Is it just me or is the tie looking big against this suit? Personally, I think the tie looks like it is going to eat this guy's head.

@thefastlife : yes, in this sloppy and decadent world it will be fine.  Tuck your shirt in, wear a brown belt, and either the half brogue derbies or the loafers would work.  But "smart casual" to me would suggest wearing a jacket, with or without a tie, and I'd lean towards the shoes with laces.

Does a deep deep brown suit go very well with an asian man(me) of this skin tone?

 

I'm between http://awfel.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/products-asian-man-smiling-white-450-298.jpg and http://d1mxyp5ceukbya.cloudfront.net/images/glee-harry-shum-jr-gq-550.jpg

 

This is the suit :

It's a great colour.  Wear it with pride.

My tailor just started selling some neat looking microfiber pocket squares on kickstarter. See them here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nicholasmonterotti/microfiber-pocket-squares-made-in-america

I'm stuck as to which one I want. I currently only have a white linen square, but want to work some more pocket squares into my outfits. I'm leaning towards the patch. Obviously 12x12.



Thoughts?

I don't really see the appeal of polyester pocket squares.

They're all horrible.  You can get a 12" silk square from The Tie Bar in a million different colours for ten bucks.  And then you'll want one that's bigger and nicer.  No.  Don't encourage it.

Here's is what the description is

Anything will help thank you

Can I please have some opinion on this suit?

 

I am curious about the sleeves. Are the sleeves of the suit too long?

Or are the sleeves of my (inside) shirt too short.

 

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks,

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!

Or is it none of the above? I was thinking the first one IMO.
First one, unless you're Hugh Heffner in which case go for number 3.



How high up my back should I wear a messenger bag?

They are an ingenious invention, as they can be used to clean your glasses, tablet computers, etc. I would not wear them every day, perhaps, but they are ideal for long flights. Declan has much nicer ones, however.

Too tight around the seat, thighs and rise. I challenge you to wear them for a whole day and report back as to how comfortable it is to wear. You will NOT be standing all day so your trou need to be COMFORTABLE. I made this mistake with altering OTR trousers. I now have a 9" leg opening and ample room in the seat & rise without being tight. My rise has to be at least 11.5" cause I wear them below my navel.

Point taken, thanks. It's a very light cotton suit but I'll bring a back up just in case!
