Who makes the Valentino line of men's suits? It seems to be more expensive than the Valentino Roma line.

Hi everyone,

 

I have a question related to the sizing of suits and overcoat. I am normally have suits with size 36. Now, I am intending to buy an overcoat (online and have no chance to try that overcoat directly). So, my question is normally, what size the overcoat should be? It should be size 36 or it should be one size larger (size 38) to cover a suit. I don't want to try a wrongly overcoat and return it to the seller (or at least, reduce the ability to have to return that overcoat).

Although you intend to purchase on line, nothing prevents you from wearing the suit into a local men's store and trying on topcoats.  While there may be minor variations in fitting, you can browse SF and come up with a list of likely makers with similar styles (modern, ie slim with high armholes, classic, ie not slim, Ivy League, etc) , if not the actual maker you intend to purchase.  Try them on and see what size works.   You'll be more likely to get a good fit.

Seems to me autumn is one of the best times to wear dark green.

Overcoats are sized with the expectation that they'll be worn over a jacket. He'll be a size 36, in pretty much everything but super slim South Korean fashion cuts.

I'm getting married soon and can't decide which shoes to wear. The options are walnut, bourbon, brown, and black. The ceremony and reception will be in a brewery, so it won't be a very formal affair. What do you think?

Thanks! I wasn't sure if the walnut was too light for that suit.

Not at all, it's nice. Now get those trousers hemmed. smile.gif

My vote is for bourbon with a different tie.
post #28780 of 33185
Now that I see it on a properly calibrated monitor, I agree that the bourbon is nice too. The brown and black are too dark.
post #28781 of 33185

Thanks for the feedback, CruzAzul and WorldWideWafflz. I'll polish the bourbon and walnut and go from there.

How much do finamore shirts usually retail for? I was just in the outlet in Milan and they were selling them for 65 euros in my size. Is that a good price?

hey guys, as a follow up to my Jamaica wedding attire question. i think i am going with light grey trousers.

what material should i go with that looks smart but won't wear too warm?

also, for on top i am going with a navy blue linen blazer and a white linen shirt

where can i find a somewhat dressier linen white shirt that will look good with this outfit?

and lastly...will white bucks look really odd with this? thanks.

White bucks probably would look a little odd with grey trousers. Have you considered off white trousers or cream or even khaki? A cotton / linen mix would keep a crease but wear light as would good quality linen.

i hadn't really thought of that but those other color ideas aren't bad. you think that would work for a beach wedding? never been to a wedding anything less casual than a suit and tie.

any brands to check out for the trousers and shirt?
