Sneakers with suits should always be a fashion statement. CM side of styleforum is generally against that kind of perspective in general, so it's debatable if even that is ever a good idea, but wearing sneakers with a suit with the plan of being low key is a bad idea.

I echo my earlier statement, although my tastes run somewhat conservative so that's not surprising.

Self-Deprecation is a personality trait that disqualifies one from being a hipster, or so I've read.

Hope I'm in the right place...looking for a quick answer. Love this tie. Think I might have found it on Alan Flusser's website, (but it's not there now) Looks to be a grenadine weave.

 

Any idea? Love to find the seller.

 

Thanks!

Quick question regarding an overcoat/outer coat and how it should fit - 

 

I nabbed a coat that I think fits pretty well everywhere except around the armpit/armhole area, where it feels incredibly tight and restrictive, even without much motion at all. I'm trying to pinpoint exactly why, and I feel like the coat is somehow pushing whatever I have on underneath - a hoodie, a suit jacket, anything really - in on itself and making it feel super tight. A suit jacket for example would get an extremely exaggerated X when I put on the coat even though it fits perfectly without the coat.

 

Is this an issue of the armhole being too high? Too low? Too small? How much arm movement should I reasonably be expecting when I'm wearing a suit with a coat over it?

Brooks Brothers might  have something similar.

I think your overcoat is too small.

Many thanks!!  Not that was a fast response. I'll go to their website and browse a few places using the name to narrow the search.

Again...thanks!

I am looking for a place to get slim-fitting trousers and dress shirts (preferably in NYC but online works too) at a reasonable price (<$100 for shirts, <$200 for trousers ideally).  I have had enough of Brooks Brothers--I'm fit but definitely not skinny, and their "extra slim fit" cut still fits like a tent before tailoring. Does anyone have any suggestions to fit this description? Thanks.

^ Brooks Brothers Milano Fit trousers aren't slim enough for you?
post #28964 of 33448

Milano is not bad I guess, but all the shirts I've bought there are awful.

Kamakura shirts run 79 dollars. Visit their store on Madison ave to see if their sizing works for you
