What would be a good color of brown to go with charcoal and navy slacks, as well as denim on the rare occasion?

What was the URL of that site that scraped and filtered B&S classifieds with an easier to use user interface?

blues/greens on pink look great to me, too! and yeah re: grey jacket.

Charcoal gray pretty much requires a dark brown shoe. Dark brown also works well with navy. A lighter brown is generally the best choice for denim although no puppies will be killed if you wear dark brown shoes with denim.

The only aspect that would need altering on me is to have the sleeves lengthened. Obviously this leaves the sleeve buttons a fair distance away from the actual sleeve end! How far is too far?


Thanks.

1/4" either way in alteration is probably the most you would want to go without it looking weird. If your tailor is good enough they can lengthen or shorten from the shoulder.

Within the past year or so on a well-recycled menswear blog/Tumblr (Sartorialist? Die, Workwear? Put This On? I don't remember) I recall somebody posting about a bespoke sports coat/light outerwear piece that they saw at their tailor or some other shop. The picture featured the jacket on a hanger - it was brown and it appeared to be designed for someone who rode a bicycle. The most unique characteristic that comes to mind is that there was a large lower patch pocket that seemed to function as a newspaper holder, and I believe there was a loop or belt of fabric above said pocket to keep the paper/magazine in place. I also think the pocket may have been stitched on a slant due to the hunched posture of a bicyclist.

Sorry if this sounds ridiculous, does anyone have any recollection of this image/post? I was confident that I had saved the picture for future reference but now I cannot find it on my computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

These look like they are in decent shape, but hard to tell without a sole shot. Uppers look good though.

I would look for a matching belt to your boots.

Hi,
I want to ask what are the things that a tailor can fix on a OTR suit? Which measurement that I should make sure it fit to me when buying OTR so I can take it to the tailor later and get a perfect fit suit?
Also, any of you guys know a reputable and low-cost tailor around Seattle?
post #16767 of 28509
The fit of the shoulders is the most important thing to look for in OTR.
post #16768 of 28509

Cross posting from Howard Yount affiliate thread as they are on vacation and I'd really like an answer about this. My tailor pointed out numerous instances of this loose stitching appearing along the inseam of the trousers on both sides. When sitting, the seam visibly opens. The pants are nowhere near too tight. Is this an unacceptable level of quality or is this normal? Thanks in advance.

 

The "Insert Image" tool is throwing an error, so posting the direct link: http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y262/Alpha90/wiwt8132012-4.jpg

Also chest size. Most people buy suits where the shoulders fit well, but the chest is too tight making the lapels bow outward.

Why doesn't your tailor just re stitch them where they are loose?

Thank you for the effort, unfortunately that is not it. It was only a jacket, not a suit. It was brown, and I don't believe there were any pictures of it being worn.
