Thank you for answering. 

 

I'm not very muscular so I guess my shoulders are pretty small. When it comes to shirts I usually use custom S or M slim fit (PRL). The problem with sweaters in size S is that they risk getting a bit to short. As I said I'm 6'. Do you reckon a S J. Crew would be long enough :)?

I'm 145 lbs 6' tall and wondering whether I'm supposed to be a S o M. 

Please gain 10 lbs.

I would think small might not be long enough in the arms for you.

you also probably have decent shoulders but just are a thin person.

Is this flannel meant to be tucked in? I never realized how curved the hem is. It's a thicker material so I thought it was more casual considering the pattern. I feel it looks odd. If it should be worn untucked, is this particular one too big on me?

In general what kind of hem do I want to look for in untucked casual shirts? Or should I just take shirts to a tailor and ask for a more casual hem? Not speaking of dress shirts.

Looking for the width of lapels on BB Black Fleece sport coats, specifically the camel hair one on sale at the moment.

Could I wear a dark brown woven belt with dark brown oxfords as part of a business casual outfit?

Thinking OCBD, Epaulet french blue trousers, dark brown captoe oxfords.

What are SF thought about Prince of Wales suit? This one is the RLPL ... English made... English cut. I believe the English cut is more of a square shape than the Italian, am I correct?

Perhaps a bit more contrast? How does this work:

Please keep in mind it's part of a business casual outfit, I wouldn't think of wearing this combo with a suit of any kind.

^^

I wouldn't go for it. Sub in split toes or loafers that match that belt, or maybe do a non-woven belt to match the shoes.

PoW is a classic suit color, but its definitely a more advanced fabric. I wouldn't buy it until you have several others.

There are a variety of English cuts from the A&S drape cut to the Huntsman strong military cut. I wouldn't say any of them are boxy, though.

Not a fan of woven belts.

Hello again!

 

I've just picked up this 3-piece at a steal. not really familiar with how patterns work if I'm honest. 

 

I think a cream/ecru/beige shirt, but what sort of tie/square works? I have seen some dark brown woolens I liked, some plain, some with coloured diagonal stripes weaved through. Some brown and coloured tweed. not sure if they'd work. 

 

here's the suit, it's a touch lighter in the flesh.  horrible yellow lamp bulb. it's a sort of dark camel, with grey and chocolate check on.

My personal opinion is that those shoes are a bit formal for business casual. You can certainly wear them, but it wouldn't be my first choice. I do like the belt though.

Hey guys,

What are some dress shirts and ties that are absolutely necessary for a guy? Looking to build my wardrobe as a young gentleman who's both stylish and professional.

One white shirt, two light blue shirts, one of which is button down. A navy tie and a burgundy tie with a decent texture (not shiny). Brooks Brothers is a safe bet as far as the ties go. If you have a bit more money to spend, go with Sam Hober.

I say a navy tie and a grey tie (for the white shirt)
