I prefer navy to grey.

What part of the shirt do I increase to rid the "v" wrinkle

You should try over at he tailor's thread, of course, but it looks like the shoulder seams are sitting too far forward, to me.  If they sat higher on your shoulder, that would, I imagine, help the shirt to lie flat.  So, the front panels at the shoulder seam, would be the answer to your question, I suppose.

How is the fit on this blazer? I was fitted at J. Press for it, but I feel like it is slightly too long in the body.

I agree it's a bit long, but I would call it wearable, if I got a really good deal :P

Is it something that could be shortened up a bit because there aren't patch pocket?

Expensive alteration.

hey dudes, not sure if you've heard of the Stafford Deacon wingtip boots over at JCP that were well received as a budget dress boot option.

anyhow, i picked up two sizes as their sizing is wonky to say the least. the 10.5 D feels big...as when worn with dress socks my foot moves around quite a bit. the 10 D is SNUG to the point that is constricts the width of my foot and is somewhat painful.

now here is the question: do i stick with the tight ones and hope they stretch out OR do i go with the larger ones and use thicker socks/inserts.

if the larger one is the better choice, can you point me in the direction of some decent inserts?

thanks.

You do neither.

Rather, you return the 10D, and see if maybe there's a 10EE available. Chances are, there won't be. (Simply because all too often, footwear is available in D width only.)

But either way, life is too short to wear boots which "move around quite a bit" when worn. And much too short to put up with the discomfort and possible longer term problems arising from wearing boots which are painfully constrictive.

I bought a pair of Grenson navy leather brogue oxfords. What color trousers would be particularly complementary? I only figure black or khaki. Open to suggestions though. My medium grey trouser didn't seem to look quite right.

Be careful if you decide to shorten.  If the tailor's sewing is to tight, the front will pucker out and you will regret it.  I know from experience.

 

Cheers,

It's at a reasonable length. Longer than current styles dictate, longer than I prefer, but not absurdly so. More traditional coats are cut longer, and it's about in line with that. Which would seem appropriate for J. Press. They're not exactly known for fashion forward cuts.

Navy is too big/long and not waisted enough either.
post #29310 of 33406
Would the most reasonable course of action be to have it taken in a bit at the waist and wear it with a pair of fuller pants?
