Where can I get a belt that matches my AE walnut colour shoes? Thing is I need to be able to find the belt locally here in Toronto.

What I've seen sellers do is put a notification up on the main auction page at the top of the description; 'We'll be out of the shop from x to y, so be patient'.

where can i find slim summer weight shirts (linen, light oxfords) for a decent price, under 100???

also, what is a good look for a summer wedding.

Navy suit, tan oxfords, any suggestions on shirt+tie combo? Color and patterns if possible? Wedding reception, but not the usual traditional kind so I figured I'd pull out the tan shoes

These are pretty close to true to color. Just checking the combinations of fabrics, colors and patterns, no need for a fit critique.

Do tell me if I need to axe the square. I'm very bad at squares.

If you hate them all no need to respond.

Thanks to anyone who can advise.

All combinations, with the heavy textured jacket, paisley tie, and colorful ps is too much. Too many things competing for attention here. A plain tie and ps would look better I think.

I have a jacket that fits perfectly except that it is slightly too long. The sleeve length is even okay, but the hem is about an inch and a half below where I'd like it. Is it possible/reasonable to have a tailor recut the hem all the way around?

Even if so, don't listen to this...

Shortening is possible, but is not a simple or cheap alteration.

you cant move the pockets. shortening may bring the bottom up too close to the pockets.
measure your other suits pockets distance from the bottom.
measure on the distance on the suit in question. if shortening 1and 1/2 niches will only
bring the pocket 1/2 inch off your other suits pockets spacing then its ok.

Can you please provide the names of some reputable semi bespoke suit makers?  Don't say Indochino

Do you mean online MTM programs?  If you mean bespoke, what city?

MTM online stores ... if that's a good idea ... not sure.
 

I am willing to try a MTM shirt and go to a suit if they provide a good quality item.  

 

I am also in Canada so if you happen to know that they ship here, all the better.

post #13409 of 28664

MTM Shirt services can be good, once you've nailed down the measurements (which might take a few times), but I've heard way too many horror stories about MTM suits.

Two quick questions:

 

  1. I submitted a post yesterday asking for opinions for a color palette to match a coat. The post included a couple small photos. As of this morning it has not appeared in the Men's Clothing sub forum. Is there a restriction on new user posts? Or did I post the question in the wrong sub forum?
  2. I understand what "drop" refers to in the context of a complete suit. What is it supposed to mean in the context of individually sold coats/blazers?  I have a couple coats that display drop values on their tags. I'm wondering if they were previously part of a suit.

 

Thanks in advance

 

[Edited] Spoke too soon. It looks like my post has finally appeared. So the first question is no more.
