I would say that a lounge suit (country look) would look better with loafers if you are set on the look. Business suits ( city look ) would favor shoes with closed lacing ( oxfords ).
Just a guide, hope that helped...

Yes, that clears it up! Thanks for a straightforward and clear answer.

It's kinda funny, because my loafers are more $ and nicer then my one pair of lace up dress shoes. This gives me an excuse to purchase some nice dress shoes.

It's a slippery slope, welcome to SF. You're going to like it here...

You should buy a Rubinacci suit and two pairs of good English shoes.

[quot% name="Stone34" url="/t/79716/ask-a-question-get-an-answer-post-all-quick-questions-here/15675#post_5557403"]Hey has anyone ever bought a Made to Measure suit... and when it was delivered it was way too small in the pants and jacket?
What did you do??

This suit is beyond being fixed to fit me... if it was too big it could be tailored to fit.  But too small, you can't make it longer or bigger.

Any thoughts?
Thanks~

Is it one of the online MTM or did you actually visit an actual store?

Check the return policy and any policy that would enable you%2pfor a remake - refund.

If it slightly too small/short, if could be some allowance left to make it longer/bigger.

I have a basic charcoal suit and a basic navy suit, and I'm looking to pick up a couple of more "staple" suits. This seems like a good deal, no? Should I snatch it up?

Form the brief look I took it seems like a decent deal but I would look for something outside of the navy realm since you already have a navy suit. Perhaps in the brown family? Also, when buying a used suit check the crotch for wear. Either have the seller send you a pic or ask if there is any wear in the crotch area. Those pants could be really thin down there.

Why are neckties that are 2.25" to 2.75" inches are in style now than neckties that are 4" wide?

Why are narrow lapel suits/sportcoats and short collar dress shirts are in style than wider ones these days?

I can only venture a guess that it is because media is pushing them. I don't know about short collar dress shirts maybe more spread collar, I feel that those have not really changed unless you are comparing it to the 70s. I think the narrow trend probably started with Mad Men.

Does anyobody know who makes Oliver Spencer shoes? They're made in Northamptonshire so I'm thinking AS...

For the same reason that anything is in style at any time.

It definitely did not start with mad men. I would say the height of Hedi Slimane for Dior Homme started the waif silhuoette with narrow everything. I would say somewhere around 2004.

Quick question about using the suit as I'm fairly new on here. How do you post an article to the classifieds section?
