I think the question-thread in SW&D would be more appropiate for this question smile.gif

What would you pay for this fabric per yard: Zegna 150 Ultrafine cashemere/wool blend(11.5–15 µm)? Colors can be chosen after order(black, navy, grey, etc.)

A friend and tailor just became an official distributor here in a thirdworld country I'm in for business. He made me a Zegna suit and wants to me to bring some yards to the states to sell. He wants to sell for over $250 per yard.....reasonable?

I suggest you lurk on the forum for a while longer before you buy anything...

Affects the texture and how warm the suit will wear too. A low twist yarn, like you would find in a flannel or a tweed, will be fuzzier, trap heat better, and be warmer. Higher twist yarns will allow you to weave something like fresco, which has fairly wide spacing between threads, allowing it to breathe. Try that with a low twist yarn, and you wind up with the durability of tissue paper, though it would probably be very soft and comfy to wear.

Perfectly fine. It'll still be a solid navy suit, the fabric will just have a little depth to it from the basketweave.

Hey,

 

I'm invited to a wedding next wednesday. Have this Navy plain Suit with this Shirt.

 

So I need a tie and a pocket square for it - What do you recommend? The rest of the guests are not strict formal worn.

I'm wondering what is the right collar for me. I have a normal/oval shaped face, but it's rather large.
I'm thinking I should be getting a semi-cutaway with a larger collar. Does anyone know where I can get shirts with larger collars?
I'm not really considering going bespoke.
THanks.

With a midnight blue single breasted tuxedo with black grograin lapels, is the vest supposed to be midnight blue (made from the same material as the jacket) or black? And if black, what kind of fabric?

It depends on the type of vest. If you get an all-silk vest, then it should match the lapels in both color, material and texture. Some vests have a wool body though. In that case, I am not sure. Either way, the lapels of the vest should match the lapels of the jacket.

Solid Blue - silk, knit, or grenadine tie. Simple and elegant. If it's not too formal, as I think you said (not strict formal worn?), go with the knit. White pocket square would be my choice, but I am not adventurous in the area.

How slim is the easy fit of John Smedley's sweaters? None of the slim fits are on sale which is why I ask.

Just trying to get acquainted with the site and  proper etiquette....

 

Is it considered bad form to mention or ask opinions about  businesses  that are not affiliated?  I understand if this is the case, I just wanted to know the ropes.

 

Again just trying to learn my way around, thanks in advance, R.

If you're on a budget, you should check out Charles Tyrwhitt and T.M. Lewin.  Both sites have sales going on and offer a wide selection of shirts with varying collars.  Given your facial description, I would recommend a semi-cutaway or classic collar.  Given that both companies listed above offer free returns, I would try out both collars and see which one is more flattering.  Hope that helps.
