Still, that combined with the waist size of 32 (standard drop is 6" from the chest size, so a size 36 has a 30" waist standard), makes me pretty sure the seller just mislabeled it. Theoretically you could take it in, but if the whole thing is a size too big that's best aboided.
You're looking for jackets with a pit to pit of ~20".

Thanks, I'm still REALLY new to this, first time I took measurements of myself was yesterday laugh.gif

 

I'll probably pass this one on, I'm not really in need of a suit right now, it would have been more of a spontaneous purchase.

 

But once again, thanks for such a thorough explanation ^^

What do you guys think about Ralph Lauren polos? Are they tacky or okay to wear?

They are like tshirts for adults. More SF approved polos, as it were, are those with actual collar bands and two-piece collars like these.

I loves me some Ralph Lauren, but polos with that stupid horse logo are tacky as hell.

You have a lot of (in my opinion) better choices. Most of my polos are from Avon Celli, Sunspel, or Kent Wang. It pains me greatly to say it, but Michael Kors makes pretty nice polos as well.

Since we are on this subject for polos should they be tucked in with shorts? with jeans? I am okay with tucking in with jeans but I don't know if I dig a shirt tucked in with shorts look.

Are you incredibly in-shape?

(Brooks Brothers Irish linen shirts are really nice. At least mine are, though a little mysterious at times. One's stiff and unyielding, the other's soft and eminently foldable. Same cleaners.)

Hi all,

 

Looking for some help with shoe selection for my wedding in July in Punta Cana, i have a natural linen suit with white linen shirt.. From pictures i have seen of other weddings i am debating not wearing a tie nor tucking in my shirt and going for a more casual look.

 

However i am stumped with my shoe selection, i have gone out looking at boat shoes, drivers and moccasins. While i have seen some really nice moccasins they are either to close to the colour of the suit or blueish grey. any help on selection would really be great!!

What is everyone's impression on the pants break in this picture? I have my own impression but I wanted to see what people's first thoughts were. Thanks!

Club Monaco polos are $22 right now, which is a steal IMO.

well as much as I hate to admit it as well, you may be right. have to see in person and get on sale because I'm pretty sure most of his shit is made overseas and hopefully not China ($95 for MK is silly). the best part of that link however is that guy's description of Michael Kors lol8[1].gif

Hey Pronxs,

 

This suit looks great for an interview.  I wouldnt worry about the color being too light.  In fact, correct me if my eyesight is blurred, but it does seem like more of a charcoal grey.  In any event, a grey suit is always a sure bet for an interview, as is a black.  Personally, I prefer to go with greys.  A blue shirt with a grey suit and a yellow tie always looks very smart for an interview, and if you want to really make a statement, wear a red tie - but again, that is more of a power statement.  Hope this helps.
