Since I use tapered would 511 be a good option or too skinny in thinking on shifting to 511 since they're cheaper and there's more variety than 508 and 520 which I fancy more. Appreciate comments
You might be better off asking in the Steetwear and Denim forum. This is Classic Menswear.

I've ordered from AE. The invoice was on a piece of paper, inside the box.

Wouldn't it be pretty odd to have the list of contents printed on the outside of the box?

Thanks

I've only ordered from USA merchants to Canadian addresses before and the invoice was always taped to the outside.

^It may have been customs.

Thanks for the advice in the thread. I visited the Suit Supply in DC and was impressed by what I tried on. Their slimmer fits fit me off-the-rack, without having to take in the waist. I had the opportunity to buy the JCrew Ludlow for half off though, so I bought that instead.

I noticed that I SS run large for me. I'm a 36R in their Napoli and London fits, but a 38R in Ludlow.

Well, it's better to overpay and get it done right. As an aside, I'd never have my clothes altered by a drycleaner. Finding a good tailor can be difficult, but once found, it's a godsend.

Is wearing a nice cashmere cardigan under a suit considered professional business attire?
post #24922 of 33197

I'm not sure I'd go there, personally.  I've never been in an office where I needed an extra layer of clothing, and outside I'd put an overcoat on.  That's not to say it's wrong - I think if you're spending a day at your desk and just want to be comfortable with your jacket off, why not?  But I wouldn't wear it to an interview or an important meeting with financiers.  A bit like a suede derby. :)

Gawd, that JCrew tweed is amazing!

I thrifted a pair of their moon pants and those things are freaking perfect. I'm taking them to the tailor to have them lengthened a hair, but they're the best. I tried on one of their blazers the other day and didn't want to take it off.

 

They did an amazing job with that line. It's pricey for JCrew, but totally worth it.

It would be odd, and if your suit is tailored to SF standards it would make your suit a bit tight.

I would probably wear a sweater or sweater vest that doesn't have buttons, personally.

For any eBay sellers, is it generally better to spend $5-10 to fix/mend an item before selling it, or just sell it as-is?

I would ask this on the ebay thread, but I think it depends on the issue and how much you think you can get for it.

Yes, because that's exactly what styleforums users dress like!

 

And because an obdc shirt, long sleeve cardigan, and a blazer aren't redundant at all.

 

I guess I shouldn't spoken in absolutes though. I think a sweater (even perhaps one with buttons/zipper) could look good under a tweed blazer, under a suit jacket though?

 

There are exceptions for everything, but vests in 3 pieces aren't full sleeve and that's what you're essentially replacing with a cardigan.
