What colors would they go well with? And how formal are they? E.g., should I pair with a suit? With slacks? With jeans?
I mean they are brown derbies they will go with most things from "dressy" jeans to most suits, though some prefer not pairing derbies with suits of course. It's fairly versatile. I'd say they work best in the middle of the spectrum, so a trousers and jacket/blazer, mid-gray flannels or khaki, etc.
Go to a tailor, and have him put on the buttons.
Not sure what the stitching on the shoulders is for, but all the high-end brands (which I don't shop, so IDK) do it.
A size-question on blazers/jackets.
What are some brands that would fit me length-wise in a 48R? I'm 187 cm (6'1).
To cover my behind I need about 78 cm back length. I go for a 48L (94) in Suitsupply but I'm having a hard time finding other jackets that fit well.
I have a few Bogliolis in their Coat-line which is decent, but still too short in my opinion. I tried a K-jacket and it was better, but still short I guess. Kiton was horribly short, LBM is too short.
Do you think a separate sportcoat should be shorter or should I still go for the 'correct' length?
I'm new here and not nearly as knowledgeable as some of you. I'm starting an online mens accessories retailer and the only tie wholesalers I've found so far have ties that look good, but would have to be priced on the low end of the spectrum. I would probably price them around $20. I know many of you buy ties for a lot more but I was wondering if, from your experience, there are a substantial number of people who buy ties for that price.
Any other tips/hints would be greatly appreciated.
Hi guys, bought a casual blazer on sale. Can I get some advice on sleeve length and jacket length? Jacket length looks a little long in the picture, but it falls to where my fingers curl and first knuckle of thumb...so is the length okay? Sleeve length looks a little long as it goes just past my shirt cuffs, but is it bad enough that I should get it tailored shorter? Any other thoughts? (Don't mind the back sticking out, I haven't taken out the stitchings in the vents yet). Your help is greatly appreciated!
I want a pair of basic black oxfords. I had previously thought of the Church's City Line Hong Kong, but given that they've increased in price by about £25 in the last year or so, I don't think it's worth it.
Was thinking more a basic C&J http://www.crockettandjones.com/product/connaught-black#.U-370_ldWSo
A better option than the Church Hong Kong, surely? I did like the toe box of the Hong Kong...
Am I right going for the C&J?
