No. Maybe they're wider than the current fashion for extremely narrow lapels, but they're certainly not ridiculously wide by classic menswear standards.

I wouldn't do it. I'd leave them as they are.

If for some reason I wanted narrow lapels, I'd have probably just purchased a narrow lapelled tweed jacket in the first place. That's usually cheaper and easier and yields better results than buying something else, and having it re-done to suit me. After all, it's not like tweed jackets are all that difficult to find, that one need settle.

2. The inside label says Hartford Clothes for I. Rosen Memphis. Google turned up nothing.

I googled I. Rosen Memphis, and the very first result was a link to a story from 2007, about I. Rosen going out of business after 97 years. http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2007/nov/20/ending-a-97-year-tradition/

As for Hartford Clothes, the name doesn't ring a bell for me, but obviously they made the jacket in question. for sale by I. Rosen. If you search for something like "hartford clothes" "mens clothing" I suppose you'll come up with at least a few relevant results. What, exactly, do you want to know about them?

Hi,

 

Can someone give me an idea how big the boxes are in which online MTM suits are delivered? I already know for Indochino, so maybe for some other one.

 

I am asking because I can't have too large a box shipped to me.

 

Regards!

Hey guys, just picked this up from an op store was wondering if you guys could help identify what collection it's from and maybe make out what the faded label means in terms of sizing. It's more navy than the pictures suggest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cheers for your help guys

Light beige trousers with black shoes? is it a no-no?

post #21560 of 29420

Not necessarily; just wear a black belt.  Dark shirt, beige linen trousers, black monks...dinner on a warm summer evening...works for me.  But browns and tans have a warmer look and complement beige tones nicely, especially in the daytime.

Thank you, but these shoes has no ones available in tan color.

yes, the idea is black shoes and black shirt with light beige trousers

 

Thank you for your opinion!

Anyone have any idea how to get the wrinkles, and stretches, out of my linen sports coat? Half lined, fully canvassed. I'm guessing the wrinkles with a steamer. How about the stretches though? Like on the breast pocket.

It's your graduation.  By all means wear something cheerful, but "playful" will just make you look like a douche.  Dress beautifully, it's the beginning of the rest of your life.  This is the "Classic Menswear" forum, dude, go look at the "What are you wearing right now?" thread for some ideas on how gentlemen of style actually dress (and ignore anyone in jeans, cargo pants, or no socks  as part of their "classic" ensemble - we're back to douche land).  There are some really well-dressed people over there, some of them just out of college like you.  You don't have to try to be "fun" by wearing a stupid tie.  If you're fun, it's in your personality.  But if you're dressed like a dick, your personality might well be overlooked.

So camo tie = douche?

I always thought all camo was kind of on the lame side... (to phrase it nicely since I know there's nice people here that do wear camo).

 

I never liked the idea of trying to style up something soldiers wear as a uniform in combat. Plus, the stuff people wear as camo is all the really lame looking stuff. Get the good looking stuff if you want to do it at all, Multicam. :-)

Thanks for pointing out the shirt size. I went to the store and tried on a small shirt for the first time in my life and it fit. I had lost 25 pounds but was still buying my old size I guess. 

 

I exchanged some recent purchases for a small size and they look significantly better.

Exactly. ;)  But if it must be these, go blue.

Novelty ties in general, camouflaged anything.  Yes, just don't.  You're asking the Classic Menswear forum...so expect classic menswear to be the generally approved point of reference.

Not necessarily - depends on the shirt, your style, and I'd confine it to the evening.  But I'm thinking Indigo would be nice. :)

I'm curious what the opinions are on a suit under 2000. As a graduation present, I think my wife may be willing to splurge (to our standards) and I would like it to be on a high quality suit. Right now I live in New York, and as I plan on leaving the State, I'd like to take advantage of the great shops around here. 

 

So my question is, what are the opinions on the best suit I can buy in that price range in New York City.
