But the sport coat that I have totally cover my butt, so perhaps 0.25" shorter won't make the suit look silly on me?

It doesn't sound like it and I think you'll be fine.

I saw this recently and have been searching to find this jacket (or whole attire) but with no luck.

I came across it and very much like it. Does anyone know what make it is?

Cheers,

Thanks. What do you think about the price? Is $350 for a solid charcoal a good deal?

Hey guys. I just graduated and got a job where I would be flying around a lot to warm/hot countries. I am looking for a timeless light sportcoat to travel with. I just don't know where to start. Im 5'7 medium build. Any recommendations?

You got a great price for the suit.

Cheers,

I would stick with a standard/turndown collar. This will hide the black band of the bow tie as it wraps around your neck. Your shirt should still be of the formal variety however (either pleated or pique bib). See here for more information: http://www.blacktieguide.com/Classic/Classic_Shirts.htm

What do you guys think of this sportscoat? I think the sleeves are a touch short, and the armholes are a bit low, but otherwise I am looking for some general advice. Also I just threw this over my sunday bumming clothes so please disregard t-shirt and jeans.. may (will?) be worn with slacks and a buttoned down shirt.  Obviously this isn't a MTM coat, so I'm not expecting an absolutely perfect fit, but for a few bucks it didn't seem like a bad purchase.

Guys any way to remove marks on shoes left on by Saphir? I accidentally forgot to spread it around and let it dry...instead left it on for a day and there seems to be marks left over from it.

Reno may be able to get it out.  Worst case scenario you can use reno-mat, although its a bit more abrasive.

Thanks for the reply.  I always thought the tie band looked silly, especially the pre-tied versions that I wear.

I think this may be similar to what you have encountered.  Back in the day (military) we used to burn in our polish and sometimes it would harden.  I used a nylon stocking to knock down the ridges. Use a motion like the shoe shine guys use with the rag.

 

Cheers,

Cheers,

Next step, stop wearing a pre-tied bow tie.
