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

Why? You can't find any otr shirts that fit your shoulders?
post #25493 of 33127

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 #25496 of 33127

^^^^ 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 #25498 of 33127

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.

It's short to my eye.

Does it look a bit big on the shoulders as well or is that just the padding?
