Hello, I recently signed up in the forum and wanted to ask how would you wear a vest. I don't know what it would fit with.

Quick question:

I came across this guy on the internet and I really like his style. Does anybody know his name?

If I did I would not tell you: as a friend, I must do all I can to prevent your imitating that hideousness.

Hello fellow SF members,

 

I will attend a networking event on campus later in the afternoon. The dress code is business professional and I am planning to wear my charcoal suit. They would probably attach some sort of name tag to my suit, probably the sticker/ adhesive kind if not the clip-on or safety pin kind. Anyway I am kinda worried that these things will damage my suit. The charcoal suit is probably the same one I'd use in job interviews later. I would appreciate your inputs.

 

Regards,

^ If a name tag with the clip, attach to the breast pocket of the jacket.
If a safety pin, maybe through the lapel hole if you'll be concerned of it damaging the suit.
If a sticker, put it on your forehead (sorry, couldn't resist). In serious, sticker should be fine on the suit. Can always dab a sponge and clean if it does leave any kind of residue when peeling it off.

Thank you nmoore82 for the solutions. You got some wicked humor there ;).

I don't wear manbags or girly loafers, nor a sportcoat to work, I actually like only how the trousers and cardigan match, all the rest I didn't pay attention to

Edit: that goes for all his pictures actually (I have some stored on my PC for inspiration). Some way or another, I like the way he is able to combine the 'basics' into a very nice outfit.

Wearing a jacket to work is a good thing.  Though choose one that isn't two sizes too small - the "schoolboy in last year's blazer" look is for nancy boys.  As are sockless loafers, unless you're on or at least next to the beach.

 

But, alright then.  I shouldn't have doubted you. :)

Probably best under your shirt

I took them to my tailor and he said to return all of them due to fit. I am very slim and the suits not so much. I am 4'10 142 31

After this discouraging time do you have any suggestions of suits and what do you think about his opinions?

Is anyone interested in the suits before I return them?

Pictures will be posted soon.

Thank you

How slim is 4'10 and 142 pounds? I'm 10 inches taller and 10 pounds lighter, and I'm not super slim.

Most people are going to tell you that you should wear a vest as part of a (matching) 3 piece suit or not at all.

Oh that's what you meant by a vest - I see slang for a waistcoat - we would call that Chav speak in the UK. Chavezness has travelled the atlantic oh my Lord:butbut:

Under 6ft is considered quite short in the UK - often times we find that shorter people tend to cover up the height issue with things that distract the eye ie expensive clothes and fast cars, good looking women perhaps. I suppose that being short is never a problem unless you aren't too well off.

What are you talking about? The average height in the UK is 5'10:

I'd consider one standard deviation above average to be far from "quite short".

Any recommendations for olive chinos? Not looking to spend much ideally. $50 or below. Something that fits slim.
