Me again. :) I've decided to go with something different to event because I found this suit for good price. I'm not sure about shirt because of color and paisley detailing, maybe this one is more safe choice with same pocket square?

I'm new to suits, this is my first one, what do you think about overall look, fitment?

 

 

Picture quality is terrible, I'm sorry, suit is linen, really light beige.

My mistake was I applied saphir but instead of wiping it off I left it on overnight thinking it would somehow make it extra nice (dumb of me). Instead when I came back the next day I had those horrible spots on my merlot colored shoes.

Far too tight, return.

going to a wedding in July, and Ive a nice smart Navy Blue Paul Smith suit with an accompanying Lacoste White Cotton Shirt. Shoes are my favourite wing-tip duo-tones.. but I have no tie. Have a head of light ginger hair im looking for links to decent ties to match up the attire. Ive attache a really low quality photo if its of any help, but in an ideal work someone would just find me a tie on-line that would work... maybe even a pocket hankichief to also go with it.
any advice is welcomed.
Thanks


Dark green tie to compliment your hair. Try Kent Wang and Brooks Brothers for ties under $100.

Do you think they look fine? Thank you for your time.

*Both pics are supposed to be the same pair of jeans (they offer only one color) but with different lighting.

 

 


Second pair looks much better than the first.

Looking for places I can get some nice wool dresser trousers/flannel pants in size 28 around/under $200 range.

I know of Epaulet and Howard Yount, but I need some alternatives.

 

Also J.Crew Ludlow Suit Pants (Classic) in Italian Chino though fits me well. Anything similar?

 

Thanks.

7cm tie width vs 8.5cm? my favourite tie is 8cm, but unfortunately the one i want only comes in the two aforementioned widths (i'm leaning towards 7cm).

A tailor I met was offering a wool blend with viscose/rayon. I've been digging around the Internet and have not found a mention of this blend. Anybody had any experience? Or is this tailor just talking nonsense. 65%wool 35%viscose/rayon by the way.

Really, I even thought about waist suppression because jacket looks too big o.O What should this guy say then :O

At what point do you guys break out (at what date range or temperature level or weather conditions) the pastels and more vibrant colors, e.g., royal blue and powder blue sport coats, light beige, tan shoes and leathers (although I don't really wear tan leathers near as much anymore in my work environment, unfortunately).

 

I've been bouncing back and forth on sunny 85+ days with those (no tan shoes) and then a piece from my transition spring to summer wardrobe the next when it's still hot, but rainy; we haven't shaken rain every day yet, and it's getting annoying - I'm ready to commit, for lack of a better way to put it.

Anything above 80 is fair game for me. Wear what feels right for any given day.

I am looking to buy Florsheim men's dress shoes. The description says non leather soles.

Is this actually plastic? Will they wear well and be comfortable to walk in outside and inside?
As they are quite expensive I want to know if I should only buy leather or rubber soled shoes and stay away from non leather soles.

Please advise.

Thoughts on either of the attached suits?  I recently got a SuitSupply gift card and want to round out the wardrobe with two suits that are versatile and (relatively) timeless. I wear suits 4 days a week and already have all the staples but I'd rather have something that isn't going to look out of style 5 years from now.  Also want to avoid any design that looks "cheap."  They are SuitSupply Lazio Grey Stripe and Blue Stripe. Thanks guys.

I tried starting my own thread for an answer to this question; but unfortunately there haven't been any responses yet. 

 

I was polishing my Park Ave's last night, and really started to notice some interesting creasing on the lateral side of my shoes. 

 

I tried doing some research, but it seems most people have creasing in the front on top (where you should); however, mine haven't really developed creasing there, and I've only worn for about 10 times. 

 

Please view the pictures and let me know if this is a manufacturer defects, or this is normal.

 

Thank you!

Were they like that when you bought them? Because otherwise, while it doesn't look normal, I think it's more likely to suggest a horrible mismatch between the shape of your foot and the last/size than it suggests bad workmanship. AE will likely take them back regardless, and you should take them back, and try on some shoes in different lasts and size. The 5 last the Park Ave is on is stupidly long and narrow, and will simply never come close to fitting many people.

And the shirt is a no-go with that outfit
