No, to change the roll line on a jacket permanently the collar would need to adjusted, which isn't possible on a RTW jacket.

I understand this sites feelings toward the quality and branding of Superdry. I am looking for shirts and jackets. I no longer wish to have so much branded apparel but I haven't found anything that comes close to the fit superdrys products provide me. Slim tailoring and long arms. Does anyone know of any other places I may looks for something similar? Preferably ones that wouldn't require heavy alteration. I have tried Brooks Brothers, J crew, nordstroms, basically I look everywhere. But arms are always too short and if I can size up to get the arms to fit then the body size is way too big. Any info anyone can provide would be helpful. Maybe I need to look to more English style designers. But I don't know where to start.

Sidd,

welcome to Styleforum. Can you give us some more information on your measurements? That should allow forum members to help you more easily.

Hello all, 

 

   I have been here quite a while and made good use of the knowledge I have found but this will be my first post.

 

   I have a new "blazer/SC" I say this as it appears to be more of an orphaned suit jacket upon closer inspection. None the less it is a very good fit and fairly good quality so I would like to make use of it. What I am interested in is opinions on which color pants to wear with it. I have included a image of the jacket as well as the wool pants I have at my disposal. 

 

 

The jacket is a subtle plaid, predominantly a medium gray. The pants available to me are from right to left:

1. Dark charcoal 

2. Charcoal (slight texture gabardine)

3. Gray (worsted)

4. Medium Olive

5. Medium Brown

6. Taupe/Tan (Calvary Twill)

 

I have a few other pairs but they are out at the cleaners presently. Any quick opinions would be appreciated. 

 

Thank you, 

 

M

First time poster. I have two questions about jeans. I've been wearing a pear of Levi's 508s in "rigid envy" for about 3 months and they fit relatively well. The only issue is after I washed them for the first time they became too short. I've also been reading a lot about raw denim during these last couple of months and have my eyes on a pair of ST-100Xs from 3sixteen. Anyway, I guess my questions are: "How does the fit compare between these two jeans?" and "If I purchase the ST-100Xs, are there any special precautions I should take if they need to be tailored?"

Might want to try the Streetwear & Denim board, will get better responses.

Will do. Sorry about that.

post #19612 of 28736

I read SF fairly often, but I don't post very often, partially because I find it time consuming to find replies to what I write.

 

I'm curious what the rationale is behind having so many large on-going threads rather than having separate sub-sections for them? e.g. this thread being a sub-section of Classic Menswear. That would have the advantage of being able to easily skip content that you don't care about and being able to see all of the replies to your specific thread.

hi all,

I have a christening this Saturday and its due to be approx. 30 degrees Celsius. It's not formal enough to wear suit to it, I was hoping to wear my new AE Walnut strands.

My strands are the first pair of walnut shoes that I own and I have no idea on how to match them. How does this look? I'm wearing my chinos and was planning on wearing a new Ralph Lauren green stripe shirt.

Any feedback appreciated

Thank you. 

Last year I travelled to Austria - and it seemed very common for middle aged men to have tote bags. On my return to London, I seemed to see them more than I used to - obviously because I was aware of them and was looking out for them.

does this look weird?

 

i recently got a white polo shirt as a gift, and it was kinda too big for me.

 

so i decided to wear it with my beige sweater. does this look weird to you guys?

 

any suggestions?

 

 

Personally I wouldn't match this with a beige sweater, as the colours are too close - it can have the risk of making the sweater look mis coloured or even dirty. 

Try a bold black, or perhaps a navy - of course colours like red will match nicely, however I would still to the darker colours unless you want to make a bold statement. 

 

Hope this helps :)

If you are going golfing, yachting, etc then I think It works fine, but for casual wear I would not match these up- I agree with the ideas given above. Also I would recommend against wearing the collar outside of the sweater. Just my tastes though. Good luck.

Those chinos are waaaaaay too slim. I personally wouldn't wear those shoes with them either. That color is a hard one to work with and the style has a bit of an identity crisis; while a captoe oxford the brogueing and color is a bit of a head scratcher.

Yes, there are tons of them in Park Slope, where hipsters go to die!
