Who makes a good pair of chinos? I would prefer to not pay too much over $100 per pair.

All,

 

Need help ID'ing who makes this RLPL shoe:

 

 

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Any guidance on what color tie / suit would go with this shirt? 

 

http://www.amazon.com/Barba-Napoli-Lavender-Purple-Shirt/dp/B003ZWVJUU

 

It's a little darker and less versatile than I expected when I purchased.  Not sure if it can safely be worn with a business suit.  Thanks!

While not my favorite, I might like a black grenadine tie and a grey suit with it.

Several people in this thread have recommended BB Milanos.  They're normally $90 but on sale for $39 right now (plus tax and shipping brings it closer to $50 or $55).

The buttons are not that special, but they are solid black, and i don't care for them on an odd jacket:

As mentioned earlier, 3 roll 2, black jacket, side vents, besom flap pockets. Any suggestions on buttons? Or possibly a good place to buy jacket buttons online?

I would use regular dark horn buttons. The jacket has a real identity crisis because it is a twill weave, besom flaps that point to businesswear, yet it is black which makes it an outlier, and doesn't have trousers. With horn buttons it will look like an orphaned suit jacket, but it might look too "fashiony" or flashy, or tacky if you put like smoked MOP buttons on it. I wouldn't do anything flashier than smoked MOP, imo. If you do metal buttons it will look sort of military, or costumey. I wouldn't go there.

Got a new tie and pocket square -- wondering if they are too "matchy"  

 

I didn't match the pattern, but they are both red (veering towards purple) with yellow accents.  The red is a little different in each (the square being a little "redder" than the tie)

 

 

Thoughts?  I'm wearing this with a dark suit.

 

 

 

 

Thanks for any advice.

How much should it cost (midwest/non-coast dollars) to slim the sleeves of a sportcoat?

Where is it made? Italy? What does the heel look like?

Question:

 

Tomorrow I have an outdoors wedding / Barn wedding w/o any AC.  I'm not the smallest of guys, but I am a sweater..  I'll bring an extra shirt, but at what point is the jacket excused?  How do you deal with 100*+ weather?

 

Thanks

The jacket is always excused in 100+ degree weather.

Bill's Khakis is pretty good. M3 is their slim fit, while M2 is more traditional. I wear an M3 in my regular size (meaning, no need to size up or down for compensation). I think they're better built than Brooks' chinos.

If you Google around, you can find them for something like $115. A seller on Amazon is often having a sale on them at that price. Sometimes they go on Sierra Trading Post for something like $65 a pair.

Check Cordings, Pakeman, and Hoggs of Fife for traditionally cut models; Epaulet New York and Howard Yount for slim fits; and Ralph Lauren and Brooks Brothers as well. The last two - RL and BB - will have a range of models for different cuts.
