a blue blazer that I love,  But I am not comfortable with the shoulders.

A good friend of mine is going to get married in a few weeks, and the bride and groom have asked all guests to add a bit of green to their outfit.

 

I was thinking, perhaps a green tie, but ties aren't allowed, they said. The groom will be wearing a grey suit with a green shirt, so I'm not sure if wearing a green shirt myself would be a good idea. Maybe a green pocket square. But how should I fold it, and what colour shirt should I wear with it? Would I be able to pull it off with a white shirt, or would I look like a complete idiot? I have absolutely no idea. The suit I have is quite dark. It's not black, more like a dark grey. I'm not sure what I should be wearing, and what would be a good combination. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

No ties allowed?  Get new friends!

 

Or alternatively, I suggest a light grey suit and a white shirt, with a green silk PS, green socks, and even green shoes if you can bear it.  

 

$12 from "The Tie Bar" for the large one (get the large one, it's easier to fold)

 

 

 

About $20 from "Mes Chausettes Rouges" - these are probably my own favourite socks.

 

 

 

 

There are a few options for cheap green shoes but they're not very nice.  If you're aiming a bit higher, I am personally lusting after these shell cordovan beauties from Carmina in Spain, about $550 to you.

 

 

But really, a wedding with no ties?  What the hell is wrong with these people?  (Normal advice would be: never wear a suit without a tie, it's wrong.)

Ridiculous people. Dress as a leprechaun.

Seriously, are they having a wedding or a theme party?

Hello people! I have noticed that you are a bunch of guys with great knowledge about basically everything concerning clothes. For a while now I have been looking for the suit in this picture, so I thougt i would try my luck here. From the looks of it it seems to be the most comfortable thing ever, and the fit is perfect. Would be grateful for any advice and tips on where to find it (or some other suit in the same category).

Suits are comfortable... When they fit right.

I have a green and white striped shirt that I absolutely love, with tie or without. (pretty much this, but as a stripe instead of a check, and in the tailored fit- seems to have been a one season thing). As long as it's a different type of green shirt than the groom, you should be good.

Olive chinos, shirt with green stripes or checks, linen jacket of some sort, green square that doesn't look like you're playing matchy matchy with your shirt, and you're set for a casual summer wedding. Oh, and black and brown shoes go equally well with olive, in case you're not used to wearing green pants.

I would embrace it, why not? They're your friends, and you can dress tastefully and while incorporating a lot of green.

I guessed that most of you would not agree with me, but you know, everyones taste is different, and I do like the look of that one. I have a zegna suit that is quite slim with wide lapels, fits perfect but it is more of a traditional fabric and it is double-breasted. I would like to have one similar to it that is single-breasted and in that fishbone fabric, which is why I am looking for it. Hope someone can give me a hint on where it's from.
