Those wool pants look fine to my eyes.

 

Can't help you, but suitsupply is well regarded on these forums for its price range. I've got a nice Gieves and Hawkes suit, but I only really like it because it was really on sale, I don't think I'd feel the same at full price.

If you don't mind me asking, what was the 'sale' price which made you feel it was worthwhile. 

post #28818 of 33197

Maybe 250 pounds. I might pay a bit more, because I really was happy with that price. It was a linen suit though.

Attending a wedding:

Will wear a grey suit, black shoes, solid white shirt with a navy blue pin-dot tie.

Thinking of wearing a linen white pocket square with red edges. I'm thinking the contrast in color of the red edges of the pocket square and the navy blue tie will work. Agree or disagree?

Hi all, this might be the topic to ask this:

 

I have way to little experience and just started to dive into the world of shoes. I have always loved nice shoes, but never went any deeper about construction and all materials and techniques.

 

A friend of mine found this company called Morandi that produce the shoes below in Montegranaro, Italy. Since he gets them directly from the factory i can get them for around $250, but since my inexperience i can't see any hints how these would stand vs a pair of AE for example. They are welted and use calfskin, that much information i got atleast!

 

 

This company is family owned and don't care about homepage or advertising, so it's impossible for me to get more information about the shoes. So any help from keen eyes about the build and any clues about quality would be grateful!

Just do plain white.

Where can I get dress belts in small sizes? I typically wear around 27-28 pants. I usually end up on the second to last or last hole on size 30 belts after they stretch from wear.

You can try Narragansett leathers as they'll make them to your specs. I just ordered one and waiting on it right now, but reviews I read seemed pretty positive.

They look nice, but I wouldn't say any of them are really dress belts.

Meaning no offense, but perhaps the Boys' or Ladies' department at some retailers?

Or maybe you could buy a somewhat longer belt and have it cut down.

Me, I wore a Beltmaster dress strap (no holes) today. But I don't know what Beltmaster's minimum size is (and I'm sure no 27-28", myself).

surprised nobody's already mentioned Equus Leather, one of the SF affiliate vendors. You can customize length. I have three of their belts and am very happy with them.

I just received my first decent bonus, and I'd like to invest in a couple of decent suits. There is a Gieves & Hawkes nearby which has a sale on, offering RTW suits for c.£600 (USD 1000). Next door to it is a Suitsupply, where I could buy a suit at a similar price but it would be their top level tailoring service. This is a made to measure service, the details of which are set out in full here.

I'd appreciate it someone could offer me some guidance as to which of the above would be better suited to my needs (I'm looking for suits which can be worn on a daily basis, and will be buying extra trousers), and the pros/cons of each.  Alternatively, I'd be grateful if someone could suggest other options (e.g. Cad & the Dandy/A Suit that Fits).


Thank you,

CB

Quite a few London establishments provide extra trousers with their suits - Ede & Ravenscroft for example.
