That's generally right. Sartorial generally refers to tailored clothes, or an interest in clothing, so a sartorial look would be someone wearing well fitting, well proportioned clothes that compliment his build, coloring, etc.

Don't know what your price point is, but these are nice ties:

I was going to get a few BBBF shirts from the webstore. I like the fit. Thought I read something about how the shirts have changed in fit (sleeve length?) and quality (different manufacturer?). Have BBBF shirts changed and how?

I didn't want to make a new thread for this (but might if I don't get replies).

Is this peacoat too long on me? I know the sleeves are too long, but how about the body length? It didn't look too long when I tried it on with jeans, but with these pants I think it might. Also, I think the shoulders might be a bit too big but I think if I went down to a M (the one I'm wearing is L), the waist might be too tight. I bought it online at Banana Republic: here is the product page.

The cut of that coat is slim-cut, and thus is not suitable for your body type. In fact, it has a reversed effect. Either M or L will not work. Just return the coat and get a more fully-cut one.

Thanks for your honest advice Onix.

Any coats similar to this that you would suggest for me? (links) Thank you.

I have a last minute black tie event that I have hired a tux for.

Question is, the wing tip marcella shirt supplied fits like a sack of potatoes.

I have a plain white shirt, double cuff spread collar, that fits like a dream.

Which shirt should I wear given the situation?
post #4059 of 33196
What suit of tux is it? Bow tie? More importantly, what sort of event is it? Is black tie properly adhered to? Generally you should be OK.

Could anyone tell me where I can get some regular to slim high waist pants with side straps? I have short legs compared to my torso, and try to avoid belts. It would be nice to stay around 100$ with 150$ tops. Something on the lines as this

Wear the shirt that fits. And wing collars almost always look tacky- with or without a tux. Save them for white tie when they're actually required.

The only problem with your shirt will be the lack of studs- and really, nobody's going to care too much about that.

I just discovered that I have to make a fairly important presentation on short notice, something like a week. I've been revamping my wardrobe with good success, but so far it's only been mostly SW&D.

So I have been meaning to get at least one nice suit and a pair of AEs, and was weighing options like TaT and some other online mtm. Additionally, due to my proportions I've never seen a OTS suit that fit even reasonably well. Given that the deadline is too soon for MTM, what would my best option be?

a) Go to mens warehouse or equivalent, buy a suit, have it tailored, or
b) Wear my best button-down and tie, or
c) Something different, more casual?
and what semi-temporary shoes should I kop?

I guess I'm asking if a mediocre suit is better or worse than an above-average shirt. If you had no MC attire and needed it on short notice, what would you do?

It really depends on what type of environment this presentation is to take place in. If you think a suit is a necessity, then get a decent one. My knee jerk reaction is Brooks Brothers - standard business conservative stuff. They also have a decent range of different cuts and price points at any of the larger sized stores.
