Whether the pick stitching on your lapel was done by machine, or by hand. Proper fit - particularly in areas which are difficult and/or expensive to alter significantly - should be your #1 priority.

Extremely good advice, for anyone buying a suit, regardless if it's hus first, or his hundredth. I also agree that there is no substitute for trying them on, physically, in a store, even if you buy in line in the end.

Due to the crappy weather in NYC, I want to go more casual tomorrow. However, my company dress code requires a tie. The best I would be able to do here is a tie with a sweater. Does anyone do this? Is it even "correct"? What kind of tie would one typically wear this way?

 

For reference, I will be wearing corduroys, button-down and a wool pull-over sweater.

I do it all the time, just make sure your tie isn't too dressy.

Rep stripes, and neats tend to work well with sweaters.

Do tailors generally charge again if the initial result is not to your satisfaction?
post #26361 of 31071
that would depend on the tailor. generally the ones that charge a premium will redo the work until you're 100% satisfied. If it were the tailor's mistake, he or she should really rectify the garment at his or her expense.

Any opinion on wearing a black belt (matte croc) with Alden color 8 shell shoes? Is Brown better?

As someone else said - additional work should be free if they made a mistake.

But if someone asks for an alteration but doesn't know what they're talking about, that's a different story. Like if someone asked for break with their pants without really knowing what that looks like, and then wanted no break.

Yes.

 

I find pretty much any mix of browns and tans, ever burgundy, rubs along OK as it's in the same colour range.  And actually, I dislike matching belts and shoes - it's like a matching tie and PS, kind of mail-order-catalogue-trying-too-hard.  The exception being black.  Which I think must always be worn with black.

Hmmm, I always felt burgundy shoes only matched burgundy belts.

I'll have to look at some other combinations and see.

Yeah... belt/shoe should play nice with each other. They don't need to be identical twins. That looks too "mail order iGent" or some crap like that.

Thanks. No mixing black and brown leathers is a personal rule as well, but color 8 has (to my eye) strong black undertones. None of my current brown belts work at all. I suppose I'll look for a different brown belt.
post #26368 of 31071

Maybe the problem is "nearly" matching, as it would be with black.  Try going further away with the colour instead of trying to get closer.

They both fit really well. Good job. smile.gif

I'm interested in having some items (suits, SCs, and shirts) made CMT. To do so requires obtaining the cloth/wool, obviously. So, several questions:

1) Where do SFers purchase their cloth/wool from?
2) Are there reputable online sellers or do you shop locally?
3) If you live near DC and purchase cloth locally, could you share the location(s)?

I've seen a few sellers listing stuff on B&S but was hoping to find places that have more to offer. Apologize if this has been addressed already...my searches weren't turning anything up.

Thanks in advance for your responses.
