Yes, see the way it describes the lining as "cupro 100" - i.e. 100% Cupro. Same would apply to the description for the outer fabric - i.e. 100% wool.

I need some medium to dark grey pants to wear with a navy jacket. I was considering the bowery in heathered cotton or charcol wool from Jcrew, but they'll take to long to ship there's some sort of delay. 

 

Can someone reccomend somewhere else to buy pants from or any good brands? I don't want to spend more than 100$ if possible, and I'm looking for something with some texture, so no chinos.

I am going to need my suit for a graduation party, and I need to purchase a new tie and shirt for my suit. Besides, I am not good at buying ties or matching shirts with ties and PS. I am going to wear black shoes with this charcoal, lightly striped suit. 

PS: Ignore the ugly tie and the shirt.

 

 

What kind of tie and color should I be looking for? 

 

Thanks in advance!

anyone know what "blocking" an article of clothing involves, and if it is advisable to use this to address a garment shrinking?

 

though i didn't think it possible, after dry cleaning a suit at madame paulette, my made-to -measure pants are slightly smaller than their non-dry-cleaned made-to-measure counterparts

 

the person from m.p. said they'd try to 'block it' back to original size if they had another pair of pants to compare to- 

 

any thoughts?

 

thank you

Possibilities are almost endless. I'd wear a light blue shirt and then almost any dark tie will be great. I'd go with a tie that has a distinct pattern. White linen pocket square.

You might have to take them to a tailor and let them out a bit. Looks like they shrunk, although I'm not sure why. I thought dry cleaning didn't do that.

I find it hard to belive enough people even know what John Lobbs are to create a market for counterfit . I could be wrong but you never know . Check in with one of the John Lobb threads they even have one dedicated to double monks

I lost about 10 pounds, but I wanted to see whether this bespoke suit will still fit me properly. Inputs are appreciated it....Also, how do I rotate these pictures correctly? I rotated correctly via power point but these files reverted back to their initial picture taking angle after posting them online...I apologize for the inconvenience. 

 

I'm thinking about slimming the pants up a bit...any other thoughts?

^ The jacket looks great from the front.  I'm not sure what's going on under the armpits in the 2nd photo.  I'd clean that up if possible.  I'd definitely slim the pants a bit.  I'd also probably shorten the pants.  Especially given the narrowness of the leg opening.

Can someone help me with some ties that would go with this shirt? I have dark navy blue, black, navy blue, etc suits but am really having trouble figuring out a good tie combo with this blue shirt

It's a blue dress shirt. There are precisely 8 zillion ties that would go perfectly fine with it. And just to make it even more impossible to give you a meaningful recommendation, you've helpfully chosen not to indicate what else you might be wearing, or what the setting might be.

I'm sorry. I've answered hundreds of questions in this thread, and I genuinely try to be friendly about it. I do not in any way enjoy coming off as an asshole who gives people a hard time over a simple question.

But come on - with 130 posts to your credit, surely you can appreciate that you've got to give people a little more to go on than a picture of a fairly ordinary blue shirt. It's like posting to a gourmet forum, saying that you like cooked food, and asking for restaurant suggestions. Just not nearly enough relevant information.

What do you guys think about this bag in term of construction and quality? Is the price $100 included shipping justified (the seller said that it was handmade in UK, and it was used)

This is appears to be based on the classic English school satchel used by 7 or 8 years olds at posh schools and at the moment by hipsters in their twenties.
