post #27721 of 33197

Recently got a good deal on these OTR pants from GANT.  I am concerned about the fit, specifically in the seat.  I want to know if these are workable before I hem them. I would greatly appreciate any advice you have to offer.  Thanks in advance!

Is there any difference if fit between suits and sports jackets?

 

I.e. could i provide a tailor with measurements for my best fitting suit to copy for an SC and some trousers and that would work out ok? or should jacket be longer/shorter/looser fit/etc?

What do you call shirts with a contrasting strip where the buttons are (on bottom strip you only see it unbuttoned)? What is the consensus on this look? Is it strictly casual? Does it usually go with contrasting buttons? What are good color combinations?

ABL: stick with the links and square you had in mind, and the white shirt.  I'm thinking, though, that you need some more visual interest somewhere.  I guess adding a flower will make a difference, but how about a nice tie pin/bar too?

You are out of your mind.

Having established that, first let's give you the correct answer, which is that you should be wearing a morning suit for a daytime wedding.  For an evening wedding, a dinner suit (tuxedo) would be fine, or if you want to wear a lounge suit, then it should be a dark one.

Now, assuming that you're ignoring all of the above and wearing your light grey three button suit as shown above, then we clearly have limited resources with which to work.  But as we're supposed to give helpful answers, work with it we will.  I'm guessing you're young, she's pregnant, and there's some talk of firearms in the lead up to this sudden nuptual, so no more lecturing from me.

What colour and type of pants could I wear with this sport coat? I am planning on wearing it with a shirt/tie/pocket square combo to the Chester racecourse in June, would this be acceptable? Thank you! (The shirt/tie combo in the photo is from the seller, not my own.)

Warm and earthy khaki colour I would say, possibly even brown or terra cotta but that's more risqué.

Thanks, Mimo. I'm actually starting to lean towards looking for a different tie (one with a little more character -- but still wedding-appropriate). Any suggestions as to where I should look?

Opinions on these for a first autumn/winter sport jacket. Interested in any useful comments on warmth, versatility, godawfulness... First 3 are 300gm 90/10 wool/cashmere from Drapers. Felt very nice and soft with a little fuzz. 4th is 340g s120s from Hunt and Winterbotham. I haven't been able to see a swatch for it though but my tailor can order it in. fabrics are darker than they look as my iphone washes out the color a fair bit

I looked into tweed and thought it might be too heavy for Australian climate.

Any other suggestion welcome. feeling a little out of my depth for winter clothing.

Ok, so I just found out that my great-grandfather had a diamond stickpin that I can use. I like the general concept (of incorporating a family heirloom into my wardrobe), but have no idea to wear it. Any sense as to how something like that would look as part of my outfit? I assume you wear this like a tie bar?

The following oddly-designed PRL loafers (latex combat sole, furry lining??) are listed on ebay. I usually wear AE balmorals, but need something a bit more relaxed. YAY or NAY?

post #27732 of 33197

Has anyone ever had good luck having shoes stretched? I have a pair of gorgeous suede captoe shoes that have the best suede I've ever felt but the toebox is slightly too small. Has anyone had good luck getting the toebox stretched? I'm probably returning these otherwise.


Thanks!

Looks like a great fall/winter shoe.

I am looking to buy some quality shirting fabrics online. So I can go to my tailor and do CTM.

 

Can anyone recommend me some websites? 

 

I also want to know how much fabrics do I need in order to make one shirt (I usually wear size S for every brand).

 

 

 

Thank you for your advice :)
