post #24091 of 33184
Does anyone have any information about a popular, American Made, 60s-70s clothing designer called Antonio Guiseppe? I own several articles of clothing designed by him/them, including the suit pictured, and I am hoping to find out some background history on the suit and the company who created it. I've been Googling for days with no luck. Any information you can provide is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Thank you for the thorough answer.

Nothing wrong with the colour of the shoes.  But those laces?

Nope, but get some proper laces.  And, not to anywhere too formal - i.e. a wedding.

what is the brand that carries the logo of three short rows of stitching on the shoulder seam?

I'm sure I'm picturing this wrong, but it sounds like you mean Adidas.

no, some minimalist logo I saw, no big deal, thanks.

Nope! Light brown/tan/burgundy/oxblood all go with navy. You should wear a lighter shirt though.

Hi all,

I have a university grad ball coming up in a month or so. From looking at last year's pictures, most folks just end up wearing a suit, with the odd tuxedo attempt (aka suit jacket + bowtie). Didn't see any true tux pictures.

I don't own a tux, and don't see much point in buying one since I will really not be wearing it for some time. What I do own is a very well fitting charcoal suit, so I intend on wearing that with black captoes and a white spread collar shirt with white PS. My question is in terms of tie: I'm debating between a black, navy, or silver grenadine. I was wondering on SFs opinion to help me out!

Not necessarily. But depending on the setting, the time of day, etc., they could be too light.

Often, an item is not so much "too light" or "too dark," in any absolute sense, but rather may be too light or too dark for a given situation.

For example, those shoes might well be fine to wear with a navy suit to an afternoon lawn party. But they might be a sub-optimal choice to wear with the same navy suit to a funeral, or to an 8PM opera performance, or to a job interview at a conservative law firm. (At all of which, black shoes would likely be the better choice.)

Are you against burgundy?

I'd do black.

Aw man have some fun with the tie if you're going to wear a white shirt.

Silver would look off imho. Might be better with a blue pinpoint Oxford.

Thanks for all the tips.  Yeah the shoes came with those laces, I already have a pair of standard laces, just havent put them on yet. I was thinking of pairing the navy suit with a white shirt and a grey tie.

Would it be a waste of money for a student (university) to buy a seersucker suit? I'm having a tough time thinking of when I would wear it...especially considering I have a backpack...which might ruin the suit...and that I don't go out to any place except the library haha (not drinking severely limits what you can do in school it seems). However I hear a seersucker is a staple wardrobe item. I'm not fantastic with style yet I'm buying pieces...excessively haha probably buying more than I'm wearing since I don't want to come across as arrogant on campus. I do wear most of my sportcoat-type things when school is out and I can avoid t-shirt wearer glares from the students. Needless to say, saw a 60 dollar thrift deal for a seersucker blazer and pants so just wanted to ask. 60 dollars isn't a lot which is why I'm considering this. If it was 150 plus i wouldn't even be considering asking. Thanks.
