Nice ties.

Alternative to Suit Supply's Blue Summer Coat?

I really like the jacket, but the price is too expensive. I would pay for the price if it came from a brand that is known for their good quality, like Barbour.

Do you folks find the pairing here to reasonably cohesive?

Would prefer pants to be lighter for more contrast but seems reasonable to me as is.

I'd go with a gray trouser, never was a fan of gray and tan.

Wouldn't light gray/dark gray look too much like a mismatched suit?

It's pretty obvious that that is an odd jacket. I think it would look great with a light heather gray, or charcoal. Maybe even a chocolate brown.

No. It's when the pants and jacket are very similar in shade and color that it looks like a mismatched suit. But with an obviously light grey/dark grey combination, it's often quite clear at a glance that the wearer isn't trying to pretend he's wearing a suit.

This is sort of the sartorial version of the uncanny valley.

This is why gray odd jackets can be a lot more challenging than they seem just by looking at pictures on websites when you are shopping.

I was just browsing and trying to learn about what makes a quality tie a quality tie. After doing some research I found out about the silk being "cut to the bias" or 45 degrees. Does this method of cutting the silk mean the stripes on the ties (the weave, not the pattern) will lie at 45 degrees as well? I'm just using Sam Hober as an example here because the ties on their sites don't have the weave at exactly 45° (see links). Btw, I'm just unaware and trying to learn, and just using Sam Hober as an example. Cheers.

Early in the 20th century it was not uncommon for men to wear a striped jacket or striped trousers which weren't part of a suit.  It's much less common today.

 

In particular, does anyone here have any thoughts on wearing pinstriped odd jackets or trousers?  (I’m not talking about orphaned suit jackets.)    Is it ever appropriate?   If so, how would one go about integrating them into an ensemble?

 

I’m asking because these days pinstripes are strongly associated with business attire, not sportswear, and so I’m wondering if anyone here would conclude from that, e.g., that to speak of a pinstriped *sport* coat is oxymoronic. 

 

Just wondering.

 

Cheers,

^ I am actually interested in this as well. I often see pinstriped, odd trousers not intended to go with any particular jacket... why?

LOOKING FOR A GREAT TAILOR

Can anyone recommend a Tailor in Boca Raton or Miami?

Does anyone know the best way to remove this antiperspirant stain from a bag strap? I've tried wet wipes. detergent, dish soap, and regular hand soap and nothing has worked.
