I actually have a choice between the aforementioned suit and my old prom suit

My old suit fits a lot better on the chest although the trousers are too long.. I'd much prefer if there wasn't any fabric collecting at my shoes, but alas I'm out of time and no time for alterations

my old suit looks like this: http://i.imgur.com/5jSUwPi.jpg

Would it be better to wear the older suit despite the trousers being too long?

Thanks for the input - I will definitely plan ahead in the future!
I'd go with the older suit. The pants don't look egregiously long from that picture

Go with the older suit. Get the pants shortened as soon as possible.

Fairly new to SF. Got my hands on this polo ralph lauren blazer/SC,and was wondering if its something special or just a nother blackwatch SC.(the bad news is that it has a decent sized hole on a sleeve baldy[1].gif


The deets Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Buttons look awesome,never seen these before and the embroidery is something new to me also(metal?)




Would appreciate any knowledge on this SC,thanks in advance everyone 😀icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I very often see the term "drape" used online. Can you explain me the meaning of it? What I understand is that the term means how clothes hang on you, but seems to me a quite elusive term and concept. Also, is drape correlated with the weight of the fabric? Is also possible something fits you correctly ( in terms of measurements) but "drapes" badly?

My daughter,the MD, says you don't have to worry about caner from the redness. Put a little vaseline petroleum jelly on the bridge of your nose.

The term 'drape' can be used in two contexts:

1. Generally how a fabric hangs (e.g. in a smooth line). Usually correlated with weight but clearly something that is stiffly woven will not hang well, whereas there are lightweight fabrics that exhibit drape.

2. The 'drape' cut, exemplified by Anderson & Sheppard. A suit made with additional allowance over the upper chest and shoulder blades, giving freedom of movement and comfort but also a distinctive aesthetic.

Try wearing a jumper as well, that should make it fit a little better.

One question, guys!

 

I want to buy a shirt from SuitSupply and I must know if a White Plain Oxford shirt's fabric is thick enough to be worn without a white t-shirt underneath. You know, if it's a see-through kind of fabric or not. :)

I can't comment on the shirt, but you should be wearing light grey undershirts, not white. They blend in with your skin color much better.

I never thought of that, thanks!

 

Well, if the shirt I am ready to buy can hide my skin well I won't wear any t-shirt to feel more cool, because it's hot here.

 

 

And the reason I am asking about the product is that there is no SuitSupply in my country. I will actually have to order the shirt. :)

Doesn't SS have free return shipping?
post #32382 of 33197

Yes, it has. I still don't want to get into all the trouble of waiting and then having to return it back.

Do I need size up on the jacket or do I need to get my shirt sleeve lengths shortened?

Thanks!

Without seeing the jacket buttoned (and preferably from a couple of angles), I can't say whether you need to size up. Although it doesn't scream "too tight" to me, fwiw.

It does appear, however, that if that jacket's a regular, that you should try on a long.
