Thanks Smudge and polar-lemon.....so in that case I guess I should go 38S. Any other suggestions for particular tuxes or even just an approach to tux-deals (e.g. e-bay or buying off of this thread or buying used or ???)
about to buy some MTM dress shirts. i'm a bit on the short side 5'8". what collar for my shirts should I choose that are appropriate for my height or won't make me look shorter? I understand regular pointed, but a small back or a large back of collar? longer point or shorter point?
It really depends on your neck's length and the shape of your face. If your neck is long, get a 2-button collar; if it's short, then get a lower height collar. Simple as that. As far as the collar shapes go, cut-away is a safe bet for everyone. Narrow collars work best for wider faces and vice versa. While the collar point length is very personal, it should really correspond to your shoulder and chest widths. Make it proportional to your body. I'd say 7cm for a cut-away is pretty standard. Also, one of the main concerns for me in cut-away and wide-spread collars is to make sure the collar point tucks under the suit lapels when the suit is buttoned. __________________________________- Question: Should I get a black gingham shirt from MT? I like the fabric, but I'm unsure if I ever will wear it. I need some group-think!
I passed up a chance to buy this Austin Reed puppytooth jacket for $130. It's now out of stock. Some of Austin Reed's tailored stuff is made by Chester Barrie. Is it unlikely that it would have been made by Chester Barrie? (Retail was $240)
