post #24961 of 30369

I'm thinking about getting a Sterlingwear Authentic Peacoat in Navy, my only issue is the sizing. I've already searched SF for full measurements, but I couldn't find any.

 

5'9", 145 lbs

 

Chest: 38”

Arm (CB, held straight): 32.5”

Waist: 31”

Hip: 36”

Arm circumference: 12”

 

 

 

Would a 36R fit? I've been told to size down (and that SW's size guide isn't accurate).

 

Does anyone have measurements for a 36R, or have similar dimensions and would like to offer some advice?

 

EDIT: Specifically shoulder width measurements

The only thing they're lacking is shoulder width measurements. I'll go back and edit my post.

Search Google for "Tailor Dallas StyleForum" - it is sometimes more fruitful than SF's search tool.

Anyone know where I can buy solaro fabric? Want to have my tailor make me a suit.

Knock some sense into me...

Getting married in Greece this upcoming may, and am getting a suit made for it (and afterwards).

After reading several articles, threads, and posts in all caps saying "DONT WEAR BLACK YOU TOOL!", I think I'm pretty settled on either a charcoal or dark grey suit. My question is, do I try to coordinate something with my tie/square and the wedding colours (purple), or just go with the best colour/pattern for me?

I will have a boutonnière, so if guess there will be a "little" bit of the colours somewhere on my suit regardless...

What time of year will it be? You'll die of heat exhaustion if you don't get the fabric and its construction right.

At my own wedding (wearing a medium gray three-piece) I forewent a square in favor of the boutonniere and wore a light gray glen plaid tie. I think "our colors" were green and dark pink, but that only mattered for the flowers and invitations.

If it got to be a big deal with your fiancée you could probably get away just fine with a wedding-patterned tie (glen plaid, shepherd's check, etc) that has purple accents; I'd suggest making sure there are some black-and-white photos just in case it looks like something you'd regret in twenty years.

Late May. We opted against the middle of the summer, mainly due to that fact. It will be a custom suit as well, so I'm going to be adamant that it is constructed in a way that I'll be at least marginally comfortable wink.gif

I was thinking of running a 3 piece, just so I can ditch the jacket if things get too warm, and still retain some semblance of formality.

I've got a work holiday party/dinner tomorrow night and was looking for thoughts on my choice of wardrobe.

The dress code is open but most people dress in business attire. They're mostly boring bankers in blue and gray suits.

I like to push the limits a little so I was thinking I would wear a nice, fitted, dark blue velvet jacket I have with the slim black tuxedo pants from my tuxedo. I was thinking white shirt, though not a tuxedo shirt, and either open collar or with a black silk tie to dress it down a little.

Will I look ridiculously formal around all the blue and gray suits? I don't mind standing out, but I don't want to look like a complete tool, especially since our well-dressed CEO attends the event.

Thanks!

if so, what's the best course of action? i'm referring to NICE ties (i have a stain on a charvet that i'd love to get out)

A SF poster named Despos is a tailor in Dallas and does bespoke quality work - tons of people here rave about his work, too. He may not do basic alterations but you could always PM him and ask who he recommends in the Dallas area for alterations.

Well, it's tough to say absolutely, but I can tell you that if I were attending a work-related social event, and all the men there (including me) were wearing traditional, conservative blue or grey suits, and some fellow then showed up wearing a velvet jacket and slim-fitting tuxedo pants, yeah, I might well think he was a tool. Or at least that he lacked some common sense.

Your desire to "push the limits a little" is fine. But not so much at work-related functions, full of bankers in blue and grey suits, as in purely social occasions. And a velvet jacket and the slim-fitting pants from your black tuxedo, would leave you pushing the limits not just a little, but too much. Sometimes, it's a fine line separating "creative limits tester" and "the fool." Do try not to cross that line.

@tcln1456  - you;re probably gonna want a 34. I've got pretty similar measurements to you and that's the size that I got last year. sold the coat because I didn't like the fit all that much and here are the measurements from the 34R I bought and sold last yr:

 

P2P: 20.25"

shoulder: 18"

length (back): 30"

sleeves from shoulder: 24"

sleeves from pit: 17"
