It just needs a good pressing. And a trashcan.

Would this be considered an 'unstructured blazer'? Im trying to figure out if this would give the same look:

Jacket #1 looks very much like it is structured.

Where do the lower s. Mantellassi shoes, without the fancy heel nail patterns, rank among other shoe makers in terms of material and construction?

Where can i find dark green/olive dress shirts? Oxfords are okay too, but i need them neck/sleeve sized.

I don't think it's quite unstructured. Certainly there's not much structure, but there's at least a minimal bit in the shoulder that the unstructured blazer you posted wouldn't have. But if an unstructured jacket fit well, it would certainly give a similar look.

Budget is around $300, but would be willing to put up the money for something really special (Alden?).

Here is what I own:
Black and Brown cordovan AE Leeds
Black AE Park Avenue
Black AE Bel Air Split toes
Burgundy AE monk straps

I wear the brown leeds the most. Any suggestions? I was thinking either a pair of AE macneils or a pair of suede longwings. I'm looking for something versatile that will last a long time. Thank you all.

Macneil sounds good, or if you're looking into suede, the AE Player's Shoe (they need a better name for that- I get that they gave 'em to all the golf pros, but really) in dark chocolate is lovely.

Stopped by a local "custom clothier" to see what they had. Asked about low-mid range staple suit.

Was shown some swatches...quoted $499 for a MTM Hardwick. It was 100% worsted wool, but not super 100,120 or higher.
Does this seem reasonable? Any other questions I should ask? I'm bring in a few older suits that need some tailoring to get an idea of their work. Even though it probably won't tell me too much.

My guy charges more like $1100-1400 for a "staple suit." Of course, they're american-made, with multiple fittings, etc. I'd be skeptical at that price point for a "good" starter suit actually MTM.

Ok, so I am not sure how this forum is with Newbies but here goes:

I am 6'2", 230 lbs. wear 38X34 pants and 17 1/2 to 18 neck, 36-37 sleeves shirts

The problem I have is wearing anything but Polo's or button up dress shirts just doesn't look right on me. Most of the time t-shirts and most polo's are too short in the length and I end up looking like the Liberty Bell. Granted, I could stand to lose a bit of weight, but I think my problem lies in my torso length and my non-broad shoulders.

I feel that I have to wear my XLT Polo's on lazy days around the house and anytime I am out and about in public because that is the only thing that seems to fit. The real issue with that is that anytime I see a shirt in a store that is actually XLT, it is the most hideous looking shirts I have ever seen.

Where do you guys suggest I start looking for decent looking XLT t-shirts and polos?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Hey all, I have a suit that I haven't worn in some time, I was wondering if I could get some comments on the fit? The pants definitely look too long to me, but is there anything else you guys can see?

Commisioned my first MTM shirt today here at the local tailor I found. In order to avoid the baggy look I said to the tailor to make it without pleats. Got the email few minutes ago about the pleats - whether I meant back or sleeve pleats? I don't know what they mean by that (the sleeve pleats). An explanation/help would be appreciated

The jacket may be one size too(you can see the extra material in the back) big for the current slim-fitting style (which is coming to an end of its cycle). Go one size down if you can. If this is a suit you own, a tailor could make some adjustments to the jacket and pants. You'll get heat for the shoes on SF too, but I think you're just asking about the suit. Overall I think it looks OK. I'd put a solid navy tie in place of that silver? one.

I've been looking for a new suit for about 2 months now. I haven't been able to find anything on sale and in my price range. I dont want to spend more than $800. Any suggestions? I really want to stray away from ebay.
