I'm a pretty fashion forward guy but I bought this navy blue Burberry trench and nothing I try seems to go! The trench itself is short length and really dark navy, I want to wear it kinda business casual like with some slacks and button up....etc.... Could even go with a suit. Could you give me some slack/shirt/cardigan combos as well as suit/shirt combos?

BTW I'm not a skinny guy but I'm not enormous either : 6'1, 190 lbs, shirt size: L


Thanks guys in advance .

Hi there, does anyone know what kind of jacket this guy is wearing? Does anyone recognise a designer? Thanks.

Is there such a thing as a "3 roll 1" suit/blazer? I just saw a J Press blazer at the local thrift store that was 3 button, but the 2 top buttons were on the underside of the roll, making it essentially look like a 1-button jacket. Anyone ever seen this before? Also, it was 100% wool, but the wool looked and felt "fuzzier" than regular wool. What is the name for this?

Brushed wool.

And, supposedly, a couple of fittings as well.

How did I do? Besides the jacket sleeves, I can't help but shake the feeling it's a little too boxy. Maybe something about the quarters being too closed?



Would appreciate some comments before I took it to the tailors about those sleeves.

It could probably do with a wee bit of waist suppression. Sleeves can be taken in by .5". Quarters are also too closed but a good tailor can fix that.

In the future, your shoulders could probably extend out .25" each way to give the jacket more shape. Also see if they can do a bit more structure in the shoulders too.

Who was the tailor?

Navy is a neutral so it should go with everything. The problem is that it looks too dark so what you need are lighter colors to really make it pop.

I suggest a fire engine red V neck, white shirt with khaki chinos. Either that or try a pastel yellow or lime green V neck. No dark colors (e.g. forest green, burgundy, black).

If you're wearing a suit, then definitely mid grey. Actually, only mid grey.

Not too bad, I would adjust the left pitch a little as well, unless you are extending the arm a little unintentionally. I would consider reducing the pant leg a bit, it seems that it folds a bit too much at the back. I would also adjust the shoulder pads a bit, take in the waist of the coat, and shorten the sleeves.

Looking for suggestions for a business-casual lightweight coat for spring/fall. Typical work outfit is a button-down dress shirt + medium gray slacks. Should I just go with black/charcoal? Other ideas? Under $150 please preferrably under $100.

Brown shoes, brown belt. Perhaps a desert boot or chukka. Any tie should be slim and dark, but if that shirt does not button fairly snugly around your neck, do not wear a tie.

Don't get tricky for an interview outfit. White or light blue, no stripe or pattern. There is a reason these are wardrobe basics.

Bag the tie unless it is a requirement.

or


Well i don't think black tie will be good with brown belt and shoes,i'm not a tie expert but i think solid dark navy or dark purple will work.Regarding the shoes,no I wouldn't wear those,you are looking for classic clothes in skating/streetwear clothes brands,that won't work,just MHO.

Well there's a lot of things you could do here

First choose your shoe colour- you could do black or brown but a cognac/tan burnished brown colour.
You could even do a boat shoe in brown

Belt- you could match your shoes or go with a striped/ patterned belt in blue/red.

Ties- yellow tie, navy striped tie, red tie, or any combo there of plaid blue/red etc...

You could also add a navy blazer/sport coat or cardigan

Or a gray cardigan

Can't seem to find the answer to this in threads, and it's not a big question: I'm thinking of trying to go MTM/bespoke for my dress shirts. My usual B&M does them and I'm around Q Custom Clothier. Is there usually a minimum order for such things (at the very least not to be rude)? I saw that Despos has a 4 shirt minimum.
