As for the jacket, all I've got is a navy double breasted worsted wool....

 

Because brown is a neutral color, brown / khaki can go with most colors.  I would personally go for a regular to darker shade blue as it would give the lighter khaki color a stark contrast, which could look really nice. For more insights, you can visit my blog at http://suitupdressup.wordpress.com

I only own Saddleback Leather and Tumi leather bags so if you have any questions about them I can try to help out.  Otherwise, happy shopping!

Thank you for the input.
I will have a look at the companies.

The hook eyelets of my Islays are ripping my pant hems apart. Does anyone else have this problem when wearing these boots (or any that have the hook eylets)? Any recommendations to avoid this (hem tape or something like that)?

I do need some more mid-grey pants and thought linen would be nice for spring/summer weather  if it ever hits (live in Wisconsin), but now wondering if I would be better of getting a gabardine pair now and a flannel in the fall for more versatility.

Quite dandy-ish for Wisconsin, but I'd go for a slimmer model. Other than the fit, the material is good for summer wear. I love linen/wool blends. Maybe try some Lands' End next time? I haven't tried their tailored fit yet, but I know that the leg opening is 8", and that's neither too slim, nor too wide.

One of my shirts has an annoying tab collar. I'm sick of it. Can I cut it off with scissors/a serrated blade, or will the fabric fray? It's a pretty rugged shirt to begin with, so it doesn't have to be perfect.

I got impatient and just cut it off. And then I thought I could fuse the loose threads by burning them, but it didn't work. Looks like I'm going to a tailor.

Yeah, that was a pretty stupid thing to do.

I've got a question. If your sleeves are too long, can the tailor make the length just nice and keep the rest the same?

Yes. Changing the sleeve length is not going to change other measurements.

What material pants is acceptable to wear with a linen sportscoat?

post #20967 of 29108

Saw this cotton PRL jacket on ebay - sadly it has a stain. I asked the seller, but he doesn't know what the stain is from confused.gif jacket hasn't been dry cleaned and seller has made no attempts to remove the stain. You guys think it could be removed?

Unvented sport coat,
Go/No go?

 

Attolini one, in my exact measurements.

 

Also wondering whether it is as uncomfortable as so many claim, or not!

Your preference. I'd say no though. The only think I like unvented are tuxedos.

I'm not trying to be rude, but what else could possibly be affected by changing the length of sleeves?
The only thing I can think of is cuff buttons on a jacket, and perhaps gauntlets on a shirt, but every tailor knows how to reset gauntlets and cuffs.
