Good advice here.

Thanks for your help.
For this winter I would like to buy ( or have made) a pair of trousers. I own a pair of mid gray flannels and I wear them with vneck jumpers, cardigans and odd jackets, and I'm in doubt if buying another pair of flannels ( in light gray this time), or opting for something different like cords or moleskin trousers or obviously something else.
What do you think?

I'd consider something like a whipcord / cavalry twill. Just picking the example of Dugdale's White Rose Caldonaire:

Something like the above, or from another mill with a hint of green to it, would give you something formal enough to match with an odd jacket, warm enough to do well in winter, and yet also not look out of place with a jumper or cardigan.

Looking for a mid-rise single pleat navy chinos. Kind of like Unis Davis, but they don't have my size. Any suggestions?[/I


Disregard, please - Found it.

A picture of you standing naturally, with your arms at your sides, would make it much easier to judge these things.


Thanks, guys. Finally got a chance to take some better pics of the sleeves. This is driving me crazy btw. Between the two shirts, the brown checkered shirt has a slightly larger cuff opening. I know the difference is subtle, but if you had to choose between the two, would you guys say that the blue shirt's cuff actually ends more appropriately? Thanks!

I have a potentially silly question: Is there any reason to get the sleeves hemmed to the proper length (about 1" too long right now) for a tuxedo shirt that will be worn underneath my jacket?  Right now it looks fine as it just bunches up a bit under the tuxedo jacket.

@Kimistry Brown for me, blue is too short.

@JonSmythe They will ride down over time or stay extended in situations the jacket sleeve is further up.

As I say too often here, if you have come onto the web to ask the question it means it bothers you. Spend the extra few dollars and do it properly so you can relax in the knowledge your clothes fit properly. Otherwise you waste the initial investment in your clothes since it will always be in the back of your mind.

I am looking for a "handmade"  tie manufacturer in the U.S.  I used Adlawn Enterprises in NYC owned by Marty Glaser for about 20 years and had a great relationship with Adlwawn . Unfortunately Marty had to close the business, so I am looking for new company who take take my handpainted  sillk fabric and my labels  and cut and sew them into beautiful ties. These will mostly be small orders of  50 to 100 pieces at a time.

 

Because we are talking  about small quantities, this tie maker can  be located anywhere in the USA. I would be most grateful for this information.

Hi guys,

I am attending an engagement party in the city, which will take place in a pub - private hire.
None of my suits are light enough to be worn without looking like a wet sponge.
No dress code has been addressed, but I was thinking about going for off-white linen trousers, blue stripes shirt, navy blazer, blue grenadine polka dot tie, white pocket square and brown double monk strapped suede shoes - or suede loafers ?
Would it be dressed enough ?

Why not ask Marty Glaser whom he'd recommend? After having been in the business for all that time, surely he has a good idea of whom the best amongst his former competitors might be.

Quite possibly. You might even be over-dressed. But since you neglect to mention which city, which pub, or even which time of day, it's hard to know for sure. That we know nothing about the groom or anyone who will be in attendance, we've even less of a clue.

If you're familiar with the establishment, you're better qualified than anyone else here to judge what's appropriate to wear to a party there. If you're not familiar with the establishment (or even if you are), you could contact the person responsible for the engagement party and seek his advice.

It is in London, and it starts in the evening around 7 until late I assume. I have been invited by a guest with the bride's approval so I am clueless as for their expectations. I did ask my friend for the dress code, but she hasn't heard of anything.
The pub looks like "any regular pub" in London, it looks clean and is located in the city centre.

Yes

If you feel over dressed when the place fills up take off the tie nod[1].gif

Sounds to me like you've made a reasonable effort to find out how you're expected to dress.

The outfit you've described wouldn't offend me, if it were my engagement party.

Go ahead and wear it. And if you get to the party, and everybody else is wearing a suit (or is wearing jeans and t-shirt), simply act at ease and don't let it get to you. Appearing comfortable with your clothing choices is half the battle toward being well and appropriately dressed.

Thank you very much for the help. It is meant to be 24°C tomorrow, so I might follow your advice Cleav.
