I like it. I assume we're overlooking the too-long pants and the terrible shoes.

Impossible to say without seeing it on you. But if you aren't comfortable in it you shouldn't wear it.

We would need more pictures, but compare the picture to this one:

The balance on the one posted is different, maybe it's just on the model, but the length strock me as odd.

I'm on the fence w/r/t a (pure linen) dark brown sport coat for summer. It has tan/khaki contrast buttons, and I'd pretty much wear it exclusively with khaki/tan trou and blue shirts. I already have a very light brown/beige SC.

 

Any thoughts on wearing dark brown in the summer, even with light colored combos/accents? In my head it looks good, but you just don't see it often.

 

Here's the jacket in question:

That's kind of my point; you've shown an older man's styled DB coat. Which is perfectly fine, but modern styled DBs are cut more like this:

I think it's a good investment. I have a brown linen sport coat that I wear all the time. Besides khaki/stone it also looks great with white trousers and all kinds of gingham / tattersall / etc. shirts that contain white and some lighter colour.

The length of the coat, primarily.

Hi everyone,

I have a question regarding this shirt.  I am thinking about sending it for measurements to make an MTM shirt.  Any comments on the fit?  













A MTM dress shirt? If so...try the shirt on with a jacket and re-post.

Any thoughts on vest to go with single button peak lapel black tux?

Basically, assuming it will be low cut with 3 buttons, I am wondering if the opening should be U shaped or more of a V. Also, should it have shawl lapels.

Is there a standard format for this?

Low cut is the important bit. U shape is more classic, but a v would be fine if you like it more. Shawl lapel or no lapels is personal preference.

Would you ever show ankle at a wedding? My conservative brother says it would be too distracting (and thus take attention away from the groom), but I think these "smart fit" cropped pants look so slick:

Also, if you would wear these at a wedding, what shoes would you rock them with?

Your brother's right.

If you want to wear weird clothes that'll draw attention to you, go have your own wedding.

What about wearing those pants with some eccentric or colorful socks? They would be matching color to my date.

The question to ask yourself is how high the flood waters are going to be at that wedding or any place you would wear those.  If the water hasn't come up past the vamp of your shoes, you're best off not wearing those.

EDIT: actually they're polyester too so you're even more better off not wearing them ever

Do not wear them,
regardless of sock.
Do not wear them;
they do not rock.
I do not like them here or there.
And as for a wedding - definitely do not wear.

Wearing them to a wedding is an idea I hate,
even if your socks match the color worn by your date.
Listen to your brother's rants
and do not wear those awful pants.
