Brown horn. Maybe MOP if it's a summer blazer (spring/summer fabric).

Matching suede would probably be too much. I wear my bucks with just about anything that goes with the outfit. Brown smooth leather belt, ribbon belt, web belt, thick tooled leather- basically anything but black. Bucks, and suede in general, don't need matching belts, just a belt that goes with the overall outfit.

I picked up a herringbone sportcoat and was wondering when it is technically acceptable to wear it. Its linen and I wouldn't mind wearing it year round but some friends have said that it looks tacky wearing it if its not cold out (I think that they may think its tweed). Also, the only thing that I can imagine myself pulling it off with is dark jeans but any recommendations would be welcomed.

Link to the coat (khaki black is the color)

Just wondering but how does one really size their jacket if measurements are given?

for example, i just had my back and front shoulders measured out of curiosity:
front ~ 17"
back ~ 18.5"

Most of my shirts measure at about 17-17.5" or less. 17.5" fits great, 17" fits good but a tad tight (dependent on brand it seems though).

I just ordered a jacket that measured 17.5" in the shoulder, will remeasure after I receive it back from tailor. Would it have been a better idea to order one with a shoulder measuring at 17.3" ? Since I am wearing a shirt under the jacket, and even an undershirt at times, the 17.5" shoulder width should be okay though?

tempted to try, the difference lies in the cut:
Slim size M = 17.5" shoulder width
Reg size S = 17.3" shoulder width

so weird...

Thanks!

Quite a quandary, the linen would almost dictate that it be used for more warmer weather. How about using it for evenings when It's a bit hotter than usual? Either that or get a new group of friends that knows what tweed looks like smile.gif

Any sense in getting a UK 46R jacket and tailoring it down? I usually take a 44R but this jacket I've found seems fairly unique, I can't find anything else in the same cloth and colour. Too much work to bring it in enough?

Is there anyway to get the cuffs on a french cuff shirt stiffer? I have a super 170s that is extremely soft. The problem is the fc is very soft too and as a result doesn't fold over cleanly. Putting cufflinks in always wrinkles the cuffs too.

incotex are all over the place with measurements. one size 31 can have totally different measurements from another. i have incotex that are size 29, 30, 31 and 32 waist. its best to go with measurements for each one.

Regarding linen suits. Is there a point where they become TOO wrinkled and if so, what might that point be?

i just bought my first french cuff dress shirt at brooks brothers
it came with the silk knots in the cuffs
i do not own any cuff links yet
is it ok to wear the shirt with those silk knots and not a set of cuff links?
or are they merely acting as a placeholder of some sort?
