I have a solid Navy suit and wanted to add a vest to it. Would I try to match the color of the suit or are there other color options that would work? Thanks

Half-Windsor?

And I shall hold my tongue about Fox News lest I start to rant.

I've always liked some of Fox's fascis- err- fashion...

would you say a 3" lapel is a good middle ground between a slim lapel and wide lapel?

Hi - I would like to know some measurements for the J.Crew Ludlow Chino Pants in either 30 or 31 waist.

1 - From the crotch straight across to the edge
2 - Just above the knee

If anyone could help I'd appreciate it.

That jacket is similar to a CWU-36 US military flight jacket (the green one in this photo). They are common on ebay and sell anywhere from $50 to $150, maybe a little more for a tan one. Some will have velcro for patches and you probably don't want that. They are available in a desert tan color or green. It is an excellent jacket, and fireproof to boot.

What is a good choice of tie with a navy birdseye suit?
Figure I should minimize the texture in the tie

Thanks

Don't match the color unless the cloth is the same (i.e. same designer, same line). For a navy blue, colors that spring to mind are darker tans and browns. Ehaberdasher used to have a nice selection, though it seems sort of sparse right now.

Brooks also carries them in stores, I believe, but not their website. At least the one near me does.

All mediums are sold out on Orvis. Already checked that - thanks though.

With a TV fold, are the rolled edges supposed to be visible (sticking out of the pocket), or pushed down in the pocket?

Anywhere you can find a navy blazer like this in cord size 38S?

Tartan vest in Black Watch plaid or Royal Stewart plaid could work: http://www.kilts.com/vests.htm

What is meant when sellers speak of a drop in sit size? For example (I'm making this up) "The suit is a 54 R drop 7". Thanks.
