Depends on where you're going out to. If your objective is a club with dance music and poppers and lots of anal sex then it's a perfect shirt.

I think then you would need to make some life adjustments.

Any opinions on this jacket?  looks to be fused, and im not in love with the lining to say the least, but I am in need of a sport coat for business/casual use over the summer and beyond.

 

Thoughts and suggestions welcome, thank you.

Absolutely. Dark shirt with bold stripes and "unique" embellishments (contrast hem & buttonhole stitching, flashy collar lining, hell even the buttons are sewn on with contrasting thread).

The paisley lining is admittedly out of the ordinary, and I agree that it's one of those touches that seems fun and whimsical. Unfortunately, it's whimsical enough that I think it might reduce the blazer's suitability for business wear, and you do indicate that you have in mind wearing it for business. In fact, one could go so far as to suggest that the only really "special" thing about the blazer is the lining, and with you already saying that you're not in love with the lining, why buy this jacket?

The "lining pulls out to make square" feature seems fairly worthless, to me. An actual pocket square gives you far more versatility, and it's not like a pocket square is insanely expensive, hard to find, or too large and heavy to conveniently store when not in use.

Also, according to the link, only black versions are still available. Not a problem, if you've found it somewhere in navy, but if you're thinking of getting it in black, well, I don't have much fondness for black blazers.

Honestly, navy blazers aren't exactly hard to find. If it were me, I'd absolutely buy a "normal" navy blazer, with a non-paisley lining, from any of a dozen other sources, and be happier than I would be with the one about which you've asked. If I wanted to "paisley" it up a bit, for some specific occasion, I'd wear a paisley necktie or pocket square. (FWIW, the two navy blazers I wear most often are by Anderson-Little and Brooks Brothers. The former costs about $175, and I like it when I'm traveling, as it's more wrinkle-resistant than a 100% wool blazer. The Brooks is probably no more expensive than the Robert Graham Dexter jacket - especially since Brooks does regularly run sales and offer discounts - comes in a variety of fits, and is an all but iconic garment from which you could get many years of use. Heck, if you wanted to do this on the cheap, I would imagine eBay is lousy with mint condition Brooks blazers, selling for less than the cost of a decent necktie.)

Thanks Michael, you're right  I am shooting for a navy blazer (saw it navy on another site without a good description).  Preferably looking for one under 300, but willing to go up to about 4.  I will check ebay but usually BB don't fit me very well - the shoulders are too padded since my shoulders are broad to begin with.  But i'll have a look online and see what I can come up with.  Will also check out the anderson-little blazers.

 

Thanks for the advice!

Going MTM for a tuxedo, unfortunately only satin lapels are available, choice of midnight wool or black wool/mohair, question is would you go double breast shawl or single breast shawl, feel like the satin lapels in a DB would be a bit much, what do you think?

I tried on some Santoni shoes at nordstrom today, and they both looked fantastic and seemed very sturdy. Anybody have any experience with this label? The price is a little under $600.

I just picked up double monks on the Inca last, but I'm unsure of the sizing, seeing as this is my first pair of really "nice" shoes. I'm a 10D in Allen Edmonds, so I picked up a 9UK from Carmina.

 

The ball of my foot fits really nice and snug (seriously, perfect), but I'm getting the feeling that they're a tiny bit too big on the heels, especially on the right shoe. When I pick up my foot, my heel slips just a little bit, and I'm honestly not sure if that's supposed to happen at all. I took a bunch of photos and lumped them into an album, so if you guys could take a look at them and tell me what you think, I would really appreciate it.

 

The photos with the pen are for indicating how much my foot moves when I lift up my heel to take a step: The bottom of the pen points to where the top of the shoe ends when I'm not stepping.

 

Are these too big, or am I freaking out and being paranoid? Remember, the ball of my foot fits perfectly on both feet.

 

Cheers.

Note: I rolled up my jeans to get clearer photos; I have no intention of going full pilgrim with the buckles and high pants.



Quoting this in hopes that I can get some feedback--sorry if this bump is too soon.

 

Any help on the sizing, guys? If they're going to break in, I'll wear them, which I'm itching to do, but I can't do that unless I'm sure; I (obviously) won't be able to return them if I go out with them on.

have you tried searching the forum for "heel slip"?
