Your post basically seemed to be completely ignorant of anything but a narrow stereotype of seersucker, and needed to be countered so that you didn't turn the other poster away from a perfectly acceptable mode of dress.
 


I mistakenly bolded too much of your reply, meant to bold that I am aware they are seersucker pants alone, not that I am aware they are seersucker pants and worn on their own.

 

Besides, I was giving him my personal opinion. No doubt people would come along with better suggestions than I could give. Also, I would find the jacket more versatile than the pants.

Typically, one quotes the question they answer, like I forgot to with yours.

How do you think this blazer fits me?
post #29779 of 33297

We're gonna need more pictures than that. Also, have the pictures featuring you straight on.

Okay I will take some more pics but looking at is what are your first thoughts if you don't mind me asking?

Jacket is a hair tight at the buttoning point, and too short (trendy) for my tastes.

post #29782 of 33297
I understand the jacket is too trendy for your tastes but is it wearable? Does it fit well generally for a trendy jacket?

What does the drop refer to when it is mentioned in the tag of pants? (not a suit)

No. Buttoning point too high. Sleeves too short. Pulling at the button closure. Shoulders look tight. 

 

Basically, it's a size too small. And it doesn't look trendy either.

Should shorter man wear single button suit (vs 2 or 3 buttons) because it shows more of the shirt and make him look a bit taller?

post #29786 of 33297
Technically a one button would provide a similar silhouette to a two button as the closure remains in the same place.

Yes, however, a one or two button suit does help those who are shorter.

One button RTW is very difficult to find.

In this case your personal opinion would be wrong...
Re pants.

I do agree that the jacket is quite wearable by itself as well.

Button stance would matter more than amount. Higher button stance elongates the legs.
