http://www.ebay.com/itm/GIORGIO-TUXEDO-MILANO-PL-SB2-ITALIAN-MENS-SUIT-WOOL-40S-/190553265041?pt=US_CSA_MC_Suits&hash=item2c5ddc1391

is this complete junk or maybe worth the 175$ price for a black tie event I have to attend?

The ad says it is fully canvased but it looks kind of cheap. I've never heard of the maker. I'd be suspicious.

Dear Stylers,

 

How much to ask for this Lanvin shirt? Got it as gift. Condition is approx 95%.

 

Thanks!

I have a deep grey suit with a bit of sheen to it, and I'm intending to wear a black & royal blue on white pinstripe shirt with it.  Can anyone give me tie suggestions?

 

Not the actual suit, but this is the general idea.  A bit deeper grey.

 

 

The shirt pattern.

 

Thanks!

I notices that and, for the price, I am certainly suspicious. Do you think it's a better bet than going with a 299$ men's wear house tux though? Or renting one for 120? I prefer buying so I can at least tailor it to fit me properly, but do not want to spend more than 300.

The shirt pattern.


Thanks!

Solid Navy or Burgundy?

I'd never endorse Men's Wearhouse, but that eBay seller also has a few negatives with comments about the cheapness of some other suits.

Getting a deal on a tux is tough when you need one right away. Renting for this event, but then saving for something better and continuing to patrol eBay may be your best bet. Good luck.

How does this look? 

 

My only fear is that the suit has a very subtle brown hue to it, and by that I mean it's more brown than it would be black or blue.  Fabric swatch below for a better look at the color.

That's a very spread collar.

The tie and knot is bad. Smaller knot, different tie. Also don't wear a striped shirt with a striped suit. Too much going on. Wear either a light blue shirt and navy tie, or a white shirt with a navy, silver, or black tie.

The tie is horrendous (looks 1980s from a thrift store). Also, learn to tie with a dimple. Both shirt & jacket have small stripes which is a big no. For those who are new with pattern coordination, the safe bet is to have a solid pattern on one garment.

If suit is a little brown then an off white (or cream) solid shirt will work and maybe a brown textured tie, or rust.

Knot of tie: try the old school boy knot called a four in hand rather than half windsor. Can get a dimple by pinching as you narrowing towards the neck when doing up.

i'm a total disaster in clothing, so some advice wouldn't hurt.  i need everything, shoes , shirt, blazer?, pants, belt.

sounds like just "summer outdoor wear". where in the caribbean is this?

depending on the answer, a guayabera would be the traditional (local) choice biggrin.gif
white, long-sleeved, don't tuck it in, button almost all the buttons, and please wear an undershirt!
get linen if you can, to avoid being see-through. avoid the cheap cotton/poly blends. color details on the embroidery are fine (some really nice ones have small flowers), but keep it simple. you should be able to easily get one in-country for under $50. if you don't want to go this route, then a white/pale shirt is sufficient.
jacket is optional if guayabera, but otherwise something light/mid grey, light blue, or cream/tan (in no particular order).

as it's casual, you have some room to play with on the trouser front: chinos, or mid-grey cotton are pretty standard; whatever goes with the jacket. linen would be great except most linen trousers are too baggy gringo-on-holiday casual & not sharp enough. for shoes, sounds like regular office-dress shoes, fancy casual, or a nice pair of loafers, probably in brown though nothing wrong with black or cordovan if it goes with the trousers.

if outdoors in summer, consider a panama hat.

Guys,

Honest opinion please. Does my beloved Canali DB 6X2 look a bit dated? Specifically the lapel width. Thanks.

No, it does not!
