Who's Mister Ned?
post #9797 of 30383
I surely will research it some more.

And your replies have clarified it a bit. (I am guessing your point is that there is no clear cut rules that govern it)

Thanks again.

It's a pocket square. Who the hell cares? It's strictly decoration.

No. They would be appropriate in all but the most formal offices.

I know it isn't liked on here but I need a cheap suit and saw a good deal on a CK Collection one. I thought all of them retailed for over $1000? This one was marked as around $700. Is it a mistake?
post #9802 of 30383
I would say that 700 is too expensive for the quality of the suit you get. It's stil 700 for a suit wich probably has the same construction as a suit from Zara or H&M.

I bought saphir shoe cream for my G&G's in vintage rioja calf, I't turned out to be for cordovan skin. I'm just worried that the polish won't give my shoes the protection they need if i use it. I tried to return it but they didn't have the color i need. So the question is if the cordovan cream is sufficient or if i should by something else?

This might be a dumb question, but here goes: will a normal tailor do modifications to outerwear? I got a great deal on a RLPL field jacket. It fits great in the shoulders and the length, but the sleeves are way too long and the body is a bit bulky. I'm tempted to bring it into a tailor, but I'm not sure if there's something special about modifying outerwear (e.g. because its water-resistant) that means your average tailor shouldn't mess with it. Thanks!

Monk straps are fine for business casual.

But seriously, why is tying laces annoying? Do you have arthritis?

I am wearing a shirt very similar to this - http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/brooks-brothers-non-iron-dress-shirt/3175599?origin=category&resultback=6498 - Essentially white background with a grid check. The grid lines on my shirt are 1/2 black and 1/2 blue. The black and blue lines go in both directions (as opposed to black horizontal and blue vertical). Shirt is Robert Talbott.

I am wearing a charcoal suit w/ black shoes. It is an evening wedding at a country club, so a little dressier is okay.

Pocket square options are white linen, or various shades of blue with white piping linen, or none of course.

Please recommend a few tie options. I have never worn this shirt with a suit as I typically wear solid white or blue with texture with this suit.

I was thinking diagonal stripes in blue. white, and another color, but not confident on that look.

Any recommendations would be great. Additionally, specific links to previous wearers of a similar look would be even better.

Depends greatly on the material and construction of the jacket (ie the stitching, seams, etc). It is best to bring the jacket into a tailor and see if he feels comfortable. This also goes without saying, but you should seek out the best tailor you can. I have heard horror stories of tailors claiming they can alter outerwear, only to produce terrible results. In NYC you should have a plethora of great tailors, however.

Sorry I mis-worded my post. I was wondering if CK Collection made some cheaper suits that retailed for sub $1000. I saw some CK Collection suits for around $200 with a marked MSRP of $700. I thought all their suits were over $1000. So I was wondering if they made a cheaper range of suits or something or if it's a typo.

i have a serious answer to that
i have a very slim fitting suit... the pants are very slim fitting and tight, especially around the thighs
i am afraid that one day the pants will split in the thigh area when i bend down to put on socks or tie my shoes
