I'm just surprised that someone wouldn't pick rubber soled shoes for wading through pools of liquor.

Seems like a waste to have a pair of leather soled shoes for that.

It's logical that you would want more fabric at belly then on the back, isn't it?

I want to use this tie by Drake's - a purple grenadine tie: http://www.drakes-london.com/online-shop/ties/grenadine/untipped-woven-large-knot-grenadine-solid-8cm-silk-tie-5987

 

I'm also quite bent on using it with my navy suit, but for shirt; white or light blue? I think maybe the light blue is a better match, but my dress shirt is a much better fit than the light blue one. (getting a new light blue from Luxire shortly, but not in time for NYE)

 

And secondly - can a purple tie be in (relatively) good taste? I bought the tie without really thinking about how to use it, I just loved the shade of purple and the texture of the tie, and as a result I haven't used it once. It's a quite modest purple, but still I often think it's a bit "too much".

I guess, just never seen it done that way. With a measurement that slim, I can't imagine he has a belly.

Can dress shirts' shoulders be taken in by a tailor?

You can have shirts darted. I think that's what you're asking for. It'll take the excess fabric and dart it.

 

Like so:

^^^ No, that is not what he is asking.  Darts are for the body of the shirt.  Shoulders are a different matter.  If something doesn't fit in the shoulders it means it doesn't fit and their isn't much a tailor can do about it.

I guess I am stuck with MTM rather than alterating OTR

post #25494 of 30155
Why? You can't find any otr shirts that fit your shoulders?
post #25495 of 30155

I haven't seen any quality (and affordable) makers with less than 17" shoulders, even just a half inch smalller. But then again I haven't done much shopping around yet and most brands do not post full measurements.

Have you tried making your shoulders bigger?

My feet have high arch and oxford balmorals look ridiculous on them. My question is, given my circumstance, would bluchers be an acceptable alternative?

post #25498 of 30155

^^^^ when you say they look ridiculous do you mean that they don't close properly?  do they hurt your feet?  how formal a setting? I don't personally put much stock, in this day and age, in bluchers being so much less formal, but context does matter, as does the rest of the style of the shoe.

I need to find this Herno-jacket:

 

http://bilder3.egmont.se/cache/7f/7f6f/7f6ff305a4e3d60c823f64f347debc0fe5eefe50

 

Prefferably online in Europe. But any will do.

 

Any ideas??

post #25500 of 30155

Picked up this jacket the other day for pretty cheap, fit feels okay to me, any quick opinions?  I can't quite decide if I want to keep it or not.
