post #21736 of 28238

Hey all,

 

 

I need to put something together QUICK, but I'm not sure if it works.

 

Grey pants, burgundy loafers.

 

Does this work?

 

Thank you so much!

 

I also have black wingtips if that would be better. Kind of boring, but it's all I have right now. Ideally, would a lighter brown be the best bet?

Trout you must define the purpose, event, etc.

It's an unexpected, but very casual work meeting. Basically, I just need to make sure it works. For this particular event, it's not really about what's appropriate (it's pretty much just look decent), and more about putting together something that flows. In other words, forgetting the event, does this outfit work (burgundy and grey)? Or should I go with the black/grey? I would also add in the fact that it's partly an outside meeting, which makes me wonder if I should wear socks or not.

 

Thank you very much.

Burgundy loafers and gray odd pants are a nice combination. Do you have a light blue button- down collar shirt?

Is it inappropriate to have mismatched pants (solid grey) and vests (super-fine houndstooth)?


Thanks

Your groomsmen are going to be mistaken for the waiters. Don't do this.

I do, but it's not the greatest. I think the collar is off. I could be wrong, though. I'll post a picture: 

(the shirt isn't dirty, but the mirror needs a bit of a cleaning!)

It's inappropriate to wear pants and vests without a jacket, so you can do whatever you want.

I would like a bit of feedback on this suit.  How does it fit?  Should I have used a different tie color?

I was so focused on how horrible an idea it is to dress everyone in matching groomsmen's uniforms, that I failed to notice the awful "without a jacket" part. Good catch.

Yikes, can anyone answer my questions real quick? It's almost time to go!

No to be impatient, but I still don't know what I'm doing.

That shirt does not have a button-down collar. I am not a huge fan of the contrasting buttons, but I think i like it more than the white shirt. I suppose either one is fine with the gray pants and burgundy shoes.

Does anyone know whether is it possible for a tailor to alter this pair of tuxedo pant's hem width? It has a satin stripe which i'm guessing can be very tricky. They are currently measured at 22cm, I need them at 19cm.

If the lining pocket label of a jacket says Super 100s:

 

and if the other lining label says Super 150s:

 

 

is this a mistake on the manufacturers part? or is super 150s part of super 100s?

Where on the lining pocket label does it say "Super 100?" I see that it says "100," but mightn't this just as easily refer to it being 100% wool?
post #21750 of 28238
You are right. Only says 100. So does that mean 100% wool?
