The buttoning point is a little high for that specific jacket. Ideally you want the buttoning point of the vest to reflect the buttoning point of the jacket; a 3-button SB or high closure DB jacket would look fantastic with it.  For single-breasted vests, the best look tends to be when the buttoning point of the jacket comes right below the first or second button; with the 2-button jacket you've got on you can see a whole 3 buttons of the vest and it doesn't look as aesthetically correct.

Hey Everyone, I was hoping for some feedback on my recent MTM experience with these gray flannel trousers.  Any tips for the next pair?
 

 

 

Thanks in advance!

Ugh, that's what I feared. That sucks; but thanks.

If it's any consolation, that would have been a rather casual vest colour for a wedding. Personally I think you're better off without it.

Assuming this fits I am thinking of giving Tweed a try with a J Crew Sportcoat mainly because the styling is modern enough not to be mistaken for my grandfather's sportcoat.

 

Two questions:

 

My complexion is olive, eyes light brown and my hair is very dark brown.  I look Southern European/Hispanic/Turkish etc.  I am never quite sure about how to wear olives and browns.  Thoughts on this?

 

I want to wear this jacket as something I can throw on with jeans and a sweater very causally like outerwear.  Do you think this works?

 

Thanks

I have this old suit that is an olive with cream birdseye.  It is 100% wool medium weight.  I used to wear it sometimes to summery events but this seems wrong now and I might get a real summer suit

 

What do you think of the styling?  I like the fit but the button stance is a little high. Would you wear this in autumn to an outdoor wedding or get rid of this?  And in the same vein as above does this color flatter someone with a dark hair and an olive complexion

Quick question, I'm going to a wedding, and have to wear a salmon/peach tie, I'm wearing a dark blue suit, and have a light complexion (reddish hair/light skin/blue eyes) is a white shirt best or can I wear something with a little colour? What about a pocket square?

Hello,

 

I've maintained a fairly limited belt lineup to date (mostly just brown and black leather belts), so I decided to add a bit of panache to my wardrobe. However, this is my first double-ring belt. I followed the site's advice when ordering (Your belt size is two sizes larger than your pant size. If your pant size is 30, your belt size is 32.). I typically wear a 33 or 34 waist size, so I went with a large belt. According to the site's sizing chart, if you wear a 32-34 pant size your belt would be a large, so I went with a large size. I know this style is a bit casual but does it seem too long?

I would advise off white or white shirt. Light blue might work too, depending on the exact hue and saturation of the tie.

Nice combo with the brown shoes. I wouldn't pick the beige shoes though but the browns are fine. Maybe add a brown or dark green sport coat if you fear this is not dressed up enough. Switching to a light blue or lighter green shirt will give you more options in the sport coat department. Edit: and don't forget wearing a brown belt.

It is a bit long, but if your t-shirt is covering it then no one would notice.

Do you guys think this suit's jacket would work worn as a sportcoat? Seems to meet all the requirements - pure linen, patch pockets, contrast buttons, etc. I'm having trouble finding a plain grey linen coat that fits me as well as the SS Havana sportcoats do. I currently have a cotton one, but I'm thinking of relegating it to spring/early fall as it wears a bit warm of course compared to linen in the height of summer (90-100+ here).

Grey odd jackets are a lot harder to pair than navy, beige, browns, greens.  But I have a grey DB with patch pockets that I wear with blue or tan trousers, and I love it.  So the short answer is "yes".  The longer one is "yes, but there are easier options to match".
