What shirts go well with green trousers such as this one:

I was thinking white with red stripes or maybe some darker blues. Don't really like the look of the pale blue with it.

 

Burgundy shoes are OK though, I think.

I would like to order some pants and have a question on taking measurements. I'm 6'1", 175 lbs and pretty slim. I'm looking for a slim cut similar to Incotex for casual and business wear, but nothing too tight or hipsterish. 
 

When ordering shirts, folks on SF usually recommend adding 3" to the body measurement for a tight fit, and 5 inches for a slim fit. This advice has been spot on for me. 

 

What are the guidelines for the following pant measurements for slim and regular fit? How much should I add to my body measurement on the following metrics to get a good fit?

 

1) Waist

2) Half Hips

3) Hip Front

4) Thighs

5) Knee

6) Ankle

 

Also how do you recommend an appropriate rise?

WHat kind of fabric is this? It's a RL dress shirt and is very cool and smooth. Thanks.

Find some good fitting pants and take pant measurements for best results. If no single pant is good you can make a table of good fitting features and combine.

I'm afraid my local tailor (unfortunately not my usual one) screwed up badly when cuffing my trousers. I asked for a no break, and he probably made them 2/3 cm (about 1") too short, so that socks are always exposed (at least, that was the impression I had when i tried them very quickly and while wearing casual shoes).

 

Tonight I'll try them on with a bit more time and while wearing formal shoes etc. In case my suspicions are grounded, is it possible to lenghten the trousers after having them cuffed? Or is the fabric somehow ruined where the current cuff is?

 

(They have a 4cm - 1.57" cuff)

 

Also, this is a brand new suit I just bought, and I really love it. In case there's nothing that a tailor can do, what should I do? Ask the tailor for a refound? I mean, his mistake seemed quite obvious and objective. Too bad I didn't try them over there, but I was in a hurry and I thought that screwing up such a simple task was virtually impossible (or at least it never happened to me). The suit is from SuitSupply and they don't sell their trousers separately, so buying the same trousers is unfortunately not an option. I'm so mad right now.

White will look very sharp.  A navy sweater, or cardigan, will be good, too.  Red stripes could be Christmassey or Clownish, but maybe we are not picturing the same shade of red.

Thanks for the suggestions. I agree navy would look good. I am personally not a huge fan of white shirts, but maybe white with some solid blue stripes such as the one posted above would work.

Try a white/navy bengal stripe.

Assuming there is sufficient hem underneath, there is no reason to worry. The tailor will undo the cuff, steam press to remove any creases at cuff, lengthen trousers to your desired length, and recuff.

Normally I wear corduroy pants (that have 'jean'-style pockets and rivets) with no crease down the center of the leg. And I wear cords that have trouser-style pockets (and tabbed fastening waste band, etc.) WITH a crease down the center of the leg.

 

Question: can I wear the latter without a crease as well (to make them more casual), or will this just look off?

 

Thanks!

I vote yes, plus you're still going to be cool for the Beethoven reference.

Thanks! I'm gonna give it a try...

 

(Oh, and let's not forget Schubert, Bruckner and Mahler references as well...:D)

What, we're ignoring Dvorak and Shostakovich? Do they wear uncreased corduroy trousers or something?
post #24479 of 33197

You make a point. But when I hear the term '9th symphony' my mind doesn't go thinking Dvorak (yawn) or Shostakovich (just another one of his too many...). I guess I'm just not into their 'cords'.

 

The great 9ths are: Beethoven, Schubert, Bruckner and Mahler. We all know this. C'mon...

Which of these sport coats should I get? Looking to expand beyond my basic navy patch pocket SC and want something a little louder yet still versatile, and of course in good taste foo.gif.
