gents

 

am i mental, or are the buttons on this RLPL huge?

Possibly both, but neither are my issue: I think the buttons are a touch too high.  I know that's an RL style thing. that I guess matches proportionally with the high peaked lapels (that I love).  The trouble is, with a layout like this when you put them too high, the top too buttons look like nipples.  It can also make the jacket look boxy IMHO. Hard to say without seeing it on you, but I'd say just half an inch lower would be perfect.

Is it just me or does the right nip look higher than the left?

Hey guys, new to this forum, but wanted to ask a quick question.

 

I recently picked this up on ebay for 100 dollars 

 

http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ltnlhcygLD1r5n48zo1_400.jpg

 

it's from h&m x Versace 2011 line. 

 

what's your thoughts on it and did i just made a mistake buying it? thanks! 

 

(Disclosure: i've been trying to find a nice cheap shawl collar for a formal event and came across this one and the navy lanvin x h&m collab. if anyone can help me find a nicely priced shawl collar suit that'd be wonderful!)

If it was a full suit and depending on how it fit it could be passable. Just don't go wearing it with Diesel jeans and an Ed Hardy T shirt.

I think the whole jacket on the bust is tilted up to down from left to right.

We will see if this is a quick question or not. I can always make a new thread if needed. But here goes!

 

I am having a suit made for me soon, in a "semi-bespoke" process. I will be professionally measured, and the company takes posture notes, etc... It's a completely custom suit, and I want to be able to tell them what I'm looking for well enough to give myself the best shot at success with this suit.

 

Basics, I know I want a medium-light grey three piece suit, notch lapel, slim, modern fit. I'd like the vest to also have a notch lapel on it.  No cuffs on the pants, no pleats.

 

I don't know what else the person might ask, but I wanna be prepared, should I have pics of what I like? How does one explain a preferred lapel width? I have no clue what proper terminology is!

 

Thank you

-Scott

Shot in the dark -- is anyone familiar with Hackett blazers?  It looks like this is a Hackett jacket (going by translated page), but I can't find it.  Cotton twill jacket with white buttons.  http://losmalditosmocasines.blogspot.com.es/2013/07/outfit-navy-blue.html
