Now here's my question...

 

First of: I am 27 and I look like someone who's 21. mwink[1].gif

 

For my wedding (summer, no tux) I'll be wearing; a slim 3-piece navy suit from Tiger of Sweden:

The vest is not shown, but everything is the same S120 Cerutti fabric.

 

 

 

The ? is

Will this bowtie by Collared Greens

- with the reversed green side "out" and navy down the middle,

combined with this silk pocket square from Berg & Berg ???

be too matchy and/or not give enough variation in the color palette, which is navy (suit), brown (shoes+belt) and ivory (shirt)...

 

I wanted to have silver and/or brown in the Bow tie/Pocket square combo, but all four colors were either impossible to find or way to busy-looking! 

 

BTW: One of the "themes" that we have been using in invitations and decorations nature/green, so that is the reason I am rating the green combo higher than silver...

 

 

Shoes and belt for those who want to see all the details:

EDIT::

I put in the wrong belt to begin with. This is the one that matches the shoes:

The shoes and belt does have the same hue/color

More of a tailor-etiquette question:

My father ordered brown, linen MTM jacket from Sartoria Partenopea. It is too short in my opinion (but he agreed for this length - so there is nothing to do about that I guess). The main problem are the pockets though - flap instead of patched. It's their mistake. For me this is a crucial misunderstanding and I would request my money back (the down payment) - or if that is not possible, I would at least not pay the rest. What do you say? Ordering another one is not an option since they struggle to do anything right.


I guess my dad is going to pay, because he wants to avoid saying no...

I know the shoes are below SF standards - I would have liked a better sole, but I really like the design, and the future mrs. said that they were the best of the ones I had to pick from... Out of which some were suede... and most were cap toes or wingtips..... 

 

 

The belt is the correct width for a "dress" belt. It is not "streetwear" size...

wrong colour...

MTB-85 - yes I think it's too matchy matchy, and too much navy. If you're having a green theme, how about this green seersucker bow, and maybe just a plain white ps. Also, I'd go for black shoes and belt.

Any thoughts...

 

I've tried on alot of suits the past few weeks and even had one Made to Measure.

From Brooks Brothers, Armani, Joseph Abboud, Z Zegna, Boss Black... And I even bought a Made to Measure Thick as Thieves suit which came out incredibly wrong beyond repair and unwearable but they were nice enough to REFUND my money.  The owner took my measurements in person so it was their fought. I was extremely disappointed because I was so looking forward to this suit, but at the very least I want to GIVE Thick as Thieves PROPS for refunding me.  THANK YOU!!!

 

That being said... I know everyone here for the most part does NOT like Boss suits... but the Suit that so far fits me best is the Boss Black Jam Sharp.

 

And at this point I want to buy it (it will be on sale for about $500) but everyone keeps saying don't buy Boss.  Any thoughts?

 

Also there Boss Black has a similar cut suit called the Hour / Sharp (Dark Grey) that is normally $1,000 on sale for $660.

http://store-us.hugoboss.com/mens-suits/traveler-collection/hour-sharp-two-button-suit/hbna50219894,en_US,pd.html&cgid=21100#!i%3D5%26color%3D021_Dark-Grey

 

And I like the Hour / Jam even more then the Boss NAVY since I'm looking for Dark Grey / Charcoal.

 

So does anyone have a good Boss story that could re-assure me to buy it or should I just run away from Boss?

 

What I'm thinking is BOSS makes really good fitting suits and good style... but perhaps the quality is NOT good and doesn't last?

Is that why so many do NOT like BOSS?

 

Thanks~

I think the sleeves need to be slimmed down, and possibly the waist?

What do you guys think? Thanks

post #15895 of 27513

I recently bought a pair of suede loafers from BM, which were half a size too big (compared to my usual size UK6) but they fit snugly when purchased. Now, especially after I have put in shoe trees (woodlore's ultra S), they have expanded to the point of being uncomfortable. My other shoes (leather loafers from moreschi) have also experienced the same expansion, though not as severe. Other than utilizing insoles, is there any way of 'shrinking' the shoes and prevent the heel area from expanding or will they adapt to my feet as time goes by?

 

Thanks in advance.

post #15896 of 27513

"boat shoes" do these need to be worn with socks? 

 

I've got sweaty feet so soles get destroyed but even with socks, it seems even worse. 

 

That's not the purpose of my post but I wanted to mention that too in case someone had a fix. 

 

Should you wear socks or not? 

 

Gratzi

MTM just plugs your measurements into modifying an existing pattern or into a computer drafting system then produces the entire garment from that pattern. Bespoke is a much more involved process which involves drafting a pattern from scratch by hand, and basting the fabric together for at least one fitting (sometimes more) and making adjustments to the fit before finalising the garment. Bespoke also tends to use more handwork and higher quality construction, rather than industrial/factory methods, though this is not always the case (some MTM is very high quality).

Hey guys, I can not decide which shoes should I buy. Priorities - versatility and it should be mostly for casual wear. I have two shoes in my scope, please check it and let me know what you think. Thanks a lot.
